Lining an existing stack
> The existing masonry chimney itself isn't very well adapted for the evacuation of combustion gases coming from your heating appliance. Indeed, the existing stack can be too old, too large and its tightness can't be guaranteed.
> Your actual installation may cause a risk of domestic fires, condensation or bad chimney draught. It is essential, to get the best of your system chimney, using the right flexible liner, adapted, conformed and safe. You then require lining your existing masonry chimney.
> The lining principle consists of introducing inside your existing stack, a stainless steel flexible liner adapted to the evacuation combustion gases.
Why should I insulate my chimney?
> For any chimney to work successfully, it must be kept warm. The draw up a flue is directly related to the difference in temperature between the flue gasses and the air outside.
Do I need to insulate my chimney?
> For most chimneys that run up through the inside of the house it is probably not necessary although at Poujoulat we suggest that chimneys running up a gable chimney or exposed outside walls should be insulated.
Why should I use 904L Flex?
> When burning some types of coke and solid fuels the smoke and gasses produced can carry very aggressive corrosive elements. If the air supply to the appliance is closed down and the stove allowed to slumber the concentration of these corrosive elements is greatly increased which can dramatically reduce the life expectancy of the liner. At the same time the increased soot build up can also lead to a chimney fire. 904L grade stainless steel has a higher anti-corrosion resistance than 316L stainless steel when using these types of fuel and appliance operation and should provide increased longevity.
> It is important that chimneys serving all types of solid fuel appliance are swept regularly to remove soot, tar and potential blockages.
