Blue-Tech uses the very latest Blue Flame technology and is currently the most energy-efficient domestic oil boiler in Europe. The Blue Flame technology ensures a cleaner soot free flame through secondary burn of combustion air which also reduces pollution to the lowest possible level, achieving an impressive level of NOx emissions of only 65mg/kW hour. The Blue-tech oil boilers are built with the installer in mind: with 4 tappings making installation easier, tidier and more efficient, and front access to simplify servicing and save time. Blue-Tech is available in three models, Utility, Boilerhouse and External with two fixed outputs, 20kW and 26kW. The new boiler uses the German MHG burner with built-in fault diagnostics that has been on the market since 1977, using technology derived from aviation and aerospace engineering; with its blue flame it has launched a new age in heating technology. The burner’s perfectly functioning system of converting oil into gas was the very first of its kind to provide absolutely soot-free, total combustion.
