Ethanol Fireplace Inserts are the burners used to create an ethanol-burning, ventless fireplace. Composed of stainless steel, our ethanol burners are simple to use and create beautiful, lively orange flames. At Clean Flames, we offer manual burner inserts, electronic burner inserts and ethanol fireplace grates:
Manual Burner Inserts: A manual fireplace insert is a burner that is manually ignited. Using a funnel, simply fill the reservoir with bio ethanol fuel and use a long match or fireplace lighter to ignite. Offered with and without a lip (used for a zero clearance application), these ethanol burners may simply be inserted into any non-combustible surface. If you're converting an existing working or non-working fireplace, simply cut an opening into the fireplace's floor and drop the burner into the cutout. If you're creating your own ethanol fireplace, like with a fireplace conversion, you'll cut out a hole to the specifications (on the burner's product page) and drop your fireplace burner into any non-combustible material. An example of this burner is the Bio-Blaze Black Box.
Electronic Burner Inserts: Although electronic fireplace inserts are inserted in the same manner as a manual ethanol fireplace insert, the difference is in its ignition, safety features and convenience. An electronic ethanol fireplace insert is ignited by push button - whether on the burner itself or on its remote control. Once initiated, the fuel pump transfers ethanol fuel from the reservoir to a burner tray which accommodates only a few centiliters of ethanol at once. As time progresses, more fuel is intermittently pumped into the burner tray which reduces the amount of "exposed" fuel, thus making it safer. These burners need to be plugged into the wall. Although this may be seen as less "freedom" when designing your fireplace, it powers the burner's on-board safety monitoring which monitors the burners operation for any malfunction. It also allows for the convenience of the one-button remote control. These burners are widely used by architects, contractors and designers. An example of this burner is the bl40 or the Fire Line Automatic 2 or Fire Line Automatic 3 by Planika.
Ethanol Fireboxes: An ethanol firebox is a one-stop solution to creating a built-in or custom fireplace. These stainless steel ethanol fireplace inserts, available both single-sided or double-sided, include frames and are designed to build directly into the wall or custom cabinetry at your discretion. We offer the Ignis line of ethanol fireboxes which tender the benefit of a zero-clearance build for a flush, streamlined appearance and patent-pending safety technology that reduces the heat that reaches the box's outer later. These fireplace solutions are the preferred application by architects, contractors and designers. As with all of our fireplaces, they are suitable for both residential and commercial use. An example of this type of burner insert is fb2400d.
Ethanol Fireplace Grates: Simply stated, an ethanol fireplace grate is an ethanol burner that is cradled by a steel grate. Most popular for fireplace conversions, this type of ethanol fireplace insert may simply be set into the level surface of an existing hearth. The result is a real fire without the need for the flue nor the hassle of ash, soot or embers. Many people who desire a more traditional looking fireplace choose this option. With the grate feature, it is easy to adorn this burner with ceramic logs and make it look like a wood burning fireplace. An example of a fire grate is the insert.
