Can you use a down draft as an updraft furnace?
yes u can if u are good with duct work put a down draft furnace in a basement and pipe it up one floor well not recommended it will work i did this to help a lady get threw winter who had low funds and it has worked quite well u need to build a custom box for the furnace to sit on to make this work and pipe directly from box and use smallest duct work u can i.e mobile home duct work or 4 to 6 inch

An updraft is rising air inside a cloud. An updraft is formed bywarm air rising into the cooler air above it.
What was the biggest bird that ever lived my mom said there was an extinct bird that used updrafts to get into the air and glide down slowly.She said they were so big that you could ride them.?
Your Mom was talking about the Argentavis Magnificens, a type of prehistoric condor and one of the largest birds ever to exist. That bird had a wingspan of 20 feet and weighed about 150 pounds. This report should tell you some facts.\n. \nhttp://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,287846,00.html?sPage=fnc….scitech/evolution\n. \nThe worlds biggest land bird was the Moa, native to New Zealand, which looked like a brown ostrich. Moa could grow to a astounding 12 feet (3.6m) and could weigh about 250kg (550lb). Though officially it is extinct, people believe a Moa could be hiding in the dense bush of the South island.

Yes, hurricanes may have an updraft. The most severe storms cancause a flat updraft, which causes the hurricane to build speed.
Mainly convection I should think, if it transfers heat to a water or air heating system. There will be some radiation and conduction to the area immediately surrounding it.
Modern glassblowing involves three furnaces.. 'The Furnace' holds the molten glass. . 'The Glory Hole' reheats the glass between molding/blowing processes. . 'The Annealer' is a 'cooling furnace'. The cooling strengthens the final product.
A down draft kiln is a furnace where the flue (exit for burned gases) is the located near bottom of the fire box. This type of furnace requires a tall chimney to produce enough draft (or air flow) and typically produces even heat distribution through out the fire box.
\nA current of air which is moving upwards - generally because it is warmer than the air above it.
Downdrafts are damaging winds on or near the ground. They are called downbursts or microbursts if caused by a thunderstorm which they usually are

Iron ore or Haematite (Fe3O2), Carbon in the form of 'Coke', and Limestone (Calcium Carbonate 'CaCO3') are all used in the blast furnace. Iron Ore is melted down with coke, the coke burns heat into the furnace. Oxygen gas is blasted in from the sides. The carbon (C) and oxygen (O2) react to form car…bon dioxide gas (CO2). At higher temperatures more carbon (C) is reacted with the carbon dioxide(CO2) to create carbon monoxide (2CO). The carbon monoxide 'steals' the oxygen from the iron oxide (Fe3O2), reducing the iron oxide to iron. Due to the impurities in the iron, it is called 'pig iron'. Limestone (CaCO3) is added to remove the impurities from the iron. The limestone (CaCO3) reacts with mainly silicate in the iron, and becomes calcium silicate (CaSiO3) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Calcium silicate is known as 'slag' and is used for construction. (MORE)

The iron produced by a blast furnace, called pig iron, is not very useful. It is about 96% iron and contains impurities, mainly of carbon. This makes pig iron very brittle. However, we can treat the iron from the blast furnace to remove some of the carbon.
I'm assuming that by "down draft furnace" you mean a counterflow or downflow furnace. This furnace takes its "cold air return" at the top, and blows the warm air out the bottom (typically, into ductwork that runs under the floor). Older downflow furnaces were dedicated to that configuration, and co…uld not be mounted in other positions. Nowadays, most furnace manufacturers make "multi-poise" furnaces. They can be mounted in downflow, upflow, or side-flow positions, when they are installed according to the manufacturer's certified instructions. The HVAC Veteran (MORE)

Preheated blast air blown into the furnace reacts with the carbon in the form of coke to produce carbon monoxide and heat. The carbon monoxide then reacts with the iron oxide to produce molten iron and carbon dioxide. Hot carbon dioxide, unreacted carbon monoxide, and nitrogen from the air pass up t…hrough the furnace as fresh feed material travels down into the reaction zone. As the material travels downward, the counter-current gases both preheat the feed charge, decompose the limestone to calcium oxide and carbon dioxide, and begin to reduce the iron oxides in the solid state.

Sintering has two reasons: 1- You want to put in the blast furnace an homogeneous mix of fluxand mineral. 2- You want something with a lot of pores. So the reductor gas canmake contact with a lot of surface.
A Barometric Damper when used properly will help regulate the draft. This in return will allow for better combustion, longer burns and less fuel to be used. One problem with a Barometric Damper is the chimney will run a little cooler due to the introduction of room air. If the unit isn't being burne…d correctly, this can cause creosote to accumulate in the chimney. The Barometric Damper and flue must be checked periodically and cleaned when necessary. (MORE)
As the heat is coming from the burning oil, the furnace itself technically uses none. Assuming you have a central heating system that forces hot air through ducts to vents throughout the house (as opposed to old-fashioned steam radiators) it only requires a few watts to run the blower fan. Radiato…rs typically use no electricity. The oil burner needs electricity for the combustion fan motor to operate and this fan motor is coupled to the oil pump which feeds the fuel to the electric ignitors that light it. You mention this is a furnace so there is also the indoor fan motor that blows the hot air into the living space. If this were a hot water boiler there would be an electrically power water pump instead of the indoor fan the furnace has. (MORE)
An updraft tower is the place in a Cumulus cloud in which an updraft goes up at a constant rate, until the dissipation process occurs or either the entire cloud, or just a part of a cloud itself.
A balanced draft has both ID and FD fans. ID Fan works by pulling the gases through the furnace hence creating the required draft. Where as FD fan pushes the gases into the furnace. Hence in a balanced draft frunace, the ID fan can said to be removing the combustion gases.

Every hot water heater I've seen has a regulating knob somewhere. Look for it,possibly under a cover.
You Can't Change the Speed. Another Answer: That depends on the motor that is used in the furnace and whether it is belt drive or direct drive. Many direct drive fan motors have multiple winding connections, allowing you to change the fan speed by changing the connection to the windings. To do… that, refer to the diagram on the cover plate on the side of the motor. If you are AT ALL confused by the diagram or if you haven't done something like that before, contact a heating professional or electrical contractor. Many belt drive fan motors have pulleys with multiple "steps", allowing you to change the speed that way. (MORE)

Often it is propane, gasoline, or other natural gases. Still, anything that can like can be fuel, with the gas just fueling the fire; there are numerous fire types.
Once you've played your furnace in the desired location, tap it to open it up. In the interface, the bottom slot is your fuel slot. You can throw most wooden blocks or items in this slot to use as fuel for smelting and cooking. Any items or blocks you have in your inventory that will go in the fuel …slot appear in a box on the left. The same goes for the ingredient slot, which is the top slot. In this slot you'll place in what you want to cook or smelt. The last slot on the right is the slot in which a block or item appears from cooking or smelting the ingredient in the ingredient slot. For example, if you smelted iron ore, your iron ingot will appear in this slot. Now onto the two symbols on the furnace interface. The fire in between the fuel and ingredient slot represents the time left to use the fuel in the fuel slot. If you have a stackable item you're using for fuel and you've placed multiple numbers of that fuel in the furnace, then once of that item burns out, it will be replaced by another in the stack and the fire will reset. If you have no more items to throw in the fuel slot, the fire will simply become empty until more fuel is placed. The arrow symbol in the middle of the ingredient and result slots is your progress bar, which shows how much time the ingredient currently has to cook or smelt. The closer it is to the result slot, the closer it is to becoming finished. (MORE)

Yes and no. An unmodified oil burner will burn far more kerosene than fuel oil for which it is designed. If you replace the nozzle with a smaller nozzle and adjust the air, using an orsatz [orsat gas analyzer], a device for determining the combustion efficiency of the flame, you will be able to use… kerosene. * interesting fact: Kerosene is also known as #1 fuel oil, or JP5 jet fuel. Mixing kerosene with #2 fuel oil, (home heating oil) in small amounts, should have no appreciable effect on the furnace efficiency. (MORE)
