Bath Ales is upgrading its existing steam boiler with a new RBC1500 horizontal boiler from Fulton Boilers to meet increased demand.
Bath Ales has used Fulton’s 60J vertical steam boilers since brewing began in 1995; and steam has always been used for each stage of the brewing process.
“With increased demand comes a requirement to upgrade existing services and, naturally, we’re upgrading our 60J Fulton boiler to one of its much larger RBC1500 horizontal boilers,” said Bath Ales managing director Roger Jones.
With outputs ranging from 957 to 4787 kg/h and a maximum working pressure of 10.34 bar, Fulton’s horizontal RBC steam boiler has been designed to provide superior performance, long life and low maintenance.
It is efficient, safe and reliable and contains many unique design features that make it one of the most efficient and durable boilers available.
It was originally developed in response to customer demand for capacities higher than the 2348 kg/h maximum for the company’s vertical range and can be specified with matched multi-stage oil, modulating gas or dual-fuel burners as standard, or with alternative burners on request.
All RBCs meet current and anticipated legislation, have been engineered to provide a substantial performance margin and are constructed to BS2790, 1992 Class 1 standard.
