The Aquatherm Modular flue system is a double-walled stainless steel flue system that uses highly efficient insulating material and is ideally suited for use with all types of fuels. The components are built to exact specifications under factory-controlled conditions. The strong outer stainless steel casing and couplers protect the flue from external damage and corrosion. The smooth stainless steel inner liner produces a rapid stabilisation of draft and heats up quickly to prevent harmful condensation as waste gases are exhausted.
A special construction method is employed whereby the inner wall and outer wall are connected to each other on only one side. This allows the strong outer wall to bear the structural load, and leaves the inner wall free to expand or contract without stresses.
An extremely effective gas-tight connection system makes it possible to safely connect to ‘forced draught type’ over pressure burners.
Because the Aquatherm Modular flue system uses high efficiency insulation, the heat transfer factors become minimal, making it possible for the system to be enclosed within a building structure while still conforming to building codes.
The Aquatherm Modular flue system has been designed for the simplest step-by-step installation. The lightweight modular sections are connected with simple twin-screw, easy to use locking bands that provide a sturdy connection and smooth appearance. The assembly of the flue does not require the use of any special tools or machinery and can be installed in a short amount of time.
The Aquatherm Modular flue system is available in the following internal diameter sizes: 130, 150, 180, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 550 and 600mm. Standard modules are available in 1.0 metre and 0.5 metre sections. A wide range of accessories and fittings are available making the system capable of handling all types of applications.
The Aquatherm Modular flue system is designed for a working temperature of 55°C and is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 95°C for short periods.
Because the system is compact and lightweight it requires considerably less space and structural support than masonry stacks and other flues.
