DS Circulator 1500

This is how this stove gets it’s air intake, and how you control the amount of air the stove with let into the firebox. By doing so, you are also controlling the temperature of the stove. Say it’s the easier or late in the winter season (burning season), and you don’t need the stove temperature to burn at middle or high but a low, this is how you control it. It’s the easies and safer then the standard screw out and in knob or the slide to left to right, to bring air into the stove. If you set the DS Regulator and walk away, the stove will only get as high in temperature as you set it. No running away stove temperatures that could cause damage to stove or your home.

This stove uses DS Hot Air Circulator Heat Tubes, by circulating the air. The heat from the fuel and exhaust, heats these circulator tubes. The hot air rises out of the top of the tubes. When this happens, if creates a draw of air. The hot air leaving the top of the tubes has to be replaced. Cooler air that sits on the floor is now drawn up into the bottom of the tubes, making the air circulate. This is a continues process moving the air and heating the cooler air. 

These stoves also have a cast iron door on top of the stove, for loading coal with a optional coal hopper, giving you another 60 lbs of coal into the stove. This will let the stove burn longer between loads. It’s self feeding. This Feature is on some Coal Only Burning Stoves.
