The St Croix Lincoln Corn And Pellet Stove

The St Croix Lincoln is a multi fuel corn stove and pellet stove that can burn all types of pellets, corn, wheat, rye, cherry pits & distiller's grain. It won a 'Vesta' award in 2008.

The St Croix Lincoln has a separate hopper for the ignition system which uses wood pellets. This allows difficult high moisture fuels from the main hopper, such as corn and distiller's grain, to be ignited automatically. (See Comments below).

To cope with high ash levels and clinkers from various fuels, the Lincoln uses the 'revolution' burn pot which is used in the St Croix Revolution furnace. This burn pot breaks up clinkers and dumps the ash as it rotates on a timed system to suit the fuel being burned.

Producing 50,000 btu. and capable of heating 2,100 square feet, this is a powerful stove. Both the combustion and convection fan speeds are adjustable.

This furnace has control board diagnostics relating to the high temperature limit, the flame detection system and the state of vacuum in the firebox.
