Vigas

The VIGAS gasification boiler is one of Europe’s No1 bestselling boilers, its high efficiency qualifies it for the RHI payments. It can also operate on a range of Biomass fuels.
The large firebox enables long periods of burn time between fueling with no complications, cheap to run and easy to maintain.
Ludlow Stoves can supply 5 Vigas boiler sizes of 25, 40, 60, 80 & 100 KW of rated output. Each of these models is equipped with the electronic burn controller AK 2005D. This means optimal comfort for you and for the wood a constant even burn.

Description

The VIGAS gasification boiler is one of Europe’s No1 bestselling boilers, its high efficiency qualifies it for the RHI payments. It can also operate on a range of Biomass fuels.
The large firebox enables long periods of burn time between fueling with no complications, cheap to run and easy to maintain.
Ludlow Stoves can supply 5 Vigas boiler sizes of 25, 40, 60, 80 & 100 KW of rated output. Each of these models is equipped with the electronic burn controller AK 2005D. This means optimal comfort for you and for the wood a constant even burn.
Essentially you fill the boiler with wood, ignite and everything else runs automatically. The large filling space provides for a long burning duration. The integrated blower ensures that even with a cold boiler, you will have a problem-free start.
Once lit the blower stabilizes the burn over the entire burning duration allowing this boiler to run problem free.
The smallest VIGAS boiler can be fed with large split logs up to 560 mm long as well as rough chopped timber. As a result of the large amount of wood filling space (120-485 ltrs ) long burn times can be had. The firebox space has “hot air circulation”, whereby an increase in output and best exhaust gas values are obtained. Timber loading lengths for the VIGAS are 25 and 40 KW – 50 cm long, 60 KW to – 75 cm long,  100 KW – 100 cm long.

Vigas gasification boilers

Vigas boilers are made in the Slovak Republic. They are a well built log gasification boiler with a range of different outputs. You light a smallish fire in the boiler like you would in a stove and leave it to catch properly. When the fire has caught you load up the firebox with very dry logs, shut the door and push the start button.

After around 20 – 30 minutes the fire will have got sufficiently hot and when you push the flue flap closed it will start to gasify. At that point the flue should stop smoking and the hot flue gases will now be going through the boiler tubes. The Vigas is a reverse combustion or downburning boiler (sometimes called ‘downdraught boilers’ or ‘downdraught burners’, but this is misleading as downdraught is a common term used to describe a chimney which puffs smoke). In a ‘normal’ burner the flue gases and smoke go upwards, but in a downburner they are drawn downwards, in this case through the use of a fan. This allows more accurate control of the combustion and the air supply needed for most efficient burning.The smallest Vigas requires a 150mm flue while the other models need a 200mm diameter flue.
In the event of the boiler overheating an overheat safety system kicks in which flushes mains cold water through a coil in the boiler. The hot water coming out of this coil is then discharged to a waste pipe and in this way the boiler is cooled down. There are some simple monthly maintenance tasks to keep the Vigas in good condition which will take around 10-15minutes, and you do have to empty the ash.
