HTR versions are eligible for RHI on logs and cereal straw.
FARM2000 High Temperature (HT) boilers are used for heating, hot water and hot air systems by efficient and controlled combustion of biomass.
Biomass contain gases which represent half of the calorific value, and which can only be burned and release their energy at high temperatures.
The HT boilers therefore have secondary air pre-heating and 2-stage fan operation to ensure that upward gasification and clean combustion at high temperature is achieved. Low temperature combustion produces smoke, tar and increased fuel use.
The high temperature waste gases pass through a multi-tube heat exchange system, transferring heat to the water before exhausting to the chimney.
The entire combustion process is thermostatically and timer controlled. ‘HT’ Boilers are unique in their simple operation and large loading capacities. Depending on boiler size,
refuelling is generally only required 1-2 times per day.
The FARM2000 ECONOMY models are based on the traditional single-pass boiler, but are fitted with a fan and combustion plate to provide:
These boilers are ideally suited to smaller heating systems where fuel consumption is not too critical. The fan and combustion plate improve the efficiency over the original simple single-pass design, but the boiler can also be supplied with thermostatically operated air inlets, instead of a fan.
An Economy Boiler will operate with a higher flue temperature and use on average 30-35% more fuel than the equivalent sized HT boiler.
Most BBR versions are eligible for RHI on logs and cereal straw.
FARM2000 Big Bale (BB) boilers are of broadly similar design to the HT range, with large combustion chambers and multi-tube heat exchangers for optimum efficiency.
‘BB’ Boilers must be fitted to accumulator systems for safe and efficient operation.
The large fully hinging door allows for easy and convenient loading by tractor, and each boiler is supplied with an ash scoop which is tractor mounted, making ash removal a simple operation.
