As a core element of our range of ebios-fire® bioethanol fireplaces, wick burner offer a wealth of possibilities. Without the need for a flue or chimney, installation is possible just about anywhere.
THE WICK BURNER
The patented technology used in ebios-fire® wick burners permits zero-deflagration ignition of the burner, which is TÜV-tested and certified according to DIN 4734-1 or DIN EN 16647. This makes the ebios-fire® wick burner one of the safest bioethanol burners currently on the market.
The volume of the burner tanks, which are pressure tested during production, varies in accordance with the burner size, just like the heat output.
The wick burner is an integral part of most ebios-fire® Design Collection models. Glass panels in front of and behind the flames don’t just reflect the mesmerising flames multiple times, but also contribute to the burner’s safety and function.
- Pressure-tested tank
- Filling level display
- Safety tank lock
- Pressure relief valve
The fuel tank lock and wick system prevent bioethanol from spilling if the burner is tipped over.
DESIGNED WITH CARE AND TÜV-CERTIFIED
The combination of liquid fuel, people and an open flame can be a dangerous one. That is why we have designed all ebios-fire® fireplaces with a maximum of user safety and intuitive operating processes in mind.
All ebios-fire® appliances are extensively tested in our factory laboratory where we monitor fuel consumption, heat output, flame behaviour and material durability. Furthermore, the majority of ebios-fire® burners and fire- place models is tested and certified by the TÜV inspection association.
All ebios-fire® appliances leave the factory lab-tested and carefully packaged. Each burner features safety symbols intended to supplement the detailed user manual and help users handle their ebios-fire® fireplace safely.
Furthermore, a user manual is included with each fireplace, providing the user with valuable information about the appliance, its installation, use and maintenance as well as about the required bioethanol.
CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY FOR SAFE OPERATION
Although we dedicate great effort to making ebios-fire® fireplaces as safe as possible to give our customers a thoroughly positive experience, it is our customers themselves who bear the final responsibility for safe operation of their fireplaces.
Therefore, we would like to emphasise the importance of adhering to the following safety rules: Familiarise yourself with the safety requirements listed in the user manual of your ebios-fire® fireplace and ensure that everyone who will be operating the fireplace is familiar with them as well.
We strongly advise against any modification of components or the design of ebios-fire® appliances. This includes the use of decorative ceramic items like logs or pebbles in the flames.
ROOM AIR QUALITY
Contrary to common believe, it is not primarily the consumption of oxygen which decreases the room air quality, but rather the formation of CO2. Carbon dioxide is a trace gas which occurs naturally in air, but is also produced by plants, animals, humans and – of course – any combustion process like the burning of bioethanol.
Two people will generate approximately 75 g of CO2 per hour. A fire burning 0.5 litres of bioethanol per hour will generate 740 g CO2 .
The second factor influencing the room air quality is the consumption of oxygen. Air with an average quality contains approximately 21 % of oxygen. This means that a room of 40 m2 with a ceiling height of 2.5 m (100 m3) contains 27 kg of oxygen.
Last but not least, the air exchange rate is a crucial factor which helps to compensate for both CO2 emission and oxygen consumption.
In order to keep the indoor climate at its best, i.e. the room air quality as high as possible during operation of a bioethanol fire, it is essential to carefully plan the size of the burner considering the room size, its volume and ventilation.
