I always have problems due to airflow changes when there is a lot of chaf present, so probably with this solution airflow stays constant, and makes process easier. Roaster now looks way more proffessional than before :) Also it is very good to hear that now you have more time to focus on roasts, and beans cool quicker. This will definitely be ob my list of upgrades!

BTW what kind of Gas burner do you have?

Airflow "seems" to be relatively constant during the entire roasting process.

It seems where I bought my burner is out of stock, but I found another store and linked it above. You'll need the fittings and a pressure gage to get you to your propane source. I use an adjustable regulator and a PG to control the fuel supply. Searching this forum will yield quite a bit of detailed information about what others are using for their burners/fittings/regulators/control valves ....

Yes, non constant airflow is the main issue, with "huky style" ventilation, I am very glad that the cyclone solves that!

Unfortunately link shows item not available.

It is no longer there. I do not know if they stopped selling it separately or some website maintenance issue. What I suggest is using the site "contact us". iirc I had to create a site account to send a message, but that is how I initiated the contact. Please update what you find out. My contact was "Hong".

EDIT: CACHED WEBPAGE
Tine, I would suggest contacting Seinn/Kaldi from the site and ask status. They were extremely quick responding when you factor in the time difference. HTH, -LN
