A complete line of Econoburn™ wood gasification boilers designed to meet the heating and hot water needs of both residential and commercial customers has been unveiled by Dunkirk, NY-headquartered Alternative Fuel Boilers, LLC.
"As heating costs continue to rise, the demand for wood gasification boilers continues to grow," said company president William Raines. "Wood is a renewable resource and the gasification process is both environmentally friendly and energy efficient. Those benefits are very attractive to the many home and business owners considering the use of wood as fuel for heating or hot water"
Traditional wood furnaces, Raines noted, lose a significant amount of heat up the chimney which also results in the release of air polluting greenhouse gases. The gasification process, he explained, captures then reignites flue gases in the combustion chamber resulting in a heating efficiency nearing 90 percent. And with virtually no exhaust gases, the high-tech boilers help ease the burden on the environment.
Econoburn™ units range in size from 150,000 to 1 million BTUs for use as either a primary heat source or to supplement one that already exists. The boilers are adaptable to both hot water and forced air heating systems, and the company offers accessory products for swimming pools and hot tubs along with heat exchanger fans for industrial buildings.
The company, www.alternativefuelboilers.com, offers pre-purchase consultations for customers on appropriate boiler sizing, systems integration, accessory applications and any other specialized design criteria.
Raines said the Econoburn™ brand offers several benefits to customers considering a wood gasification boiler:
Heavy gauge, ¾" thick steel plate construction, primarily double-welded for strength, durability and temperature and corrosion resistance.
A custom designed, high-technology refractory and large water jacket for increased hot water volume and output.
High-quality "Made in America" manufacturing by Alternative Fuel Boilers’ corporate parent, Dunkirk Metal Products, Inc., an ISO 9001-2000 certified metal fabricating company with 50 years of industry experience.
"Dunkirk Metal Products has been a successful metal products manufacturer since 1946. The design and production of these boilers reflects the depth of our experience and breadth of our capabilities," Raines said. "We look forward to having many, many satisfied Econoburn™ customers in the months and years ahead.
