Stirling Engine Design
The Steelhead is a classic Stirling engine stove fan which is 100% mechanical with no electric components which can burnout if overheated. This is because it is a precision engineered Stirling engine built with durable materials such as stainless steel, brass and aluminium.
For optimum performance it uses advanced materials such as a silver thermodynamic heat plate, precision bearings and graphite. The glass piston cylinder and low friction bearings ensure quiet operation and low maintenance. Stirling engines are powerful, extremely reliable and with care will last a lifetime.

When you use a Steelhead stove fan you can reduce your wood usage by up to 22% and heat your room up to 40% faster.
When you order a Steelhead you will also receive a comprehensive maintenance kit and the option to purchase a dust cover. The dust cover is a beautiful clear dome which can be used while the stove fan is in use. Not only does it enhance the beauty of the engine, it also assists in keeping it free from dust or ash.
