FLUE GAS THERMOMETER
How HOT Is Your Stove running? measure the FLUE TEMPERATUREColor> with this Device
Use this Flue Gas Themometer probe to measure your flue gases in any size pipe, 3, 4, 6, 8 inches. Works ideally for double-walled pipe in that the rod slides into a magnet sheath, and the hole drill sizes are slightly different for each for the rod probe and the magnet sheath. The magnet hole is 1/4 inch, the thermometer rod probe is 3/16 inch. The magnet hole sheath is a press-fit and the sheath fits inside the magnet and is pressed to the pipe ... both rest snuggly up against the pipe ... little to any exhaust leakage. Manage your stove operation, ... monitor the temperature. Check out our other Corn Stove items listed in our Ebay Store.

- LESS THAN 250 Degrees Fahr: Incomplete combustion and it could cause clinkers, incomplete combustion, soot, smoke, and hazardous creosote. Note that a wood-log burning combustor can clog inside a catalytic wood-log stove. If you'll lower than 250 Degrees Fahr. ... you've got a problem.
- BETWEEN 250-400 Degrees Fahr: this is marginally OK for corn, wood-pellet, and biomass stoves as they burn cooler than wood-log stoves. However corn, wood-pellet, and biomass stoves should be at leat 350 to 400 Degrees Fahr in order to burn efficiently. Corn burning can clinker-form below 350 Degrees Fahr. , especially if it is wet. Not so good for wood-log stoves as they should be at least 400 Degrees Fahr or there will be an exhaust pollution problem as described above.
- AT LEAST 350-400 Degrees Fahr OR HIGHER: Corn, Wood-pellets, and Biomass stoves should be at least 350-400 Degrees Fahr or higher for them to run efficiently. Chimneys normally only draft well at 400 -700 Degrees fahr.
- BETWEEN 400-900 Degrees Fahr: This is efficient wood log, corn, wood-pellet, and biomass burning range without any excessive smoke and creosote. Chimneys normally only draft well at 400-700 Degrees Fahr. Close to 900 Degree Fahr temperatures should explore the use of a secondary heat exchanger ... or cut back the fuel rate/air.
- OVER 900 Degrees Fahr: High temperature may be reached during fire-up, but burning this hot wastes fuel and wastes heat. Why would you want 900 Degree Fahr Heat going out the pipe?! ... significant HEAT LOSS! If you are this hot, and you can't cut back your heat, then you may wish to install a secondary heat exchanger of some sort or design.
