With significant regulatory changes relating to oil-fired burners on the way, Riello is encouraging installers to take advantage of available training opportunities to ensure they are up to speed with the latest requirements.
The company’s sales & marketing director Paul Sharp said: “A sustained drive to reduce NOx emissions, which is likely to continue post-Brexit, is leading to major re-development of oil-fired burner designs. As manufacturers we have a responsibility to ensure our products are compliant and also to assist installers through both training and product design.”
From September 2018 NOx emissions from oil boilers should not exceed 120 mg/kWh, with further reductions expected from 2022. Meeting these requirements will require blue flame burners with re-designed combustion heads, combined with the latest digital control technology.
