    *Venting Requirements: This unit requires venting pipe with an inner diameter of 6 Inches. Please see the Venting Components section on this page for venting pipe that must be used with this unit.

    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.

    I am wishing to install a Kingsman wood stove with an 8 inch flue with a 6 inch chimney. Would it be best to transition from 8 inches to six inches closer to the stove or closer to the chimney?
    1 Answers
    The transition should occur as late as possible to ensure best operation of the wood stove. This usually means transitioning to the smaller diameter at the wall or ceiling, whichever setup you may have.

    October 1, 2014
    I am going from an 8" oval opening Vermont Castings stove to a 6" round Hearthstone Heritage stove. I have 12' of single wall 8" pipe which enters the box at the ceiling whic becomes 8" double wall for about 8'. Should I use the 6 to 8 inch adapter at the new stove and use existing 8" pipe (slip joint is used) or should I purchase 12' of single wall 6" pipe (including a new slip joint) and perform the 6 to 8 inch conversion at the ceiling box? My concern is for proper draw rather than expense. This is my primary heat source.
    1 Answers
    It is definitely the better idea to use 6 inch single wall piping from the stove to the ceiling and use the 6 to 8 adapter at the ceiling support box. This is especially true given your climate. The newer stoves that utilize a 6 inch collar do not release the high temperature flue gases to the chimney system that the older stoves did. As such, it is important to keep the chimney sized to 6 inches for as long as possible. The flue gases can cool too rapidly in an 8 inch chimney and loose their buoyancy, causing the stove to smoke.

    My stove has an 8'' pipe but my chimney has a 6''. Is it OK to reduce the 8'' right off my stove?
    1 Answers
    Stoves are very sensitive to being sized down by 1 inch or more. The effect is that of forcing the same volume of water through a smaller hose. Increased pressure and speed of flow results. Likewise, sizing down a stovepipe by two inches will increase the flow of flue gases, causing the stove to burn hotter and go through fuel more quickly. If there is no way around sizing the appliance down, it should be done as late as possible. As such, I recommend using 8 inch stovepipe from the appliance to the wall or ceiling, then using the 8 to 6 inch reducer right before you adapt to the Class A chimney piping. This should help to reduce the overdraft effect.

    Do you have this part "FSD-BM0071" in an 8" to 9" style?
    1 Answers
    No; the only 8" to 9" increaser we sell is the Selkirk 304-Alloy Heat-Fab Saf-T Increaser - 8 inch to 9 inch.

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