Biomass boilers are products that are specifically designed to burn solid biomass fuels in order to heat water. They are used to heat water for process or space heating.
Gas-fired condensing water heaters are used to provide hot water for domestic purposes or process heating, and offer an energy efficient method of generating hot water. Gas-fired condensing water heaters are specifically designed to continuously provide hot water either by the direct heating of water as it passes through the product, or the heating of water contained in an integral storage vessel.
Hot water boilers are used to produce hot water for space heating, process heating and domestic uses. They are available in a wide range of different designs and efficiencies. These products heat water by means of a heat exchanger that transfers heat from combustion into the water as it passes through the product.
Steam boilers are products that are specifically designed to convert water into pressurised steam by means of a burner that converts fuel into heat and a heat exchanger that transfers the heat into the water as it passes through the product. Steam boilers are used to produce steam for process heating, space heating and water heating. They consist of a burner, a pressure vessel containing a heat exchanger, and associated burner control systems and boiler control equipment.
