Power Consumption?

Power consumption?

PostBy: rockbassman On: Sun Jan 24, 2010 8:10 pm

Does anyone know a rough power consumption (Watts or Amps and Volts) for the Coal Trol unit as well as if all the motors are running? I'm trying to itemize all of my electrical usage by appliance... thanks.

If you do a search thru this section, The coaltrol doesn't draw much power,

YOu would need to get a killowatt meter and check your stove power draw either thru the coaltrol or each motor independently to really know how much the stove is using.

I replaced my original combustion motor on my Keystoker 90 with a Dayton ball bearing to quiet noise. Surprisingly it also consumes half the energy of the Fasco. My readings are now as follows.
Combustion Fan 15 Watts
Combustion Fan with Feed Motor running 37 Watts
Convection fan on High with Combustion Fan 109 Watts
With all motors running 130 Watts.
My Keystoker draws less than 1 Killowatt per day.

At full convection fan speed the Pocono (2- 265 cfm blowers)consumes 270 watts by Kilowatt meter, add 20 watts for the feed motor that runs more infrequently. If you have a Pioneer, expect around 200 watt draw w/o feed motor at full 265 cfm.
