Why would you say that? It's double walled pipe. When I first saw it I thought they were suing the flue pipe for the vessel but it's just coil of copper inside the pipe. Seems like a perfectly fine idea to me.
That was my thoughts, since it's double walled, how would it be any more of a creosote generating maching than one with regular pipe?
Obviously this isn't a very common part/piece since they're hard to find.
Is there nothing out there like it? I'm sure you can make a homemade version with wrapping a pipe with your own copper, but buying a piece that's already put together & with a 2nd wall is much more ideal & worth the premium.
How else do you guys transfer heat from your coal/wood stoves to get hot water with thermodynamics?
