producing outdoor furnaces using Type 409 Stainless

Type 409 Stainless Steel ("titanium

chose to begin using Type 409 Stainless Steel due to
its improved oxidation and corrosion resistance
versus carbon steel. HEATMORô found that outdoor
furnaces manufactured using Type 409 Stainless Steel
would last approximately three times longer than
furnaces manufactured using carbon steel. It is this
reason we are able to offer the most comprehensive
warranty on the market.
According to 82 percent of our customers, stainless
steel construction proved to be the number one
reason why they purchased a HEATMORô outdoor
Forced Air Combustion
The HEATMORô has an over/under
Forced Air Draft system that blows air above and below the
fire. Forced draft furnaces have better heat recovery
ability when compared to naturally aspirated furnaces.
Forcing air onto the fire in the right places will generate
a hot fire faster than a natural draft system. Forced draft
will also burn larger wood more efficiently.
The forced draft feature was the
reason 52 percent of our customers purchased a HEATMORô
Removable Ash Auger
The ash auger is a
tool used to remove ash from the rear of the HEATMOR™
furnace. This makes for a more convenient and easy ash
removal. There is no need to let the fire burn out to remove
the ashes nor any need to shovel the ashes out the
front door. The ash auger is a removable tool, inserted only
at the time of ash removal. Once completed, the ash auger is
stored outside the furnace.
Almost 50 percent of customers chose the ash auger
system as one of the reasons they chose HEATMOR™.*
Water Cooled Firedoor
water thermo-siphon through the HEATMOR™ firebox door
virtually eliminates door warpage, important in keeping an
airtight system. Using a water-cooled door improves
the efficiency of the furnace because it
increases the heat
transfer area used to pull
heat from the fire.
The HEATMORô is
insulated with fiberglass bat insulation, the same as used
in insulating homes. The sides of the HEATMORô are
insulated with R-19 and the top with R-38. The insulation is
non-flammable, easily accessible, long lasting and assists
in the creation of a well-built efficient furnace.
|Rapid Recovery Water Temperature
The HEATMORô water
capacity and forced draft fan along with the sand and
firebrick bottom make for quick water temperature recovery
during normal operation. With a quick water temperature
recovery, there is no need for large water capacity.
Our new Limited

your unit. The key to researching warranties is reading the
fine print. (Complete warranty
|Double Door Construction
The Double Door
feature allows preheated air to be drawn into the over/under
Forced Air Draft system, increasing the efficiency of the
burn. The lockable outer door on the HEATMOR™ provides an
important safety feature, keeping children and unwanted
guests out of the furnace.
The bladder allows
the HEATMOR™ to be a semi-closed system, which will reduce
evaporation and pressure buildup in the system. Because the
bladder system holds the expanding water when heated, it
reduces the need to add water. When you add water to the
system, you also add contaminants, increasing the chance of
rust and corrosion. The bladder is meant to increase the
life of your furnace.
Standards Association (CSA) is a first class test certifying
body that symbolizes the safety of products. Most insurance
agencies require the product be CSA listed to be insured.
The HEATMOR™ is CSA approved in the USA and Canada, which
shows the quality and credibility of the product. See the
HEATMOR™ certified product listing at www.csa-international.org.
The HEATMORô is
considered an open-bottom furnace. The bottom of the furnace
is the most corrosive part of wood burning furnaces due to
the collection of acidic ashes. In order to combat the
corrosion issues in the bottom of the furnace, HEATMORô utilizes sand
surrounded by firebrick. The two-inch thick firebrick allows
the fire to reach higher combustion temperatures in order to
facilitate a more complete burn. Additionally, the mass of
firebrick and sand allows for a heatsink which releases heat
during the shutdown period of the burn cycle (when your
furnace's water temperature is satisfied). The grates and
ashpan are nestled in the sand to allow for easy ash removal
without disturbing the burn.
|Open Bottom System
The lower nine inches
of the firebox is lined with two-inch thick firebrick.
During operation, the
firebrick will achieve temperatures in excess of 800ļF.
During the shutdown cycle, these hot bricks
will evaporate condensation.
The firebrick is placed
in the most corrosive area of the firebox, below the ash
line. Therefore, it is not necessary to scrape the corners
and look for corrosion.
The firebrick will retain heat
during shutdown. This, along with the forced draft
will re-ignite the fire more quickly. The area lined with
firebrick will achieve
a higher temperature during the burn
cycle to allow for a more complete burn.
