To Whom It May Concern:
This letter serves to verify that the Buckley Rumford 30-inch, and 48-inch fireplaces, manufactured by the Buckley Rumford Company are new technology, clean-burning devices that meet the US EPA Phase II particulate emissions rate standard for wood-burning stoves (i.e. 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart AAA). According to this EPA Standard, wood-fired stoves cannot exceed a weighted average emission rate of 7.5 g/hr to acheive certification. Particulate emissions generated by the Buckley Rumford 30-inch and 48-inch fireplaces were measured by our laboratory according to Washington State testing protocols and were found to be less than 7.5 g/hr.
Beginning March 7, 1996, OMNI Environmental Services, Inc. (now OMNI-Test Laboratories, Inc.) conducted closed-door emissions testing on the Buckley Rumford fireplaces. The emissions results averaged 5.08 g/hr for the 30-inch model and 7.10 g/hr for the 48-inch model.
