Wireless Flue Gas Temp Monitoring
« on: December 06, 2017, 10:27:57 AM »

has anyone looked into any wireless systems to monitor flu gas temps? In my opinion the flu gas temps of your stove is one of the best indicators of efficiency. I currently have a standard temp gauge with 4" probe to measure flu gas, and it is very handy to look at when im out at the stove (if its firing). Im looking for a wireless system that can data log flu temps. that way I can review 12 hour cycles and see where I was at. I should also get a real idea on species of wood and how it effects this.

thanks

The lascar wireless data logger that I bought makes a thermocouple version that could withstand the heat from the flue. I bought the regular temp gauge which the literature says is only suppose to be go to 140 but it has been fine so far for my water line.
