(1) a catalytic combustor
The Ideal Steel Hybrid wood stove is the first woodstove that can accommodate owner designed artwork. The sides, andirons, and the cooktop burners can incorporate your design visions. All you have to do is send us a drawing, photograph or image of what you would like to see on your stove and let our artists do the rest. If you are not feeling creative, you can choose a design from our GEARED 2U Design Book. And if you are really adventuresome, you can create a “Trophy Stove” like the Moose Stove and the “Poisson de Manon” pictured at the right. In any event, you get to choose between the 4 basic design options below, and then add any of our standard colors. To view the Ideal Steel Standard Colors, click here.
The IDEAL STEEL Hybrid offers high efficiency heat, a great fire-viewing experience, clean burning and an opportunity to express your own design ideas if you choose to do so.
|Your Design Options:|
Secondary combustion occurs across the top of the firebox. The fireback slopes so that you can easily see the secondary flames. Secondary air is preheated by passing across the back of the stove before entering the fireback.
Any exiting smoke and particulates not burned by secondary combustion must pass through a catalytic combustor, where they are ignited at temperatures as low as 400 degrees. The catalytic combustor is made of stainless steel foil, tested and approved for continuous operation at 2,100 degrees F. The thickness of the foil is approximately 50 microns (the thickness of a human hair), which is why it heats up and “lights off” so quickly.
Both the secondary combustion and the catalytic combustor produce heat. Without a hybrid system, some of this heat would be lost up the chimney.
The catalytic combustor is located right under the cooktop, so you get the full benefit of its heat. A radiator also transmits catalytic heat to the sides of the stove. Complete combustion, achievable only through a hybrid combustion system, and good heat exchange are what makes for record 82% efficiency. If the catalyst pointed toward the stack, as opposed to the cooktop, more heat would be lost and efficiency would drop.
The catalytic bypass damper interlocks with the loading door. You cannot open the loading door without opening the bypass damper first. This helps to ensure smoke free loading.
