  • Page 9: Brick And Insulation Installation (ht-2000)

    BRICK AND INSULATION INSTALLATION (HT-2000) The stove is normally supplied with secondary air tubes in position. To install the baffle bricks and white ceramic insulation, it’s necessary to remove the two front secondary air tubes. First place only one baffle brick and one white ceramic insulation. Use the same method to put the other baffle brick and insulation.

  • Page 10: Air Tubes Installation (ht-2000)

    AIR TUBES INSTALLATION (HT-2000): The secondary air tubes are painted different colours . The back tube is yellow, the middle on is red and the front is unpainted. Before installing, make sure the locating holes in the tubes (holes near one end of the tube) are on the left side. Insert one tube in the right side air channel and slide it to the right as much as possible.

    DOOR ADJUSTMENT In order for your stove to operate properly, the door should be adjusted periodically to provide an air tight fit. To adjust:  Remove the lock pin (spring pin) by pulling and turning it using pliers ("wise grip") ...

  • Page 12: The Benefits Of Installing A Blower

    THE BENEFITS OF INSTALLING A BLOWER A blower can be installed at the back of your DROLET stove. This option is necessary if you wish to redistribute into a room the heat trapped at the back of your stove. By forcing hot air toward the front, the blower enables you to extend the radiation power of your stove.

  • Page 21: Chimney

    CHIMNEY Your wood stove may be hooked up with a factory built or masonry chimney. If you are using a factory built chimney, it must comply with UL 103 or ULC S629 standards; therefore it must be a Type HT (2100°F). It is extremely important that it be installed according to the manufacturer's specifications.

  • Page 22: Chimney Connector (stove Pipe)

    CHIMNEY CONNECTOR (STOVE PIPE) Your chimney connector (commonly called stove pipe) and chimney must have the same diameter as the stove’s exhaust outlet. The stove pipe must be made of aluminized or cold roll steel with a minimum 24-gauge thickness (0.021" or 0.53 mm). It is strictly forbidden to use galvanized steel.

  • Page 23

    FIGURE 2.3 (B) Minimum Slope  The assembly should be as short and direct as possible between the stove and chimney (See figure 2.4 (A)). The use of two 45 degree elbows (See figure 2.4 (C)) is often preferable to a single 90 degree elbow (See figure 2.4 (B)) because less turbulence is created in the exhaust flow and they result in less horizontal run.

  • Page 24: Draft

    DRAFT Your E.P.A Drolet stove’s performance will be optimised if it is installed with a chimney (flue) system that provides an adequate draft. The draft is the force that moves air from the appliance up through the chimney and is predominantly affected by the height and diameter of the chimney, as well as the stack temperatures of the stove.

  • Page 29: Woodstove Utilization

    WOODSTOVE UTILIZATION Your heating unit was designed to burn wood only; no other materials should be burnt. Wastes and other flammable materials should not be burnt in your wood stove. Any type of wood may be used in your stove, but specific varieties have better energy yields than others.

  • Page 30: Testing Your Wood, The First Fires, Ignition

    Smaller pieces of wood will dry faster. All logs exceeding 6" in diameter should be split. The wood should not be stored directly on the ground. Air should circulate through the cord. A 24" to 48" air space should be left between each row of logs, which should be placed in the sunniest location possible.

  • Page 33: Ash Disposal

    gases is somewhere between 275 F and 500 F. Below these temperatures, the build-up of creosote is promoted. Above 500 degrees, heat is wasted since a too large quantity is lost into the atmosphere. TO PREVENT CREOSOTE BUILD UP  Always burn dry wood.

  • Page 34: Maintenance, Glass, Gasketing, Paint

    Do not abuse the glass door by striking or slamming shut. Do not use the stove if the glass is broken.  If the glass on your stove breaks, replace only with glazing supplied from the Drolet dealer.
