R.W. Beckett becomes the first manufacturer to test and certify that all its existing burners are rated for R20 fuel, which is a 20% renewable diesel. The certification of Beckett’s entire lineup of burners now provides dealers and their technicians a way to introduce a green fuel solution without sacrificing their customers’ burner performance. This announcement reinforces Beckett’s ongoing commitment to alternative, green fuels, as the company already provides a Biodiesel Retrofit Kit that can be installed on Beckett model AF and AFG burners for the use of B20 biodiesel fuels.

This combination of renewable diesel and biodiesel fuel burner solutions under one brand provides a green solution for the market regardless of their choice in sustainable fuels. “We are excited and proud to approve the 20% blend of oxygen-free renewable diesel (R20) to all new and the existing installed base of Beckett burners along with current warranty coverage up to R20,” says Fred Hunt, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We see renewable diesel as a breakthrough that offers oil heat the lowest carbon footprint option available.”
