What is it and how to replace it?

I had to remove my fireplace and chimney to do some major repairs. Now, I'm getting back to puttting it all back in and I'm stuck. When we removed the chimney (triple wall construction, this is the middle wall) we took out this ring:

We had to cut the ring off and now that we're about to put the chimney back, I cannot find the ring anywhere. I'm thinking I could use some high temp aluminum tape all around it, even use the tape to re-position the ring. My thoughts being that we just need to get the pieces together and make them sealed so that no smoke gets out, as well as keeping the entire thing straight.

Anyone with any experience in this?

Have you tried building supply houses? I remember seeing one installed on the 17th floor of a building, in Manhattan after I reported a problem with the stack.

Is that just a ring or is it an adapter fitting ?

Simpson Dura-Vent uses an adapter that looks like that ring.

PJMax - I'm not sure what it is. I'm sorry, I just don't know how to describe it, though I could post a picture of the old ring if it would help.

AFAIK, the ring helps keep the seam together.

As far as I can tell, it is there to let to unlike edges meet and stay together.

@PJMax: yes, I've seen the DuraVent adapter and it looks like it might work, but I cannot find one in a 10" size.

Ok, so that brings me to 'how to fix this"

A) I could get two of the 6" Duravent adapters and use Aluminut High Temp Tape to afix them to the chimney.

b) I could also use just a couple of layers of tape on the seam by itself, but I'm concerned about any code I may be missing on either of the ideas.

Since it is the center wall of a 3 wall system, I'm thinking I could use the metal tape on the chimney and it should do the trick.

Anyone out there with any experience in this?

here are some close up pics of the ring itself

I personally would not trust aluminum tape to hold a stove pipe together.......especially if it was to be hidden inside a wall. Is this a wood burning system? What type of fuel?
