Garment factory reduces fuel bills by 30%

HydroflowAn Indonesian garment producer has reduced its fuel consumption by a third, simply by improving the water supply to its boiler.

The Cathay Murni Garment Factory has been using a 20-year-old steam boiler to supply hot water for washing and steam for ironing.  The factory draws its water supply from a bore hole, but the water has a hardness of 200 parts per million. In an attempt to prevent limescale build-up on the boiler

Does the new fuel saving steam boiler live up to its reputation?

Yorkshireman 2Earlier in 2007, Byworth Boilers announced the launch of their new fuel efficient steam boiler.  It was claimed that the Byworth Yorkshireman2 steam boiler is the most fuel efficient boiler of its type due not only to unique XiD boiler tube, but by the quality and integrity of design and engineering.  Fuel savings will vary according to the efficiency of the existing boilers, but can be between 2 and 20%.

With Gas prices predicted to rise yet again during 2008, many forward thinking companies have averted the impact of this increase by investing in this latest boiler technology.  A leading mushroom producer in Lancashire, Drinkwater Mushrooms, not only purchased his sixth Byworth boiler to keep up with spiralling expansion, but purchased the first Yorkshireman2. So impressed were they by the significant reduction in fuel oil usage and the rear end temperature (over 40degC lower than similar boilers) that discussions are taking place regarding a second installation.

Wellman Robey have the ultimate

Wellman BoilerAnnual maintenance and strip downs happen every year and planning is the key, working out when you can fit in that all-important service, is a vital part of maintaining a healthy boiler house, but can you really afford to have the downtime?

Novartis vaccines and diagnostic plant at Speke in Liverpool relies heavily on its three boiler houses, accommodating various sizes and makes of boiler. When your prime business is manufacturing vaccines to prevent and cure diseases, ease suffering and enhance quality of life, you need steam, you need quality steam, and you need it running. So how do you plan for that all essential maintenance?

Byworth Boilers

The Yorkshireman 2Byworth Boilers are aware that boiler users are increasingly suffering from rising fuel bills, and with this in mind the boiler manufacturer embarked on a 2 year project in conjunction with Leeds University.  The brief was, by rigorous testing, to ascertain and prove the optimum configuration of shell, furnace, and tubes for maximum boiler efficiency and low emissions. 

The project almost came to an early close when on testing the existing Byworth Yorkshireman range of boilers, it was found that efficiency results for this range were actually higher than previously claimed and better than similar boilers available.  However, rather than resting on laurels, the company persevered with the research which has culminated in the launch of the Yorkshireman2 boiler range.

Industrial thermal oil heater TPC & EPC

Thermal Oil HeaterBABCOCK WANSON is leader in the field of the design and the installation of thermal oil heaters TPC and EPC (high outputs, service contracts on demand, compliance with environmental standards).

User advantages :
reliability and rugged long life construction ;
guarantee on both the burner and the boiler ;
efficiency, which can be higher than 92% over the operating range ;
investments and maintenance costs reduced ;
optimised heat balance, associates the high output of the boiler with very low thermal losses on the distribution system which means very high overall plant efficiency ;
very short response time, low inertia ;
optimisation of the thermal coefficient of transfer of the boundary layers ;
low pressure of operation normally no more than total system resistance (10 bar max) for high temperature
