Standards and Certifications


STANDARDS AND USES OF FLUE PIPES AND FLUES
Firstly, it should be clarified that the flue is the structure that carries the smoke up above the roof, while the flue pipe connects the heating appliance to the flue. Chimneys, flues and flue pipes must bear CE marking as required by the European standard EN 1856-2, which specifies that all must bear designation that lists the characteristics and performance of the product and enables installers to choose the right product for the purpose.


As far as Italy is concerned, in May 2008, the standard UNI/TS 11278 was issued concerning the choice and correct use of flues and flue pipes according to the type of fuel used. Basically, the standard deals with the resistance to corrosion of various materials and specifies in greater depth the regulations given in the above-mentioned standard EN 1856-2. This Standard develops the principle that products must pass a corrosion resistance test or otherwise be built exclusively with materials indicated in specific tables.

The V2 and V3 tests are accepted for solid fuels; in alternative, three materials are acceptable: 2 types of stainless steel (AISI 316L and AISI 904L) and vitreous enamelled steel. The normal carbon steel , also known as "iron alloy steel", with which painted flue pipes are usually built is therefore not considered suitable for installation in wood or pellet stoves.
