Solid fuel boilers are currently coming to the fore, due to an unstable political and economic situation in Ukraine. Annual, and sometimes monthly rising gas prices cause increased interest in solid fuel boilers. By the term, solid fuel must be understood – coal (in any form, in addition to coal dust, which is burned in energy boilers), wood, chips, wood granules, briquettes, etc.D., In the Ukrainian market, you can find the designs of boilers working on each of these types of fuel. For example, solid fuel boilers Ukrtermo. So what should we decide when we are facing this choice? Which boiler is better?
It would seem a simple question, but finding an answer, unfortunately, is not so easy. In this article, we will try to reveal all the questions and explain them in such a way as to help everyone who faces such a problem. Let’s start with the criteria that, in my opinion, (this does not mean that they are the only true) to decide which source of heat must be purchased at your house. This article is limited to solid fuel boilers. Conditions that can affect your solution a lot.
Also, the boilers can also be divided based on materials from which the heat exchanger is made. They are steel and cast iron. The main advantage of cast -iron heat exchangers is their durability, but subject to strict compliance with the operating modes prescribed by the manufacturer. Otherwise, damage to the integrity of the cast -iron heat exchanger, due to non -normative maintenance and operation will be guaranteed. The advantage of steel heat exchangers is their comparative cheapness, light weight, and a higher efficiency, which is provided by the possibility of implementing modern solutions in boiler construction. Also, when choosing a solid fuel boiler, it is necessary to solve the issue of the main fuel, its solution is mainly the geographical location of the heating object and, accordingly, they will be the most common and affordable type of fuel in the region.
An important point of which one must not forget is the stability of power supply, since most modern boilers require connection to the mains, to ensure the operation of the fan, the command controller.
