Duravent Anchor Plate - Gasket required? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Duravent Anchor Plate - Gasket required?

    I completed the flue on my oven today, and need some guidance on how to install the Duravent Anchor plate.

    I have the plate mounted on a flat 12 x 12 square of firebrick splits with a (roughly) round 8" cutout for the chimney. The fit is pretty good.

    I was planning to screw the plate to the firebrick using Tap-cons. I couldn't find stainless so am going with the blue ones.

    But do I need a gasket, or any sort of caulk under the anchor plate? Or is it ok to screw it straight to the brick?

    I used the Selkirk SuperPro pipe and mounting plate. They recommend putting a 1/2" bed of refractory mortar under the plate (I used Heatstop 50); then you torque the fasteners until you get a small amount of squeeze-out, so you know there aren't any gaps. I left the raised bead of squeezed-out mortar in place around the plate as extra protection against leaks.

      I used the Duravent plate and screwed it with tapcons,using a bead of Heastop 50 as the gasget in between.

        Two votes for mortar. thanks guys.

        In the interim I dug out the (rather generic) install instructions from Duravent, and they suggest high heat caulk. I think that would probably not last given the heat from a WFO. But I do have refractory caulk on order to use for my heat break and may try that. I'll see what the texture looks like and go with either that or the mortar.

        To be honest, afte getting this far with the oven, I am really tired of mortar
