How Hot Does Oak Firewood Burn?
No files uploaded.
Measurements made in several oak log fires indicated that the maximum temperature of the fire (in the crevice between the logs) was 900°F to 1200°F and that the gas just outside the flame envelope was 200°F to 400°F. A temperature of 900°-1200°F is barely the ignition temperature of the volatiles and results in their slowest reaction rates. Temperatures of 200°-400°F are cool enough to stop any combustion reaction.
Oak Firewood is the best to heat your home, use in your fireplace and wood stove. Getting a nice mix of Oak and a softwood will help get your fire started faster.
