Further Information- information - Boiler outputs for Country 16b woodburner & multi-fuel versions
Both wood-burning and multi-fuel versions of the Country 16b conform and are tested to EN13240. This standard requires that the test fuels are specified and outputs are published on this basis. The re-loading period can also be chosen. At Charnwood we have always believed in using realistic reloading times so that our stated outputs are easily achievable – for coal and smokeless fuel products we use 4 hours and for wood 1.5 hours.
The size of the boiler for both versions of the Country 16b is the same; however different fuels under EN13240 test conditions give different results as detailed in the chart below:
The burning performance of wood differs over time compared to that of coal based fuels (see graphs), therefore when burning wood we recommend that a figure of 10kW is used to size the system, while the stated 12kW figure should be used for coal based fuels.
