The SmartBurn pollution reduction device is a steel tubular device containing a solid mixture of natural ingredients. Once heated, the ingredients melt and sit in the ‘bowl’ of the steel casing and slowly release a small amount of vapourised ingredients from the open ends.
This vapour allows more of the gases that are being released from the wood’s heated surface to be burnt ‘within’ the firebox rather than going up the chimney flue as ‘wasted fuel’.
This results in up to a 54%* reduction in wood smoke emissions and a 17%* more effective burn of wood. A small amount of these ingredients will act on any existing residues (creosote) on the internal walls in the chimney flue, and these will be slowly removed.
Once the fire-box is cold, the ingredient mixture becomes a solid again.
One of the many benefits of SmartBurn is its simplicity. Follow the placement guidelines for your style of heater before lighting.
Please note - If you are unable to establish an effective fire due to inadequate ‘draw’, please seek the services of a professional chimney sweep for a thorough inspection of your flue before using SmartBurn.
There are several variables when it comes to wood heating and how long before you should expect to see results. Variables include the amount of air available, type of wood being used, moisture content of wood, arrangement of SmartBurn in your firebox, amount of ash on the baffle plate, existing creosote build-up etc. You should however start seeing promising results after 2-4 weeks.
When used correctly SmartBurn is designed to last up to 3 months before it needs to be replaced. Temperature regulates the speed at which the SmartBurn ingredients vapourise.
