Pipe Length Using the SWG Power Vent

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I'm look at purchasing a LL Pioneer and venting using the power vent. I would be installing this in my finished basement. The question I have is, can I make a horizontal run of about 8 ft using the power vent. It would give me a total pipe length of about 12 ft. (4 +/- ft vertical and 8 ft horizontal). Also, I'd be going through an inside wall, through about 6 ft. wide utility closet, then out through concrete block wall. Will the SWG work for this?

Don't forget about the elbows. Each elbow is like adding about 5ft of pipe.
Take Care and God Bless
