Product Spotlight: Clean Burn CB-2500

Tuesday, 07 May 2019 12:20

The Clean Burn CB-2500 is the most popular option for midsized shops and workspaces because of the low profile design that allows for easy application in a variety of settings. As the second largest low-profile model, the CB-2500 is often the ideal introductory waste oil heater for businesses that have not recycled their oil before. Let’s talk about some of the features that make this waste oil furnace so popular.

The CB-2500 Stats

The CB-2500 is approximately 8.5 feet by 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet. Weighing just over 500 pounds, this waste oil furnace produces approximately 250,000 BTU/hour. If you are considering the CB-2500, here is what you can expect:

  • Efficient heat production due to design that is specifically engineered to burn waste oil
  • An extended service life that is supported by non-welded flue tubes
  • A low-maintenance heating system that does not require cleaning at frequent intervals
  • A low stack temperature
  • Preheating mechanism that optimizes oil combustion
  • No need for manual fuel adjustment
  • Flexible installation options, including as a ducted heating system

The CB-2500 offers users the benefit of state-of-the-art Clean Burn technology in a size that suits mid-sized workshops perfectly. The ability to use this heating system as a single unit, ducted or with the Clean Burn recycling center makes it an especially unique option for business owners.

Installing The CB-2500

The CB-2500 is one of our most versatile systems. This is a significantly larger unit than some of the smaller models, however, it still runs efficiently on 115 VAC 60Hz, single phase 30A circuit breaker. It does require a 2.5CFM @25 PSI air compressor, but the entire system can easily be mounted on the ceiling on its own or as a ducted system. If you opt for the CB-2500, your Clean Burn distributor can help you navigate the installation process and help your facility get the most out of your heating system.

CB-2500 Versus The Market

Clean Burn technology ensures that each and every one of our heating systems offers the best on the market. One of the ways we do this is through identifying weaknesses in traditional systems and improving them in our systems. Let’s look at some of the traditional models and see what the CB-2500 does differently.

Factory Direct

Most factory direct systems feature an axial four blade fan assembly, which minimizes the air flow and makes quite a bit of noise. There are minimal flue tubes which significantly reduces the available heating surface. The CB-2500 features 250% more surface area for a greater heat transfer and more output.

Blast Tube

Blast tube heating systems are constructed with stainless steel, which limits thermal conductivity. It is engineered with a modified burner that cannot handle waste oil and many of the other features that support the lightweight model don’t have the longevity to stand up to regular, long term usage. The CB-2500 is created with heavy-duty steel gears that provide an extended lifetime and retains heat throughout usage, maximizing the output.

Converted Fuel Oil

Converted fuel oil heaters don’t keep heat in the combustion chamber, which makes the heat output less efficient while using more fuel. The design also can lead to ash build-up and blockage. This model also has three separate electrical boxes, which makes repairs and maintenance very difficult. Alternatively, the CB-2500 features onboard diagnostics to make service and repairs much easier. The swedged tubes, as opposed to welded tubes, decreases heat stress.

Stainless Steel

A stainless steel heating system has vertical flue tubes that are susceptible to cracking during normal heating operation. They also have a very limited performance capability and are unable to burn pure, synthetic oils or cold oil. The CB-2500 is designed specifically for waste oil but has the capability to burn other types of oil as well. Swedged flue tubes support a long lifespan.

Is The CB-2500 Right For You?

If you are considering a Clean Burn heating system, the CB-2500 might be the ideal option for you. Businesses with multiple bays that produce 1,000 gallons or more of waste oil can take advantage of the benefits the CB-2500 has to offer.
