mason coal burner wrote:using MPD this year not last year . when reloading this year i started just loading coal to top of bricks all at once after shaking . last year i would load coal in layers letting each one catch after shaking . these are the only things i've done different . any ideas why i'm getting sulfur smell ?
I too am not a fan of MPD's in pipe when burning coal. Barometric damper I can see. But not a manual pipe damper, in a modern air tight coal stove.Berlin wrote:if you're getting sulfur smell in the house consider that an indicator of a problem, not THE problem. the loading/sulfur content of the coal isn't the issue, the flue gasses entering the home are, be thankful you can smell it. lose the MPD
