    Catalytic incinerators can be used to reduce emissions from a variety of stationary sources. Solvent evaporation processes associated with surface coating and printing operations are a major source of VOC emissions, and catalytic incineration is widely used by many industries in this category. Catalytic incinerators. Book Description. In a clear and concise manner, this book explains how to apply concepts in chemical reaction engineering and transport phenomena to the design of catalytic combustion systems. Although there are many textbooks on the subject of chemical reaction engineering, catalytic combustion is mentioned either only briefly or not at all.

    PCI's patented Microlith ® technology consists of a series of discrete, ultra short channel length, metal monoliths with low pressure drop. This combined with our advanced catalytic coating technology enables the simultaneous design of a high cell density, low thermal mass device along and smaller, lighter and higher efficiency catalytic reactors. A catalytic combustor is a device designed to be built into or added to a wood stove. Its purpose is to reduce the temperature required to consume the particulate in the smoke so that a large portion of the flue gases will be consumed prior to entering the chimney.

    The Catalyst by MF Fire is one of the most efficient first wood burning stoves on the market. Our modern wood stoves provide a safe and clean fire for you and your family. Learn about all of the home heating benefits you can take advantage of with a Catalyst wood stove!   IMHO; Catalytic converters on a wood-burning device is just another something to blow your money on, another part to break and I don't see that it makes any real difference. More junk on a simple, efficient, heating device. Our stove came with one. I found out when I disassembled the stove guts to clean it for the summer.

Get this from a library. Study of the effectiveness of a catalytic combustion device on a wood burning appliance. [John M Allen; William Piispanen; Marcus Cooke; Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory (Research Triangle Park, N.C.)].

The report gives results of operating a wood stove, incorporating a catalytic combustor, while burning air-dried oak at low burning rates. Gas composition was measured continuously both at the entrance of the catalyst (after the gases had left the burning wood) and at the exit of the stove (after the gases had traversed the catalyst).

These continuous monitors. Catalytic combustion has been developed as a method of promoting efficient combustion over a wide range of air-to-fuel ratios with a minimum pollutant formation at low temperatures as compared to conventional flame combustion. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of catalytic combustion including commercial and Author: Sophie A.

Cottilard. If you'd rather burn the smoke from your stove than clean it from your chimney, consider adding a wood stove catalytic converter. A number of companies offer units you can install yourself.

The goal was to develop a catalytic converter package that could be added to any of the majority of existing stove types so that efficient, clean burning could be made available to the wood.

30 Bortz, Paul 31 Busha, William; Morris, Stephen 32 Flagler, Gordon 33 Martin, Werner 34 Miller, D.P. 35. Complete combustion or burning the smoke from a wood fueled fire ordinarily requires temperatures too high to be practical in a wood stove.

However, as smoke passes through the catalytic combustor, it comes in contact with a noble metal coating which is adhered to the honeycomb shaped ceramic base and reduces the temperature at which the smoke. Catalytic combustion is a chemical process which uses a catalyst to speed desired oxidation reactions of a fuel and so reduce the formation of undesired products, especially pollutant nitrogen oxide gases (NO x) far below what can be achieved without process was discovered in the s by Catalytic Combustion LLC.

In a clear and concise manner, this book explains how to apply concepts in chemical reaction engineering and transport phenomena to the design of catalytic combustion systems.

Although there are many textbooks on the subject of chemical reaction engineering, catalytic combustion is mentioned either only briefly or not at all.

The HearthCAT™ from Clear Skies is the only catalytic system that is effective in the demanding operating environment of a wood burning fireplace.

offers the latest EPA Approved Catalytic Technology for wood burning stoves. We sell directly from the manufacturer. Our combustors already meet EPA guidelines going into effect in to improve air quality by reducing harmful emissions from your wood burning stove.

SAVES YOU MONEY Use less wood to generate the same heat—save up to 1/3 of the cost of a cord of wood—and burn up to 8 hours longer than a non-catalytic stove. Dutchwest non-catalytic wood burning stoves come in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large. These stoves are considered some of the cleanest burning when it comes to wood stoves and have received high marks from the EPA.

The stove’s large glass doors offer an unobstructed viewing area. These stoves offer the Everburn, state-of-the-art. A wood-burning stove (or wood burner or log burner in the UK) is a heating appliance capable of burning wood fuel and wood-derived biomass fuel, such as sawdust bricks.

Generally the appliance consists of a solid metal (usually cast iron or steel) closed firebox, often lined by fire brick, and one or more air controls (which can be manually or automatically operated.

The mixture passes through a catalytic combustor which lowers the smoke’s burning temperature from 1, ºF to ºF and causes it to ignite. This catalytic combustion turns the smoke and other pollutants into usable heat. Cleaner burning wood stoves can reduce your fuel bill, in addition to protecting your health.

A wood stove has been the traditional way to heat a home over the years and it often is the centerpiece of turning a house into a home. Even though we’re nestled deeply into the 21 st century, this type of home heating still makes a lot of sense. Using wood to heat a home has many benefits, from an added beauty and ambiance in the home to independence from.

Just like the catalytic converter in your car, the catalytic combustor in a wood stove traps the smoke and other byproducts of combustion, and has a chemical coating (generally platinum and/or palladium) which interacts with the smoke and ignites it at around degrees, rather than the degrees normally required.

A recent study that compared emissions from different kinds of wood-burning appliances found that the “advanced” wood stoves emitted amounts of non-methane hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and PAHs that were similar to or higher than those from traditional wood stoves. If it's good & dry wood. No special burning techniques needed.

I burn spruce, which some pieces have allot of pitch, no problems. Should have no effect on the life of the combustor Creosote is not caused by pine, most often the wood is wet. (folks who only burn oak can get creosote) Dry wood is key for any wood stove & more so with the cat stoves.

The Model 74 is a non-catalytic wood burning stove designed to meet the most stringent emissions standards without the use of a catalytic combustor.

Model 74 has a BTU rating of 40, and can heat up to square feet. The 74 delivers heavy duty heat performance and is available as a masonry and pre-fab fireplace insert or freestanding unit. A catalyst will start burning the smoke coming from the fire when it has reached a temperature of between and F.

At this point, the catalyst is said to "light-off". In some models, the catalyst will begin to glow when the temperature rises above F.

What You Should DO: DO burn only dry, well-seasoned wood, not wet or freshly cut wood.Combustors can destroy up to 90% of the creosote associated with wood combustion and remove 90% or more of the harmful pollutants found in wood smoke.

What a combustor can not do is tolerate ongoing or constant misuse or abuse. Catalytic wood stove manufacturers should always encourage stove purchasers to burn only well seasoned cord wood.Residential Wood Combustion — PM Emissions Table of Contents 1.
