In the year 2000, Atlantic Boilers introduced the B100 bio-fuel R-Series super-condensing boilers in which condensing occurs throughout the year regardless of heating system temperature and at even higher efficiencies on maximum mid-winter lead. The R Series is now extended to the TR, TRP and Euromax Series covering 60kW up to 5000kW and they can burn bio-fuel, natural gas, diesel oil, kerosene and LPG. From 2005 the Atlantic Boiler range includes robust electric boilers from 1kW to 1000kW with gross efficiency in excess of 99%GCV.
The R Series year-round maximum condensing boiler has two distinct heat exchangers, the first of quality steel design and the second of high-grade plastic design. The flue gases leave the first heat exchanger at temperatures below 90°C, and are then extracted from the second condensing heat exchanger at temperatures below 50°C. For combustion air entry temperatures below 30°C, efficiencies are obtained which are in excess of 92% GCV throughout the heating season. These conditions apply throughout the year in the UK.
The report explains the processes and technology involved in this relatively new industry which provides a sustainable alternative to traditional fossil fuels and bio-mass.
We explain how bio-diesel is used in a typical commercial condensing bio-diesel boiler including installation, pipework arrangements and flue requirements.
This helpful document also comes with a guide to the selection of boilerplant and a typical cost analysis compared to bio-mass.
