Pellet stoves, the combustion chamber

FIREX 600 makes warmth even more enjoyable All the pellet stoves have a combustion chamber made from FIREX 600, a vermiculite based material developed by Ecoteck after long and extensive research. FIREX 600 captures the heat generated by the flames, stores it then gradually releases it, improving combustion quality and keeping the firebox free from combustion residues via a process of pyrolysis. FIREX 600 combustion chamber linings give pellet stoves the same heating effect normally associated with natural wood burners.combustion linings from FIREX 600
The main characteristics of FIREX 600 are:

• excellent resistance to high temperatures and the prolonged action of fire
• excellent resistance to thermal shock
• exceptionally easy maintenance and replacement
• good mechanical strength
• excellent insulating capacity for improved combustion
• no ceramic fibre content
• no emission of fumes or smells, making it clean to use, non-irritant and odourless
• pyrolytic action: turns white on reaching operating temperature
• improved stove efficiency
• extremely light weight
• does not burn

FIREX 600 has been examined by the ‘National Institute of Occupational Health, Denmark (AMI)’, and is certified free from asbestos and quartz fibres.

Damage is only visible on the side exposed to the flame, with no sign of overheating on the other side. The block is still whole and perfectly functional.
