The ClearFire®-CE (CFC-E) with TurboFer ensures heat transfer done right. The industry leading firetube design creates turbulence in the tubes, enhancing the flue gas heat transfer characteristics. It combines the AluFer® tube technology to significantly increase the effective heat transfer surface area up to five times greater than other condensing boilers, with a thermal conductivity ten times greater than stainless steel alone. These advancements result in a highly compact firetube boiler designed to maximize energy savings and offer high condensing performance. The TurboFer technology, along with new integrated controls, has been introduced in the ClearFire boilers, which have been tried and tested for 20+ years.
The new model consists of a large water capacity, thermal shock proof pressure vessel, capable of high-delta-T system designs to maximize condensing and reduce flow rates. The linkage-less burner provides fully modulating 10:1 turndown as standard without the use of complex air/fuel mixing valves. With its small overall footprint, the CFC-E is ideal for retrofit applications, and designed to leverage the advantages of primary-variable-flow pumping systems. This design offers system flexibility and true operational efficiency without compromise, making it an excellent choice for a variety of applications.
