This versatile part can function either as a reducer or increaser between the 6" and 8" sizes of Imperial stove pipe. The part, like other Imperial stove pipe parts, is made from 24-gauge steel and comes with a beautiful black finish. Because of overlap, you should deduct 11/2" from the actual length to calculate the installed length. The part carries a 1-year manufacturer's warranty. An 18" clearance to combustible materials must be maintained in the finished installation.

Can this piece be used to connect a 6" flue from a FC500 to a 8" crimp 90 degree elbow flue pipe?

This elbow is designed to be a universal adapter. It should perform in your application perfectly well. However, some tweaking of the 6" end may be necessary to allow it to drop down inside the flue collar.
