Enerzone Eurostar install thread!!

    This will be an ongoing thread as the Hearth is completed, new vent is going in, and new stove is installed.

    As some know, the Quad is finally making its way out and the new Enerzone is coming in (delivered tomorrow)!!

    I am moving the Hearth a room over (one room closer to Bedrooms :)), raising it (6"-12"?), and also installing Selkirk DT on the new stove (Thanks Don).

    Pics of vent, stove, etc will be posted tomorrow. But with everything I have going on, I wanted to get this started, so I only need to post pics.

    As with the others (30-NC, Fahrenheit 50F), it will be an entire install thread and review.

    Really looking forward to the bottom feed tech of the Enerzone. Plus all the features (easy to clean, remove parts, and the adjustability) :)

    We'll be waiting for the pics of it burning (after its installed in the house, test burns in the garage don't count, but we want those pics too).

    Bonus points will be awarded if it is 85 degrees outside or above on the in house test fire day.

    It is finally here!! And Wow!! Does this thing heat!!!

    It sounds pretty loud on the video, but in reality, it is pretty quiet. The pellets never even thought about spilling over the edge.

    There is an adjustment to help the burn on the auger (+ or - 5%) and on both the Combustion blower (before pot) and Exhaust blower (where most pellet stove exhausts are). The 2 for combustion and exhaust are adjustable by + or - 10% and this allows you to fine tune how hard the stove blows/sucks. Which is a pretty nice feature. Along with being able to adjust the auger feed and also the pilot time (pretty infinite) to however long you would like to it to Pilot before shutting down.

    In these pics, you can see the intake and exhaust. Behind the intake is the small (almost like a computer cooling fan) combustion blower that forces air into pot. Then the exhaust sucks it out from there. When you open the door, the fire stays almost exactly the same as when door is closed. As it has positive and negative pressure.

    It is a bottom feed like Harman... :) But has a dual auger system. They sit perpendicular to one another. Rather than Parallel like Englander. Also, everything has 2 clips and it pulls right out. Intake (combustion blower) blower, convection blower, and burn pot lift out after releasing 2 clips. The combustion blower. And augers are held in place by bolts, but there are 2 access ports on the side that make this unit one of the easiest to clean and maintain on the market today (IMO). These ports only take a 1/4 turn with a screwdriver and they pop right off for easy access and cleaning.

    I ran it for a little over 2 hours before shutting down and no ash even came close to flowing over the edge. No burning pellets came close and it threw heat that put my Quad to shame (and I love my Quad), I only had this to 50%. Taking baby steps to burn it in.

    I also bought all new venting. Still need to paint the rest of the venting black (elbow came black). But after seeing what DT is all about, I almost want to update my Fahrenheit with the 4/6 Selkirk DT. Very good product that serves 2 purposes while leaving only 1 hole in your home.

    Until I start on the Hearth and install the stove and venting? This will be about all I have to post until then.

    The are several good videos made by SBI on YouTube that animate this stove (also the Osburn 5000 which is the same unit).

    It shows the touch screen control panel and the troubleshooting and ease of cleaning.

    Early review after less than a day of ownership. I am impressed with build quality and overall efficiency.

    More to come later :)

    Too many fine tuning adjustments. Like power driver's seats. If I don't have all of those adjustments I just pick a slot and am comfortable. With the power ones I am constantly trying to find a better adjustment. ;lol

    Looks awesome! I love the touch screen and the serviceability of the stove parts! Oh- And the bottom feed! ;) Flame and flame bed look almost identical to Harmans.

    You are going to like that Selkirk DT setup. I thought you had mentioned that you were getting DT-M (multifuel) I believe the "decorative cone cap" is only rated for pellet. I could be wrong though. I have been wrong once or twice....;) If you look at the mulitfuel catalog it is not there. But it is in the pellet catalog. Probably not a huge deal anyway but might be worth a look.

    If only the cap is non multi fuel I wouldn't sweat it. Is the eurozone 100% multi fuel?

    Hello

    The DT pipe is 304 stainless steel that is anti-corrosion good for corn or pellets. The termination cap is 316 stainless steel. Not a big deal. The fuel type for the Eurostar is wood pellets.

    See technical specs of the Eurostar
    http://enerzone-intl.com/product.aspx?CategoId=5&Id=578&Page=spec

    BTW
    Enerzone does make a multi-fuel called the Bio 45 MF that is very similar to the Osburn Hybrid 45MF. It is a top feed with a pot stirrer in the burn pot. A very different machine to the Eurostar.

    Not true multi fuel.

    Its rated to burn High ash pellets. Such as switchgrass, bark, etc. Much higher ash content than most stoves. The ability to increase the combustion and exhaust blowers 10% helps to eject any ash. I am only scratching the surface in terms of adjustment.

    This is the start of a loooong friendship. I'm glad Summer is here. But can't wait for this Fall!! :)

    Don, is this the direct temp pellet product (model VP) or the direct temp multi fuel product (model dt-m)? You say the pipe is 304 stainless. I believe the multi fuel pipe is AL29-4c.

    That is correct.
    The DT-M is double the price. Big bucks if it is not being utilized.
