WFM Co design manufacture & install hot water boilers boilers across Australia.
Our hot water boilers can be adapted to the individual needs and requirements of each market. Throughout Australia, the most popular way to provide central heating and hot water for all types of commercial buildings, such as schools, hotels, offices, hospitals and even large apartment blocks, is by using a boiler specially designed for commercial situations. Our commercial boilers can be run on natural gas, liquid petroleum gas or oil.
A thermal oil boiler fires through a helical coil and generates energy from the hot products of combustion by heating the coil through radiation and convection. The coil heats thermal oil or fluid that is pumped through the thermal oil boiler. The thermal oil heats the coils in various types of heat exchangers. Unlike a water or steam boiler, this heating process does not heavily pressurise the system.
A thermal oil boiler is nearly always cheaper to operate and maintain than water boilers. Unfortunately, due to the high pressure required to operate water and steam boilers, they can become far more hazardous than thermal oil boilers.
Other key advantages are the lack of corrosion, lime deposits and scale that are common within heated water or steam boilers. This can raise the operating costs of a water boiler considerably. Thermal oil boilers don’t require makeup water or efficiency draining steam traps.
