How does it work?
The Vulcan stove fan does not require any electricity whatsoever! No batteries. No mains electricity. The Vulcan is self powered just from the heat of the stove. It utilizes a small, quiet Stirling cycle power plant built into the fan. Making it a very eco friendly fan. The Stirling cycle power plant obtains its power from rapidly heating and cooling the same volume of air. When the air is heated, it expands, pushing a piston upward; when the same volume of air is rapidly cooled, it contracts, pulling the same piston downward, providing power. The same volume of air is heated and cooled very rapidly converting the heat energy to mechanical energy used to turn the fan blade.
The Vulcan’s fan speed increases relative to the temperature increase of its heat source. So, the hotter your stove, the faster the Vulcan will run and the higher the volume of air circulated. The Vulcan stove fan uses the latest and best technology, including borosilicate glass cylinder, graphite piston and ultra low friction demagnetised bearings to ensure it is completely maintenance free. You never have to oil it!
Increases Stove efficiency – As the stove heats up, the air around the stove also heats up and rises to the top of the room. “Vulcan” helps to circulate this warm air around the room before it reaches the ceiling, thus increasing efficiency of your stove. It has an incredible capacity of moving – 350 cu. meters of air per hour around the room – depending on the operating temperature.
Greater comfort – The Vulcan Fan starts to work as soon as the stove heats up, filling every corner of the room with warm air. So you‘ll feel the warmth from your stove much quicker.
Reduced fuel consumption – Because the fan circulates the warm air through the room much quicker, you won‘t have to use as much fuel to heat your home.
No operating costs – This fan generates its own power to operate, so it won‘t need any power cords or batteries.
Ready to use – No installation required. The Vulcan Fan is ready to use straight from the box.
Starts automatically -Just place the fan on top of your stove and wait for the surface to heat up. As the temperature of the stove increases so will the speed of the fan and when the stove cools down the fan will stop automatically.
The heat is used most efficiently. Due to a large heated surface the Vulcan Fan accumulates very large amounts of power. This allows it to operate for a period of time even after the heating process has finished. sending waves of pleasant warmth to the room. This ensures that the heat generated by the heating device is used to its maximum potential.
