    Steam Stack insulation and flashing material for through wall venting

    Hi all, I am looking to do a 90 degree off the top of our boil kettle and vent directly out the side of our building. Does anyone have any recommendations on insulation material to wrap the kettle with in the wall and also any recommendations on flashing on the inside and outside?

    You do not need to insulate a kettle vent, and it is best run with single wall SS pipe if you want to keep things simple an affordable.
    You use a " thimble " for the wall breaching for the pipe size you are working with. There is a guy on the forum named James Gimurtu if I got the spelling right who can sell you the pipe and fittings. Some people go with welded SS which more rugged, more fancy and more expensive. A horizontal termination would not be my preferred way to go, and some people run forced fan on the stack outlet depending on the total equation of the install.
