Jøtul Combustor Guide

In the 1990s Jøtul was a pioneer in catalytic woodstove technology and several good models were manufactured. Many of these wood-burning stoves are still in use today, although Jøtul has discontinued all versions with catalysts.

The Condar factory in North Carolina still manufactures replacement combustors for catalytic Jøtul stoves, allowing homeowners to get the full warmth out of their woodstoves. Two of the combustors are very unusual.




Jøtul Models - Firelight, Alpha, Series 8 and 8AP, 3TDIC-2
and 3TDIC-2AP

The big, traditional-styled Jøtul Firelight and the contemporary design Jøtul Alpha woodstove uses a Condar Combustor Number CC-552. This combustor is 4 in (10.16 cm) wide, 7 in (17.78 cm) long, 2 in (5.08 cm) thick. It has 25 cells per square inch and is canned. Condar suggests you order a replacement expanding gasket along with combustor CC-552.

Note: Firelight models manufactured today by Jøtul don't use catalytic technology.

Item # CC-552 (ceramic): $164.00 Item # CS-552 (steel): $199.00

 

 

Accessories:

All these stoves use "canned" combustors that are banded first in CatGard gasket and then in stainless steel. These generally do not need additional gasket, but if you do, you can order additional gasket here:
CatGard 2.0" x 22.00" x 1/16" (5.08 cm x 55.88 x 0.15875): $2.75

 

An option upgrade to the above thermometer is our Digital Catalytic Monitor. In addition to all the benefits of a standard thermometer, the Digital Thermometer provides accurate readings for hard-to-access woodstoves on a clear, bright display.
Digital Catalytic Thermometer: $119.00

Jøtul Models - 8, 8C, and Series 3 Models

The earliest Jøtul 8 and 8C models with draft wheel used round catalytic combustors. Some of these were retrofitted. The combustor is 6 in (15.24 cm) round, 2 in (5.08 cm) deep, with a special rig for rotating the combustor. Condar is still fabricating this product and you can order combustor CC-007 to receive the welded assembly around your combustor, for fitting into your Jøtul stove.

Note: The combustor required for a Jøtul Model 3TDIC may be this round, rotating combustor, or it may be an internal catalyst for the Jøtul 3TDIC-2. Simply replace whichever you already have with the equivalent unit from Condar.

Notes

It is best to check your owner's manual or remove your old combustor to insure you are ordering the correct size. The Earth Stove product line was purchased by Lennox Company. They no longer produce catalytic woodstoves. We market replacement catalytic combustors and CatGard gasket, but do not offer other replacement parts for Earth Stoves.

If an error is discovered in this information, or you have additional helpful information about the installation of replacement catalytic combustors in your woodstove, please feel free to contact Carolyn Greene, Plant Manager at Condar's factory in North Carolina.
