Small space boiler installation  – MRM Worldwide

Sometimes, the installation process is like a puzzle – figuring out how to make the best use of the available space in order to ensure a system that is as cost-effective, safe and efficient as possible. The team at CH Systems was recently commissioned for a boiler installation by MRM Worldwide, which turned out to be an interesting challenge.
The work took place in a ‘package plant room’ that was built and assembled off site then craned up into place and essentially “plugged in”. The seven Keston boilers populating this very tight space had reached the end of their serviceable life and needed replacing but due compact nature of this plant room, our only option was to fit four Keston Heat 55 Boilers in the space left when we removed six of the original Keston 170 Boilers.

Keston’s Heat 55 Boiler was the perfect option for this type condensed space as it has been designed to be light weight and offer flexible installation solutions. Every component within the Heat 55 has been carefully selected to ensure maximum reliability and longevity. With simplicity in mind the boiler features a large back lit screen and simple button controls, allowing the user to get the most from their new boiler installation.

Also included in the installation was a compact, fully integrated Flamco Pressurisation unit – again, perfect for a small are. Have a look at the pics below to get a sense of the space we were working with:

High pressure gas purge – MCSBS

In order to ensure the efficient and effective functioning of a Hamworthy Gas Fired Water Heater with an onsite gas carcass running at 35mb (not common place), the CH Systems team opted to decommission the gas line to fit a local Governor serving the water heater. Once the pipework modifications were carried out we returned the pipework into service and conducted a tightness test as well as a purge back to Natural Gas.

Decommissioning, tightness testing and purging are carried out on existing or new gas pipework installations to ensure that the industrial and commercial gas pipework is safe for use, or continued use, and will not be rendered a hazard or cause an unsafe situation. The high pressures produced by this particular system required both experience and skill on the part of our engineers. See the below pics for an idea of what the job entailed:

Top tips for business gas safety

According to the Gas Safety (Instillation & Use) Regulations of 1998…

“It’s the duty of every employer or self-employed person to ensure that any gas appliance, installation pipe work or flue installed at any place of work under their control is maintained in a safe condition so as to prevent risk or injury to any person.”

As a business owner, you’d have known this – per logic if not per regulation.  A reminder is never a bad thing though, right? And it’s good to know that the law takes our safety seriously. Keeping company employees and premises safe includes a couple of simple steps, check it out:

  • Appliances should be serviced annually
  • All services, installations and repairs should be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer
  • Keep a record of any work that’s done
  • Replace your CO alarms every five-to-seven years
  • Consider a service plan if your business relies on heating or gas appliances.

A business gas safety check is an inspection or service of your commercial gas appliance or boiler by a Gas Safe registered engineer, who will check your appliance or system to make sure its running safely and efficiently. This should be done on a yearly basis, and will also include:

  • A safety inspection of your metre and all visible pipework
  • A tightness test on your entire gas installation
  • A boiler service
  • A Gas Safety certificate once the inspection is complete.

Boiler Chemical Clean

We always enjoy repeat work with our regular clients and a recent commission to carry out a chemical clean on nine Hamworthy Wessex 220 M Modular boilers for one of our regulars in Luton was no exception. The boilers were under-performing in efficiency, having not been cleaned in some time and the team at CH Systems was happy to revitalise these massive pieces of machinery to proper working order.

The heat exchangers within these boilers are in excess of 100kg and, as such, required lifting equipment to safely handle them. We’re always up for a challenge, and all nine boilers were cleaned over the course of 2 weeks and put back into service for our client in the most timely fashion possible.

To get maximum efficiency from your boiler, no matter how big or small, it’s important to schedule regular (yearly – as per industry standard) maintenance checks; this will enable your heating professional to fix any problems before they escalate, and end up costing you more money!
