Fulton has supplied three dual-fuel-fired, skid-mounted boiler systems — a 30J and two 40Js — to cavity wall insulation specialist Domestic and General Insulation (DGI) and its wholly-owned processing subsidiary Thermabead.

Insulation specialist DGI manufactures its own cavity wall bead at its Worcester-based Thermabead facility, where the first Fulton skid-mounted steam boiler system — the 30J — was installed.

The first of the 40Js is being used by a new manufacturing facility in Manchester, with a third production facility planned that will utilise the second 40J.

The decision to specify skid-mounted systems was based on Fulton’s ability to respond to DGI’s extremely short lead times and the need to move into each facility within a week. For this reason, the specification and design also included flanged connections for the pipe work to enable the systems to be easily installed.

Modulating burners will be retrofitted to help reduce energy costs. However, even without modulating burners Fulton’s boilers are proving easy to control and linear in their steam output.

Benefits of application

  • Mark Aston of DGI said Fulton has always reacted positively to any issues, even attending call-outs at weekends
  • Aston describes the boiler systems as ‘tremendously reliable, simple in operation and easy to understand’
  • Fulton also offers DGI engineers training at the point of installation
  • Series J boilers are built in Britain to BS2790 1992 Class 1 and are covered by a five-year warranty on the pressure vessel

The Fulton name has been synonymous with steam since the company first introduced the vertical tubeless steam boiler in 1949 and Fulton was established in Bristol in 1966. Fulton is still one of the world’s leading manufacturers, producing an unrivalled range of multi-fuel steam boilers. But increasingly these are ordered by customers as part of bespoke turnkey systems designed to meet exacting specifications.

Today Fulton Ltd is an important design and manufacturing base in Fulton’s global network that also includes production facilities in the US and China. The company’s UK facility makes it possible to manufacture products more efficiently and to assemble completed units for whenever and wherever they are needed throughout the UK and in export markets.

Once just a steam boiler manufacturer, Fulton now specialises in ready-to-ship skid-mounted and fully packaged boiler plant rooms to meet the current demand for off-site fabrication. The company puts great emphasis on providing sales and application advice and a full commissioning and after-sales service to a growing customer base in hospital and healthcare facilities, food and beverage processing, laundries and other applications.

Design and manufacturing resources are shared and co-ordinated around the world, but no matter where your product originates it will always be produced to the highest quality in a facility that is wholly owned and managed by the Fulton Group, which remains a privately owned family business.

Fulton’s heating and hot-water systems can be delivered as fully prefabricated plant rooms or complete skid-mounted units, built to fit a prepared location and to connect direct to your services.

Using the latest CAD equipment, its design team can accommodate the most sophisticated engineering specifications in surprisingly compact spaces, locating components in the best possible position to suit the installation.

In every sense, today’s Fulton boiler systems are solutions that fit the requirements of the modern age of steam.
