Commercial Oil Boilers – 69 kW to 1,550 kW
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 central heating boilers to the environment at high temperature. Technology answers this problem, through the condensation of the flue gases, 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 in a significant reduction of oil heating fuel consumption and thus fuel bills as well as emissions to the environment, with this efficient oil boiler range.
Conventional oil fired boilers, may have an efficiency between 65% and 93%. With modern condensing technology, we can achieve up to 102% efficiency for the combustion of oil heating. 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 are oil fired must be high-efficiency condensing boilers unless there are exceptional circumstances.
These condensing oil boilers must be fuelled by either gas oil, which is known by a variety of names such as 35 second burning oil, Class A2 or Class D, or to standard EN590. or the new “drop-in replacement oils,” which are hydrotreated vegetable oil and thus designated “HVO”
HVO fuel oil , a 100 percent renewable diesel or biofuel, is essential for the UK to reach its net zero carbon goal.
HVO fuel is ecological and biodegradable because it is created entirely from renewable raw resources. It drastically lowers NOx, PM, and CO emissions while removing up to 90% of net CO2 emissions.
HVO, a fuel that belongs to the paraffinic family, is almost chemically identical to conventional diesel, making it a drop-in replacement for red and white diesel (i.e., gas oil) that can cut net CO2 emissions by up to 90%. (Source Wikipedia)
They cannot be powered by kerosene, also known as 28 second heating oil or just kero. This oil will not achieve the emissions required by the regulations in force.
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 bills. It is important to know that to get your oil commercial 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 .An efficient oil boiler will guarantee that your heating costs are minimal while reducing your carbon footprint.
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 fired boiler this would be deemed to be a domestic oil fired boiler, but if you had 2 x 45 kW oil fired boilers connected to the same heating system, then this would be classified as a commercial boiler installation because the total net input is greater than 70 kW ( i.e. 2 x 45 kW boilers = 90 kW in total )

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 fired 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 sulphur content

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 from this efficient oil boiler.
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. The hot water tube bundle of the heat exchanger is slightly inclined towards the smoke chamber in order:
– to let the condensate to be collected from the heat exchanger
– to avoid the acidic wet deposits remaining in the pipes of the heat exchanger
– to clean, thanks to gravity, the heat exchanger 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 output range the 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 output range of the oil fired boilers. The chimney must be calculated so that no positive pressure is detected at its base.
– Robust & Quality construction.
– Energy savings.
– Friendly to the environment
