Extensive Refractory

The extensive refractory lining of the burn and reaction chambers absorb the high temperatures produced and promote a clean, hot, dry burn. A high efficiency heat exchanger is required to capture this heat for optimum efficiency.


Most efficient design of heat exchanger

The Portage & Main EGR has not just one, but two high efficiency flue tube heat exchangers. This makes our brand one of the most efficient, most modern gasification units on the market today. Time tested and proven – this type of flue tube heat exchanger was the most efficient design 150 years ago and  is still the most efficient design today.

Optimal heat extraction saves the work and cost involved in burning wood.
