When we have a wood stove or fireplace with your door and glass ceramic, one of the most troublesome things that we can find we are that the glass is made often very black, do not let us see the fire, and the next day it costs much clean.
The causes of a crystal of a wood stove gets too black or getting dirty much may be due to many causes, among them they would be:
It is common knowledge that wood is one of the factors influencing the combustion and heat produced in the combustion chamber of the stove. If we use wood of poor quality, which is wet, or treated with chemicals firewood, we find that much smoke is produced in the combustion chamber, and the same when hitting the glass remains adhered to, due to particles resin having.
So it is always advisable in order to minimize fouling glass of our wood stove, use good quality wood, which is more than two years covered drying, which is best achieved by flame and less smoke.
Another cause that influence the crystal black put is the lack of shot wood stove, if we have facilities tubes stoves with small circulation, we will not have enough depression, and “absorption” or ” ascension ” smoke from the combustion chamber will be very slow, making them stay longer than necessary in the combustion chamber, and therefore, more contact with the glass, causing it to put more black.
Even, we can find that due to lack of fire, smoke out the door and the ash drawer dirtying all, unless we have a right shot.
So a right shot with a depression around 10 to 12 Pascal’s, will make our glass stove smearing less.
Close the door of the newly hot stove:
It is the custom of many users of wood stoves, firewood load the combustion chamber, put a paper tablet or below, set on fire and close the door.
Closing the door, what we do is force the shot, being just as air intake, the primary air inlet, which makes stoke much flame and is widely produced in the combustion chamber, and spot more glass.
We notice when we go to recharge the stove and opened the door slowly, we see low flame, and burns more slowly, and Aqua will air enters through the door.
The best way to encoder the wood stove, is once put the pill, half leave open the door while being heated iron, pipes and creating adequate depression for the stove to work properly and not smoke accumulating more in the combustion chamber, which will make us more stain glass.
Glass door laces and shabby
Most wood stoves, have some tapes or cords around the glass and around the door for a good fit and closing thereof. With use, over time, and sometimes not prevent the cord from getting wet when we clean the glass, we can find that has lost a piece of tape so the Puerto stove does not close perfectly, this causes have variations in the air intake and more stain glass.
So, every so often, especially when we see that the cords are damaged, we must change the ribbon crystal.
The stove does not have the clean glass system.
As we increase the quality of the stove we buy, it has more elements that justify this price, and make use and maintenance, better and more enjoyable.
In the case of glass door, many manufacturers mid range – high have designed systems that make the glass shooting much less, even that clean as higher the temperature of the fire inside the stove.
If the stove has not clean glass system, it will stain more than a stove that yes it has. Or a stove whose combustion has been designed with high added value, and the same burning brilliantly. The haves are called ” Nordic stoves “, which are stoves with a high value of technologies in the design of it, as well as the quality of the materials used, that when you see burning a wood burner range more floor along with a high-end, then you see the difference and justification for the price difference.
These would be the most common causes, why the glass of a wood stove, gets very black.
