Stokvis boilers chosen for second Bristol University site
An ongoing programme of energy upgrades and planned replacement for properties belonging to the University of Bristol has demonstrated the versatility and economic viability of Stokvis Energy’s Econoflame boilers. Two years ago, a pair of Econoflame 6000 boilers (pictured) were installed by Mitie Engineering in the plant room supplying administration and teaching facilities, linked to the Social Sciences department, in the city’s Clifton district.
Concerns about the gas pressure available from the mains led to the boilers being derated to avoid any risk of them cutting out at times of peak demand. Instead of modulating from 76 up to 475 kW, the boilers were set to offer a range of 76 to 380 kW. Students resident in converted Georgian townhouses served by the plant room have enjoyed uninterrupted heating ever since.
