High Temperature Fireplace Thermometers

High Temperature Fireplace ThermometersPlace the Medallion High Temperature Thermometer on the top, front or side surface of your wood stove insert or on your wood stove single wall black pipe. This thermometer allows you to monitor the temperature of your wood stove to ensure safe operation, efficiency and to protect your wood stove and wood stove insert from inefficient over-firing.

Over-firing a metal stove consumes wood without generating additional room heat, because excess energy is lost up the stove pipe. Higher temperatures will often be reached on initial firing, but not advised for continuing operation. While burning too cool results in incomplete combustion, causing formation of hazardous soot and creosote in your chimney. Creosote will clog catalytic combusters in catalytic wood stoves. Ensure your wood stove or wood stove insert is operating in the safest possible way with the Medallion High Temperature Fireplace Thermometers.

The High Temperature Fireplace Thermometers attach magnetically and are easy to move with their collapsable, stay-cool handle.

Place the thermometer on the top of your wood stove fireplace insert or on the single wall black pipe coming out of your wood stove. Prevent over firing by keeping your wood fire in the most efficient heating range.

General Guideline for Most Wood Stove Surfaces

Above 650 degrees Fahrenheit: wasting energy, may damage woodstove, safety hazard. Over-firing a metal stove consumes wood without generating additional room heat, because excess energy is lost up the stovepipe. Higher temperatures will often be reached on initial firing, but not advised for continuing operation. 400 Degrees Fahrenheit to 650 Degrees Fahrenheit: complete combustion, safest operation. Below 400 Degrees Fahrenheit: Smokey, dirty fire, safety hazard. Burning too cool results in incomplete combustion, causing formation of hazardous soot and creosote in chimney. May clog catalytic combustors.

For Use On Stove Pipe

Attaches magnetically to flue pipe. Best placement is 12 inches above the top of stove. Magnet holds to steel at temperatures up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Exposure to high temperatures may cause thermometer to fall and burn floor.

Consult stove manufacturer's manual for best operation.

General Guidelines For Most Single-Wall Stove Pipe

Above 475 Degrees Fahrenheit: Wasting energy may damage woodstove, safety hazard. 230 Degrees Fahrenheit to 475 Degrees Fahrenheit: complete combustion, safest operation. Below 230 Degrees Fahrenheit: Smokey, dirty fire, safety hazard.
