Catalytic stoves and fireplaces are designed to be efficient heating appliances, but an old or faulty combustor can certainly affect their performance. Restore prime operating condition with a replacement combustor! Enjoy up to 50% more efficiency and twice the heat from one piece of wood. We recommend replacing your fireplace or wood stove combustor every 12,000 hours.
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?
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.
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.
