INTRODUCTION

THE DROLET WOOD STOVE MANUAL

SBI INC., one of the most important wood stove and fireplace manufacturers in North America, congratulates you on your purchase and wishes to help you get maximum satisfaction from the wood stove you have selected. In the pages that follow, we will give you advices on wood heating and controlled combustion as well as technical specifications regarding installation, operation and maintenance of the model you have chosen.

The instructions pertaining to the installation of your wood stove comply with ULC #S627 standards. You must follow them very carefully in order to eliminate any chance of encountering major problems.

Read this entire manual before you install and use your new stove. If this stove is not properly installed, a house fire may result. To reduce the risk of fire, follow the installation instructions. Failure to follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury or even death.

PLEASE CONSULT LOCAL AUTHORITIES, BUILDING DEPARTMENT OR FIRE MARSHALL ABOUT RESTRICTIONS, INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS AND FOR THE NEED TO OBTAIN A PERMIT BEFORE YOU INSTALL YOUR WOOD STOVE.

KEEP THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

WOOD HEATING

Many consumers choose wood as the main or auxiliary energy source for heating their dwelling or secondary residence. This source of energy has the advantage of being abundant, relatively cheap and easy to store so that you are assured of energy autonomy for more of less longer periods.

THE CONTROLLED COMBUSTION WOOD STOVE

The main feature of a controlled combustion wood stove is an air tightness that is the most perfect possible, and must of course be equipped with the most efficient heat exchanger possible in order to transfer maximum heat to the ambient air. It is generally doubled with firebricks, and it may have a glass door, with steel or cast iron frame. The main feature that makes it a controlled combustion wood stove remains its air tightness, which allows the user to control the quantity of oxygen admitted into the wood stove.

The wood will burn slowly if the wood stove draught keys are adjusted in order to reduce the oxygen supply in the combustion chamber to minimum; on the other hand, wood will burn quickly if the draught keys are adjusted to admit a larger quantity of oxygen in the combustion chamber.

ASSEMBLING THE STOVE

Note: This section applies to models Compak, CS1200, ML, Little Sawman, RC and Nordic only.

1- Mount the 4 legs using 2 screws per leg.

2- Mount the ash lip with two screws.

3- Install the heat shield between the front legs, just above the leg supports.

4- Bend the heat shield slightly to make it fit between the back legs.

INSTALLATION OF YOUR DROLET WOOD STOVE

POSITIONING THE STOVE

It is very important to position the wood stove as close as possible to the chimney, and in an area that will favor the most efficient heat distribution possible throughout the house. The stove must therefore be installed in the room where the most time is spent, and in the most spacious room possible. Recall that wood stoves produce radiating heat, the heat we feel when we are close to a wood stove. A wood stove also functions by convection, that is through the displacement of hot air accelerated upwards and its replacement with cooler air. If necessary, the hot air distribution from the stove may be facilitated by a blower or the installation of floor or wall grids. Except for model FX3000, it is strictly forbidden to install your wood stove in a mobile home.

Important:

A wood stove must never be installed in a hallway or near a staircase, since it may block the way in case of fire or fail to respect required clearance. The wood stove must not be hooked up to a hot air distribution system since an excessive accumulation of heat may occur.

FLOOR PROTECTION

Your woodstove should be placed on a non-combustible surface. Having these minimum specifications.

* Height, from stove base to ceiling.

You may decrease these clearances by installing heat radiation shields between the walls or the ceiling and the stove. These heat radiation shields must be installed permanently, and can include sheet metal, a rigid non-combustible sheet or a masonry wall. The installation standards of such heat radiation shields are listed on the following page.

IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO PLACE WOOD WITHIN THE MINIMUM CLEARANCES.

INSTALLATION OF A HEAT RADIATION SHIELD

Following the installation of a heat radiation shield, the clearances mentioned on the stove certification plate may be reduced as stated in the following table.

FOR BARON 1880SP & 2000SP USING THE ENVELOPE

It is strictly forbidden to connect the envelope to existing liners or existing floor registers or grilles.

CHIMNEY

Your wood stove may be hooked up with a prefabricated or masonry chimney. If you are using a prefab chimney, it must comply with S-629 standards; therefore it must be approved for up to 2100oF (650° C) and have 2" (51 mm) of insulation. It is extremely important that it be installed according to the manufacturer's specifications.

If you are using a masonry chimney, it is important that it be built in compliance with the specifications of the National Building Code. It must be lined with refractory bricks, metal or clay tiles sealed together with fire cement. (Round flues are the most efficient).

The interior diameter of the chimney flue must be identical to that of the stove smoke exhaust. A flue which is too small may cause draft problems, while a large flue favors rapid cooling of the gas, thus enhancing creosote build-up and the risk of chimney fires. Current practice requires that the area of the chimney flue do not exceed the stove exhaust area by more than 35%. For a round pipe, 35% of the area represent approximately 1” (25 mm) on the diameter. (ex: For a stove with an exhaust of 6”, the chimney flue should not exceed 7” of diameter.) Note that it is the chimney and not the stove which creates the draft effect; your stove's performance is directly dependent on an adequate draft from your chimney.

The following recommendations may be useful for the installation of your chimney:

1)It must rise above the roof at least 3' (0,9 m) from the uppermost point of contact.

2)The chimney must exceed any part of the building or other obstruction within a 10' (3,04 m) distance by a height of 2' (0,60 m).

3)Installation of an interior chimney is always preferable to an exterior chimney. Indeed, the interior chimney will by definition be hotter than an exterior chimney, being heated up by the ambient air in the house. Therefore the gases which circulate will cool more slowly thus reducing the build-up of creosote and the risk of chimney fires.

The draft, which is created by the tendency for hot air to rise, will be better with an interior chimney.

4)You must not install more than one heating unit per chimney flue.

5)The use of a fire-screen at the extremity of the chimney requires regular inspection in order to insure that it is not obstructed.

STEP BY STEP INSTALLATION OF YOUR CHIMNEY

Note : The way to install your chimney may vary from one chimney manufacturer to another. The instructions contained in this manual are based on the recommendations of chimney manufacturers whose products are sold at many Canadian retailers of wood stoves and related heating accessories.

WALL SUPPORT SYSTEM

If your chimney must rise along an outside wall, you need to connect it to your stove through an adjacent wall. For this type of installation, the following items are normally required :

Chimney

Suitable lengths of chimney (enough to go up to your roof)

An adjustable wall support

A wall thimble

An adequate number of wall bands (one for every 8 feet of chimney, excluding the roof portion)

A stove pipe adapter

One insulated tee & plug

A chimney cap.

9

Roof guys (if required)

Stove pipe

An adequate number of stove pipe sections.

A 90o elbow

1- Start by positioning your stove where you would like it to go, taking into account the minimum clearances to combustible material. You will then be able to determine where the chimney will pass through the wall. You will probably have to adjust the stove position slightly to ensure that your chimney will run between the studs. You can use a stud finder to locate the studs. Use a spoke saw or jig saw to cut a hole, remembering that you need to maintain a clearance of 2 inches between the chimney and any combustible materials. For concrete walls, cut a hole slightly larger than the outer diameter of the chimney.

2- Once the opening completed, you need to frame in the area to allow for the installation of a wall thimble. A wall thimble is not required for installations through concrete walls.

3- You must first secure the wall thimble into the exterior wall surface. Then, do the same inside and fasten the trim plate.
