Cast Iron – The original choice
Cast iron is still the best material for the construction of a heater . Many have tried to produce stoves using cheaper or lighter materials , but no one has managed to make a wood stove with the unique properties of cast iron . In all heaters as heat grows , causing the distortion . However, these are made of cast iron , heat is transferred gradually to the stove , so the cast iron stoves of Viometalko not lose their original shape .
Properties of cast iron
The cast material is very resistant to fire so that the walls of the stove are not destroyed by heat. Also chytosidiros we use in Viometalko is almost twice the thickness of the sheet used in other atsalosompes. Thus, woodstoves us maintain the temperature for a longer period of time, distributing the heat much better than the sheet so you always feel comfortable when you are near a heater Viometalko.
Differences between steel and cast-iron stove
Each cast in his own mold after the metal recovered high temperature, metal foundry. After the necessary processes (cleaning – grinding – lathing-dye) pieces are joined together by screws, and use of a suitable refractory insulating high strength at high temperatures.
The Steel Stove manufactured from sheet steel cut-pressed and ilektrosygkolleitai in its final form.
The cast-iron stove to warm the room needs a little more time than that steely, yet retains and releases heat more time after stopping compared with steel. Also a steel furnaces have internally firebricks (vermiculite) to conserve heat, but this results in losses in heat released in the space as shown in the diagram.
