Turbulators, also called flue gas spirals, ensure the highest possible efficiency in the area of the heat exchanger in modern biomass heating systems.
The combustion gases are slowed down and swirled by the turbulator. As a result, the gas flow in the surface layer changes from the laminar to the turbulent area, which greatly improves the heat transfer between the gas and heat exchanger tubes.
As a component with a high level of functional integration, the turbulator also serves as a cleaning spiral in the heat exchanger. To do this, the component is moved up and down at regular intervals - manually (boiler with low output) or electrically. The combustion residues such as soot, ash and scale are scraped off the inner wall of the pipe.
Since modern biomass heating systems are becoming more and more efficient, the exhaust gas temperatures also rise to 800°C or higher. So that the turbolator is not damaged ("burns off") at such high temperatures, we offer our products in different materials.
