Catalytic combustors are primarily responsible for the heat output of your wood stove or fireplace. They convert smoke into heat, and harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide. This process allows your wood burning stove to remain efficient and use less wood to keep the temperature in your home warm and comfortable. Over time, a worn out combustor will begin to show signs of needing to be replaced. These signals include decreased heat from your wood stove, black smoke coming from your chimney, and increased creosote built up. While we recommend replacing the combustor every 12,000 hours of use, others may need to be changed sooner depending on the quality of wood burned, frequency of use, and type of stove that you have.
Platinum and palladium are the catalysts in our combustors. These metals are applied to the honeycomb of the combustor (either ceramic or steel) and cause the gases from a fire to burn at lower temperatures, instead of escaping through the pipe or flue.
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?
Canned Combustors: original equipment catalytic combustors that are "canned" (wrapped with a welded stainless steel strip) should be replaced by new combustors that are also canned. Observe that canned combustors have a gasket material sandwiched between the can and the ceramic honeycomb.
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.
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.
