Stokvis replaces 30-year-old boiler at Holiday Inn

After nearly 30 years’ service at the Holiday Inn Guildford, one of the original Stokvis Econoflame R18 gas-fired boilers has been replaced with the modern equivalent — an Econoflame R6539 modulating gas-fired boiler. The boiler plant is maintained by Economy Heating Services, which recommended the replacement boiler.

The new boiler takes the place of one of the two original boilers, which needed replacing. It has been set up as the lead boiler to meet the bulk of the load for the 168 bedrooms, kitchens, conference facilities and the leisure complex with pool and Jacuzzi.

The ground-floor boiler room still contains the original pair of Stokvis Econoplate heat exchangers and a later buffer vessel for the hot-water service.
