J series brochure - .PDF file.

The owner of Tewin Bury Farm Hotel in Hertfordshire — which features a series of barns and 17th-century outbuildings converted to a bar, restaurant and bedrooms — was faced with a laundry bill that was approaching £80,000 a year. As a result, Vaughan Williams began to investigate operating his own on-site laundry. He turned to Fulton to discuss his requirements for steam. 

The location didn’t have a suitable electricity supply at the site to run an all-electric laundry system, so Williams opted for an oil-fired solution after carrying out research into similar hotel laundries.

The steam system installed at the hotel is based on a Fulton J series boiler, which operates the laundry’s dry cleaning section and its larger steam laundry driers, washers and ironers. The J series is also used for the laundry’s back-up dryer and smaller roller ironer. 

With the comprehensive £200,000 laundry facility now fully operational, it is being used five days a week having secured laundry contracts from other local businesses including a golf club and hotel; and Vaughan is well on his way to meeting or bettering his five-year investment plan. 

Additionally, looking to further diversify his offering from the farm’s 700-acres of arable land, Vaughan is looking to introduce malting barley to the crops grown and, with the spare steam capacity in the Fulton-based boiler system, feels that he is already halfway to setting up his own microbrewery and using steam throughout the process.

Key benefits of product application

  • ‘The service and support from Fulton’s sales engineer during the planning stages was second-to-none,’ said Vaughan. He was so impressed with Fulton that he signed an on-going servicing and maintenance contract with the company as part of a plan to maximise its potential.
  • Fulton’s J series boilers have a simple design and robust construction from quality materials that makes the boilers ideal for arduous applications in a range of industries.
  • The tubeless design, invented by Fulton, eliminates coils and tubes traditionally used in steam raising plant and also enable the J series to raise its full steam output in just 20 minutes. 

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.
