Pellettop

proven classic pellet boiler

This pellet boiler is market proven since more than 8 years. The biomass boiler is easy to integrate into the heating system of the building. The construction of the boiler is simple and provides easy excess for customer, plumber and service engineer. How much are maintenance costs of the pellet boiler? The costs for maintenance are minor, the only thing which  needs to be changed once a year is the little pellet grate. The boiler maintaines its high efficiency through the special cleaning mechanism which is fully automatic. However when wood pellets burn there remains always a bit of ash which is stored in the ash box of the pellet boiler. This ash box needs to be emptied usually 4 to 5 times a year. (of course depending on how hard the boiler has  to run!) 

Easy and convenient heating with pellets:

  • Highest efficiencies provide you a low fuel bill
  • Extremely compact design
  • Intuitive touchscreen boiler control
  • Visualisation on smartphones, PCs and tablet computers

 

Available power ratings:

  • 15, 25, 35, 45, 49 and 70 kW
  • up to 420 kW with cascade connection

 

SOPHISTICATED TECHNOLOGY IN DETAIL

TECHNOLOGY and BENEFITS

At first glance, all pellet boilers are the same. But the difference is in the detail – and that is significant for low-maintenance and reliable operation! The SOLARFOCUS developments are protected by numerous patents. Pioneering technology for your pellet boiler!

Heat exchanger cleaning system
  • Turbulators clean the walls of the heat exchanger at regular preset intervals. Increased exhaust gas temperature results in a loss of efficiency.
    Clean fuel exchangers save fuel!
  • AUTOMATIC means AUTOMATIC!
    Uniform efficiency saves energy costs! Manual cleaning is not required. Maintenance free.
Auger feeder with single axis rotary valve
  • The pellets are transported from the intermediate container by the feed auger into the single axis rotary valve. The single axis rotary valve hermetically seals-off the combustion chamber from the intermediate container. Six-chamber system - along an axis to the feed auger with a direct flanged-connection, maintenance free drive motor.
  • 100% backburn-proof even if there is a power failure. Minimum power consumption. No chains or gear wheels - low noise and maintenance free.
Stainless steel grate and cleaning
  • The pellets fall from above through the single axis rotary valve onto the stainless steel combustion grate. The fire is not disturbed as the pellets feed from ABOVE on the fire-bed, with no mixing of ash and embers with the pellets = best efficiency!
  • The downfiring combustion technology automatically transports the ash downwards into the ash pan. There is no need to use a complicated mechanism to remove the ash.
Induced draft fan
  • The combustion air sucked in is regulated by the ID fan.
  • Efficient external rotor motor with stainless steel fan vanes, low noise, maintenance free with speed monitoring.
Automatic ignition
  • Ignition of the pellets is fully automatic via a highly heat-resistant solid ceramic glow pencil.
  • The glow pencil only requires 260 W. The glow pencil operates quietly and is maintenance-free.
Intermediate container for pellets with suction turbine
  • The pellettop has a generous intermediate container. The vacuum system turbine enables filling of the intermediate container within pre-set times in a closed circuit, maintenance free system.
  • The boiler room and pellet storage room do not have to be directly adjacent to each other. The vacuum turbine is directly mounted onto the intermediate container for pellets.

THE HEART OF YOUR NEW HEATING SYSTEM

The intelligent boiler control ecomanager-touch

To meet your daily comfort requirements, control is particularly important. You control when the heating comes on and how warm it should be. Both changing outside temperatures and your own personal living habits are taken into consideration. If the pellettop is used in combination with a solar system, the burner only starts up when the required heating energy cannot be provided in full by the solar system. This prevents any uneconomical boiler starts.

ecomanager-touch

  • 7" VGA colour touch display 
    guarantees simple and intuitive operation
  • Powerful microprocessor
    USB and Ethernet interface
  • Power-saving standby mode – only 4 watts

A wide range of access options

  • Recording of ACTUAL values on a USB stick
    Remote query via Ethernet interface
  • Remote control via smartphone, PC and tablet computer
  • Info messages via e-mail or text message to your mobile phone (option)
