Insulating around chimney liner

Insulating around chimney liner

PostBy: davis817 On: Tue Dec 15, 2009 11:00 pm

Hi, hoping someone can help resolve a question I've had for a while. I recently installed a 316Ti liner in my chimney for my wood stove. The stove sits in front of the fireplace and the piping runs through the damper plate opening and up the length of the chimney, about 20 feet. At the top I have a plate covering the flue with a cap on top . I packed some unfaced fiberglass insulation around the liner just under the plate at the top of the chimney. I was told by a local chimney sweep that this was acceptable. However, I have read elsewhere online that mineral wool or other such insulation should be used near the pipe. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks for any help.

That should be fine. Tell me though. What is this substance you are burning in the stove. I believe you called it wood? What is this wood? :roll: :lol:

I didn't insulate at all and mine pulls a great draft. I've read that the more common and easily installed insulation is vermiculite.
