That's an interesting look. What's the firebox size?
The firebox is 20" wide x 12" front to back x 27" deep,(top to bottom)
Sedore Stoves are now in full production in the US. The first customer is using his stove and is pleased. Two Md: 2000's are in service in New York and Ohio. Seven more will go out this week.
I am curious about these Sedore stoves
1) can they really burn wood chips w/o creosote build up?
2) if this top loading / bottom burning design is so great, why isn't everybody doing it?
Sedore claims that these things can burn almost any fuel for 15 or more hours with a steady heat and no creosote. what's the catch?
Interesting stove. Has it gone through the EPA standards and have a UL label? What is the GPH and efficiency? BTW that's one hot avatar.
The stove has not been tested for EPA Certification nor do I have any figures on the GPH. The stove is however ULC Approved. If someone knows of a inexpensive to have any of this testing done or any alternatives please let me know. The last figures I saw on developing a stove and having EPA certified was $100 TO $200 grand. No Small stove company can afford this expense. The stoves are however being tested in Canada and when the results are in I'll share them.
I would like to have read all of that, but it turned out to be difficult.
i am in india.

No I will not provide any prints for the stove and neither would any other stove company.
How much do the Sedore Stoves go for?
If you want to be a serious solid fuel manufacturer, get the stove UL listed and EPA certified. The full battery of tests for certification and UL safety is less than $10,000. Whoever told you $100 to $200 grand is from another planet.
Bruce, sounds like you got yourself something good. Sounds like your a hard worker and so you deserve it. Good luck with your stove company and in the future I hope to give one of those stoves a try. Jim
holy crap! that looks like it holds some wood
sounds like an interesting stove. i would like to see more pictures and a price list please. :cheese:

CO in the exhaust is not the SOURCE of inefficiency, but it may be one measure. However- it could belch black smoke too, and those particulates are not CO but are clearly also a sign of inefficiency.
At certain points in firing a kiln it's desirable to have an inefficient, "reducing atmosphere" burn. Sometimes there is black smoke associated, but the CO gas in the combustion products is what is really doing a lot of the reduction. You are right that it's pretty cheap to do the measurement of efficiency, but getting the govt to slap a "certified" sticker on something often costs.
