ap 30 5In response to demand for boilers with capacities greater than the 4,787kg/h of its RBCrange, Fulton Limitedis launching the FBrange ofrugged, robust and reliable horizontal firetube boilersin Europe. The introduction means that Fulton can now offer customers a range of traditional three-pass, wetback firetube boilers that can be configured for gas, oil or dual-fuel installations and for either steam or hot water applications.

Commenting on the launch of the new horizontal firetube range, Fulton’s sales and marketing manager Carl Knight says: “The FB range is ideal for a variety of applications including large-scalelaundriesthat currently rely on Fulton horizontal boilers to provide a steady supply of steam for ironers,presses, washers and tunnels; as well as companies requiring steam or hot water for space heating; food, plastics and chemical processing;and pharmaceutical and bio-fuel production.”


The eightboilers in Fulton’s newhighly-efficient FB range includetwo FB-S models with outputs of 4,699kg/h and 6,266kg/h and operating pressures of12.8barg, and six FB-C models with steam outputs from 7,810kg/h to 25,000kg/h at 10.34 barg. All models can deliver up to 20 barg on demand.

All boilers have a large steam disengagement areamaking them an ideal choice for low pressure steam applications; and fully modulating burners provide optimum performance to meet varying load demand. Compared to conventional controls, the microprocessor-based burner control system in Fulton’s FB rangedeliversimproved functionality including automatic burner sequencing, system status function, system or self diagnostics and trouble shooting.

All models feature high-density insulation for very low heat loss; a corrugated furnace that maximisesboiler efficiency and longevity while minimising thermal stress; an exhaust vent conveniently located at the back of the boiler; and a hand-welded assembly.In addition, the high-mass pressure vessels are covered by a three year warranty.

Options include a five year warranty on the pressure vessel; automotive feed water and condensate return systems; and a Fulton-designed and manufactured flue-gas economiser to improve boiler efficiency and save energy.
