Abstract

The University of Arkansas StoveHOGS team developed a method for efficiency and particle emissions testing of wood fired heaters. The EPA currently regulates the particulate emissions of wood burning stoves, and the goal of this project was to develop a cheaper, easier method for small manufacturers to test the efficiency and particulate emissions of wood burning stoves without sending them to a testing facility. The team used EPA and CSA testing standards to design and test a method that could accomplish the same task in a simpler and more cost effective manner.
