Do You Need A KBB Fire Valve?

KBB Installation Diagram
You need a Universal KBB® Fire Valve if:

  1. You are installing a new oil-burning appliance.
  2. You have an old boiler which doesn't already have a KBB fitted *.

* You can easily tell if your boiler has a KBB fitted: If you have one it will be fitted to the incoming fuel pipe near where it enters the building.

Although Oftec requires that all new installations of oil-burners include a KBB for safety, installations older than 10 years may be missing this important component. You can find an Oftec registered engineer near you at Oftec's Website
