OHC95 013014-1 smallCondensing Oil-Furnace – Thermo Pride
Thermo Products has developed a 95% AFUE oil condensing furnace that is Energy Star qualified and can match the AFUE ratings of gas furnaces.The OHC95 has a firing rate of 75,000 Btuh with up to 4 tons of A/C capacity.  This furnace uses industry standard components such as the Riello BF3 Burner. Standard ECM blower motor offers additional energy savings.


Condensing Oil Fired Warm Air Furnace – Kerr/Granbykerr-parad The general design concept relies on a high boy design with the primary heat exchanger above the secondary heat exchanger. An electronically commutated motor (ECM) will be used for the blower.



2-Stage Oil Burner & Modulating Oil Burner for the Wall Hung Marketplace – heat-wiseHeat Wise The burner housing for both residential two stage and modulating burner is the LW-80 chassis. This burner is currently manufactured by Heat Wise as a low power burner, consuming only 80 watts of running power. Heat Wise is nearly finished with design configurations and is testing different head/ tube combinations. Once the design is complete, prototype building and testing will begin in quick order.


High Efficiency Combo Heat & Hot Water System- Energy Kinetics
This is a combined heat and hot water condensing oil boiler application that has progressed with new spiral stainless steel secondary condensing unit. Energy Kinetics is evaluating burner applications from Beckett, Carlin, Riello, and Heatwise and believes they are closing in on a design choice. The aim is for lower CO2 levels that reduce the condensate potential and running without a trace to 14% C02- with the goal of sustained operation at 13.5%



Space Saving 20 gallon water heater – Bock Bock has had a very positive response to the 20 gallon Space SavrTM unit which serves to meet a wide range of niche situations where a small, responsive capacity has made the unit commercially available.


Two stage Oil Fired furnace – Thermo Products
Fuel savings by running on low-fire most of the time, but on extremely cold days the burner will run on high-fire automatically. The ECM blowerprovides additional electrical efficiency. Technician merely moves a pin and adjusts it for low fire as with a traditional burner, then moves the pin again and sets it up for high fire. Lastly, move the pin to the third setting to run. The burner will then switch from low to high fire automatically as needed. The burner is also mounted on a double hinge making it easy to service as needed. Up to 87.3% AFUE



Outdoor Combined Heating and cooling Thermo Products The OPD Thermopack™ combination heating and air conditioning unit is engineered to provide year-round comfort for your customer’s home. This high-efficiency system starts paying for itself with easy outdoor installation, an energy-saving ECM blower motor, 13-14 SEER air conditioning and significant fuel savings over older heating and air conditioning units. Since all mechanical functions and the combustion process are outdoors, its operation is remarkably quiet.


Oil Condensing Boiler – Peerless Boiler/PB Heat The Pinnacle Oil boiler is a direct vent, sealed combustion boiler and is 93%+ PB-Pinefficient*, earning it the ENERGY STAR® rating. The boiler is equipped with a Beckett AFG burner fueled with standard commercial grade #2 fuel oil and operates at two firing rates with inputs of 70,000 and 84,000 BTU/HR respectively. The ASME-rated heat exchanger is constructed with high alloy stainless steel that assures the boiler’s durability and protects it from corrosion.The Pinnacle Oil boiler offers many control features including multiple temperature set points for both heating and domestic hot water and, with the addition of an outdoor sensor the boiler is fully capable of outdoor reset operation. Standard equipment includes an LCD display for viewing test and diagnostic functions, along with a pressure/temperature gauge and 30 PSI safety relief valve. The Pinnacle Oil boiler is certified for ‘zero clearance to combustibles’ and, with its slim, space saving design and low vent outlet is easy to install in virtually any application. A reversible swing door and top access to burner and internal components allows for quick and easy service and maintenance. An insulated acoustic shroud and boiler jacket promotes quiet operation and reduces heat loss.   adams
