Developed by GraceFire LLC
The StoveCAT ECD is a product of GraceFire LLC using the proprietary Clear Skies Unlimited catalyst coated reticulated ceramic foam as the critical design component. GraceFire was founded a year ago in preparation for the recent EPA update to the New Source Protection Standards for residential wood heaters. See Grace Fire Video below.
The goal was to develop a simple but elegant retrofit device for older, non-EPS certified wood burning stoves. The unique design of the Grace Fire wood stove retrofit emission control device is directly related to the development effort and lessons learned from extensive work on three previous products. We have been diligently working for over a decade to bring the Clear Skies catalyst coated reticulated ceramic foam into the wood burning appliance market. We have successfully demonstrated dramatic particulate reduction, typically 80% to 95%, in three wood burning devices: stoves, open hearth fireplaces, and outdoor wood boilers. Two Clear Skies products using their proprietary catalyst coated reticulated ceramic foam are now on the market: the CS-200 StoveCAT aftermarket stove combustor and the HearthCAT™ retrofit for open hearth wood burning fireplaces. A third product, the PureSky™ retrofit for outdoor wood boilers is in final development.
