Platinum and/or palladium are the catalytic substances in our combustors. These precious metals are applied to the honeycomb of the combustor (either ceramic or steel).
Your wood stove or fireplace will need a bypass in order to use a catalytic combustor.
When the exhaust temperature isn't high enough for a combustor to "light-off" the wood-smoke exhaust must have an alternate route to go, until the combustor is hot enough to perform its function.
Original equipment catalytic combustors that are "canned" (the ceramic is wrapped with a stainless steel strip) should be replaced by new combustors that are also canned. Observe that canned combustors have gasket material sandwiched between the can and the ceramic honeycomb.
Woodstoves with canned combustors may, or may not, require additional gasket outside the can for a good fit inside the stove. This depends on the particular stove design. In some cases the combustor assembly consists of two or more pieces. Gasket should be used between the individual pieces for a good fit.
Federal law requires any EPA-certified catalytic wood stoves be operated with combustors to reduce air pollution over the entire life of the stove.
How Much Gasket Do I Need?
To determine which gasket will work best, calculate the outer dimension of your combustor. Six-inch-round combustors require 19 linear inches of gasket. Seven-inch-round combustors require 22 linear inches of gasket. Oblong combustors require gasket twice the length, plus twice the width, PLUS two inches (a half-inch for each corner). Order CatGuard Gasket
Combustors are guaranteed to contain sufficient catalytic precious metals (platinum and/or palladium) formulated and properly applied to conform to requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for certified wood-burning products, and when installed in USA are warranted for structural integrity for five years or 12,000 hours burn-time, whichever comes first, when correctly installed and maintained. Failure due to incorrect use, including with fuels other than dry natural wood, is excluded.

I called and spoke to a young lady that walked me through the order placement process. My glass came in quickly fit perfect very well pleased. I will definitely recommend you to my friends.
Replacing the glass was a breeze
This is my first time doing business with FastReplacementglass.com, and I am impressed with their customer care, they actually care!!!!. I have talked to Kimberly in person twice and communicated via email more than a couple of times in regards to getting a replacement glass for my fire-place glass bi-fold doors. Actually the glass procurement was the fast and easy part, and it came fast with accurate dimensions finished with a pencil edge that matched the other glass panels perfectly. The challenge after receiving the replacement glass was to find the proper gasket to replace the old used gaskets. Kimberly is very knowledgeable and has solutions for unique problem jobs like mine turned out to be.
I am REALLY pleased! The picture of it does not do it justice. That is the prettiest piece of wood, and a contractor doing some work in my home said that the grain in the edge looks just like Damascus steel. I do wish the pic could give you a better indication of what I will enjoy for the rest of my life!
Thanks for the corner fireplace screen. I have installed it but haven't actually used it yet, but it looks great and fit perfect.
We received the fireplace doors in good shape the other day, they look great, beautifully made.
