Midtherm Engineering flues plant room with biomass boilers

Published:  12 April, 2006

flues
The flue systems for five boilers, including two biomass boilers, in this grass-roofed plant room in Kent were built by Midtherm Engineering.

A copper-clad, custom-built roof terminal to marry in with the grass roof of a new-build plant room at the Betteshanger Development at Sholden in Kent tops out a complex flue system serving three pressure-jet gas boilers and two bio-mass boilers.

The flue system was developed by Midtherm Engineering for Ecoenergy of Kettering.

The terminal was made using a mild-steel framework, wrapped with a 3 mm copper outer cladding and custom shaped to meet aesthetic requirements. It is 1.5 m in diameter and 2 m high and fixed to a heavy-duty roof plate.

The installation was particularly challenging due to the complex nature of the roof arrangement and the configuration of the flues in the plant room.
