Like all the other models in the series, the Wiking Luma 3 is a convection stove which heats up and distributes the air to the room quickly. The Luma 3 has a solid cast iron bottom in the combustion chamber and a robust cast iron door. The Luma 3 has a practical storage space below the combustion chamber, which is opened by pressing lightly on the door.
In a Wiking wood-burning stove, the regulation of air during lighting and re-stocking is managed automatically through the Wiking Automatic device. A heat-sensitive bimetallic spring expands or contracts depending on the temperature in the wood-burning stove.
The Wiking Automatic offers many advantages including:
The combustion chamber
All Wiking stoves have a highly-insulated combustion chamber of Vermiculite plates. Vermiculite is a natural material originating from Africa, which has superior insulating capacity combined with a low weight when compared to firebricks from other manufacturers. The Vermiculite plates ensure a temperature increase which is fast enough for the combustion to be clean and efficient.
