Our Sapphire boiler is a fully modulating stainless steel kerosene or HVO liquid fuelled boiler that can be controlled using OpenTherm. In both new build and replacement works, it exceeds the compliance requirements with the new Approved Document L Requirements for England.
Down below is an interview with EOGB’s Managing Director, Martin Cooke, and we asked him some questions regarding ADL, our company, and the importance of correctly sizing boilers.
Sapphire Kerosene Boiler
0.298 kgC02e kWh / boiler eff of 93.0% =
Sapphire HVO Boiler
0.036 kgCO2e kWh / boiler eff of 93.0% = 0.04kg CO2e/kWh
Bio – mass boiler
0.053 kgCO2e kWh / boiler eff of 75.0% = 0.07kg CO2e/kWh
Kerosene/HVO Primary Energy
1.180 kgCO2e kWh / boiler eff of 93.0% = 1.269 kWhPE/kWh
1.325 kgCO2e kWh / boiler eff of 75.0%= 1.701 kWhPE/kWh
The data above highlights that you could not compliantly replace a bio-mass boiler with an oil boiler as the emissions per kWh would be greater, as expected from fossil fuel, but, applying an HVO Sapphire boiler would be compliant and as demonstrated here could be approaching 60% less environmentally damaging in terms of emissions than a Part L compliant bio-mass boiler!
The data presented above also demonstrates clearly that a Sapphire boiler, either kerosene or HVO outperforms a building regulation-compliant bio-mass boiler in terms of primary energy by some 25% reduction in Primary Energy.
