Europe's Most Efficient Oil-Fired Boiler

Europe's Most Efficient Oil-Fired Boiler

With a Seasonal Efficiency of 97.4%* the Blue Supreme range from Firebird is the most efficient domestic oil-fired boiler in Europe. Incorporating cutting-edge German blue flame burner technology, models are available for internal, external and boilerhouse applications. The outstanding efficiency is achieved by utilising a patented Heat Recovery System in conjunction with the boilers' third heat exchanger. This pre-warms the air required for combustion, allowing more energy to be extracted from the combustion gases.

Pioneers of Blue Flame Technology

Pioneers of Blue Flame Technology

A common assumption is that Blue Flame technology has only been developed in response to pending changes in legislation, when in fact Firebird have worked in partnership with German manufacturer MHG Heiztechnik GmbH for many years. Together, they developed the first mainstream Blue Flame oil-fired condensing boiler in the UK (the Blue Supreme Range), which has been available for over three years.

The principle of Blue Flame technology is simple; heating oil is converted to a gas at high pressure, through a high tolerance nozzle (using the thermodynamic premixing principle). This is then premixed with the air required for combustion, via a special mixing system diffuser. The perfectly homogenised air/ fuel mixture is directed into the centre of the intended burning zone, prior to ignition and the flame produced is channelled down the burner tube to form an intense, elongated flame. A percentage of the hot combustion gasses produced are then re-circulated back through slots in the burner head, where a degree of integral reburning takes place. The intensity of the flame, and the recirculation process, burns off high concentrations of NOx that are usually generated in the combustion process.

Seasonal Efficiency Ratings & ErP Directive

Seasonal Efficiency Ratings & ErP Directive

In the UK SEDBUK, which stands for Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers, is a system used to classify and compare boilers on how efficient they are at converting fuel into heat. The patented condensing heat exchanger, which forms an integral part of a Firebird boiler shell, enables more heat to be captured and reused, resulting in a higher seasonal efficiency figure.

The ErP (Energy Related Products) Directive is a European regulation that came into force in 2015. Through the use of Energy Labels, it is designed to make homeowners aware of the efficiency of heating and hot water systems. All boilers in the Firebird product range achieve an ErP A Rating as they offer outstanding seasonal efficiency ratings, well in excess of 90%.*
