Product Portfolio
  • Pellet heating

    • KWB Easyfire wood pellet heating system

    • The KWB Easyfire wood pellet heating systems with cleanEfficiency technology are among Europe's best-selling wood pellet heating systems and are the cleanest wood pellet heating systems in the world. Their power consumption is much less than that of a standard television set. But most importantly, they can cut your heating costs by half!

      The under-feed combustion system, invented by KWB, ensures completely smooth combustion processes and enables emissions within the regulated guidelines. Thanks to the efficient combustion, emptying the convenient movable ash container is easy and comfortable, and is necessary only once every two years (depending on the size of the system).

      8, 12, 15, 22, 25, 30, 35 kW
    • Easy operation

    • In the power range up to 12 kW, the wood ash is only emptied every two years with a convenient, moveable ash container. Combined with the 6-year KWB Comfort Guarantee, operation is made easy.
    • Simple drive concept

    • Energy-saving drive motors for pellet and ash transport ensure low power consumption. A large rotary feeder with metering screw permits a safe and efficient pellet feed.
    • Simple planning

    • The fully integrated and volume-controlled return flow boost enables connection of the wood pellet heating system to any existing heat distribution system. Unlike conventional wood pellet heating systems, there is no need for an external return flow boost. This saves you additional installation costs.
    • Straightforward assembly

    • The modular system with lightweight and compact components allows the new KWB Easyfire wood pellet heating system to be easily moved into a boiler room. No matter whether you have to negotiate narrow passages or steep staircases – the compact dimensions of the heating system make installation straight forward. The fully installed heating system has a footprint of just 0.75 m².
    • Clean due to 96% efficiency

    • The special springs installed in the heat exchanger ensure optimum heat exchange and low exhaust gas temperatures.
    • Clean thanks to emissions at the measurability limit

    • The special geometry of the dust separator with cyclone effect produces eddies in the combustion gases. The heavy dust particles then sink and do not enter the chimney.
    • Clean due to controlled combustion

    • Combustion is continuously monitored and optimally controlled by the broadband lambda probe, which ahs been specially developed for biomass heating systems. A new ceramic ignition element with flame detection ignites the combustion intermittently within approx. three minutes. You benefit from low energy consumption and high operational reliability.
    • Clean due to under-feed combustion system

    • In the new KWB Easyfire wood pellet heating system, the pellets are pushed gently onto the burner plate from below. The fuel bed therefore remains completely stable and no additional dust eddies are generated. The pellets burn out completely in four clearly delimited combustion zones.
  • Wood chip and pellet heating

    • KWB Multifire wood chips/pellets

    • The KWB Multifire pellet and wood chip heating system can be fired both with wood pellets and with wood chips. A fuel hopper ensures minimal power consumption and quiet operation. As a result of a high material quality and system components that have been optimised over many decades, the heating system is extremely robust and compact. A wood chip heating system for those who attach great value to economical operation of the heating system.

      The movable ash container is convenient. Two ash removal screws automatically transport the ashes from the combustion chamber into the attached ash container. Additional monitoring of the ash fill level ensures maximum cleanliness in the boiler room.

    • Quality-cast robust under-feed combustion system

    • Thanks to its cast-iron burner plate/cleaning unit, the KWB under-feed system represents a heating system that is highly-efficient and operationally reliable in the long term. This makes for trouble-free firing, even of ash-rich fuels such as forest wood chip and wood chip from short rotation crops.
    • Robust fuel-extractor systems
       

    • The KWB conveyor systems achieve an extremely high level of wear resistance because individual components are produced from stainless steel and the gear units can also handle particularly heavy loads.
    • Robust thanks to extremely high processing and material quality

    • All conveyor systems in KWB Multifire wood chip and wood pellet heating systems have long service life and a high resistance to wear. Only KWB offers stainless steel spirals in the feed area, an optimised trough geometry and a maintenance-free, double-sealed heavy-duty gear unit.
    • Robust thanks to KWB MultiFlex ash removal

    • In addition to the standard combustion chamber ash removal, there is also the KWB MultiFlex burner extension. In this case, the burner plate is equipped with an efficient cleaning mechanism. This makes the KWB Multifire even more reliable when using ash-rich wood fuels that tend to produce slag.
    • Economical: Hopper ensures minimal power consumption

    • The hopper with its stable design is only available from KWB. A light barrier system in the container automatically regulates the fill level. The hopper extends the service life of the fuel extractor and minimises power costs because the conveyor system starts up less frequently. (Manual operation is also possible).
    • Economical: Multi-mode: wood chips or pellets

    • The KWB Multifire allows operation with wood pellets or wood chips. This makes you more flexible when selecting your fuel.
    • Economical: Unique, patented heat exchanger cleaning with special turbulators
