Many think stovepipe is the pipe that runs from the appliance
(woodstove, oil burner, coal stove, etc.) right up through the roof. Not
so, stove pipe only runs from the appliance to where it will go through
a ceiling or wall. It then needs to be connected to a safe chimney
Stovepipe always needs to be installed with the "male-end-down". Many believe
the opposite because they think the stove pipe needs to assemble the way
the smoke goes, so they install with male-ends-up, only to find later a
black oozing liquid running down their pipe. Installing with male-end-down
allows those creosote drippings to go back down into your stove instead
of running down your pipe onto the stove or floor. Creosote dripping make
a big mess and they stink big time, adding to the fuel of why the "women-folk"
frown on the burning of wood as fuel.
All stovepipe is pre-painted black, so with any of the pipe there is a
"burn-off" time when you first crank up the stove with the new pipe. Be
prepared to open a window or door to allow the smoke and fumes from the
curing paint to escape.
We carry two types of stovepipe in stock; double wall and single wall.
Single wall stovepipe is used in most applications.
However, clearance to combustibles needs to be 18" or more and maintain
that clearance until it enters the chimney.
We carry in stock three different types of single wall stovepipe. They
are listed below with links in the order of their quality.
Stovepipe is used when you don't have 18" or more clearance
from combustibles. Most of the double-wall stovepipe allows for 6" clearance
from wall combustibles and 8" from ceiling combustibles. This pipe is excellent
when installing a newer close-clearance woodstove or appliance.
22 gauge stovepipe is
the highest quality we carry. It bolsters a thick 22 gauge wall and has
welded seams. The female ends are expanded, so there are no crimps on the
male ends. No crimps mean that the pipe holds a true size through-out its
run. This pipe will last for many, many years. Comes in 6, 7, & 8".
24 gauge is also an excellent pipe and the same as the Heat-fab
in that it has welded seams and expanded female ends. The only thing that
makes it a lower quality than the Heat-Fab is the thickness of the walls.
comes in 6 & 8".
24 gauge is much like to pipe you have probably seen in your hardware
store or in one of the big chains except that they usually carry the much
thinner 26, 28, or 30 gauge pipe. Comes in 5, 6, 7, & 8"
is the Heat-Fab
24 gauge all stainless steel pipe. This pipe is normally used to reline
chimneys, but many of our customers use it for stovepipe. Used as stove
pipe, this pipe should be at the top of this list. It is quite a bit more
expensive and is not painted black, but.... you will never have to replace
stovepipe ever again, ever! It is made exactly the same as the Heat-Fab
22 gauge, but is 24 gauge Stainless Steel pipe instead. Comes in 5" - 12"
We carry in
stock 3 different brands of double-wall stovepipe. All have outer walls
painted black and inner walls of stainless steel. They are listed below
in the order of their quality (in our opinion).
DVL is our most popular and definetly out ranks the other two.
25 year warranty, comes in 6" & 8".
comes real close to DVL in looks and performance. It beats DVL with a lifetime
warranty, but we're not crazy about the crimped ends. Comes in 6", 7",&
double wall comes in 6" only and comes with a 10 year warranty.
