If your Dutch West Early or Squire 5500 heating appliance has been losing its efficiency and spark, then you have come to the right place! Our 6 x 1 1/2 inch canned catalytic combustor CC-033 is just what you need. Catalytic stoves and fireplaces utilize a ceramic-honeycomb catalytic combustor to burn smoke and gases, converting them into heat, water vapor, and harmless carbon dioxide. If you do not replace this device at least every 12,000 hours of use, then you will be at a loss for efficiency. Our canned combustor offers 25 cells per inch that are all lined with platinum and palladium. Every nook and cranny is coated with these metals to ensure a consistent reaction. The reaction of wood smoke with these metals results in much less creosote build up and a greater heat output.
PLEASE NOTE: Your wood stove or fireplace will need a bypass damper in order to use a catalytic combustor. (When the exhaust temperature isn't high enough for a combustor to "light-off" the wood-smoke, the exhaust must have an alternate route to go until the combustor is hot enough to perform its function.)
Will I Need A Gasket For My Catalytic Combustor?
Combustors that have no stainless steel "can" must always be installed with a new expanding gasket. Uncanned combustors are manufactured with a CatGard (an expanding gasket that is wrappped around the combustor) at no extra charge. The factory ships the correct gasket already in place, with masking tape to hold the gasket in the proper position during installation.
Depending on the particular stove design, heating applications with canned combustors may, or may not, require an additional gasket outside the can for a secure fit inside the stove. In some cases the combustor assembly consists of two or more pieces. In this event a gasket should be used between the individual pieces for a good fit.
|Cells Per Inch:||25|
PER THE EPA:
Federal law requires any EPA-certified catalytic wood stoves be operated with combustors to reduce air pollution over the entire life of the stove.
Combustors are guaranteed to contain sufficient catalytic precious metals (platinum and/or palladium) formulated and properly applied to conform to requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for certified wood-burning products, and when installed in USA are warranted for structural integrity for five years or 12,000 hours burn-time, whichever comes first, when correctly installed and maintained. Failure due to incorrect use, including with fuels other than dry natural wood, is excluded.
REMEDIES UNDER THIS WARRANTY Manufacturer will replace a defective combustor, free of charge, for the first 90 days following the date of original purchase. After the first 90 days, replacement will be at the following discount:
Estimated Lead Time:
