Lochinvar boilers heat historic Glasgow office

Lochinvar, Glasgow, Baltic Chambers, G8 Energy Solutions, TTB boilers

Banbury-based Lochinvar has supplied three high efficiency, condensing boilers to the newly refurbished Baltic Chambers in Glasgow. Originally built by the Victorian developer Duncan McNaughton, it is a familiar landmark close to Glasgow Central railway station. The six-storey building retains many of its original features including its striking façade with ornate stonework and mosaic floor tiled entrance foyer.

Three Lochinvar TTB 410 gas-fired boilers providing a total of 1.2MW of heat output were specified because of their efficiency, flexibility and ease of operation. These fully condensing, gas-fired, stainless steel, floor-standing boilers have low NOx emissions and can achieve efficiencies up to 95.5% gross CV.

Their ability to modulate during operation was of particular interest to the contractor G8 Energy Solutions of Hamilton. The three-boiler modular installation offers a 24:1 turndown allowing the system to respond precisely to changes in demand while minimising energy consumption – a particularly useful feature in a building occupied by multiple tenants with long, varied working hours.

The contractor also found that the boilers were easy to manoeuvre during installation as they are relatively lightweight and are fitted with castors for ease of handling and positioning avoiding the need for lifting equipment. In addition, they feature onboard controls, twin burners for built-in standby and a highly reliable triple chamber, stainless steel heat exchanger.

Lochinvar’s TTB boilers are suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial heating applications and come in outputs ranging from 418 to 576 kW.
