Steam boiler packages
25 January 2013
As part of a continuous improvement programme at its off-site decontamination units, Nuffield Health has recently installed Fulton skid-mounted steam boiler packages with remote monitoring capabilities at six sites.
Each of the sites contains a skidmounted package consisting of three 60J boilers plus ancillaries. All 18 boilers are remotely monitored by a Fulton-designed telemetry system, which complies with the current PGS2 standard. The system is capable of reporting critical alarm conditions such as primary and secondary low water, flame failure, high pressure and high water for each of the three dual-fuel 60J units per site; two of which are firing constantly with one on standby.
The system also monitors signals from digital and analogue meters for gas, electric and water supplies and steam pressure. If a critical alarm condition is raised, the boilers will automatically shut down and the telemetry system will notify Nuffield site engineers via BT Redcare.
