As the market faces important changes in legislative requirements, such as the upcoming Energy-related Products (ErP) regulations, Riello continues to work closely with its OEM partners and installers to meet this challenge with updated products and technologies.
Riello burners are the combustion core of the majority of residential oil boilers in UK and Irish homes. The current generation of RDB low NOx, blue flame burners are already fully compliant with existing ErP requirements and through its advanced development programme, the company is implementing all of the required measures to ensure compliance with later phases of this legislation.
To that end, Riello is focusing strongly on innovative features that will deliver high turndown, low NOx and improved efficiency in terms of both combustion and electrical consumption. The future generation of low NOx blue flame burners will therefore not only meet increasingly stringent NOx emission levels, it will also satisfy higher turndown requirements with more efficient response to variable heat loads.
In parallel, many of the familiar elements and characteristics of the current RDB oil burner range will be maintained for ease of installation, commissioning and maintenance – with many of the same first line spares as earlier models.
“A combination of feedback from stakeholders and anticipation of future legislation, such as the ErP 2021 Directive, is helping to guide our R&D programmes to ensure we not only meet future expectations, but exceed them,” explained Riello’s UK Residential Key Account Director Graham Barker. “The new designs will help to ensure that Riello low NOx, blue flame oil burners remain the first choice for installers and their customers.”
