The TURBO system is intended for gas exhaust from heating appliances with airtight burning chambers.
These are specialised chimneys used for exhaust of combustion gases produced by stoves using the effect of steam condensation in the combustion process. Part of the heat contained in the combustion gases is recovered though cooling and condensation of steam.
Because stoves with airtight burning chambers utilise flue vacuum (the combustion gases they produce aren’t “sucked in” by the chimney through gravity, but are rather “blown out” by the stove), the chimneys connected to it must have a high degree of airtightness as well. That’s why the TURBO chimney system is fitted with silicon gaskets in the connector adaptors of the combustion gas pipes, which ensures that the system is properly airtight.
The TURBO system is manufactured in three variants:
- Single wall – an assortment of pipes and fittings intended for installation in existing ceramic chimneys. The pipes suck away the combustion gases, while others deliver air into the stove. Special attention must be paid to the cleanliness of the ceramic chimney. The single-wall TURBO system is not recommended for chimneys previously used with stoves burning solid fuels, because the dirt, soot and other impurities may be sucked into the stove and damage it.
- Twin wall, insulated – a set of pipes or fittings with a circular cross-section including an internal pipe for combustion gas exhaust, thermal isolation and external layer. This type is meant to be used for exterior chimneys or internal, uncovered flue lines if no flue is available for the system.
- Combustion air intake – the system is made up of two concentric pipes – an interior one (through which combustion gases are expelled) and an exterior one. The space between the two pipes is used to suck in combustion air. This system is recommended for installation in dirty, previously used ceramic flues, or as interior chimneys. It can also be used to exhaust the combustion gases directly through the wall of a building (horizontally).
Thanks to the fact that the combustion air is taken in from the outside, this technology can be applied to very small rooms like bathrooms, kitchens – the airtight combustion chamber ensures absolute safety for the users.
