Will the 8 inch version of this work with Metal- Fab double wall black pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2013
Answer:Because of the different male end up system and outer diameter of the DSP pipe, it cannot be used with any other double wall piping systems.

Can this damper kit be used between a wood furnace and the flue?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2013
Answer:As long as you are using Selkirk DSP stovepipe for the rest of the interior pipe run, this damper kit certainly can be used for the purpose. Most modern wood-burning furnaces do not require an inline damper for operation, but one can be used to prevent drafts when the unit is not being burned.

I have Selkirk 8" Supervent stove pipe. We would like to install a damper . Will this damper mount directly to the stove and will my pipe fit onto it?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2013
Unfortunately, this damper assembly will not attach directly to the stove. You must first use the Selkirk DSP Double-Wall Black Stovepipe Stove Adaptor
, if you do not already have it. The damper section can then be mounted to the adapter.
In regards to your existing pipe, Supervent is actually the name of Selkirk's double walled Class A chimney piping. While the Selkirk DSP double walled stovepipe can attach to the chimney, an adapter must be used. Do you already have the Selkirk DSP stovepipe for inside the room or do you need that as well? The Supervent (stainless) chimney is usually only used through the attic and outside the house.

I have a back draft problem with my wood stove. The stove is in the basement and when the stove is not in use it tends to back draft into the room. The room smells like stale smoke. I recently changed the combustion air source so the stove will draw in outside air instead of room air, but when I hooked the pipe up again it still back drafted making the basement smell like smoke. Will your damper kit prevent back-draft?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 21, 2012
Answer:Adding a damper will largely eliminate back drafting when the stove is not in use. However, you will need to purchase a damper that is compatible to your needs. This particular damper section is designed to work with Selkirk's double walled stovepipe system. Is this the kind of pipe your are using? If not, is the stovepipe double or single walled?

I have wood burning stove with this double wall black stovepipe damper and it attached 6 inch steel chimney liner.
I want extend between damper and chimney liner about 12 inch longer with black stovepipe.
Could you please recommend 12 inch black stovepipe?
it must be attach between damper and 6 inch chimney liner.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 5, 2012
Assuming you have made a good connection between the DSP damper and the chimney liner you have now, you should be able to add an additional section of regular DSP pipe on to the the damper assembly, to extend your vertical run.
The DSP product can be seen here
You will need to select the 12 inch section from the drop down menu, as this is the length you requested.
