In order to stay safe around a fire, it is important that you are aware of the three essential components that actually allow one to burn. After all, whether you prefer the authenticity of an open fire or find comfort in the enclosed nature of a stove, every fire needs the same three basic things that make up the ‘fire triangle’. Here at Denton Stove Centre, we want to provide our readers with as much information as possible. Read on as we go over everything you need to know…

Heat

In order for a fire to burn, there needs to be enough heat to raise the fuel to its ignition temperature. For example, the general ignition point of coal is around 350°C, although this can differ depending on the type of coal. The ignition point of dry oak wood is around 480°C. It is important that your fire is able to maintain this required temperature, or it will start to go out.

Fuel

The fuel you choose to burn will play an important part in the other two factors that make up a fire. After all, as stated above, each combustible material has a different ignition temperature. There are many different fuels to choose from including bituminous coal, anthracite coal, kiln dried logs and imported firewood. In fact, the fuel you choose will often be based on the stove you own unless you own a multi-fuel stove.

Oxygen

Combustion occurs when the fuel in a fire mixes with oxygen in order to generate heat energy. This means that a fire needs a constant supply of oxygen in order to continue burning. Usually, this supply will come from the air in a room, which is why most stoves have a vent so that they can access a continuous supply. If you remove the oxygen supply from a fire, it is known as ‘smothering’ and when the oxygen is depleted, the fire will go out.

Even when you are using a stove, it is important to ensure that your fire is equipped with the three essential components that to allow a chemical reaction to take place and generate an efficient fire output. After all, a lack of one out of three will lead to a poor-quality fire or a completely extinguished fire.
