project was to install biomass boilers to provide a renewable heating source for
the poultry sheds. 3 x 199kw HDG compact 200 woodchip boilers were
installed to heat 3 x 5000ltr heat stores which in turn supplies ceiling
suspended space heaters within the 3 poultry sheds which are capable of holding
50,000 chickens each.
first stage of this project was to install mapress stainless steel 54mm flow and return pipes
in each shed and to connect up the space heaters.
of the flow and return pipes had to run underground to the purpose built boiler
house (picture on the right). The picture below on the left shows the
transition fitting used when pipe work changed from Rehau pre-insulated
underground plastic pipework to stainless steel.
the boilers and heat stores were in place we connected them up using the same
stainless steel and press fit fittings as in the sheds. The picture on the far
right hand side shows the thermal store and the 3 pictures to the left show the
boilers (green), 300ltr expansion vessels (red), 5000ltr thermal store (grey)
and all of the connecting pipework.
The system was then commissioned and is now fully functional.
