Please note: Furnace Fuel is not suitable for diesel appliances.
Furnace Fuel is suitable for large scale heating applications only.
Commercial boilers that traditionally run on gas oil can now use clean-burning central heating oil called Furnace Fuel. Reprocessed oil and crude oils are mixed together to produce this fuel.
Furnace Fuel – The Details
- The Approved British Standard for central heating oil is BS EN 2869, Class D, which Furnace Fuel completely complies with.
- It is a hay-like colour. So it doesn’t look like gas oil.
- An engineer doesn’t need to be consulted before you use it as all commercial boilers are able to use Furnace Fuel.
- Oil tank lids will not be damaged by using this fuel. Other oils with high bio features have been known to cause such problems.
What Are The Benefits?
- It offers considerable cost savings as standard gas oil is more expensive than Furnace Fuel.
- Can be used as a direct substitute for gas oil.
- Your boiler efficiency will be improved as well as lowering your carbon emissions.
- Hugely reduces the risk of contamination through microbial content.
- When gas oil starts to reach temperatures below 0°C it will start to deteriorate. However, Furnace Fuel can reach temperatures of -24°C before it will begin to deteriorate.
- You can be prosecuted for using Furnace Fuel in tractors, forklifts and other machinery.
- A bunded oil tank is best storage method for Furnace Fuel.
- It should be stored away from open water sources as it is toxic to water animals.
