Understanding what the Catalytic Combustor does inside the appliance.

Normally, smoke will burn, at temperatures around 1000 F. or higher. Burning a stove this hot would require continuous intense fire and would require a much higher wood consumption.

The solution is a stove equipped with a  FIRECAT catalytic combustor. Here's why...

Wood smoke gases coming in contact with the catalyst, causes chemical changes to take place. This will then allow the smoke to ignite at temperatures around 500 F. or (260 C.)

This temperature is easily achieved in the firebox of a wood burning stove.
