This is a follow on to my Harman Magnum Stoker Restoration post...Harman Magnum Stoker Restoration...
I finally got around to installing the stove and my install is a bit unique so I thought I'd share the details...
The combustion and convection blowers are mounted in the basement to eliminate the noise from the living space and the convection blower pulls the return air from the opposite side of the house setting up a circulation of warm air. Additionally, both the combustion and convection blowers operate 24x7 via discrete fan speed controls.
a 2x12 with 2x3" diameter holes + 8 mounting holes (4 for each blower) drilled and 2 3" duct pipe sections caulked into place.
mounted on the chimney foundation below. note the holes on the floor for ductwork and electrical
blowers mounted with ductwork through the floor. electrical in place
View from top. A kill switch for the stove stoker feeder operates off the outlet. 2 separate fan speed controls go to a split outlet in the basement. Only the feeder motor operates off the Harman controls. Both blowers run 24x7. I hope to replace the flex duct with rigid eventually.
To install the duct to the stove blower adapter, cut a piece of sheet metal the size of the blower adapters and drill a 3" hole through them. insert the pipe into the hole and epoxy in place with JB weld which also provides an air tight seal.
Intake side of the convection blower. 4" starting collar to a 4x7 increaser to a 7" semi rigid duct to 2x5' sections of 7" round duct.
Other side of the ductwork. 7" round to oval adapter going through the floor.
hole cut out in between the walls for the round to oval duct and another hole for the register on the wall (I had to move the outlet).
Opposite side of the wall.
With a 10x10x1 return filter register installed.
Expanding form insulation around the duct and register before the drywall is replaced.
With the filter installed... I'm using my coal stove to eliminate the dust in the house... How great is that?
