A shining beacon of success

MHS Boilers has supplied two 905kW ADI-NOx HT floor standing boilers to the Beacon Building on the Stafford campus at Staffordshire University.

Replacing two inefficient and ageing units, the new boilers supply heating and hot water to a variety of areas in the building including a café, two restaurants, general teaching and lecturing rooms, offices and the student shop.

The consulting engineers were Stoke-based Burgess Design Associates. Commenting on the project, Trevor Burgess said: “We needed to specify new boilers that were compatible with the existing flue system arrangement, as well as the small footprint available in the plant room. After contacting MHS Boilers, we identified the ADI-NOx units as a great option, as not only did they meet the performance criteria, but their reliability and compact design made them perfect for the installation.

The ADI-NOx range successfully solves the problems caused by replacing old atmospheric boilers in compact plant rooms. With outputs from 68 to 905kW, the high efficiency boilers are designed to resolve difficulties in limited installation space, with incredibly compact dimensions that belie their powerful outputs. For example, models of up to 110kW output are only 350mm wide making access and retrofitting much easier.

Compact dimensions and the ability to operate directly with 11°C ?t system design conditions are key features of the new ADI-NOx boilers. Three different versions are included in the range which covers a standard type fabricated from carbon steel and intended for the replacement market, plus two versions with stainless steel heat exchangers; a low temperature version which is tolerant to condensation and returns higher efficiencies, and for those applications that demand highest efficiency performance there is the condensing version.
