The 3-4 inch pipe motors have a fixed speed at 50 CFM and are hardwired or you can insert (hardwire) a plug pigtail in them. For 5-8 inch pipe motors in solid fuel (pellets, wood logs, coal), you can adjust the variable speed control kob on the electrical box to achieve the maximum effectiveness of your stove. For oil and gas fired systems, the 5-8 inch Pipe Motors will be hardwired at a fixed speed. The variable speed on your 5-8 inch Pipe Motors for solid fuels can be adjusted from 30 to 350 CFM of Flue gases, and if your stove is power vented, then you can adjust the speed of the Draft Inducer to match the speed of your stove flue fan. It takes up to 1 amp at 110VAC and is hardwired into your electrical general circut or into your stove turn-on circut. Burn ALL your wood, even moist or hard-to-burn types of wood, and reduce it to small ash residual in most cases. It can be used for any kind of stove such as wood, oil, coal, or even pellet stoves such as wood pellets or corn. Pipe sizes range from 3 to 8 inches and you cut an elongated square hole in the pipe and strap it onto the pipe together with high temperature silicone caulk. When mounted on the pipe, the air paddle blades or vanes extend into the pipe about 2 inches. Double-walled pipe must have the air gap filled around the hole insert with fiberglass-mesh rope gasket (used for doors). Specify your pipe size when ordering.
When ordering specify (1) your pipe size; (2) type of fuel e.g. pellets, wood logs, coal, oil, gas; (3) BTU Output (estimate) of your stove, insert, or furnace; Color=red>. Unless otherwise stated and requested , the 5-8 inch pipe motors for solid fuels will have a variable control adjustment knob and the oil/gas fuels will have hard-wired at a fixed speed either 50 CFM or 75 CFM.. If ordering 5-8 inch size fan be sure to specify size, fuel, and BTU output (estimate). The 3-4 inch pipe motors do not come with an adjustable speed control knob but are instead at a fixed speed of 50 CFM and are hardwired or you can buy a pigtail cord outlet for it for $15.00 plus $7.50 shipping. The pigtail corded outlet is also hardwired into the unit.
OIL and GAS FIRED SYSTEMS: National and local building codes are now requiring a FAN PROVING SWITCHColor=green> be installed with the Draft Inducer Motor on gas and oil-fired stoves and furnaces. Not applicable for coal, wood-log stoves, optional for wood-pellet stoves. If the draft inducer motor fails or there is a blockage in the chimney, the vacuum inside the inducer housing is lost, thereby opening the circut and shutting off the gas or oil-fired burners. Contact your local municipal code department, local HVAC suppliers, or you can call us to see what we are recommending. If required add $150 or call for a special Ebay buy-it-now listing to avoid circumventing of Ebay fees.

Fiberglass-Mesh Rope is the best alternative. We sell both of them and see them in our Ebay store ...
BAROMETRIC DRAFT REGULATOR
Wood, Coal, and Oil burning stoves that use a 6 to 8 inch flue exhaust pipe may wish to use a Barometric Draft Regulator either with, without, or instead of a Draft Fan Inducer. Ask about an ADAPTOR that can be made for 3 and 4 inch corn and wood pellet stoves. For proper operation and efficient fuel consumption, wood, coal, and oil fired furnaces must have a constant draft. A Barometric Draft Regulator will maintain consistent draft by counteracting the negative forces caused by changes in temperature, barometric pressure, and effects of the wind. The way it works: a cover damper plate will crack open and allow room air to come into the flue pipe system to balance out the air pressure (or vacuum). Disadvantage is it uses fresh air or heated air in the room and the room has to have availble air to feed it. It is used in commercial buildings or breezy residential houses or apartments. Tight buildings will probably need a Fresh Air Kit to supply air. Extra Cost is $145.00.
The WARRANTY on this unit is 1 YEAR or a 12 month limited warranty.
