Apollo Back Boiler...Our best selling stove now comes with the option of a back boiler.
The Apollo with Back Boiler is a curved - contemporary styled, multi-fuel wood burning stove that offers a maximum output of 12kw, and a nominal output of 8kw. Manufactured in Europe and finished to an extremely high standard of quality, in dark contemporary grey, half lined with natural dark grey granite stone, and completed with polished silver handles.
The back boiler is a fixed wrap around steel boiler that offers 7kw to water heating. It will heat approximately 10 average sized radiators and provide domestic hot water. The back boiler is rated up to a working pressure of 2 bar and can therefore be used with a closed - un-vented heating system, or with an open - vented system. The water connections on the rear of the stove are a 1 inch BSP male and half inch BSP male, metric connections are available from almost all plumbing merchants.
The Apollo incorporates 6 water connections on the rear of the stove, essentially 3 pairs of connections:
1 x flow and return for domestic hot water
1 x flow and return for central heating
1 x flow and return for Thermostatic safety flush valve. The Apollo incororates a cooling coil within the boiler. This allows the "optional" connection of a mains water supply directly in to the boiler, and a drain to waste. In the event of oveheating or excessive pressure mains cold water can be allowed to enter through the cooling coil to cool the boiler down and reduce the pressure. Please note that a TAS (thermal saftey flush valve) is required to utilise this option. We sell the TAS Valve £79.00 (please see the diagram below of how it can be plumbed)
We also sell a pump station with control valves and pressure guage £279.00. Please call for further details or information.
The bottom log storage compartment is not available on the back boiler model, it is replaced with a manual water temperature control button, which allows the user to choose the water temperature flow. We have many - many customers who have advised us that after installing this stove they have made significant savings on their energy bills.
The stylish Apollo incorporates an automatic primary air control and a manual secondary airflow control vent to provide optimum control over the burn rate and temperature output. An advanced air wash system ensures that the large curved ceramic glass window remains clean and clear to provide a warming view of the flames. Other features include a large removable ash pan for ease of cleaning and maintenance and stylish granite soap stone finish.
