About 125,000 years ago humans realised that the stones surrounding their fires stayed warm, long after the fire had gone out... The most efficient way to burn wood involves a process of rapid, clean combustion, coupled with an effective way to trap and store the resulting heat energy. The stored energy, must be transferred to heat space as required, and with minimal losses. Our ambition has been to produce a clean-burning stove with an efficient heat storage/transfer process and ultra-low emissions. The PYROLYIS TM1 has been designed along principles first developed during the 18th Century, when engineers realised that energy in the smoke and gases, produced by burning wood, needed to be held in the stove for as long as possible. These engineers used baffle-plates, clay and stone to achieve that principle: weâ€™ve used augers to slow down heat release and crushed recycled glass to store the energy from that heat. Simply burning wood in a steel box and sending most of the heat up the chimney is no longer acceptable, a guiding principle which most manufacturers of woodburning stoves today seem to ignore! The PYROLIS TM1 sets new standards in wood-burning efficiencies and sits comfortably among the most efficient wood-burning stoves ever built.
THE ADVANTAGES AND EFFICIENCIES OF THERMAL MASS. According to the relevant EC test standard, this type of stove must retain heat in the thermal mass for at least 4 hours after the fuel has been completely burned. Added to this, the surface temperature of the stove must not fall below 75% of the temperature recorded at the time the stove is turned off. The PYROLIS TM1 operates at efficiencies above 80%, which means that it is losing only about 20% of the energy provided by the fuel out of the chimney. The total energy value of the fuel (3kg of dry wood pellets) has been calculated at 14.4kWh, which means that the stove stores about 11.52kWh of energy in its thermal mass. This heat energy is transmitted slowly into the room over 10 hours, at roughly 1.1kWh.

STOVE DIMENSIONS: Height 1.8metres x Diameter 400cm. Weight 300kg.
DATA AND PERFORMANCE: This data was produced during the early stages of stove design. Final testing to EC standards require readings to be collected every 60 seconds of the burn process to determine overall efficiency and emissions. At 60-second interval readings the efficiency of the stove is recorded at these averages: 02 (Oxygen in the combustion process) – 12.3% CO2 (Carbon dioxide in the combustion process) – 8.2% CO (Carbon monoxide release ppm) - 336 Flue Temp – 237C
Overall Stove Efficiency – 80.65% • •
Combustion benefits from the addition of a small blower with an output of 3.6watts/hr. Carbon monoxide emissions are 90% below the EC permitted levels for this type of woodstove.
