Fumes from new stove pipe

Fumes from new stove pipe

PostBy: rberq On: Sun Sep 08, 2013 8:04 pm

New stove pipe gives off a lot of fumes during the first fire. I think I could avoid having the fumes in the house, by pre-heating the pipe in my garage or outdoors. But I don't know how to heat it. Would an inexpensive heat gun do the trick? Propane torch held not-too-close? Other suggestions?

Burn it hot until it smokes and get it over with, thats what I do.It is a little scary thou, but It has to burn off, you can do it fast all at once or take forever. Just kill the smoke detectors first and open the windows. Unless you have another stove or 55 gal can to do it outside. A heat gun may work but I would think the heat needs to come from the inside or you could burn the paint job.

Fred, I'm getting worried, you are agreeing with me too much lately.. :lol: :lol: Really, when I rebuilt my stove for the first time I did not think about the new pipe, then one day the flue temp hit about 900 degrees and all at once smoke poured off the pipe like crazy, the alarms went off, I din't know what the hell was going on the first few seconds. But after the smoke cleared and I let the stove cool off that was it, no more smell, it was kinda fun, your wife will love it.. :P :P

She's already planning to spend the smokey time SHOPPING. Not sure I can bear the expense, that's why I'm looking for an alternative. :|

How about an adapter to hook up to the exhaust manifold of a truck, then burn Nitrous at high RPM... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I put my new pipes into a burning wood stove with a thick bed of coals. I dont think it will work as good without the bed of coals. I set them in for just a minute or so, then turn it over and do the same. You dont want to get them red hot, just hot. The paint will turn a faded color. That will burn most of the smell off. I do mine in my house and it works fine. Doing it outside over a fire should work fine too, or in a stove outside. If you use pipes that snap together, do that before burning them.

Correct me if Im wrong, say the pipe gets cured at 500. It wont smoke again until it gets over 500 right? Maybe with a gas grill I'm thinking maybe you could save some of the smoke from your house. But hey I tossed mine right on and let her rip and it wasnt all that bad. Just have a fan on and have a candle burning in a corner somewhere to help relinquish the after odor.

You already answered your own question.

.Yep burn it in the garage connected to another stove out there. A small hand fired should do the trick. Fire it up, get it hot and let it go out. Next day or 3 go retrieve the pipes, disassemble from the garage stove and reinstall inside.

Or........ build an outdoor chimnea where you can attach pipe to it. All summer long you could be seasoning the pipes while enjoying the outdoors.

Chiminea .... that's such a funny word. Now I'll be saying that all day long and laughing at myself. Chiminea .......chiminea .........chiminea .... :funny:



Fumes are a part of running stoves. Just the way it is. Fire up some trash and let her burn off.

I managed to turn my SS pipe to a nice shade of bronze after a trip up over 900° one day. Damn that memory of mine ... knew I forgot to CLOSE something .... :gee: toothy
