Stack and Surface Temp?

Stack and Surface temp?

PostBy: Bob1776 On: Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:09 am

What is a normal temperature for the surface of a coal stove and the chimney pipe? I am curious if anyone has measured theirs or knows what it should be.

My hand fired runs 225 to 300 degrees on the pipe before the baro, surface mount thermometer, highly inaccurate. The other day I left the ash door open too long after reloading, hit 650! :blowup: I added more coal and cut the air way down, temps returned to the safe zone.

My Keystoker 90 runs around 125* on the vent pipe with a magnetic thermometer about 4 feet from the stove.

Hand fed may be a bit different in temps.

My Hyfire runs 300-450 on the sides and 150-240 Deg. Stack temp INSIDE the pipe After the Baro just before going into the chimney.
My Keystoker Divect Vent (No Baro) runs 120-190 Deg. about 8 feet from the stove Inside the pipe just before existing thru the wall.

I have digital Temp. Probes that measure the flue temps inside the pipe.
