What the design of the chimney depends on what

The chimney is the main element of the fireplace, on which its effectiveness depends. It must ensure the correct traction, which consists in the constant influx of fresh air necessary to maintain the combustion process. The main parameters of the smoke channel is its length and cross -sectional area. In order to ensure normal traction, the length of the chimney should be at least four meters. The cross -sectional area depends on the volume of the fireplace and should provide a sufficient amount of oxygen. The channel is too narrow will not be able to guarantee the flow of the required amount of fresh air, and the traction is too wide, so its diameter is selected individually in each case. It is very important that the channel area is the same along the entire length, while the fewer turns and corners, the better the craving. The area of ​​the mouth of the canal (the place where it is connected to the combustion chamber) in no case should be less than its cross section.
