Blended in the UK by our World Fuel Services colleagues at Henty Oil, Furnaceflame™ has been developed for use as a direct replacement wherever regular gas oil is being used for heating or drying purposes. It is ideal for use as a replacement for Gas Oil in schools, colleges, hotels, grain dryers, factories, hospitals, breweries and distilleries.
Alternative industrial heating products can often comprise of components derived from waste oils or contain biodiesel. Such products increase the risk of plant failure due to fouling, reduce the efficiency of heat transfer leading to increased fuel consumption and are also the main causes of storage tank contamination resulting in expensive tank cleaning costs.
Furnaceflame™ is different. Blended entirely from virgin components sourced from UK and European refiners, Furnaceflame™ can be used as a drop-in replacement for gas oil across a wide range of burner and furnace applications without any compromise in performance and is winter grade specification all year round reducing the risk of waxing and costly downtime.
Fully miscible with gas oil in all proportions, no plant modifications are needed to switch to Furnaceflame™ and there is no need to drain the existing oil in your tank.
Regular gas oil is more expensive to produce than Furnaceflame™ as it must meet exacting standards for use in off-road mobile plant. Further, gas oil is also subject to additional government levies for road fuel which do not apply to Furnaceflame™. Therefore Furnaceflame™ can be offered at a lower price than regular gas oil, meaning significant cost savings for your business.
Furnaceflame™ technical data sheet
At Linton, we appreciate that all home heating customers are searching for the best deal for them in terms of service, products and price. Purchasing Premium Kerosene from Linton assures you of all three.
Premium Kerosene undoubtedly delivers greater value for money overall when compared to standard kerosene through a combination of benefits to your boiler or cooker, which include; improved boiler efficiency, increased fuel shelf life, reduced carbon deposits and reduced sediment build up.
Gas Oil, or Red Diesel as it is commonly known, is used in many off road applications. The product is available in delivered quantities from 208 litre drums to 36,000 litre tanker loads.
As the name suggests, the product is red in colour due to a marker dye used to distinguish it from road diesel as the product receives a substantial HMRC rebate and must not be used in road going vehicles.
Since 2011, the product has been required to be virtually sulphur free, meeting the road diesel specification for sulphur (10 parts per million) in accordance with EU emissions targets. These changes have for the most part resulted in higher quality fuel.
The requirement of FAME (biodiesel) within the product in order for it to comply with the legislation, will not diminish the performance capability of diesel engines, however, special consideration should be given where the product remains static in storage for long periods of time. Further details can be found on the Tank Maintenance page
In such cases where the fuel is ultimately used in diesel engine applications Linton recommends the use of Exocet additives to prolong the fuels quality and reduce the risk of spoilt fuel. For heating and drying applications FurnaceFlame™ should be used.
From Mid-October to Mid-March each year, Linton automatically adjusts our products at no extra cost to supply winter grade gas oil, reducing the risk of costly down time and disruption for our customers.

The drive for a cleaner world with reduced air pollution has improved fuel standards significantly over the past decade. Despite the huge benefits gained by these changes to fuel products, there have been a number of associated concerns with regards to fuel storage which has given rise to fuel additives.
Many of the issues are a direct consequence of the increased use of biofuel in fuel products and include:
Water pick up in storage tank that can be prevented through regular use of Anti-Bug Additives.
Defective winter operation of machinery and filter plugging that can be prevented through seasonal use of Anti-Wax Additives.
Power Loss to vehicles that can be prevented through use of Diesel Power Restorer Additives.
Blocked filters and sludge build up in tank that can be prevented through regular use of Gas Oil Extra Additives.
Reduced shelf life of fuel being stored for long periods such as back-up generators can be significantly extended through use of Fuel Store Plus additives.
Linton recommends the use of additives on a frequent basis to reduce the potential for fuel related issues arising. Speak to our team for further information on how to retain your fuels quality.
