Domestic Heating: Woodburner & Pellet Stoves
Whether wood is burnt in log or pellet form, it is one of the most environmentally friendly fuels that can be used as a means of heating. It is sustainable renewable energy and virtually carbon neutral.
By enclosing the fire in a chamber (stove) and connecting it to a chimney / flue, it generates a draught, pulling fresh air through the burning fuel in a controlled fashion. This means that the temperature of combustion rises to a point (around 600°C) where efficient combustion is achieved. Part of the air control system relies on the door and ashpan seals.
In recent times, a new generation of innovative, super-efficient stove designs have begun to appear around the world. Many new methods are adopted to achieve this efficiency, such as airwash, which is achieved by drawing air across the stove’s doors to create a barrier between the burning fuel and the glass. By effectively preheating this air, the combustion temperature is increased further and it helps to keep the door glass clean.
Some modern stoves even incorporate catalytic converters which are designed to burn waste fumes, resulting in modern wood burning stoves that are extremely efficient and much better for the environment.
Pyroglass Limited work closely with original equipment designers and manufacturers to develop and supply appropriate and highly cost effective sealing solutions. This includes high temperature door rope seals of various constructions and compressions, window glass seals, ashpan seals, flue spigot seals and specially formulated high temperature adhesives.
For the after-sales market Pyroglass offer a rope pack assembly service. These packs can include rope seals, adhesive, end sealing tapes, instructions etc. and are tailored to suit each customer.
