Firebird Heating Solutions has developed and launched the UK’s first oil fired condensing boiler with blue flame technology for the domestic heating market.  Getting ahead of forthcoming NOx emission target regulations, Firebird says it has produced the most energy efficient domestic oil fired boiler in Europe.

The Firebird Enviromax Blue Supreme meets the exacting standards of the Eco Design Directive in higher efficiencies and low NOx emissions.  The new European standard is currently anticipated to set maximum NOx levels at 120mg/kW hour when it comes into effect. This compares with Firebird’s field test results with the Enviromax Blue Supreme achieving a level of 65mg/kW hour.

SAP 2009 annual efficiency ratings of 93.4% have been achieved by designing in a patented high efficiency heat recovery unit in conjunction with the boiler secondary heat exchanger that pre-warms the air required for combustion.

The boiler is available in three models, kitchen, boilerhouse and external heatpac with two fixed outputs – 20 and 26kW.

Firebird is currently running a series of training courses to familiarise installers and service engineers with the commissioning and set up of the blue flame burner in preparation for  product availability later this month. Oil Installer attended one of the Firebird events at the beginning of September and a full report will appear in the Winter issue of the magazine.
