MK Systemy Kominowe offers systems for gas and oil boilers.
When thinking about gas or oil as a heating fuel it is necessary to consider liquid petroleum gas, fuel oil and natural gas from utility lines.
Liquid gas, propane-butane gas- a mixture of light hydrocarbons, mainly propane and butane, used as a fuel (with a calorific value of approx. 46 MJ/kg, i.e. 10 MJ/m3) and the raw material for organic synthesis. It is one of the most versatile energy sources. It is mainly used as:
- fuel for various heating devices such as (gas radiators, heaters),
- a power source for household gas stoves, gas grilles, portable tourist stoves, catering stoves,
- motor fuel – liquid petroleum gas,
- fuel used mostly during the performance of roofing, plumbing, machining and cutting of metals,
- fuel in co-generation and micro co-generation systems
- fuel in industrial manufacturing processes – e.g. ceramics, brick production facilities,
- as the carrier gas in aerosol cosmetics.
LPG is obtained as a by-product of crude oil refining. Small amounts are also obtained from natural gas deposits,
Natural gas from utility lines – natural mixture of paraffin hydrocarbons which is comprised primarily of methane and other light hydrocarbons, especially ethane, propane, butane, pentane and hexane;
it contains admixtures of nitrogen, helium and others, flammable, formed by the decomposition of organic debris accumulated in marine sediments; usually accompanies crude oil, used mainly as a fuel (calorific value of 35.2 – 62.8 MJ/m 3), as well as a raw material in the chemical industry.
Fuel oil– mainly a product of crude oil processing, but also tars, bituminous shales;
obtained from petroleum tar, heavy oil (mazout) and as residue from cracking and pyrolysis of petroleum fractions;
used mainly as fuel in industrial stoves and steam boilers (calorific value of petroleum products of approx. 42 MJ/kg).
