What Is The Difference Between Canned & Uncanned Catalytic Combustors?
Our ceramic catalytic combustors are used for wood burning applications. But what's all this business about canned and uncanned combustors? Let's see if we can clear up the difference between the two:
This is a ceramic catalytic combustor that is wrapped with a welded stainless steel strip. In addition, a gasket material has been snugly fit between the combustor and the "can." Certain applications that utilize this style of combustor may or may not require an additional gasket outside of the can for a secure fit.
Simply put, this is a ceramic catalytic combustor that is not wrapped with a welded stainless steel strip.
While there is no real rhyme or reason as to why some manufacturers use canned vs. uncanned combustors, it is important to replace your catalytic combustor with the appropriate version. (For example, if your application originally housed a canned combustor, you should therefore replace it with a canned model, and vice versa.)
