WHAT IS WAX FUEL?
The ARK STOVE is designed to run on common 100% Paraffin wax and Soy wax blends. This is the same wax that is used for food processing, cosmetic production and candle making. Wax is not proprietary and there is no secret formulation. Using a high quality wax free of fillers will give optimum results. For an ultra clean, odorless and powerful flame we recommend 100% Saturated Paraffin wax. The ARK Stove is easy to re-fuel with wax by using it in granulated, prills or pastil form. Paraffin wax is available from multiple sources in many forms.
WHERE CAN WAX BE PURCHASED?
Paraffin wax is readily available from multiple sources and in many forms. 100% Paraffin wax granules, pastilles or prills (small beads) are available from candle making suppliers and refineries in quantities ranging from 1 lb. to train loads. When using the ARK Stove we choose 140 to 145 degree melt point paraffin wax which is available in slabs (10 LB). To facilitate feeding the ARK Stove the slab is chopped or ground into smaller pieces that can easily fit into the fuel port.
