Vulcan Stove Fan: the Ultimate in Gyroscopic Technology

Vulcan Fan

Of all the stove fan brands and models available, there’s one that definitely stands out. This stove fan is the only one out of all of them that has a totally different power source. Power to run the fan is generated from a miniscule Stirling Engine cycle power plant that draws its energy from the rising heat of the source it services. The power plant transforms heat into mechanical energy through a rapid heating-cooling process that expands and contracts air back and forth to initiate the fan’s operation.   A borosilicate glass cylinder of the Vulcan stove fan

The speed at which the fan operates is contingent on the relative temperature. As temperature increases, so does the speed of the fan and the volume of air circulated by it. The Vulcan stove fan can accommodate many different stove as heat sources. The fan eliminates the heavy heat congestion centered near the heat source and disperses that air around the room it’s in, and further into the rest of the house.

The little Stirling engine used in the fan is a superb piece of top-notch engineering that will certainly draw the attention of everyone who is even a little technically oriented, and many will be hypnotized by the beauty of its operation. The Vulcan fan employs the most current and up to date technology available.
This includes borosilicate, a glass cylinder, a graphite piston, and ultra-low friction demagnetized bearings. These innovations ensure reliable construction, performance, and long life.

The construction of the fan is conductive and durable due to the materials used. The lack of plastic bushings or any other fragile components in lieu of a complete application of metal and robust electric motor ensures that the device never overheats and remains maintenance-free at all times. In fact, the only assembly required by the user involves attaching a five-winged fan blade with a screwdriver. Different views of the Vulcan Stove Fan The Stirling engine used in the Vulcan stove fan is far more efficient than TEG modules used in other stove fans. Because of that, the fan is able to operate using a massive, five blade fan that rotates in excess of 400rpm at a maximum temperature of 450C. It’s no surprise that the fan far outranks its competition, circulating the air at a rate of 215CFM at the top range temperature.

 

It’s also relatively quiet – granted, not as quiet as the TEG based fans, but you’ll still need to listen carefully to hear the rhythm of its operation. Vulcan stove fan specs table This fan starts operating at 150C and can accommodate a temperature of up to 500C, however, it is not recommended to exceed 450C. There is a clear trend among stove fan manufacturers to build fans that can operate at very low temperatures like 60C, so they can be used on appliances that have a much lower surface temperature, like gas stoves. Unfortunately, the Vulcan stove fan cannot be used on stoves with a water jacket or twin-skinned designs, so check out your stove’s operating temperatures before you purchase a Vulcan to avoid disappointment. 

Customer Ratings:

More than three quarters of the pie depicts happy Vulcan fan owners. The vast majority of people who were disappointed with their purchase are owners of heating appliances that cannot achieve sufficient surface temperature to supply the energy requirements for the fan to function properly. In a small number of cases the stove fan has operated in some unintended way or was excessively noisy and was replaced or repaired free under warranty.

Gyroscopic Origins

Brightfusion Ltd, Gloucester, UK came into being in 1999 through as inspiration to develop a showcase for everything remotely related to the gyroscope. The website features a remarkably vast array of items: engines, turbines and ornithopters . . . Some of these items came from other countries. The key here is to make such merchandise available in high quantity, and the Internet provides the most beneficial way to achieve that end. Products range from the quirky to serious technological applications, so the customer base, which has grown over the last few years, is broad, diverse and spans worldwide. Several inquiries to the company by enthusiasts pertain to a particular item no longer made. Demand for it became so great that Brightfusion decided to reproduce it and put it back on the market. The result: stocks quickly sold out and do so to this day. That item is the Vulcan stove fan.

  1. The Vulcan stove fan is a beautiful and elegant piece of engineering. It runs nearly silently and starts with a push at a surprisingly low temperature shortly after I light my Morso Stove. I have a very large room so I think it is a little underpowered to really push air in my room however I like to see it running and explain how the Stirling cycle works to visitors.

    Not only is this a fantastic product that really does work, it’s also a mini marvel of engineering and so good to watch that I now no longer sit staring into the fire. It’s also a fantastic talking point (though maybe not a good listening point as I tend to bore people to death explaining it). My wife is so tired of me waxing lyrical about it she has stopped talking to me. Unexpected bonus there then. Seriously, this product is fabulous – buy one. (I bought two).
    Tom at Stove Fan Reviews was incredibly helpful before I purchased, replying to my email queries quickly, and once I placed my order the fans were delivered the very next day. Super service.

    We had bought an eco fan last year. We managed to burn the motor out, after repairing it three times we decided to bite the bullet and buy a Vulcan stove fan. I searched high and low this was the best price I could find. I also liked the advice that this website offers.
    My Husband who is an engineer loves the fan, it is silent and we have both noticed the difference in the temperature.
    The customer service and delivery was amazing I was given an hour slot which I could track the delivery driver. I would highly recommend this company and the product is amazing.

    Our wood burner is a large one – 14kw – but it still wasn’t heating our large room well except around the stove itself
    Once adding the Vulcan Stove Fan the heat now circulates around the entire room What a difference
    Fantastic product. Best price I could find at Stove Fan Reviews & prompt delivery
    Highly recommended

    Bought a Vulcan from SFR last week as I needed something a bit more high powered than my previous 100cfm electric fan.

    Sat on top of my Hunter Herald 14 stove it’s made a huge difference to the amount of heat circulating around the house. Our thermostat is upstairs and even up there the extra heat has meant out CH boiler hasn’t needed to kick in first thing in the morning.

    On arrival the brass threaded piston sleeve was a little bit loose (presumably from shipping) so on first use there was a bit of a wobble/noise, but only needed a nip up with a spanner to get things nice and tight again and it’s almost silent in operation, can barely be heard over the air intake noise of the stove itself.

    The engineering is fantastic and it’s a lovely thing to just watch when it’s going.

    Overall I’m very impressed and would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a fan with a bit more ‘oomph’ than the usual electrical offerings, especially if you like to watch a piston engine in action in your own living room.

    Five stars.

    We have been using this stove fan for over a year now. It has worked well and been very efficient. It begins to work at lower temperatures than some other fans which is very helpful to get the air moving where you want it sooner and it stays working even if you want to run the stove at a lower temperature.
