JBC were contacted by Buckley Foods to build, supply and commission a new 1.7-ton gas fired Unical, containerised boiler house to replace an old upstanding Fulton boiler.
The customer required a three-pass reverse wet back fire tube steam boiler and blowdown vessel which would comply with PED 97/23/EC Directive which would be suitable for liquid and gaseous fuels with a steam production range from 350 up to 5000 kg/h and a design pressure of 12 or 15 bar, complete with safety features for automatic operation.
To achieve the customers’ objectives, the boiler was designed with the following objectives:
Maximum heat output of 681kw
Steam production (with supply 80°C water) 650kg/h
Design Pressure 12 bar
Working Pressure 10 bar(g)
A blowdown vessel was also required to provide a safe expansion and cooling of boiler blowdown with a total water volume of 500 litres and a design pressure of 7 bar.
JBC delivered the containerised boilerhouse to the site and subsequently commissioned the boiler and blowdown vessel to the customers delight.
