In designing the chimney, the first necessity is to know the capacity for which this chimney is required and whether it be for stills, furnaces, smelting purposes or boilers. If the chimney is to be used in connection with stills, open-hearth furnaces or such high temperature purposes, it is desirable to line the chimney to the top with a good grade of fire-brick, allowing an air space between the inner fire-brick wall and the outer shaft of the chimney, so that the chimney may vibrate due to varying wind-loads and the fire-brick lining expand and contract without doing damage to either.
