Condensing Oil Boiler – Commercial Oil Boiler – 15 kW to 1,500 kW
From – 15 kW to 68 kW Output ( For the Larger Commercial Oil Boilers 69 kW to 1,500 kW scroll to the bottom of the web page for the information)
Condensing oil boiler – With conventional oil boilers, waste energy, as a large portion of the thermal energy produced by the combustion, is thrown away, with the flue gas, which exits the boiler to the environment at high temperature. Technology answers to this problem, through the condensation of the flue gas, by reducing the temperature of the flue gas until the condensation point. With this process, it is possible to exploit the flue gas latent heat, which is transferred to the water of the heating system. This way, we exploit the full potential of the fuel resulting to a significant reduction of fuel consumption and emissions to the environment.
A conventional oil boiler, may have an efficiency between 65% and 93%. With modern condensing technology,we may achieve up to 102% efficiency for the combustion of oil. This improvement of efficiency and the consequent reduction of fuel consumption leads to savings to your heating bill and protection of the environment in which we live in.This range of condensing oil boilers / Commercial oil boilers are produced according to the new directives of the European Union for energy products, in which very strict limits have been set, regarding efficiency and fuel consumption.Since April 2007 , the regulations state that all new central heating boilers that were oil fired must be high-efficiency condensing boilers unless there are exceptional circumstances.
High efficiency Condensing Oil Boiler
Modern condensing oil boilers are designed to use virtually all of the energy content of the oil – often referred to as the higher heating value. Compared to standard boiler technology, oil condensing boilers also recover the heat of condensation of the water vapour contained in the exhaust flue gas. Oil-fired condensing boiler technology therefore achieves the highest efficiency and very minimum emissions along with the lowest fuel consumption. It is important to know that to get your oil condensing boiler to work at its maximum efficiency, you need your return water temperature to be under 47C , which is the “dew point temperature” for heating oil .
Commercial Oil Boiler
Oil boilers ( which all now have to be condensing ) with an input of over 70 kW net for the installation are considered to be a commercial oil boiler. An example of this is if you had a 60 kW net oil boiler this would be deemed to be a domestic oil boiler, but if you had 2 x 45 kW oil boilers connected to the same heating system, then this would be classified as a commercial installation because the total net input is greater than 70 kW ( i.e 2 x 45 kW boilers = 90 kW in total )

Blue Flame Low NOx Oil Burner Technology – Mandatory from 1st January 2018 on Condensing Oil Boilers
What is NOx ?
NOx is the term used to describe Nitrous oxide which is released during normal combustion.When combined with water and released into the atmosphere it produces acid rain, and results in significant long term damage to any structure that is repeatedly exposed to it.Besides being a single toxin, NOx combines with other substances and creates smog when it is exposed to sunlight. This creates a major health hazard for people that live in affected areas. NOx penetrates into the lung tissue and can cause permanent damage to lung tissue. Children, the elderly, people with asthma and other breathing difficulties, and people that work outside are especially susceptible to the negative health effects of NOx. The way to reduce that health risk is for companies to employ NOx reduction measures.
The new Low NOx Oil Burner differs to the older type Oil burner, with regards to the following points:
- New combustion head design
- New air disperser design
- New way of mixing air and fuel (turbulation)
- Oil pre-heating for better fuel spraying
- Ultra-violet photo-resistance (New!)
- New fan for combustion air supply
It’s use, will be obligatory in the European Union from 1st January 2018! *The BLUE-FLAME burners, require heating oil with low sulfur content
Condensing oil Boiler Heat Exchanger
Flexiheat supply a comprehensive range of Sedbuk A rated high efficiency oil boilers for commercial and industrial heating applications. Culminating from years of experience, on going development and our wealth of technical knowledge the specially developed “Y” section heat exchangers. which are fitted to all Flexiheat oil condensing boilers providing much improved performance and operating efficiency.
The unique shape allows us to start the transfer of heat to water, in the bottom chamber, before it reaches the baffles, as well as cleaner combustion, now that the baffles no longer have to be so tight in the exchanger to meet efficiency.
The unique “Y” section centrally located waterway design allows excellent heat transfer to take place,particularly in the lower combustion chamber. This greatly reduces the pressure build up normally associated with conventionally manufactured boiler types. The “Y” section design allows baffles to be a more open tolerance, providing for better overall running performance, smoother start ups and cleaner combustion. Baffles fitted to non central waterway heat exchangers, normally have to be extremely tight to attain required efficiencies, which can cause pressure build up and increase soot deposit in the boiler.This is one of the key benefits to our commercial oil condensing boiler range.
The additional surface heat transfer area created within the boiler by the “Y” section heat exchanger also allows Flexiheat to supply high KW output oil fired condensing boilers within typical domestic appliance size enclosures. Flexiheat UK is committed to offering the most technically advanced and extensive range of commercial oil fired boilers available.The condensing unit on our condensing oil fired boilers is made from 316 grade stainless steel. This high specification has been achieved through extensive research and testing to ensure our products achieve the highest quality.

Commercial Condensing Oil Boiler – Advantages
Stainless Steel Combustion Chamber- in stainless steel AISI 316L, entirely water cooled, above the tube bundle, so that the assembly could form a structure apt to favour the thermal exchange and the evacuation of the condensate.
Two Return Connections – allowing both high and low temperature heating circuits
Special “progressive” and Patented Smoke Pipes in stainless steel AISI 316L with, inside, 6 special sectorial pipes and turbulators in AISI 304, that guarantee a very high heat exchange and resistance to the acidic condensate.Tube bundle slightly inclined towards the smoke chamber in order:
– to let the condensate to be collected over there
– to avoid the acidic wet deposits remain in the pipes
– to clean, thanks to the gravity, the exchange surfaces
Central Heating Flow connection placed on the rear upper part and two return connections, for low and high temperature, in the lower part. For models 69 and 100 the Flow and Return connections are towards the back side; for models 250 to 1550 Flow and Return connections are towards the upper side (as shown in the picture)
The high temperature return connection is placed so that it doesn’t interfere with the low temperature return connection
The low temperature return connection is placed on the extension of the lower outer shell to that it can exploit at the maximum the heat recovery
These commercial oil boilers are equipped with a blind cylindrical furnace, in which the central flame of the burner is reversed peripherally towards the front. When the combustion gases have reached the front part, they are sent through the door into the tubes of the third pass to reach the rear flue gas chamber and then the chimney.
The combustion chamber is always pressurised while the burner is operating, within the power range of the boiler.The chimney must be calculated so that no positive pressure is detected at its base.
