The grate or fire basket holds the flames and can be fitted with a gas burner, while the flue or chimney extracts the smoke.
Lining the flue will seal and insulate the chimney, maintaining high temperatures within the flue and preventing the smoke from condensing into soot.
A stack thermometer installed on the stove flue will give you information on gases leaving the stove.
no air rises up the chimney, usually because the flue is blocked
British Energy is seeking Government approval to install a flue gas desulphurisation system in two generating units at Eggborough power station, near Selby.
We climbed back onto our skidoos, tearing across country to a Lapp-style octagonal hut where we warmed our extremities at a roaring log fire under a central flue .
However, Jon Goodwin, for the board, said work on items such as an extractor fan, fire door, gas flue and expansion joints was incomplete.
Vented units are designed to be permanently located next to an outside wall, so that the flue gas vent can be installed through a ceiling or directly through the wall to the outside.
This design has an additional high temperature mass located at the hottest part of the flue to provide several hours of stored heat for the Stirling engine.
