As most products made in German the ethos is on quality. The heat exchanger is made of stainless steel, which is without doubt the best material for exchangers in boilers.
The heat exchanger is a key component in a boiler that transfers the energy of gas to heat the water.
One of the unique design features of all Viesmmann Vitodnes boilers is the Inox Radial heat exchanger made from high grade Stainless Steel. The spiral wound tube, with a rectangular profile is designed to ensure a laminar flow without a boundary layer for the best heat transfer possible. This self-cleaning exchanger is so reliable that it is guaranteed fir ten years against corrosion.
It is believed to date no Viessmann Vitodens heat exchanger has been replaced due to corrosion problems which makes these boilers exceptionally reliable and as such are regarded as the “Rolls Royce” of boilers.
