TECHNOLOGY

As a core element of our range of ebios-fire® bioethanol fireplaces, wick, automatic and vaporising burners offer a wealth of possibilities. Without the need for a flue or chimney, installation is possible just about anywhere.

Icon Wick Burner
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.

Safety features

  • 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.

Icon Automatic Burner
THE AUTOMATIC BURNER

The remote-controlled ebios-fire® automatic burner uses pumps to transport liquid bioethanol to a 500 mm or 1000 mm wide burning channel, where it is ignited.

The bioethanol supply is stored in 5 litre canisters, which can be stored either under the burner or at a storage location further away.

Safety features

  • Filling level sensors in the burning channel
  • Temperature sensors
  • Automatic shut-down after 8 hours of continuous operation
  • Acoustic warning signal in the event of a malfunction
  • Overflow sensor

Icon Vaporising Burner
THE VAPORISING BURNER

This is the first burner with a vaporising system that meets the extreme demands of DIN EN 16647. Prior to combustion, the ethanol is heated to approx. 80°C in a separate vaporising chamber, from which it is then guided to a burning channel as a gas.

In this section, the vapour is burned at a higher temperature level than in conventional ethanol burners, thereby significantly reducing the odours generated by ethanol combustion.

Safety features

  • Temperature sensors
  • Leakage sensors
  • External input for CO2 detector
  • Impact sensor
  • Tilt sensor
  • Ethanol level sensor in the tank and in the vaporising chamber
  • Monitoring of many safety-relevant components

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.
