Tiled Stoves ATÉNA

ATÉNA

The ATÉNA tile stove is a step into modernity and the future. The stove’s design and manner of burning wood and heating differs from classic rustic tile stoves.

This stove puts out plenty of heat (3 – 11 kW) and is comparable to our traditional stoves like OLYMPUS or AFRODITA, but of course the design is different.

At first glance the stove catches your eye with its modern, compact shape and clean lines. The firebox is mounted on a low tile base, the upper cornice is all tile, and the flue pipe is in the back. The firebox is surrounded by glossy tiles of simple shape, solid red or white in the standard model without any designs. This gives an impression of luxury and elegance that is enhanced by the increased depth (by approx. 16 cm) compared to classic stoves. The ATÉNA protrudes significantly into the space and can become a distinctive feature of a modern interior.

In addition to choosing colors and tile designs, you can also add another row of tiles to the ATÉNA above the firebox. The extra space can be filled with fire brick or other material to hold heat. The immediate heat output will be diminished slightly, but your stove will radiate pleasant, healthy heat for a few hours longer.

The ATÉNA not only looks modern, but it is technically advanced. Unlike other stoves of comparable output it is fitted with a grateless E2 stove liner with tertiary combustion. And what does this mean?

Grateless firebox

It is mostly out of habit that many people prefer a firebox with grate, yet this manner of combustion also has several disadvantages. Air that is not pre-heated enters the firebox through the grate and lowers the combustion temperature. This lowers the efficiency of the heater. A grate firebox has an ashpan, which must frequently be emptied. If the ashpan is not emptied regularly, it will fill up and limit the flow of air through the grate. The grate will stop being cooled by air flowing through it and may become deformed or twisted. And unlike fossil fuels, wood does not require a grate to burn. This grateless firebox has been developed based on new knowledge about wood combustion. Grateless fireboxes better heat wood gases and increase the efficiency of the heater. This is achieved by removing the grill from the firebox. The bottom is much deeper, you do not need to remove ash as frequently (once every 3–4 weeks, even longer). Also, even the smallest coals are burned which otherwise would have fallen through the grate into the ashpan. This dramatically decreases the amount of ash in the stove. Pre-heated air for combustion is supplied from the interior or exterior through the door. Air is designed to flow around the glass in the door to prevent the buildup of tar and ash on the glass. Flowing air also cools the ceramic glass to prevent it from becoming damaged. The manner of starting a fire is slightly different than for stoves with grates. Most customers are used to starting fires from below, but in general and particularly for grateless fireboxes, it is more effective to start a fire from above. Larger pieces of wood are placed at the bottom, then some firestarter sticks, smaller pieces of wood or wood chips. When the firestarter catches, it will get enough air and won’t make a lot of smoke. The smaller pieces of wood or wood chips will catch from the firestarter and then fall onto the larger pieces of wood, lighting them as well. This manner of heating is very effective.

Tertiary combustion

This technology is based on burning the residual combustible gases created when burning fuel. This makes use of the residual gases, which otherwise would just go up the flue unused. Metal cascades with holes (nozzles) are placed over the fire, which brings additional air to the top of combustion chamber. The air is guided through a channel along the combustion chamber, where it is preheated to a high temperature. The residual flammable gases that accumulate at the top of the fireplace are again oxygenated with warm air and flash with a blazing flame. They transmit another heat and minimum smoke is fed into the chimney. This makes for higher quality, more efficient combustion. Thanks to tertiary heating you save. Increasing stove efficiency decreases total fuel consumption and also prolongs burning time. At the same time, the flue gases vented up the chimney are cleaner, which means less soot in your chimney and less chimney maintenance.

ATÉNA stoves cannot be combined with water heat exchange.

As with other stoves, the recommended fuel is dry hardwood or quality wood briquettes. Wood should not have a moisture content greater than 20%, which corresponds to roughly 2 years of storage. For proper burning and heating it is important to connect to a suitable and properly sized chimney with a flue pipe at least 150 mm in diameter with effective height of at least 5 meters. Naturally, when installing the stove it is necessary to comply with fire protection and safety measures, including placement of the stove at a distance of at least 20 cm from walls (and twice that distance from combustible materials), placing the stove on a fireproof base (extending at least 300 mm in front of the door and ashpan and 100 mm in other directions), etc.

Professional installation and connection can be arranged upon sale, but are not included in the price of the stove.
