A Masonary Chimney With Clay Flue Lining For a Lifetime Of Safety and Service. Clay Flue Lining Institute.

Abstract: A chimney's main function is to allow products of combustion to escape and to provide draft. The clay flue lining prevents the products of combustion from penetrating the brick chimney. Clay flue lining is unaffected by chemicals, which makes it the best choice for chimney lining. It also provides a more uniform draft. This article lists the specifications for a masonry chimney with a clay flue lining. A diagram is included.

The article also discusses the chimney cap, clean out chamber, and chimney foundation. A masonry chimney should have a cap for protection. A clean out chamber is also needed to provide easy access for cleaning the chimney, which should occur often. The chimney foundation should be constructed of 3000 PSI concrete and designed to support the specific load of the chimney.
