Hounsfield Boilers introduces new state of the art oil burner to their Tuscan range of domestic oil-fired boilers.

The new burner follows many months of research and development with Giuliano Corticini’s team at Elco, part of the Ariston Thermo Group, together they’ve created one of the most advanced and efficient burners on the market, the Hounsfield Burner by Elco.

Managing Director, Hounsfield Boilers, Andrew Hounsfield, explains: “We’re passionate about staying at the forefront of technology; the new burner has been manufactured to our very exacting specifications and has undergone extensive testing to ensure the optimum burner set-up. We never rest on our laurels and although our range of boilers receives much praise, we’re dedicated to constantly improving our boilers functionality and performance, as well as ensuring their ability to adapt to HVO fuels.”

The new burner is extremely easy for engineers to service and also benefits from a consumer friendly-design. The team at Elco have developed with state of the art technology a combustion head with outstanding performance that minimises environmental impact and significantly reduces Nitrogen Oxide levels to below 120mg per kilo watt-hour, which complies with the Energy-related Products Directive (ErP) combined with low electrical consumption. The burner boasts a very powerful but controlled ventilation system that ensures reliable operation, during windy conditions or tall conventional open chimney systems. Combustion air adjustment is made easy with a graduation of 1 for 14kw up to 6 for 30kw, and ceramic electrodes which do not break under pressure. The burner has also been designed with homeowners in mind, a rubber cover on the pump’s pressure adjustment screw embossed “pump adjustment” prevents users, after they’ve run out of oil, inadvertently adjusting the pump pressure instead of the vent port to bleed air from the fuel supply line. The burner can also be adapted for HVO fuel, making a Hounsfield boiler the ideal long-term investment for off-grid property owners.

The new state of the art oil burner will be fitted to all of Hounsfield’s Tuscan oil-fired boiler range, including condensing and non-condensing kitchen boilers, external floor standing oil boiler and wall hung internal and external boilers.
Hounsfield Boilers was set up in 2008 by Andrew Hounsfield after 30 years in the boiler industry. Andrew had worked for some of the biggest UK boiler companies and noticed that there was no product on the market that could offer high quality, long-lasting components at an affordable price. With his engineering background he designed a revolutionary oil-fired boiler that is easy to install and has high performance with a host of features not found on any other boiler in the marketplace. Hounsfield Boilers recently received a ‘Highly Commended’ for Best Domestic HVAC Product at the H&V News awards.

Hounsfield Boilers can be ordered via merchants or direct from the company.
