UK biomass boiler technology expert Rural Energy has unveiled a new cutting-edge management system on all its small and medium sized boilers as part of its partnership with leading European manufacturer Herz.


The new Herz T-Control provides a totally interactive way of managing the functionality of biomass boilers.

The operational performance of the Rural Energy Herz boiler can be controlled with a touch of the user-friendly screen.

The high-tech controller is being provided on all future Herz pellet and chip boilers up to 300KW supplied by Rural Energy, from the end of April.

Paul Clark, managing director of Rural Energy, said: "This really is a major breakthrough in user control and is an exciting new development for our biomass delivery systems."

T-Control means the biomass system can also be monitored from anywhere, using an app for remote PCs, tablets and mobiles.

Processes and parameters can be read and modified from anywhere – at any time.

The digital system provides convenient and easy menu navigation allowing the user to control buffer management, water temperatures, on/off times and domestic hot water supply as well as having control of multiple heating circuits, either within the same building or to a number of buildings.

It also allows them to manage any solar thermal circuits and frost protection.

The interactive screen displays 3D images to give the user an insight into the heart of the biomass boilers.

The cutting-edge system created by Herz also includes a convenient and easy navigation menu.

Paul Clark said: "This system is compatible with the Modbus protocol so our clients' Boiler Management system (BMS) can plug in directly and interrogate all the data in the T-Control.

"Traditionally, biomass boilers operate independently from the BMS, so this controller opens the door to a fully integrated system.

"Or, if there is no resident BMS the T-Control can manage all the plantroom devices centrally."

Rural Energy, based in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, is celebrating ten years at the forefront of the biomass sector, and is part of the Myriad CEG Group, which is a leading UK provider of renewable energy solutions.
