Understanding your stove

Stoves have up to three types of air supplies to aid the combustion process for different types of fuels. These are primary, secondary and tertiary air. Primary air is brought into the fire chamber underneath the fuel bed  normally used when burning coal or similar products. Secondary air is either drawn direct into the fire chamber or enters via ducting channels where the air has been preheated. This pre heated air is normally re-directed down the glass face to assist in keeping soot deposits from building up on the glass . On some newer stoves a third tertiary air system is used, these are permanent airways introduced into the  rear top section of the combustion chamber.  The roof of the stove is at a far higher temperature s than that of the fuel bed, so when air is introduced at this point  any unburnt fuel deposits and gases still in the smoke are re-burnt ,thus making the stove much more clean burning and efficient. However stoves of this type can suffer from less control and may also be more difficult to keep in overnight due to the permanent airflow through the appliance.

How to use a briquette

Wood or wood based products like our Premier Briquettes only require secondary air to burn efficiently.

On a wood-burner stove it may  have only one control for secondary air, you will only need this slightly open to allow the briquette to burn slowly, the slower the better especially as they can burn up to three times hotter than a log.

Stoves with tertiary air , you may find that the briquettes will burn just using the tertiary air available all other controls may be closed. If you need any further air only use the secondary air control, open very slowly to allow the briquette to burn slowly and efficiently.

If you have a traditional stove with both primary and secondary air controls close the primary air and turn down the secondary flow to allow the briquettes to burn slowly and efficiently.

Our briquettes can be used with coal or logs you may have to vary your mix to suit your appliance or condition and type of  fuel that you may be using. This is mainly due to the moisture content  in the product that you are burning.

Briquettes can be used on all open fires, cheminees, wood and solid fuel appliances.

Storage

Premier Briquettes are made from kiln dried wood so have a very low moisture content. This means that  they are able to absorb moisture easily from the atmosphere or surrounding surfaces. They need to be stored in a dry place and keep part used bags sealed or covered.

No chimney or flue no problem

If you do not have a chimney or flue you may still install an appliance using specialist flue systems suitable for the application and subject to local building control requirements and installed and certificated by a qualified person. Click on link to be advised of a local installer to you.
