Draw Collar Draft Enhancer

ie ul ins thimbl.jpgie ul ins thimbl.jpg

The first fan-free draft inducer in the world. Picture on Right is for Draw Collar for Insert.

This amazingly simple device that will change how you look at draft problems. The Draw Collar is easy to install, silent and inexpensive to operate. Most importantly, it will keep homes smoke free. Simply plug it in, and in the time it takes to gather wood for the fire, the flue is hot and drawing heat up the chimney. The Draw Collar pre-heats the flue, creating draw that will not only make fire starting easier, but will also keep smoke going up and out the chimney and not into your home. 

• Designed for residential use on wood stoves and inserts
• Uses 500 watts (4.1 amps) to generate more than 500°
• Completely silent because there’s no fan
• Insures all smoke exhausts out, with no chance for reverse draft
• Less creosote build up in the flue

UL Listed Insul-Flue Insulated Thimble

ie ul ins thimbl.jpgUse this thimble when you need to pass through a combustible wall and into a masonry chimney.  This unit is sold in two parts, the thimble cover assembly and the thimble itself. 

You need one thimble cover assembly per installation.  The thimble cover assembly protrudes 13" into the room.  The number of thimbles you need depends on the thickness of the combustible wall.  The 8" long thimble is designed to pass through a wall with maximum thickness of 7".  You can add an additional 8" by cementing two thimbles together with Rutland Stove and Gasket Cement so you can pass through walls clear up to 15" thick.  Or you can cut the thimble down with a hacksaw for thinner walls. 

The Insul-Flue Thimble requires a 15" or 17" square opening for use with 6" diameter or 8" diameter pipe, respectively.  the thimble cover assembly plate is 17" X 17" for the 6" thimble, and 19" X 19" for the 8" thimble.  Complete instructions accompany each unit.

Note: When ordering make sure to order both the thimble and the thimble cover assembly for a complete installation.

Barometric Damper

ie barodamp.jpgBarometric dampers stabilize flue draft by drawing "room air" into the flue.  Why do this?  Too much draft causes erratic burning and wasted fuel. 

A stable draft provides stable heat and efficient fuel consumption.  It operates automatically. A flap swings open wider as draft increases, thereby letting in more air.  And as draft reduces, the flap closes to reduce air. 

Our high-quality model is packed individually, each with its own tee included. 

Our barometric damper is available in 5" and 6" and 8" diameters.  The 5" and 6" dampers are 24-gauge; and the 8" damper is 20-guage.
