Midtherm Flue systems Ltd offer a complete range of stainless steel flue systems (including twin wall and black powder coated) for all kinds of appliances from Wood Burning stoves to large commercial boilers. A flue is a duct pipe, or opening in a chimney for conveying exhaust gases from a fireplace, furnace, water heater, boiler or generator to the outdoors.
These are the pipes that take fumes away from your stove and provide fresh air for the fuel to burn efficiently. Midtherm flue systems offer a complete range of stainless steel flue systems (including twin wall and coloured vitreous enamel) for all kinds of appliances. A flue system can be constructed using a series of pipes and components to convey the gases from the appliance or open fire to the outdoors.
Key reasons for use of appropriate Flue Liners:
1) stop the products of combustion from corroding brick chimney
2) reducing the possibility of and containing chimney fires
3) enabling efficient maintenance of a chimney
4) insulated flue improves the efficiency of the appliance
Where there is no existing chimney then a Twin Walled stainless steel flue system is required. The pipes on a wood burning stove can become extremely hot and twin wall (i.e. double-insulated pipes) protect the ceiling; walls and roof from the heat transferring through the pipes and creating a potential fire hazard.Twin wall systems are used for both interior and exterior flue systems and are also suitable for multi-fuel appliances. These are more complex systems and subject to building control regulations, therefor it is always recommended that a professional HETAS registered installer is used to fit the stove and flue system.
The right flue system ensures your appliance is safe and reliable as well as efficient, creating the right draw of air to ensure all gases are taken up the flue system.
