Stove glass has gone white / milky- crazed
Cheaper stove glass will have a lower thermal threshold and where high temperature burning fuels such as cite or anthracite and coal are used in large quantity then it can lead to an “overburn” resulting in the glass going milky, crazed or spider web like appearance. or when the fuel is burnt too near the glass instead at the back or centre of the firebox.
The solid fuels can be burned and as long as they are away from the glass there should be no effects like mentioned above. We stock premium Neoceram which is designed to withstand temperatures up to 800 °C and continuous service at 700 °C and therefore will have a much higher threshold.
Stove glass is capable of withstanding very high temperature, paper lights at 253 degrees C, wood burns at around 500 degrees C, coal burns at around 600 degrees C however.
when to replace the existing stove glass?
Stove glass is the most often replaced part of any working wood burning stove. This heat resistant ceramic glass has excellent performance properties when it comes to heat resistance and thermal stock resistance however it is still susceptible to both breakakes and also scratches like normal glass. If your glass shatters or cracks we highly recommended that you replace this glass before working your stove for your safety and efficient working of your stove.
There are quite a few reasons why one might consider finding a replacement fire glass. Sometimes, the glass that comes with the stove is not of the highest quality and it will crack because of the heat, it could also be that soot attaches itself to the glass and, as you bake it over and over, it becomes irremovable.
