City Glenwood #14

PostBy: Michel On: Fri Sep 24, 2010 7:48 am

Hi guys,

I purchased a City Glenwood #14 because it looked like a baseburner - however when I took the baseburner flue off - it doesn't go into the stove. It just recirculates by going down the tube then at the bottom - comes back up - then out the flue. What kind of stove do they consider this? Has anyone had any experience with this type of stove?

Thanks,

Mike

this is where the stovepipe goes into the base - there are no openings into the base of the stove - it just holds the flue pipe.

this is the pipe that makes it look like a baseburner.

I have seen pictures of a City Glenwood # 10. I don't know much about the," City," series of Glenwoods. It looks like an econo model of a baseburner with only a partial circulating circuit. It would be more efficient than a standard updraft stove, but; it doesn't have the complete return circuit it seems. It still is a very attractive stove. I would like to learn more about these stoves and the most knowledgeable person is either Emery at, "Antique Stove Hospital," or Doug at Barnstable Stove Shop. Antique Stove Hospital deals extensively with all types of Glenwoods and if you call him, I'm sure he can tell you all about it and how it works.
When you find out. Report back please. I would like to lean more about my favorite stove brand as well.

The City Glenwoods were marketed as small to medium sized stoves to be used in apartements. They are not base burners, but; are oak stoves with an indirect back pipe. These were low priced stoves that were affordable to those who couldn't afford an expensive base burner. These are like all Glenwoods from the Turn Of The Century, a good product.

I've been doing my homework, since I posted here last. :)

That design is very similar to my #215 Hub Heater by the Smith and Anthony stove company.

The little section of pipe makes a huge difference in how it operates and how efficient it is.

These City Glenwoods are great stoves for those who have smaller houses and also for those who might want a coal stove for the first time.

We have one of these at our camp and it should work in either direction. Ours has a damper at the upper outlet of the stove. You open it up to start the fire and when it it gets hot you shut it and the pull comes from the bottom outlet. Ours I believe says "Gasifier" on it somewhere. The only problem ours has is the doors are not air tight, so even though it burns more completely, it still goes through wood fairly fast. Note: Ours too looks like a dead end at the bottom with the pipe off but it is connected. I believe this is done to prevent ash from blocking the lower outlet.

That is unless someone blocked it off completely. Oh yeah, open the upper outlet damper when loading as she's a smoker.

That's a divided back pipe on the back that lengthenes the flue gasses when the damper is closed. When open it's in direct draft for starting and refueling and actually with wood should always be in the open or direct draft mode. This is do to creosote build up. The closed and lengthened flue gass circuit is for anthracite coal use. The "gasifier" is the damper in the loading door and is used again, for athracite coal when reloading to burn off volitile gasses and can be used for wood over fire air.

As Steve said, a City Glenwood, is not a wood heater. It is a coal stove designed for Anthracite coal as it's fuel. The back pipe is an efficiency feature to increase the thermal efficiency of the stove. The bottom damper is a check damper. This is used to lower the amount of draft to the bottom of the fire by diverting air away to the exhaust rather than pass through the fire bed. The stove is not tight because it most likely needs a rebuilding.
Get some coal to burn in it and see how much better it performs.
