P4 pellet boiler Cross Section

Commercial Ready

The Fröling P4 automatic wood pellet boiler with its fully automated operation can replace or supplement an oil or gas boiler in larger homes and commercial, industrial, or institutional buildings. Two sizes with Btu/hr. ranges between 163,780-341,000 with the capability to cascade up to four boilers together. Self-cleaning features and large removable ash bins mean low maintenance. The Fröling P4 100 wood pellet boiler is uniquely sized at 340,000 Btu/hr.  From single boiler installations to four boilers in a cascade, the P4 100 has a proven track record as an economical, durable, high-efficiency performer.  Please visit our blog to see many examples of commercial/institutional P4 wood pellet boiler installations in the United States.

The Fröling P4 Model 80/100 is ASME certified.

Speed Regulated Draft Fan and Lambda Control

A speed regulated fan combined with oxygen and temperature based exhaust sensors allow Fröling wood pellet boilers to modulate output while remaining clean and efficient. The boiler can react to changing pellet fuel (harder/softer, more/less pitch, small/large pellets) while still remaining clean. The use of oxygen control is less common, but it is the best way to ensure the cleanest burn possible. Standard large touch screens enable internet connectivity and the ability to view multiple functions at a single glance. Fröling controls track fuel use, maintenance, and the function of all electric components.

Automatic Ignition

All Fröling P4 Wood Pellet boilers have automatic ignition using a hot air gun that ignites the fuel quickly and effectively.

Easy to Clean

Fröling wood pellet boilers self-clean the combustion grate and heat exchanger so that combustion is safe, clean, and controlled while extracting as much heat as is possible from your valuable fuel. The innovative three-pass design allows complete combustion, ensuring low emissions. Ash is collected automatically into two large ash containers, which can be emptied easily. Our average boiler owner only empties the ash box 3-5 times per year depending on the amount of fuel used.

Industry Leading Safety Concepts

P4 wood pellet boilers are inherently safe due to combustion zones being surrounded by water. Because regular use never requires access to combustion zones there is no possibility for embers or fire to escape. Fröling takes the safety concept to new levels by not only using hollow drop tubes to deliver fuel, but they also add industry-leading double safety gates to isolate fuel storage from the combustion zone. It is impossible for both gates to be open during normal operation. The ingenious mechanical design coupled with advanced software ensures during self-testing that all components are ready before ignition is allowed.

Connectivity

Fröling Connect software allows free remote monitoring and control from web enabled devices. You can read and modify the main status information and settings easily and conveniently on-line. It is also possible to store historic operating information and receive warnings such as when the ash box is full. It allows the owner of the heating system to enable additional users, for example a family member, neighbor, or service technician. Once the boiler is connected to the internet, the system can be accessed 24/7 from everywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or PC with web browser.
