Introduced by Ace Energy in 2018 , Newburn™ is a fully authorised, HETAS approved solid fuel briquette. We believe it is one of the best on the market. It is comprised of the best cokes from the Americas along with top quality Anthracite from here in the UK, and a little bit of our blending magic. The Newburn briquette shape and design follows the same principles as the Burnwell Blend, being not only a pleasing shape but also serving functionally for strength, ability to light and airflow to keep the fire burning.
HETAS APPROVED SMOKELESS
Burns well, but smokey!
Plenty of heat. Not sure how it got the status of smokeless though. True, when it's going well, its smokeless, but getting there is very smokey! The fuel is definitely house coal based; you can smell it. I would be very surprised if there was any anthracite in there. Good product at a good price, but I can see why it's a cheaper fuel."
Not recommended for open fire without deep ash pit
Clean burning, good initial flame pattern but produces a large quantity of sand like ash that soon builds up under a normal open fire grate, blocking out any under grate air and leading to a slow burn and eventually unburnt bits of fuel which making cleaning out a messy job. This rapid ash build up also leads to risk of grate overheating and distortion. Briquettes very easy to handle and stack on the fire. Not enough heat for mid-winter use and goes cool quite quickly so no warmth in the morning. It may burn better on fires with a deep ash pit, but I would not recommend it for use on a normal height grate open fire. Real Flame is a much better product."
