|Every stove manufacturer has developed their own combustion system. For example, the Quadra-Fire wood combustion system incorporates secondary burn tubes, which are more efficient, burn cleaner and require less maintenance than stoves with catalytic converters. More than 50% of the heat from your wood stove comes from burning the smoke, and stoves with secondary burn tubes burn that smoke inside the firebox, instead of in your chimney. These heat tubes will never need to be replaced. |
Quadra-Fire also incorporates additional smoke-burning within the primary stove chamber, with 4 reburns overall, hence the name "Quadra-Fire". In contrast, with catalytic converter stoves, you will need to replace the converter several times throughout the life of your stove - a costly and sometimes time-consuming maintenance requirement.
