Chartway Industrial Services are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of precision parts for heating and plumbing, serving as the main supplier for the country’s major boiler manufacturers.
Chartway approached us with a desire for greater fuel security – they felt that energy companies’ continuous price hikes were unwarranted and held businesses to ransom. Their offices were originally heated by a combination boiler, while the manufacturing floor was heated by inefficient roof slung gas powered unit heaters.
Biomass boilers were the obvious answer. We explained how the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) worked and how they as a business could benefit. They’d receive payments from the Government based on how many kwh of heat they produced. We projected that this payment could be in the region of £8,136, giving an ROI of 5-6 years at today’s gas prices.
Sequencer controller for ultimate efficiency
We installed two 36kw biomass boilers which were set up to run in cascade. This means that when a demand for heat is made, the boilers turn on, and as the heating load decreases, the number of boilers running decreases. This is known as a sequencer system and it increases efficiency, as just the required amount of energy is being produced when wanted.
Wireless programmable thermostats
For extra comfort in the offices, Siemens wireless programmable thermostats controlled the radiators now powered by biomass. The manufacturing areas are now warmed by 6 heated water unit heaters, broken down into zones wirelessly controlled by employees.
Our client says…
“We decided to upgrade our heating system in early 2013. Initially we explored conventional means of heating before deciding on a greener system in the form of a biomass boiler. Throughout the process we were kept informed and on the ins and outs of completely new form of technology to us.
“We found Lime-Circle to be enthusiastic and knowledgeable both throughout and following the installation; any tweaking to the system required was done quickly and efficiently. The Managing Director Chris Messom is always on hand to offer guidance and support should it be required.
“Based on our experience we would recommend Lime-Circle to anyone considering a biomass boiler in the future. We are delighted with our greener, more efficient form of heating in our offices and warehouse. ”
