Is Coal-Trol still in business?

Hi Guys

Happy New Year....

Is Coal-Trol still in business..I have not heard anything about them lately and the site does not look updated. Reading has information about Pel-Trol in their stove manuals but I cannot find any information on them either..

Just curious....

Thanks

Yeah, we're still kicking. :)

Reading decided a couple/few years ago to stop selling Coal-trol on their stoves, but we're still factory equipment on Leisure Line and Hitzer stoves and Keystoker still ships with our control as an option. Our controls work on Reading, Alaska, Harman and other brand automatic stokers, too.

Best way to get in touch with us is either by email (coaltrol@automationcorrect.com) or phone (315-299-3589). We check the forums from time to time, but for anything time sensitive phone is best, followed by email.

The website is woefully outdated. I'll remedy that during this month.

Yes. Their automatic stoker model. Not their hand-fired and gravity fed models, of course.

Sure they will. As long as you design, build, and install all the mechanical upgrades and electronic interface components needed to make it happen. :)

Glad to hear you're still around...I am running Coal-Trol on my Reading Junita...It works great I think Reading made a mistake for no using them.

Amen on the website update!!

Thanks for responding.
