Barrel-Style Stove Heats 10,000 Sq Ft
High fuel oil and electricity prices have brought the woodburning stove back into the home, but wood burners haven't replaced the traditional heating system for shops and larger buildings.
Now, that is changing, too, as the Pribbs Wood Burner comes on the market for heating buildings with up to 10,000 sq. ft. "It provides more heat than any square box made," says the manufacturer.
The Pribbs Wood Burner stands 64 in. high and has 12 cu. ft. fuel capacity. It will handle logs up to 4 ft. long and 18 in. in dia.
Here, according to a company spokesman, is how the stove works: "The fire box is round instead of square. The upper barrel acts as a heat exchanger that takes out more heat before the air goes up the chimney. Finally, the fire box is equipped with a blower which forces warm air out the bottom onto the floor of the building."
The double-walled barrels create 12 ft. of air ducts to extract a maximum amount of heat from the hot air. The fire box is made of 3/16-in. plate steel.
The large firebox will hold round logs big enough to hold heat for 10 hours without firing. Besides burning standard fire wood, the Pribbs stove will handle railroad ties, scrap wood, and cardboard. Some wood industries are heating their plants entirely with waste products of their manufacturing.
Price of the Pribbs wood burner is $1,650, plus transportation.
