New generation of wood burning stoves to change heating systems for good
A revolutionary new heating technology, engineered by Rotex and Broseley Fires, is set to change the way we use wood burning stoves - forever. The innovative new system allows the use of solar and biomass power to provide heating and hot water all year round and for the first time can be used commercially allowing organisations to significantly reduce their carbon footprints.
The integrated biomass solar system provides heat during the winter via its wood burners, but can remain off in the summer whilst still absorbing the sun’s energy.
By using both wood and the sun, this unique piece of technology is the first of its kind to combine the use of two renewable energy sources.
The secret to the system’s success is Broseley Fires’ Safe Cold Water System. This unique solution allows the wood burners to connect to a pressurised boiler system and successfully combine with a solar energy unit. To prevent overheating, it uses a thermal valve calibrated at 97°C to flush a loop in the system with cold water.
For those times when the heating system needs topping up, the GasSolarUnit steps in to provide additional energy. Designed to use a minimal amount of fossil fuel, it’s one of the most advanced gas condensing boilers on the market.
Once the biomass power has been generated, retaining it in the REM Sanicube thermal store is simple and efficient. Keeping the energy stored until it is required for the heating or hot water up to 7 days later, this latent heat can be utilised. It guarantees a consistent and eco-friendly supply of both hot water and heating for that time period.
With their new integrated biomass heating system, Rotex and Broseley Fires are ensuring that their revolutionary wood burning stoves can play a positive role to ensure a sustainable future.
