Would a reversed tuyere system work?

I was just lying in bed thinking of ways to update my forge and boom it hit me.Instead of having an airblast directed upwards with an ash pit at the bottom of the blast upwards,would it not make more sense to have the blower aiming down at the ground so that ash is sucked out of the forge. The vaccum created in turn would move air from above the forge into it and throwing ashes out the bottom.Would this not work?

The air going up blows heat up. Blow down and you will cause the forge to get far too hot where it shouldn't be, and you don't get the hot spot where you want it for use.
