DuraPlus 6 in. Round Chimney Cap

$ 39 96

Overview

The DuraVent DuraPlus Round Chimney Cap is designed to stay cool on the outside, provide a hot draft on the inside, boost stove efficiency and has a fire-safe design that protects both the chimney and the building. This triple-wall chimney cap protects against dangerous sparks, helps prevent rain from entering the chimney and features two insulating layers consisting of a ceramic blanket plus air space. The ceramic blanket insulation is held securely in position, eliminating hot spots common with loose-fill type insulations. In the event of a creosote fire, the compressible blanket insulation permits the chimney liner to expand outwardly in a radial direction. Designed for normal, continuous operation at 1000°F flue gas temperatures, DuraPlus is subjected to rigorous and stringent HT requirements of the UL standard, including 1-hour at 1400°F, plus three 10-minute chimney fire tests at 2100°F. Required where chimney pipe terminates above the roof line, this cap comes with a spark arrestor screen and has removable screws for easy cleaning.

Why is there a 2" gap when you put the 12" diameter cap on a 6" triple wall pipe who's outside diameter is 10" .....shouldn't the caps outside diameter be 10" also to fit snuggly?
Asked by: PuddinTane
As long as the inside diameter (ID) of the existing pipe accepts the outside diameter (OD) of the cap, you are ok. There is an outer flange and cap that makes up the rest of the unit. That is for ventilation and cooling. You should get the new unit to fit in at least 2”.

my DuraVent chimney cap is clogged at the screen, can it be removed ? also, what size screws are holding it in place? so i can save a trip from up the ladder.
Asked by: duff
It best to replace the cap because of the work to remove, clean, and replace the cap. Screws are not necessary because of the snap on fit. It can be cleaned by gently shaking.

i'm having clogging problems at the spark arrestor screen, should i cut the screen open or remove the screen completly? i've only burnt 2.5-3 cords, can anyone recommend a replacment cap? thanx for your answer.
Asked by: duff
I take mine down and clean it. I burn two to 3 cords a year, so I do this once a year. I just bought another cap, so I can take a clean one up and bring the dirty one down to clean it.

DuraPlus 6 in. Round Chimney Cap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not up to my expectations I replaced a 8 inch double wall chimney with a 6 inch triple wall Duravent chimney and I bought this chimney cap to top off the chimney . After about 15 - 20 days I had to climb up on the roof take the cap off and scrape and scrub to get the pitch and creosote buildup off the cap . After re-installing the cap I burned my wood stove with the damper almost wide open and a few weeks later it's plugging up again . I am very disappointed with the performance of this cap my last cap on the double wall chimney only had to be cleaned once a burning season . I believe there must be a design flaw with this particular cap , maybe there should be more air gap between the end of the pipe and the top plate or maybe bigger screen holes in the spark arrestor . It's not normal to have to clean a cap this often . Don't waste your money on this cap . I really hope the triple wall chimney from Duravent performs better than their chimney cap does . I ordered a different cap and plan to return this one for a refund .
