According to US EPA, approximately 10 million wood stoves are currently in use in the United States, and 65 percent of them are older, inefficient, conventional stoves. Just 20 old, non-EPA certified wood stoves can emit more than 1 ton of fine particle pollution. In many areas of the country, wood smoke is the single largest source of PM 2.5.
The StoveCAT ECD is designed to solve this environmental crisis. It is designed to work on virtually any wood heating device with a flue system of 8" or less. There are hundreds of different wood stove brands and models. A simple stove collar is used to transition from the exhaust of the wood heater to the bottom of the emission control device.
This device can be installed in about an hour. Special adapters may be required for certain appliances. The StoveCAT ECD has also been successfully evaluated on indoor wood furnaces.
