Xaralyn brings an extensive collection of fireplaces without a flue on the market. Our collection consists of electric fireplaces of various sizes and fire styles, each of which creates its own fire image. In addition, Xaralyn offers the safest, worldwide patented bio ethanol burner with a ceramic stone.
Our electric and bio ethanol inserts can be combined with our large collection of fireplaces, which can easily be placed and moved, partly because no flue is necessary. Our inserts are also ideally suited for placing in an existing (not working) fireplace, or as a built-in unit in walls, cupboards or other objects.

The Xaralyn bio ethanol burner with patented ceramic stone is a revolutionary product, the safest open fire! The big difference between our bio ethanol burner and other burners on the market is that the Xaralyn bio ethanol burner contains a ceramic core that slowly absorbs the liquid fuel. This causes the burner to not burn pure bio ethanol, but the harmless gas it releases, this makes the fire burn more gradually. The result is a safer and cleaner burner, which is easy to ignite and gives a beautiful consistent fire.●How long will a bio ethanol burner burn?
A fully stocked bio ethanol burner from Xaralyn will burn between 3-4 hours. Large burners can hold more bio ethanol, the burning time is approximately similar.●What are the advantages of a bio ethanol burner with ceramic stone?
The patented ceramic stone in the bio ethanol burner absorbs the bio ethanol completely and also closes off the burner. Therefore, it is impossible for the bio ethanol to run or leak out of the burner, even when it is held upside down!
●How does a bio ethanol burner with ceramic stone work?
Due to the fact that the burner is completely filled up by the ceramic core, it is not possible for the liquid fuel to leak – even if the burner is tilted.
Because of the built in safety device, it is simply not possible to fill the bio ethanol burner while it is lit. The bio ethanol burner can only be filled when it is closed off and therefore extinguished.
Because the burner is completely filled by the ceramic core, it is possible to use a bio ethanol which contains more than 96% alcohol. This is the purest bio ethanol available, which makes the combustion completely pure (without hazardous smells and remains) and produces a nice yellow flame.
It is not the pure bio ethanol that burns, but the evaporation of the bio ethanol from the ceramic core when it is exposed to the air. The gradual combustion makes the bio ethanol burner with ceramic core completely safe and economic in use. There is no need for a flue as there are no hazardous fumes. The bio ethanol burner is surrounded by an additional outer reservoir for extra safety. This is filled with ceramic wool, which absorbs excess fuel in case the bio ethanol burner is over-filled.
This unique burning principle has been developed by Xaralyn, worldwide patented and carries the DIN 4731-1 quality mark.
Bio ethanol is alcohol that has been made unsuitable for consumption. We call this process denaturing. Bio ethanol is sometimes also called bio alcohol.
Our CL100 bio ethanol is made by fermenting sugars in sugar cane, grains, sugar beet or corn. To stimulate this process, production organisms such as yeasts are usually added.
Our CL100 bio ethanol is 100% pure bio ethanol with an alcohol percentage above 95%. CL100 bio ethanol is produced in the Netherlands.
The other components consist of substances that ensure that a nice yellow flame is created during combustion.
The CL100 bio ethanol is not suitable for use in all bio ethanol burners with an open reservoir: CL100 bio ethanol has been developed for our bio ethanol burner with ceramic stone. The ceramic stone absorbs the bioethanol, it is not the alcohol that burns, it is only the alcohol vapors that come out of the stone that ignite.●Does the bio ethanol fuel produce a smell?
The combustion of bio ethanol genaerally produces an odor when the bioethanol is not well filtered or produced from (too many) different raw materials. The alcohol percentage is also of great importance; the lower the alcohol percentage, the more smell will be noticeable. Bio ethanol with a lower percentage of alcohol contains a larger percentage of additives, which results in a less pure combustion.
No combustion is completely odorless. One person perceives more smell than the other. The combination of bio ethanol CL100 and the evaporation from the absorbing ceramic core in the burner ensures the purest combustion as possible, leaving a barely perceptible odor.
If a bio ethanol burner with a ceramic core will be extinguished, a possible odor will be stronger.●Can I also use another type of fuel instead of bio ethanol?
No, we strongly advise against the use of any other fuels. The reason herefore is that the ceramic core will absorb this other fuel and will cause an impure combustion. This may cause an unpleasant odour and unnecessary smoke and soot production. Moreover, it may cause the ceramic core to get clogged by the chemical supplements in these (less pure) fuels, which in turn will prevent a normal combustion. As a result, in the long run the core might not be able to absorb fuel anymore. Using different fuels also cancels the warranty on the burner.
We therefore advise you to use CL100 bio ethanol, which has been specially developed for the ceramic burners.●Why does Xaralyn only sell bio ethanol per 1 litre bottle?
We do not recommend using bio ethanol in jerry cans for safety reasons. Our liter bottles are equipped with a special cap. This cap reduces the chance that a spark can reach the alcohol. If a spark comes into the bottle, it will be knocked out of your hands by the pressure. With a jerry can you run the risk of getting the bioethanol over you.
In addition, larger jerry cans are usually made of a softer material which slowly dissolves in the pure bio ethanol, causing a contamination in the bio ethanol.
The electric fireplaces by Xaralyn are fitted with a glass panel, where the flame image is realized by a projection of light.
Once you have plugged in the fireplace it is ready for use. The electric fireplaces by Xaralyn are multifunctional. For example, you can regulate the heat and the flames as most fireplaces come with a remote control. Whether the fireplace of your choice is equipped with the relevant functions, please check out the description of the specific model in our collection electric fireplaces for more details.● Which outlet/socket do I need for an electric fireplace?
You only need a grounded power outlet for a connection with an electric fireplace. Preferably this socket/outlet is situated directly behind the fireplace, so that the wires are not visible. The electric fireplaces by Xaralyn are supplied with an electricity cord of about a meter. Please do not cut this cord! If you want to increase the length of the cord, please use a grounded socket.● How much power does an electric fireplace consume?
The power consumption of an electric LED fireplace depends entirely on which features you use. If you use the fireplace only for decoration then power consumption is approximately 10-15 Watt per hour, these costs are nil.● What is the heat output of an electric fireplace?
The electric fireplaces by Xaralyn are primarily intended as atmosphere creators, but can also be used as extra heater. Depending on the chosen electric fireplace, they can be heated up to approximately 2000 watts. The exact heat output of your fireplace of choice can be found in the specifications or in the user manual.● How many watts do I need to heat my room?
With an average ceiling height you can roughly stick to:
The Opti-Myst or water vapor fireplaces create a flame image by projecting light on ultra-fine water vapor. The water vapor is generated by an ultrasonic evaporation with an evaporator, after which the water vapor rises by means of the heat of halogen lamps or a heat coil.
Water vapor fireplaces are very maintenance-sensitive due to the combination of water (lime) and electricity.● What maintenance do I have on my Opti-Myst fireplace?
It is recommended to regularly clean the evaporator and watertank of the Opti-Myst fireplace. The evaporator will last between 6-12 months with normal use and must then be replaced.● What type of lamps are there in an Opti-Myst fireplace?
The water vapor of the Opti-Myst fireplace mainly increases due to the addition of heat. This heat can come from a heating coil or from halogen lamps.
In the case of using LED lamps there is a heating coil in the Opti-Myst. In case of using halogen lamps, this heating coil is not necessary.
The energy consumption of the halogen lamps is less than the consumption of LED lamps in combination with a heating coil.● Can I still purchase halogen lamps for my water vapor fireplace?
The production or import of halogen lamps for direct connection to the mains (such as lighting) has been banned within the EU since 1 September 2018.
The halogen lamps used in a water vapor fire are outside this prohibition.● Why is not possible to order only an Opti-Myst Cassete 400 or Cassette 600?
When an Opti-Myst Cassette 400 or 600 is not built in correctly the article will not function well. This will have an influence on the lifespan of the article and could cause damage to the piece of furniture it was built into.
No! Although there is hardly any particulate matter in the exhaust, the fire does extract oxygen from its surroundings, which is why the use indoors is not permitted.● What is the consumption of an outdoor gas-fire?
The consumption of an outdoor gas-fire depends on the height of the flame. At the highest level the outdoor gas-fire uses significantly more gas. With a small flame a large gas cylinder lasts for approximately 24 hours, a small gas cylinder approximately 10-12 hours.● Which type of gas do I use for an outdoor fire?
A Xaralyn outdoor fire is only meant to be used combined with propane- or butane gas.● Can I leave my outdoor fire outdoors?
All models are made from weather resistant materials and can remain outdoors all year round. However, we do advise you to use the protective cover which is included with each fire.● What happens with wind and rain?
The flame of the gas outdoor fireplace can take a little wind and rain. In case the flame goes off then the gas valve will automaticly close
Production of these fireplaces starts with a frame of wood. On this wooden frame different stones are stuck in a layer after which the chimney gets its shape. In this way we get a real stone fireplace with all the advantages of real natural stone, but with much less material and much less kilos.
The stones can be left fairly rough; unpolished. The stones can also be polished nicely smooth (matte-shiny); polished
All fireplaces are made by hand from natural stone. Each one is completely unique with natural imperfections. These natural stone fireplaces have a vintage, weathered appearance.●What is fossil stone?
Fossil Stone is a unique natural stone type corresponding to rough or polished marble which we have attached to a wooden surface. This creates the feel and look of real marble, yet it is relatively light weight making it possible to move the Fossil Stone fireplace around easily. Fossil Stone is a natural product, thus there may be small colour-and/or structural abnormalities in the material. As a result, every fireplace has its own unique character. Xaralyn offers a range from polished (smooth and shiny) to unpolished versions (rough structure and some difference in appearance) of the stone.●What is composite stone?
Composite stone is a mixture of grinded stone with synthetic resin. This creates a structure of sandstone with characteristic unevenness/bumps. Through the use of the artificial resin, the weight remains relatively low.●How is a Xaralyn fireplace delivered?
Our Xaralyn fireplaces are delivered as one piece. While the matching fireplace insert will be delivered in a separate package.●How do I install a Xaralyn fireplace?
Our Xaralyn fireplaces are delivered as one piece. While the matching fireplace insert will be delivered in a separate package, which can be easily assembled. You can install the wall fireplaces by using the manual section “on the wall”. For all fireplaces (wall-models or freestanding models) no further assembly is required.
A fireplace has an open combustion. Due to the open combustion, harmful flue gases and combustion residues also enter the home. Almost 70% of the heat disappears through the chimney.
Advantages and disadvantages of a fireplace:
A gas fire is easy to use and has flames that can hardly be distinguished from a fire. A gas fire has an open or closed combustion. Flue gasses released must be removed via a flue.
In the Netherlands, a gas fireplace will only be possible in the future by using gas bottles.
