WOOD AND COAL STOVES
If you are planning to install a wood stove, we recommend that you:
1.Choose a stove that has a label of a recognized Testing Laboratory
(such as ULC, WH, ITS, UL or OMNI).
2.Choose the right size stove. Do not buy one larger than you need.
3.Connect only one appliance to a chimney.
4.Never overfire your stove. If any part of the stove or stove pipe is
glowing red, then you are overfiring. Immediately close the stove’s
dampers until the system cools. The high temperatures caused by
overfiring can permanently damage the stove and may overheat
nearby combustible walls and furniture.
5.Install the stove and stove pipe as described in the Installation Instructions accompanying the stove. Be certain to maintain the required
clearances to combustible construction.
6.Keep your flue gases between 300º F and 500º F. This will maximize
efficiency while minimizing condensation and creosote formation.
Do not fill your stove with wood and allow it to smolder for 8 to 10
hours. This condition produces large amounts of creosote in the
chimney.
7.Do not burn sea driftwood or treated wood. Salt (NaCl) and chemical
components are highly corrosive to all types of stainless steel.

GENERAL INFORMATION
CREOSOTE - Smoke from a wood fire always contains some unburned
gases and a fog of unburned tarlike liquids. When these materials condense they form a dark brown or black deposit called creosote. Creosote
formation in a chimney cannot be eliminated, but it can be minimized by:
1. Keeping the temperature of the gases in the chimney above 300ºF.
2. Making small hot fires rather than slow burning, smoldering fires.
COAL - Some coals contain large quantities of Sulphur (up to 7%). When
coal is burned, Sulphur and coal ashes are deposited in the chimney
flue. This deposit combines with moisture to form a highly corrosive
acid (Sulphuric Acid). In order to protect your chimney connector, we
recommend that you:
1.Burn only low Sulphur coals (less than 1% Sulphur).
2.Have your chimney cleaned within 48 hours of shutting down your
stove at the end of the heating season. Be certain that all the soot
is removed. Wipe the chimney flue using a strong solution of baking soda and water. This can be done by wrapping a rag around a
chimney cleaning brush, dipping it in the baking soda-water solution,
then passing it through the chimney three or four times.
CHIMNEY OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Keep your chimney and connector clean.
Wood stoves can quickly create large deposits of creosote in the chimney.
Some wood stoves can create enough creosote in two weeks to cause
a chimney fire.
NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT TO SCALE.
When using a wood stove, we recomnend that you :
1.Initially inspect the chimney system weekly. From this you will learn
how often it will be necessary to clean your chimney.
2.The chimney should be inspected at least once every 2 months during
the heating season to determine if a creosote or soot build-up has
occurred: if creosote or soot has accumulated, it should be removed
to reduce the risk of chimney fire.
3.Have your chimney cleaned by a qualified chimney sweep. If you want
to clean your chimney yourself, then clean your liner using plastic,
wood or stainless steel brushes. Do not use a brush that will scratch
the stainless steel interior of the chimney.
4.Do not expect chemical chimney cleaners to keep your chimney clean.
Their use does not negate the necessity of periodically inspecting and
cleaning your chimney.
CHIMNEY FIRES
If you are having a chimney fire, follow these steps :
1. Close all heater doors and combustion air controls.
2. Alert your family to the possible danger.
3. If you require assistance, alert your Fire Department.
4. If possible, use a dry chemical extinguisher, baking soda or sand to
control the fire. Do not use water, as it may cause a dangerous steam
explosion.
5. Watch for smouldering or fire on combustibles next to the stove,
stove pipe and chimney. Check outside to ensure that sparks and
hot embers coming out of the chimney are not igniting the roof.
6. Do not use the stove again until your chimney, connector and stove
have been inspected by a qualified chimney sweep or Fire Department
Inspector.

1.Stack the telescopic length on top of the appliance and attach it to
the appliance using 4 metal screws provided.
2.Remove the screw locking the top and bottom of the telescopic length
together. Extend the telescopic length up to the chimney and fit it
snugly over the chimney adaptor. Attach it to the adaptor using the
4 metal screws (see figure 2).
3.Secure the top and bottom parts of the telescopic length together
using one metal screw.

INSTALLATION NOTES
1.This single wall stove pipe is used to connect a solid, liquid or gas
fired appliance to a factory built or masonry chimney.
2.Install the chimney and stove in accordance with their Installation
Instructions.
3.The clearance between the stove pipe and combustible material must
not be less than 18 inches (45.7 cm).
4.Do not enclose this stove pipe.
5.This stove pipe must not pass through attics, closets, walls or ceilings.
6. FOR MOST STRAIGHT INSTALLATIONS, only a telescopic length will
be required. The telescopic length adjusts from 3’6” to 5’6”.
7. FOR INSTALLATIONS THAT REQUIRE MORE THAN ONE LENGTH, WE
RECOMMEND THAT THE MAXIMUM VERTICAL LENGTH OF SINGLE
WALL BLACK CONNECTOR THAT CAN BE INSTALLED SHOULD BE 20’.

MASONRY CHIMNEY
Have your chimney inspected by a qualified chimney sweep or Fire
Department Inspector before using it. Masonry chimneys should only
be used if they are in good condition and have been built to the National
Building Code.
There should be a horizontal opening into the chimney through a non
combustible wall. Fit the Masonry Adaptor (SWMA) into this hole (see
figure 1). Attach the adaptor collar to the masonry wall using screws
and masonry anchors. Seal the joint between the collar and the masonry
with a high temperature silicone caulking.
Continue with the instructions on page 4.

STOVE ADAPTOR (SWAB)
Some stove collars are too small for
the telescopic length to fit inside.
In this case, install a stove adaptor
(SWAB) on the stove. The telescopic length will fit in the adaptor.
