Question about Garden
It may be similar to the Dutch West wood burning stove. The air from two front inlet flap opennings at the left and right of the glass door direct air upward and then inward at the top of the flame. This is intended to swirl the flame back so that it actually revolves in there before coming back and up the hole up into the top mounted reaction chamber where the platinum particles in the fiberous ring cause a catalyst type reaction of unburned gas. The main damper has to be closed to do this. You have to watch the flame to make it happen with the adjustment and the fire has to be up to about 350 degrees F. Because you are now making the flame roll around in there you will find the whole unit starts to snap with more heat output and if you use a magnetic KEL stovepipe thermometer it will shoot up to 420 degrees in 15 seconds so be ready to reduce the air to control your fire. Anything above 450 F. is dangerous, uses too much fuel and might send flames up to the creosote in the chimney. A clean chimney is fairly safe but the stainless steel ones with mineral asbestos lining by SELKIRK CANADA are the best as they will allow a fair number of seconds of CREOSOTE BURN which is kind of dangerous and can spit flame balls on to your roof, burning up cedar shake roof material before you can get up there with a garden hose and extinguisher.
