Are there 4.5" to 5" black stove pipe increase available? This would be for a French stove that uses a 4 1/2 inch pipe and has to mate to a five inch stove pipe?
By Brennan W. on December 21, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, we do not carry a 4.5" to 5" increaser. You will likely need to have this custom fabricated by a local metalworker.

I just purchased a new wood burning stove and it is a 6" chimney as where I had an 8" in there! Is there any issue running the increaser/reducer right off the top of the stove or should I run the 6" to the ceiling and do the reduction there? I would rather not have to change all the stove pipe all the way out of the roof.

Answer:If this is a modern, high efficiency stove, they are particularly sensitive to draft and the stove will not perform as well as it would with a chimney of the same diameter.

My stove has a solid pipe out the top with a dimension of 8 3/8 inch OD. Will this Imperial 6 inch x 8 inch Pipe Crimped increaser work for my application?

I am replacing my current, worn-out 6 to 8 inch reducer/increaser. I do not want to have to mess with the overall length of my stove pipe. How tall is this Imperial 6 Inch x 8 Inch Stove Pipe Crimped Increaser? I need one that is about 5 3/4 inches long/tall.

Answer:Please note that this product is an increaser and it is imperative to know whether you are in need of an increaser or reducer to maintain the male end down connection, but the total height of this increaser is 7 inches. For the installed length, you subtract 1 1/2" for the crimped end connection so the installed length would be 5 1/2".

We had to replace our wood burning stove, but the existing chimney pipe is 8 inch in diameter and the pipe from the new stove is 6 inches. Will this work for what I need? What pipe would you recommend?

This increaser can indeed work for your application. For best performance of the stove, it is recommended to size up the stovepipe as late as possible. The rest of the pipe run can be complete with a welded 24 gauge pipe. You will also need an adapter to connect the pipe to the stove, which is the Dura-Black Welded Steel Stovepipe to Appliance Adaptor - 6-Inch Diameter

My stove pipe is 8 inches in diameter and the chimney is 6 inches. Do you have something that will work?
By eFireplaceStore on September 16, 2014
A reducer such as the Snap-Lock Black Steel Stovepipe 8-Inch Male to 6-Inch Female Reducer
can be used for your application. It is recommended to reduce from 8 inch to 6 inch as late as possible. As such, you should utilize 8 inch stovepipe up to the transition point at the ceiling or wall, then use this reducer before connecting to the 6 inch chimney.

I am installing a wood stove. The existing pipe is 8 in. The stove is 6 in. I need a reducer where the 6 in is a female fitting and the 8 in is a male fitting.
Do you have this?

I have a stove that has a 6 inch pipe and the hole in the masonry chimney is 8 inches. I understand that I can use it to make my connection, but what does the crimped or non crimped mean to me? Which end needs to be crimped - the one coming from the other stove pipe, or the one going into the chimney?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 22, 2013
Answer:The crimped increasers are designed to allow more installation versatility, as the crimped end tapers down to allow it to push into a piece of pipe below it. Uncrimped piping is very product line specific and is designed only to work with uncrimped piping from the same product line. When using crimped pipe and increasers, the crimped end is designed to face down, allowing any creosote or condensation to drain into the pipe section below.
