MHS Boilers has supplied ten Ultramax 65kW wall-mounted condensing boilers and ten Xpressflo 300 litre condensing hot water generators to the University of Glamorgan, Pontypridd. As part of a £20 million redevelopment of the Treforest campus Halls of Residence, the boilers will be installed in five plant rooms and provide heating and hot water to over 450 new en-suite rooms.
The consulting engineers were The Hicks Titley Partnership from Bridgend. Commenting on the project, partner Mike Titley, said: “After close consultation with the MHS sales team, the Ultramax boilers and Xpressflo water heaters were clearly the best products for all five plant rooms. Not only did they easily meet the performance specification, their reliability and compact design made them ideal for the installation.”
Perfect for applications where walls are inaccessible or plant room is restricted, the frame mounted Ultramax WM cascade systems are designed to make installation and commissioning simple. Mounted on a steel frame, and with castors to make positioning easy, the frame mounted boilers are slim enough to fit through a standard width door and light enough to be manoeuvred by two people.
The Xpressflo range of hot water generators delivers high volumes of hot water and consistently high efficiency thanks to their inventive design. A gas-fired, low-emission, condensing unit is used in conjunction with stainless steel storage vessels of 300 or 500 litres.
Both units have a powerful heat input of 60kW to deliver up to 650 litres of hot water. Even though the primary function of Xpressflo is to deliver efficiently generated hot water, it can also deliver a central heating service of up to 43kW where there is no hot water load.
