What is a Boiler Flue and How Do They Work? | Ideal Heating

With condensing boilers the flue is effectively part of the heating system as it is the heat from the burned gases that starts warming the returning water from the system. While the incoming water is getting warmer the hot combustion gases are losing some of their heat energy to it which is how the water vapour in the flue gases might even turn back into liquid water hence the name condensing boilers.

Commercial boiler flue systems - Hamworthy Heating

When changing commercial boilers from atmospheric boilers to condensing boilers the existing flues on this type of system are not able to deal with the modern pressurised and wet system where condensate will form. Modern condensing boilers generate condensate from the flue gases at a rate of around 13 litres per hour for a 100kW boiler ...

What is a Boiler Flue and How Do They Work? | Ideal Heating

The flue is simply a piece of pipework or duct that moves gases and hot air from the combustion chamber of the boiler to outside. With condensing boilers the flue is effectively part of the heating system as it is the heat from the burned gases that starts warming the returning water from the system.

Heat Exchanger & Chimney Flue Damage From Heating ...

Condensing furnaces (warm air heat) or condensing boilers (hot water heat) use stainless-steel heat exchangers plastic flue vent piping and other system components that resist corrosion. Watch out : if plastic vent piping for high efficiency heating
