From a maintenance standpoint, the replaceable optic sensor head provides trouble-free installation and replacement without the need to reset probe Heights. RIELLO had on display its 40 Series oil burners. These feature (either as standard or optional depending upon the sub model) a new ducted com- bustion air intake that channels the external air directly into the burner. Similarly, a new pri- mary control is available with an integrated 24V thermostat connection.

The system can also be used to make deliveries in locations that are partic- ularly difficult to reach in inclement weather using a standard deliv- ery truck.
