THE WAY IT WAS
Before the "SICURO TOP" System was created, an open expansion chamber had to be mounted onto the heating system (according to the law still in force) when installing any wood-fired product in a home heating system. The function of this open chamber was, and is, to release any pressure created inside the unit and plumbing system if the water reaches boiling… Read morepoint due, for example, to a sudden black-out; this is because wood keeps burning even without electricity. Open-chamber heating systems are now outdated and no longer taken into consideration by heating technicians and designers as they have several drawbacks that closed circuit systems do not. First of all, there is an element of danger in the event of boiling, the high heat dispersion, the difficulty in construction and their incompatibility with the latest generation gas wall boilers.
"SICURO TOP" was created more than 17 years ago in the KLOVER workshops to offer a range of technologically innovative, cutting-edge and, at the same time, safe products. The System has been continuously developed to increase its heating efficiency and safety. Today we are proud to offer a tested and safe system that has reached an extremely high level of… Read moreexcellence.
"SICURO TOP" exploits the principle of "bain-marie" by providing a home heating system fitted with a closed expansion chamber, while the "SICURO TOP" product has a built-in open chamber and works, therefore, at zero pressure. The appliance can be linked in with previously installed equipment (any boiler, including gas wall boilers), or act as a single source home heating system.… Read moreThe boiler body is a "water chamber" type with heat exchange elements in direct contact with the flame. The hearth is closed by a ceramic glass door. The combustion chamber is completely enveloped by water (except for the front part and the fire bed where the cast iron grill is located). The fumes have to go through the system two times before leaving the appliance (see the Flue Gas Pass diagram). Two heat exchangers, primary and secondary, are installed in the upper section of the boiler body to supply, respectively, the radiator heating and domestic hot water systems. The exchangers are immersed "bain-marie" style in the water of the appliance that flows into the upper or side stainless steel tank, fitted with a removable lid for easy inspection of the heat exchangers or ball cock.
SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE OPERATION
The fire and flue gases heat the water contained in the boiler body which, in turn, provides heat to the water that circulates in the upper and side heat exchangers (primary exchanger in a 22 mm diameter stainless steel pipe for the heating system and secondary exchanger in a 14 mm diameter stainless steel pipe for thedomestic water system). The… Read morewater flow in the primary heat exchanger (radiator system) is controlled by the electronic control unit, while the water flow in the secondary heat exchanger (domestic water) is provided by the pressure in the water mains or, if necessary, by the supplementary water pump.
No more dangers due to increased pressure in the event of boiling water. The pressure inside the boiler body is zero. The heating stove is fitted with an overflow tube that guarantees safety in the event of boiling by discharging excess water from the upper tank. If water needs to be topped up, the appliance is fitted with anautomatic refilling… Read moreball cock.
