Heating Your Business for Less

Fuelling your commercial boilers isn’t cheap. If you use red diesel (gas oil) in heating applications, you could be missing out on significant savings. Our industrial heating oil is a cost-effective, drop-in alternative to red diesel, made specifically for use in commercial boilers, dryers and heaters. There’s no need to faff around emptying your tanks of red diesel – you can just add it to your existing stocks.

What is industrial heating oil?

Industrial heating oil is specifically intended for use in commercial boiler applications for heat generation. It typically finds application in large public buildings, hospitals, schools, factories, hotels, distilleries, quarries and grain dryers.

Our aim was to create a product that’s exactly the same as gas oil in terms of its physical properties. Crown’s industrial heating oil (IHO) is the perfect alternative to using gas oil to heat your business whilst making significant savings.

20% of our red diesel customers made the switch to IHO in 2018 and are already reaping the benefits

Crown Oil’s IHO is a fully rebated product (nil excise duty), meaning it is strictly prohibited for use in both on and off-road vehicles or in any static or mobile engines.

What are the benefits of industrial heating oil?

Our IHO is unique and has the following features and benefits:

  • Compatible with BS2869 Class A2 10 ppm & Class D 1000 ppm (except for Cetane Value) – British standard for heating oil
  • Same calorific value as gas oil – giving you the same heat output as red diesel but for less money
  • Same physical properties as gas oil – no burner modifications required
  • Totally miscible with gas oil – no need to empty fuel tanks of red diesel
  • Low CFPP/pour point – allows year-round summer/winter performance unlike red diesel
  • Reduced sulphur content – lowers acidic flue gas emissions by up to 50% compared to Class D gas oil
  • FAME/biodiesel free – reducing the potential for a bacterial attack on the stored fuel
  • Contains multifunctional additive – provides fuel system cleanliness and corrosion protection, reduced emissions and combustion chamber deposit control
  • Light colour, low odour and sediment-free – much cleaner than other commercially available products
