OIl boiler

I am installing a new oil tank (Titan ES1800 bunded) and boiler (Grant 70/90).
Is a fire valve between the two compulsory and what is a good make and model ?
Both instructions for tank and boiler refer to this valve but neither suggests where to get one.

Yes, it needs to be located outside where the supply pipe enters the building with the sensor inside the boiler casing. I should imagine the OFTEC site has chapter and verse,

I don't think there is a great choice...

Same place that you bought the boiler/tank?

good make and model?

They had to order it specially. First tank they'd ever had - as they found out when it wouldn't fit in their van to deliver it to me.
Any makes I can search for ?

http://www.bes.ltd.uk/ sell them.
The product is known as an Oil Fire Shut-Off Valve.
Part no 10810 has 1.5m lead.
The phial / sensor should be inside the boiler casing. The valve itself should be outside.

Dunno - never looked at the make - I just go to the plubers merchant and ask for an oil fire check valve!

model
OFTEC Standard requires a remote sensing firestop valve with the valve mounted OUTSIDE the premises. Suitable type is Teddington type KBB available with varying capillary lengths from 1.5 metres up to 10 metres. They can be obtained from your local Plumb Centre branch among other places. (You may have to order)

See above
