Platinum Bright Embers (PBE) are catalytic embers for your vented gas fireplace or log set. When placed on top of existing mineral wool ember beds, the catalytic embers combust unburned fuel from the burner to provide a dynamically more realistic looking ember. In addition to creating a bright flickering appearance like that of real wood ember beds, these embers radiate broadband infrared heat thus creating a warmer fire and reducing the formation of soot on gas logs.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Platinum Bright Embers work by combusting fugitive hydrocarbons from the burner catalytically which cause the embers to flow and fluoresce. Good combustion requires fuel and air so proper installation is key to the best aesthetic and efficiency improvements to the fireplace. Begin by lighting the fire after proper installation. Using a pair of long needle nose pliers or hemostats, take a single square of the PBE, gently pull it apart to expose more air to the internal parts of the ember and place at the base of the fire atop the existing mineral wool fibers, vermiculite, or sand. Once the ember reacts with the fuel and air, it will begin to glow providing a visual indication of how the product is intended to work. Place the remaining embers according to your preference taking care not to clump the material together. If starved for combustion air, the embers will fail to glow.
