A Combustor Gasket is included at NO EXTRA CHARGE!

Combustors may, or may not, require a gasket to ensure a good fit inside the stove. This depends on the particular stove design.  


What is a Catalyst? 

A catalyst is a substance that lowers the activation energy required for a chemical reaction to take place, without being comsumed by the reaction. Heat is required to activate the reaction. 

Platinum and palladium are the catalytic substances in Condar combustors. These precious metals are applied to the honeycomb of the combustor using a patented washcoat technology.

 

Catalytic Reaction in Combustors

When your woodstove reaches 260 - 370 degrees Celsius at the beginning of each burn cycle, it is said to have achieved "light-off". (Use a woodstove thermometer to monitor temperature). Light-off temperature means there is sufficient heat for the catalytic reaction to take place.

After closing the damper (bypass), wood smoke passes through the platinum/palladium-coated honeycomb of the combustor, producing the catalytic reaction. Ash, particulates, and harmful gas exhausts are converted into water vapor and carbon dioxide, which safely exit your chimney without polluting the air.

 

Get More Heat from Your Stove

When your catalytic combustor causes the chemical reaction to occur, significant heat is released as a result. Perhaps the greatest benefit of maintaining your combustor is capturing heat that would otherwise be lost up your chimney. The total practical heat output of your woodstove is increased by as much as 50% with a new combustor!
