The Tunguska sauna stove is often used in Finnish sauna. Perfectly heated steam comes out from behind the stones.

Most often the door is made of cast iron or steel.

Tunguska is the most popular and purchased stove for bath rooms

This is due to two factors:

  1. Firewood in this oven burns at a very high temperature. The stove is compact, easy to fit in any room, and at the same time very powerful.
  2. The furnace is made of heat resistant steel parts.

    That is why deformation does not occur, even at high temperatures.

Logs in tunguska burn very intensely, and the stove itself, despite its small area, transfers several times more heat into the room than stoves made of steel or other black metal. The niche in which the stones lie is heated a couple of times faster than in other stoves.

IMPORTANT: it is allowed to put not only ordinary logs in the stove, but also coal briquettes, as well as fuel for the fireplace. The oven of this brand is provided with protection against the ingress of carbon monoxide into the room.

Furnace design

Views- Pros and Cons + Videos Tunguska is popular in throughout Russia and even abroad. It is often presented at exhibitions and a sample from Russia is not left without attention.

It was invented for the purpose of rapid heating, so that the room could be easily heated. For half an hour, the bath heats up to 100 C.

This figure is considered a reference.

Furnace filling is the most important thing. The chimney and the heater are made of chrome steel, which can withstand high temperatures. Thanks to this, manufacturers have increased the scale formation, as well as the maintenance service. Tunguska are also made of wood, usually they weigh up to 60 kg.

In order for the walls of the furnace to heat up well and quickly, metal is used for their manufacture up to 2 mm thick. A cover that is installed on top creates a gap. Thus, the air enters the trap, heats up, goes into the room, and cold streams fill its place. This is the fastest heating method. Infrared radiation (generated from the flame) passes through the enclosure and the thermal efficiency is increased.

FOR INFORMATION: the stove has a pyramidal shape, flames surround it from all sides. The stones that are inside the case itself are a kind of battery. Their job is to absorb heat and turn the water into steam.

The channels for the gas outlet are located according to a special design, this allows the wood to burn completely. To enhance combustion, a channel is also supplied through which air passes.

Firewood is stacked on a cast iron grate that can withstand very high temperatures. The ash collection box is also designed to control the intensity of the flame.

This oven is distinguished not only by its functionality, but also by its ease of use. Steel doors have a unique design aimed at rapid cooling of the side located in the bath itself, and in a short time and without additional steps. Those interested can order a glass-ceramic door, it will look very impressive.

The manufacturers of the stove also provided heating of water. The drive itself feels good in the steam room, and this will provide the bath attendants with hot water.

There are two types of water tanks

  1. Samovar - it stands on the chimney pipe, where it will be provided with heat. With a decrease in the water level, the heating temperature also decreases, the liquid itself is a "safety net" against boiling.
  2. Built-in tank - the tank is located on the left or right side of the oven itself.

    In this case, the water is heated due to the construction: hot walls give off heat to the wall cut to the water. The walls are very close to each other.

The casing can be made at will in any color, and in order to withstand high temperatures, it is covered with enamel. Thus, individual models are obtained.

Features of operation
