What is AL29-4C alloy in a stainless venting pipe?
"AL" stands for Allegheny Ludlum a unique patented alloy. This alloy was developed to prevent corrosion and breakdown in high efficient gas, oil, and corn burning chimney appliances such as furnaces and boilers. AL29-4C flexible venting pipes offer extreme resistance to chloride pitting, sulfuric acid, crevice corrosion, chloride stress-corrosion cracking and general corrosion.
When should I use an AL29-4C Stainless Steel Flex Vent Pipe?
When there are heating appliances that are rated at 90% efficiency or higher, it is a good idea to use AL29-4C. This flue liner provides better corrosion resistance to condensed flue acids that are formed using this type of appliance.
These venting pipe kits are intended for use with HIGH EFFICIENCY GAS, OIL, and CORN burning appliances. The flue gases from these appliances are cooler and create exceptionally high amounts of moisture which in turn promotes formation of an especially corrosive acid.
Note: AL29-4C is the best option when burning corn. Pesticides used to grow corn have been proven to produce gases that deteriorate all types of liners. However this flue liner will last 7 to 10 years when corn is the fuel source. We offer no warranty on any of our chimney liners when corn is used in the flue.
