Took some flue gas temperatures this morning before and after the baro damper. I've got 492 degrees at the breech and 299 after the baro. That's 193 degree difference and translates to more efficient operation. I run my draft at .03 and the baro keeps it constant.

Aside from flue gas temps as sign of efficiency, a (literally) solid measure is how much coal is being consumed.

I went from 40lbs a day to under 20lbs after installing a baro and mano.
Set at .03" wc, with under-fire damper set at 1/2 turn open, it maintains a 400° pot.

3° out this morning, I went out to the shop to find 63° on the thermometer 10 feet across the room from my old Crane 88.

Two best accessories ever besides a good long poker and a solid shovel.

I'm sure you can find Field Control baro dampers from many sources; fwiw, I got mine at Lowes.

If you don't already have the tee as well. Any of our dealers usually have them in stock. They are a factory black finish right from field controls and a black tee included with it.
