Looking for a bit more information about our products? Here is a collection of all the questions we usually get asked by our clients for your convenience. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

  • Smoke coming from the top door?
    If you notice that the top door is leaking smoke, then we recommend that you let the appliance go out then clean it thoroughly. This includes the heat exchanger tubes, if this hasn't been done recently (3 months). DO NOT attempt to he door hinges. - If you are still struggling please contact us.
  • My blower won't gasify and it is producing an excessive amount of smoke?
    There a few reasons why this is happening; 1 - Wet wood is being used, we recommend a moisture between 15 - 20%. Excessive moisture in the combustion process prevents the blower from gasifying. 2 - Another reason may be a blockage caused by excessive ash building up somewhere between the loading chamber and the flue outlet. We would recommend letting the blower go out and then completing a full clean. 3 - The final and less common cause is user related and stems from too much attention being given to the blower whilst running. You should only need to go to the blower every couple of hours. Entering the blower too often will exacerbate the problems further interfering with the combustion process.
  • Through the summer season should I service my blower?
    Yes, we would recommend that you fully clean and service the blower yearly to ensure correct operation. Please note that the blower will need new fire bricks and nozzles at certain times due to these being wearable items. It is important that the first 2 services are carried out by a qualified technician and recorded in your warranty card provided to ensure your warranty remains valid.
  • How often should I clean my blower?
    We recommend that you let the blower go out once a week so that you're able to do a weekly clean. A visual inspection of ash build up should be carried to prevent issues like them mentioned out. Every 3 months we recommend you visually inspect the heat exchange tubes and flue, cleaning when necessary.
  • Where can I get replacement parts for my blower?
    You can get all replacement parts directly from us and we will always try and dispatch any orders within a week where stock is available.
  • What is the drying time for green wood?
    If you are using the hot air blower to heat a kiln, drying times can vary from 5-10 days depending on kiln performance. We highly recommend drying part seasoned wood as this would significantly reduce drying times.
  • What is the drying time for part season wood?
    Part seasoned wood will take anywhere from 1 - 5 days depending on the moisture content of the wood when entering the kiln.
  • Operating temperature range?
    50 - 120°c
  • Can the hot air blower be used for space heating?
    Yes. As the hot air blower pulls fresh air in which is completely separate from the combustion process, the hot air produced is safe to breathe in and can be used in warehouses or offices. Currently a couple of our customers are doing just that.
  • Can it run off a generator?
    Yes, however precautions should be taken to ensure that the generator is suitably sized and has a large enough fuel tank to run easily overnight.
  • What happens in a power cut situation?
    As the blower uses oxygen starvation to control the combustion process, absence of power would mean the blower will simply extinguish itself. Do NOT open the door, opening the door will cause the fire to become lively/ reignite and potentially overheat the blower.
  • Does it need 3 phase electricity?
    The hot air blowers (25 - 130kW) are all able to be run from a single phase, 13 amp supply for example a 3 pin plug socket or fused spur. We recommend speaking with your local electrician to ensure you have ample supply.
  • How much does it weigh?
    The hot air blowers weigh from to 1.5t
  • What are the lead times?
    Currently lead times are ranging from 7-10 weeks for a new installation slot. These will vary.
  • Does it need to be inside?
    No, the blower can be installed externally but steps should be taken to protect it from direct weather. However we highly recommend fully enclosing the blower on a level surface with the correct ventilation installed as this will improve its efficiency.
  • What fuel should I be using?
    It can burn all types of wood including mixed loads of sawdust and off cuts so long as they are dry (between 15 - 20%) and free from any accelerants like creosote, glue, or solvent based products. Note: Burning wood in different formats other than those specified above can have a detrimental impact on the amount of smoke produced when the blower is running and could have an impact on the life span of the blower itself.
  • How efficient is the blower?
    92% Efficient with an energy rating of A+ (2017)
  • Can you help me if I'm not in the UK?
