Estate HeatRola stove

PostBy: cantman On: Sun Oct 05, 2008 1:26 pm

I have a friend who wants to me remove a "Estate HeatRola Intensi Fire Air Duct" coal stove from his parents house. I went over to see the stove and it
looks ok, I'm no expert. The stove has a small piece missing(cracked off) around the sealing surface of the exhaust flue. (the 90 degree
fitting before the straight fitting which attaches to the stove pipe) A welder should be able to recreate this lip easily. Also, I assume
the flanges on the stoves' combustion chamber will have to be resealed (is it a "glass" packing?) Can this sealing material be purchased?
I looked at the grates and they didn't seem warped (will warped grates look really warped or just slightly?) They looked straight to me and
the shaker handle worked and allowed the grates to "open up"

I want to have a hand fired stove for the house and this seemed like a good idea if it isn't cracked or leaky.

Any info would be appreciated!

The heatrola has furnace cement between the firepot and upper portion of the stove body, or at least mine did. If the grates don't have any big gaps and the shaker mechanism works, they should be alright. As for the flue pipe adaptor, make sure it is repaired properly, last thing you want is that breaking in the middle of the night and venting CO into the house.

Does this model have the tube that passes through the firebox with bolted flanges at each side?

It has a tube that passes through the top of the firebox(left side to right side) . Is this meant to give the stove
more surface area, thus more heating ability?

The tube is part of the "circulating design" of that stove. The air is pulled up through those tubes and passes up through the donut on the top, it is very effective. The attached picture has a diagram that shows how it works, it is on the left side of the ad halfway down the page.
