Our Econoburn boilers have been put through an all-encompassing safety certification process to meet the stringent standards of both UL and CSA
Dunkirk, New York (PRWEB) January 15, 2009
Alternative Fuel Boilers, LLC, manufacturer of the Econoburn™ series of high-efficiency, low emission wood gasification boilers recently earned the right to mark its boilers with the Warnock-Hersey International safety mark for the U.S. and Canadian markets.
The Warnock-Hersey certification meets both UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) safety requirements for solid-fuel boilers according to company vice president of marketing Mark Odell.
"Our Econoburn boilers have been put through an all-encompassing safety certification process to meet the stringent standards of both UL and CSA," he said. "This is important for homeowners in both the U.S. and Canada, and assures them our boilers offer high-quality and safety as well as complying with typical insurance company requirements".
The safety testing consisted of several tests of the Econoburn's operation in real-world applications to verify safe operation in all extremes. The Warnock-Hershey certification process was completed by an independent, third-party laboratory in Middleton, WI.
Odell said, "The test I was most impressed with was the 'over-heat' test in which the boiler is subjected to a simulated power outage while in full operation. The boiler performed as engineered and as designed, reliably and safely."
Company president William Raines said, "I am very proud of our entire team that has designed, engineered and manufactured our Econoburn boilers to the very demanding standards that the Warnock-Hersey International designation reflects."
Econoburn offers residential boilers ranging in size from 100,000 to 300,000 BTUs and commercial boilers up to 1,000,000 BTUs.
