Bosch to expand range with Industrial Steam Boiler – new to the UK

Technology giant Bosch has announced plans to expand its industrial boiler portfolio with the launch of a range of steam boilers – used frequently on ‘the Continent’ but a first for Bosch UK.

The new range will consist of four models (UNIVERSAL steam boilers: U-ND/U-HD, U-MB, U-LS and ZFR), each of which is suitable for liquid and gaseous fuels.

The question on every business owner/developer’s mind will be: what are the benefits of a steam boiler? – What makes a steam boiler preferable to the standard industrial boiler?

There are three main things:

Firstly, the steam boilers in the Bosch range are super compact – the large volume flame tube and the smoke tube bundle are compressed in a manner that keeps the system as condensed as possible. This makes Industrial Steam Boilers the perfect solution for smaller manufacturing businesses as well as processing companies and the service industry – any enterprise that demands small to medium volume requirements entreating a little savvy with regard to saving space.

Secondly, Industrial Steam Boilers offer efficiency on a large scale – reduction in consumption is tantamount to money saved, making steam boilers attractive to all industry, size irrelevant. The Industrial Steam Boilers in the Bosch range come equipped with flame/smoke tubes, which allows for a greater recovery of the heat contained in flue gases. This increases the energy efficiency of the boiler by seven per cent in dry running operation and up to fifteen per cent in condensing operations.

Linked to ‘efficiency’ is point number three: sustainability. Bosch’s Industrial Steam Boilers keep CO2 emissions low and thus contribute to a reduction in climate change. The modern burner systems comply with guidelines (in all countries) regarding the prevention and reduction of emissions. A completely neutral CO2 level can be achieved through the use of bio-oils or bio-gases.

Other pluses include:

  • Innovative boiler system technology, which features the likes of intuitive touchscreen controls that accommodate coherent operating logic and integrated protection functions.
  • And ‘system alliance’, which includes additional important components such as combined heat and power, heat pumps or solarthermics.

So; space, efficiency, sustainability and innovationbut the list does continue depending on the boiler in question – CLICK HERE to see further benefits and for a more detailed description on each of the four Industrial Steam Boiler models in the Bosch catalogue.

Plumbers champion water conservation in big business

Did you know that the UK is one of the least wasteful countries in the developed world when it comes to water use per capita? Only Denmark, Luxembourg and Czechoslovakia trump the UK in their efforts to save water.

America is the biggest culprit with regards to water waste, followed closely by Canada, Australia, Portugal and Italy.

Interestingly, most water usage isn’t at home; it’s in industry, commerce and agriculture – particularly farming.

If you are the manager or owner of an industrial plumbing system it is important to ensure that water is used in as economic and efficient a manner as possible – for both ethical and practical, money saving, reasons.

From a large scale industrial perspective one of the best ways to ensure minimum water waste is to check for leaks in the system, and then get them fixed. Post a hotline in bathrooms and kitchens to report leaks or water waste to facility managers or maintenance personnel. Also have maintenance personnel regularly check your facilities for leaks, drips and other water waste.

Another way to save water is to shut off water to unused areas of your facility in order to eliminate waste from leaks or unmonitored use. It is also a good idea to implement a water management plan for your facility, and then educate employees on good water habits through newsletters and posters.

A drop per second could waste up to 3000 gallons of water per year. And here’s another interesting little stat: for every leak fixed an average of 10,000 litres of water is saved per year – enough to fill over 300 baths.

Plumbers are at the forefront of the fight for safe, clean, drinking water for all. Offices and factories may not be aware that their water consumption is unnecessarily high, which is why it is important to ascertain a professional opinion and service when it comes to all things plumbing – most especially if it’s on an industrial scale.
