Midsomer Norton

This Plant Room upgrade in Midsomer Norton required the removal of an old floor standing shell and tube boiler, which was fitted with a still-functional Nu-Way burner. We also removed a gas fired Andrews water heater and Stockvis Domestic hot water plate exchanger.

As you can see from the pictures below, it is extremely important to inspect flues during services as the inner wall of the flue had completely collapsed and was blocking the flue way.

These appliances served a Leisure Centre so we had to maintain services for the duration of the project. We fitted 4no Remeha boilers complete with frames, a low loss header and mixing pot, which then goes out to feed the system. The low temperature hot water system (LTHW) was installed in Geberit Low carbon steel Mapress and the gas was fitted in Stainless Steel. We also had to pipe up the new air handling unit which was replaced as the previous model had no heat recovery option.

Overall, this project was completed punctually with minimal ‘down time’ to the centre, which will soon see the benefits of a more energy efficient system.


Nu-way Enertech receives top safety accreditation

As an approved installer for Nu-way boilers and equipment, CH Systems is pleased to report that Nu-way Enertech has recently been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

With more than 263 major clients and over 23000 contractor members, Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme that recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. The scheme is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only – via a website.

Nu-way’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the desire to have a uniform and recognised standard across the business, and accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts – as reported on the company Nu-Way website. Nu-way is currently credited as the UK’s largest distributor of boiler spare parts, and supplies 70 countries around the globe. Some of the company’s most recent clients have included major players such as Kelloggs, Shell, Rolls Royce and the M.O.D.

John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor, said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place. More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Nu-way Enertech has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”

So basically, should your business need to invest in a heating system – gas, oil or duel fuel – Nu-way Enertech is a good option.
