New Damper Assembly - Damper2

Postby kevin_t » Sat Dec 13, 2014 11:56 am

We have made a few minor changes to the damper assembly that we believe results in a better / nicer damper. As a company, we believe in continuous improvement based on feedback from customers.

Here are the changes
- Increased height above the butterfly damper control to top of the collar. This provides more room for the stove pipe to anchor to the collar and provides a little more latitude for moving the stove around a bit.

- Butterfly damper control is better weighted thus I think it stays open unless purposely closed. You will notice is it shaped a little different and never is 100 percent closed (instead about 80 percent)

- Better seating of the spark arrestor. Although the time / instance is small, there are sometimes when a spark arrestor has popped out and fallen into the stove. I believe this resolves this.

These are currently shipping. The only downside, is it is harder to remove the butterfly segment for packing around a pipe. I think the amount of time people used this is small, and honestly since it closes well flat, it still can be packed over the pipe pretty well.

Let me know if you have any questions
Thanks

Please post some pics of the old and new style. Side by side and looking down into them would be good for comparison.

The butterfly does come out but is a bit harder to do

What makes it harder to remove the butterfly for packing?

Say for instance, you are packing a decent amount of gear, plus the possibility of meat, I'm assuming it's easiest (in terms of packing efficiently) to break down the damper as much as possible?
