At first glance, all wood chip 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 wood chip boiler!
Downfiring combustion technology
When using downfiring combustion technology (wood gasification technology) the released gas is sucked through the grate and burned (residue-free) in the combustion chamber with a flame tip temperature of approx. 1,200°C.
The Lambda technology, which has been used by SOLARFOCUS since 1981, enables uniform combustion of the pellets in the therminator. Lambda technology is essential to ensure maximum efficiency with different load ranges.
Guarantees environmentally-friendly, energy-saving combustion in all load ranges. Decades of experience using Lambda technology.
Automatic ignition / ember retention
The boiler ignites the log wood fully automatically via a hot-air fan at the times you set.
You can select the "Ember retention" function: Embers then remain in the combustion chamber on the hopper grate for a certain time. This facilitates firing up after a complete burn-out.
Heat exchanger cleaning system
“Christmas Tree” Screws clean the walls of the heat exchangers at preset periods. The screws are closely aligned to the heat exchanger walls, removing any residues and depositing them in the ash chamber.
AUTOMATIC means AUTOMATIC!
Uniform efficiency saves energy costs! Manual cleaning is not required. Maintenance free.
Generously dimensioned ash chamber
Large ash chamber, compressed fireclay bricks.
Easy to replace, no complicated setup work required.
Lengthens the intervals for emptying of the ash.
Individually mounted fireclay bricks are service-friendly and ensure a long service life for the high-temperature combustion chamber.
Fully automatic cleaning of the stainless steel combustion grate
The jogging motor transfers vibrations to the stainless steel combustion grate at adjustable intervals, thus cleaning it fully automatically.
Is flange-mounted on the boiler side opposite the ignition fan. The connection is established via the boiler power element.
Flange for wood chip auger
Wood chip flange can be mounted on the left or right.
Also available with a blanking flange.
Allows retrofitting to wood chip operation at any time!
Stainless steel filling chamber
The generously dimensioned stainless steel filling chamber is designed to accommodate logs with a length of half a metre (max. 56 cm).
10-year guarantee as per maintenance contract on the filling chamber.
Large filling chamber – long burning time.
Secondary air control with servo-motor
The lambda-controlled secondary air admixture allows unparalleled combustion quality with highest efficiencies even when burning different biomass fuels.
AEven in the partial-load range, the therminatorII touch remains many times below the emission limit values.
Induced draft fan
The combustion air needed in the various areas is sucked in by the speed-controlled induced draft fan. It is controlled by the microprocessor which is built into the control system by the measuring values determined by the lambda sensor.
Efficient external rotor motor with stainless steel fan vanes, low noise, maintenance free with speed monitoring.
The backup battery prevents overheating in log wood mode in the event of a power failure.
Corrugated stainless steel pipe for best quality and safety.

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 therimnatoris 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.
7" VGA colour touch display
guarantees simple and intuitive operation
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)
Heating circuit and buffer charge control

Up to 4 fresh water stations can be controlled via expansion modules (optional)
With or without recirculation pump
Control of the solar energy system
The thermitnatoralso controls your solar energy system!
Optimum exploitation of solar energy via shared control. The boiler only switches on when the sun does not provide enough energy.
Up to 2 triple circuits can be controlled.
Also suitable for high-efficiency pumps.
Remote control module touch
Operate your thermitnator from the comfort of your living room with a remote control module!
7" VGA colour touch display, on-wall/in-wall
Communication via Ethernet with the ecomanager-touch boiler control
Access to actual and required system values
ecomanager-touch for smart phone
helps you to measure and control your heating system and your the hot water system.
If the boiler is used in combination with a solar energy system, the burner only starts when the required
heating energy cannot be fully provided by the solar energy system. This prevents any uneconomical boiler starts.
weather man function for highest solar thermal gain
if the SOLARFOCUS boiler is connected to the internet the weather server will update the boiler controller with weather forecast data.
through live weather data the controller is able to utilize the solar system as much as possible in order to reduce the pellet consumption and to make the system as profitable as possible.
THE CORRESPONDING STORAGE AND SUPPLY SYSTEM
Individually adaptable to suit your requirements
The agitator diameter can be matched to the specific space requirements from 2 to 4 metres in 1/2-metre steps. The agitator with leaf springs transports the wood chips to the direct extraction auger. The progressive leaf springs guarantee efficient emptying of the wood chip storage area. The heavy-duty gearbox, which was specially developed for wood chips, has an output side braking load of up to 27,000 Nm. It is particularly sturdily built and dust-tight to ensure continuous trouble-free operation.
Direct room extraction system
Charging with front loader, tipper, rear shovel
The angle compensator permits compensation of level differences between the boiler room and storage room.
