EPA Qualified, highly efficient, clean burning wood gasification unit. Portage & Main Outdoor Water Furnaces have been known as the efficient one since 1973. The wood gasification process gives optimal high efficiency by extracting heat from the gases and other emissions that are released into the atmosphere in conventional furnaces. This optimally high efficiency gives you optimal savings all around. The optimal burn produces more heat from less wood, lowering wood’s fuel price. It takes less wood to give a greater BTU output. The wood in our gasification process gives up to twice the heat than in ordinary boilers. It burns cord wood – less processing costs of cutting and splitting. You have less work.

Natural gas is a gaseous fossil fuel consisting primarily of methane but including significant quantities of ethane, propane, butane, and pentane—heavier hydrocarbons removed prior to use as a consumer fuel —as well as carbon dioxide, nitrogen, helium and hydrogen sulfide. It is found in oil fields (associated) either dissolved or isolated in natural gas fields (non associated), and in coal beds (as coalbed methane). When methane-rich gases are produced by the anaerobic decay of non-fossil organic material, these are referred to as biogas. Sources of biogas include swamps, marshes, and landfills, as well as sewage sludge and manure by way of anaerobic digesters, in addition to enteric fermentation particularly in cattle. Approximately 22 percent of the energy consumption of the US comes from natural gas. More than 62.5 percent of the homes in the US use natural gas as their main heating fuel. Natural gas is also an essential raw material for many common products, such as: paints , fertilizer, plastics, antifreeze, dyes, photographic film, medicines, and explosives. We also get propane when we

    I don’t suppose you can run this on pellets…? I noticed the stoker units on the site.

    @jackel440 Thanks for the great feedback…the Optimizer250 incorporates the existing features of the conventional Portage and Main unit – longevity, reliability and efficiency.

    I have to say I think this is one of the best designed gassifiers on the market.I would love to have one of these sitting on my farm if it was in my budget.I love the quality and pride put into the furnace.Nice job!

    Watch a live burn of the Optomizer 250 at Farmfest in Redwood Falls, MN August 3-5 and at Empire Farm Days, Seneca Falls, NY August 10-12.

    Former President Ronald Reagan had made a big issue about the Global Warming crisis in America and has done his best in making people aware of this issue. I think people wont notice the damage energy gases have done to the environment until they SEE and FEEL the damage done. We should all be aware before there is yet another hole in the ozone layer because of these gases.

    It can come in just fine but can’t leave? How is this?

    I love to hear discussion about Energy Crisis.
