ClearStak Expands Pollution Control Line for Outdoor Wood Boilers

January 25, 2012

Users of outdoor wood furnaces and wood boilers now have additional pollution control options from ClearStak, LLC. The company has expanded its line of Pollution Control Devices (PCDs) and Intelligent Bio-fuel Controllers (IBCs) to retrofit a wider variety of outdoor wood boilers and four different sizes of pipe – up to 12” in diameter.

“Our new systems can be used for gasification and non-gasification furnaces and some utilize oxygen sensor technology to further reduce wood smoke by monitoring the burning process,” says Jeff Hallowell, ClearStak president. “Not only do these new systems reduce wood smoke and particulate emissions from wood furnaces, they can increase efficiency by over 30%, reducing the overall amount of wood needed to burn.”

ClearStak’s units have been used on many types of indoor and outdoor furnaces including traditional, gasification, EPA non-qualified and EPA qualified. There are hundreds of our products in use in states such as Connecticut, Vermont, Indiana, Alaska, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Mississippi, Missouri, Arkansas, Massachusetts and Minnesota, and even Canada. They are being used on furnaces from the most popular wood boiler manufacturers such as Central Boiler.

“Our new pollution control devices and bio-fuel controllers will allow us to better serve a wider biomass market and reduce particulate and carbon monoxide emissions in more varied types of furnaces,” says Hallowell.

ClearStak, LLC is a privately held company located in Willington, Connecticut. ClearStak’s vision is zero visible emissions and reduced volatile organic compounds from the combustion of solid biofuels. The ClearStak mission is to design, build and integrate intelligent pollution control devices and controllers to reduce emissions from the combustion of solid biofuel.
