The Stovax Stockton 8 wood burning and multi-fuel stove offers you greater choice and more optional features than any other model. There is also a space saving Stockton Slimline stove version which is 3” (75mm) shallower. This is a two door model, which is available with a handy cast iron tool that locates over the keystone catch and then rotates to open or close the doors.
Stovax Airwash System
Airwash is a specific design feature that uses a specially placed vent or vents to draw in cool air from the room; the air is then heated and ducted to ‘wash’ over the inside of the glass. This feature helps to keep the glass clean for longer, allowing you to enjoy the glow and flames to the full.
Airwash air is the best way of controlling a stove burning wood and can be used a small amount in a stove burning solid mineral fuels to keep the glass clean.
Stovax Cleanburn System
Most Stovax wood burning stoves incorporate triple air systems to provide a cleaner burn, greater thermal efficiency and control of the flame picture as follows:
- Airwash air is drawn down over the inside of the window to keep the glass clean and clear. It is also used as primary combustion air when burning wood.
- Primary air for use with solid fuel, also used to start wood fires but not normally used once a wood fire is burning.
- Cleanburn secondary air is pre-heated as it passes through a heat exchanger chamber within the firebox. It is then drawn into the smokestream, where it combusts unburnt hydrocarbons to provide a cleaner burn and greater thermal efficiency.
Introducing pre-heated, secondary air into the firebox at just the right point promotes efficient combustion of any unburnt hydrocarbons that may be in the smoke. This ‘cleanburn’ process can greatly increase the combustion efficiency of your wood burning stove and dramatically reduce the amount of unburnt particles going up the chimney. This can in turn reduce your servicing costs and save you money in fuel. It also gives you an improved flame visual.
