Default 3 inch stove pipe

Does any one know of a wood stove that hooks up to a 3 inch pipe ?

I'm not aware of anything however perhaps there is a forced draft that could be integrated. I just don't see having enough normal draft to be practical for a 3" flue. Most are at least 6" and go upwards to 10".

I think some smaller camping wood stoves might use smaller flues.

These guys go down to 4 inch

These guys use 3 inch for their small stove

Assuming the fuel type and natural draft velocity is similar in two stoves, a 3 inch flue should be able to support roughly 25% the combustion rate and BTU output of a 6 inch flue. For something like a small camp, or camper, or tent, or ice shack, or a boat; I can see a 3 inch flue working very well. I could also see using one in a large home, not for heating the whole house just for space heating and cooking and so forth, but there could be issues if you had to get such a stove approved.

typically 3" vent pipe is only double walled and not rated for a wood stove.

Default 3" Stove pipe

Probably too late but I just bought a Antique French wood burning stove that requires a 3" stove pipe. The stove is from the 20's. It's porcelain over cast iron. It's very cool. Anyway. Yes you can get one but the Friench stoves are rare here in the US. I got lucky finding this one. So now I'm looking for a 3" stove pipe. It's a smaller stove meant for a small space. Anybody know where I can find one? Maybe you have one you want to get rid of? I'm getting the firebox rebuilt though so I might get it rebuilt to a 4" pipe. Anyone have any advice?

Our pellet stove has a 3" vent pipe. Not sure about a wood stove. Would think that would need to be larger.

Super! Yes that is what I was looking for. I'm building a tiny house that is the size of a sailboat inside so that three inch pipe you found is going to be perfect.
