Well, this is out guide to everything you should know about this fuel.

What is Premium C1 Paraffin?

Premium C1 paraffin is produced from crude oil, as part of the distillation process. This is similar to the production of other fuel oils such as diesel and petrol. As a result, it has very clean burning characteristics, and can maintain steady high temperatures for long periods of time.

What can Premium C1 Paraffin be used to heat?

Premium C1 paraffin has some excellent heating qualities, and this means it can be used for a variety of purposes both commercially and domestically. These include:

  • Greenhouse heaters for growers (Parasene Heaters)
  • Workshop and garage space heaters.
  • Domestic inverter heaters (without external flue).
  • Cleaning car and motorbike parts.
  • Sterilising tools and equipment.
  • Camping stoves and lamps.
  • Weed Killers / Flamethrowers.
  • Printing / Typography.

In addition, premium C1 paraffin is also compatible with all known paraffin heaters.

Why should you choose premium C1 Paraffin for heating?

There are a number of reasons to consider using a high quality paraffin for heating. These include:

  • A high heating output- paraffin has a high heat output so it can be great to heat spaces that often get cold, like the garage or workshop.
  • A clean burning fuel- premium C1 paraffin is a clean burning fuel so you ca enjoy the heat without toxic particles or chemicals entering your lungs.
  • Available to purchase in a range of quantities- premium C1 paraffin can be bought in large bulk deliveries or smaller 200 litre barrels. This means that no matter what size space you need to heat, C1 paraffin could be the perfect solution.
