I've got a guy coming over next week to check out the job & make sure the id of my chimney is big enough. If this works out I'll install my smaller F500 Jotul in the house for Spring & Fall heating & just use the Hitzer for coal burning when the temps drop. The F600 Jotul I've been heating the house with will move to my shop.
You might reconsider using two stoves.. Or at least reconsider trying to run two pipes up one chimney. I've never used a SS liner but there are many reports that they don't last very long for coal. Fly ash from coal contains sulfur which combines with moisture to form sulfuric acid. This acid and metal DO NOT get along very well. Below is a picture of a normal stove pipe after using it for the winter then I didn't clean it. The summer humidity along with the fly ash made quick work of it
A better solution might be just to use coal in the Hitzer and not use the other stove. Coal fires can be choked down to run low and slow in the shoulder months. There are a few people here that use both wood and coal but many go coal and don't look back. Just my two cents worth
