Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Carbon dioxide is a gas which is produced when materials containing carbon are combusted. Climatic changes occur due to the increase of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere. The increase in the earth's temperature is also called the greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide can be reduced by reducing fuel consumption.

Carbon monoxide (CO)

A poisonous gas which is produced when materials containing carbon are combusted. Its production is virtually eliminated by correct burner adjustment.

Circulating pump

An electrical water pump, which pumps the heating circuit water to radiators or floor heaters.

CO2

CO2, carbon dioxide, is a gas created in most combustion processes and also, for example, by respiration. This gas is considered one of the causes of the greenhouse effect and the global warming associated with that. It is also the gas converted through photosynthesis in plants into vitally important oxygen (O2). Weishaupt burners and heating systems are - thanks to decades of research and development - highly efficient with very good fuel consumption and very low CO2 emissions.

Combustion air

Combustion air contains up to 21 percent oxygen, which is essential for combustion. 78 percent of the air is nitrogen. About 10 m³ of combustion air is required for the complete combustion of 1 m³ of gas or 1 litre of heating oil.

Combustion gases

Products resulting from the combustion of fuel and air. In the main, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour are produced.

Combustion manager

The sequence of operations in a combustion process is controlled by modern microprocessor technology. There are many advantages for the operator, and it also enable service technicians to carry out their work more purposefully and quickly (Digital burner technology).
