A dilapidation survey at Leasowes High School by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council led to the upgrading of the inefficient LPHW and HWS equipment. The existing atmospheric heating boilers were replaced with six Mikrofill Ethos 130 kW wall-mounted condensing boilers with an overall 60:1 modulation ratio right down to 13 kW.

The hot-water requirements of the kitchen and main block area are now provided by a Mikrofill Extreme 500 l loading cylinder. Fed via an indirect primary circuit of 80/50°C, the loading cylinder optimises the boiler condensing mode and produces in excess of 2500 l/h at 60°C.

The system was designed by the council’s engineers and installed by TDR Mechanical Services.

The site manager for Leasowes said, ‘The upgrade of the heating system is an integral part of the continuing improvements being made here at Leasowes High School. I would like to thank both Mikrofill Systems and Dudley Metropolitan Council for all their help during the design and installation phase; collectively this has made a huge difference to the school.’
