The B Series waste oil heater/boiler design is tried and true. The design has been in operation for over 25 years with a record of unexcelled performance. Even today, our B Series design is still the most state-of-the-art waste oil heater/boiler design on the market.
The stack temperature is an indicator of how completely heat is being extracted from the exhaust. The Alternate Heating Systems Inc. B Series operates with one of the coolest stack temperatures of any waste oil heater/boiler on the market (we believe that it is actually the coolest). Because of the nature of the fuel, the stack temperature will vary. The low stack temperatures of our boilers are almost unheard of on the market.
The combustion of the fuel is so thorough that little fly ash is produced. But the fly ash that is produced is put to good use - the system is designed so that the fly ash scours the inside of the swirl chamber, preventing buildup that can dramatically lower combustion efficiency. After scouring the swirl chamber, the fly ash that remains from the combustion process is deposited in an ash pan that can be easily removed.
