SFL manufacture systems that are designed to complement both unit and cabinet type warm air heaters.
SFL working alongside appliance manufacturers has grown the SUPRA® and NOVA® ranges to become the flue of choice for modern warm Air, providing easily installed, high quality, robust standard ranges with custom parts availability all built in the UK to last.
Typically, warm air heaters have two different branches, both heat and discharge air with the aid of a burner, heat exchanger and axial or centrifugal air supply fan.
High-level individual unit heaters will be flued vertically through the building roof or horizontally through the wall, many types of unit heaters have the facility to bring combustion air directly from outside via the flue, these “balanced flue” units are gaining popularity with installers as they easily meet building regulations.
Advanced gas and oil fuelled Warm Air heaters are mainly supplied with In-shot or the latest Premix, low NOx high-efficiency burners. Modern burner control technology provides on/off, high/low or fully modulating control creating new flue and chimney requirements.
Performance of the appliances can be significantly affected by incorrect flue design and many other factors including:
Heater location and flue run outside Flue system and design must have the flexibility to match the heater location within the building, giving an achievable, safe and cost-effective exhaust system.
Condensing & high efficient heaters Ensure the system has the correct seals and joint clamps to minimise leaks and joint failures.
Achieving the desired efficiency The system should be matched perfectly to the specified type and fuel of the warm air unit heater maximising efficiency and controllability.
