Compatible with our camping stoves, the 60 mm diameter Spark Arrestor is available as a replacement if the Spark Arrestor that came standard with your stove becomes lost or damaged. The Spark Arrestor prevents sparks and embers from exiting the chimney pipe, a top cap keeps rain and snow out, and attachment points allow you to use guy lines to stabilize the flue in windy conditions.
When it comes to the different parts of a chimney, it can be easy to get confused. Especially if you do not understand exactly what each part does. Also, it can be difficult when a part seems to do the same function as another part. Then you realize it ends up being called another name. Learning what each individual part actually does makes it much easier to see the importance of each part. You can also see the functions that make parts different from each other. Many people tend to confuse chimney caps with spark arrestor. This is because they both sit on top of the chimney. However, not all chimney caps are equipped with the mesh metal siding that spark arrestor must have.
Spark arrestor is “any device which prevents the emission of flammable debris from combustion sources.” They are fitted to a chimney to keep sparks and embers from jumping out of the chimney. This is too keep them from combustible material on the ground to start a fire. Spark arrestor generally consist of layers of metal mesh. This mesh can catch embers, yet still allow gases and smoke to exit the chimney.
