Hittin’ the note!

We’ve been spending a lot of time the last few weeks testing our Franklin inspired steel hybrid in the lab. We hope to begin beta-testing this next new model in the early fall.  So far the results are good.

The Ideal Steel, which goes into production in June, had the lowest high burn emissions on record, and  we expect our next steel hybrid to achieve record low high burn emissions, too! Our GearHead hybrid woodstove line aims for the lowest emission records at every stage of the burn. It's our mission to create this new breed of woodstove, and it makes us see that we are hitting the high notes pretty well!

Our goal is to flatten the emissions curve, so that we are at or under 1 gm/hr across all burn rates up to 55,000 BTU/hr.  Efficiency is creeping up slowly with the lower emissions.  Maybe we'll get another new record there, too.

Below is a 45 second video of one of our high burn tests.
