Birmingham-based Midland Linen Services has invested in another 60J vertical steam boiler from Fulton in an effort to provide a disruption-free service to its customers.

The company — which provides table and bed linen to universities, hotels, clubs and restaurants — installed its first Fulton boiler, a 60E vertical gas-fired system, in 1985 to provide steam to heat water for the washing machines and produce steam for the calendar ironers and garment presses.

In 1995 and 1997 two more Fulton 60E boilers were installed to meet increasing demand, and in 2001 Midland Linen Services’ original 60E was replaced with Fulton’s latest 60J vertical steam boiler.

As part of its boiler replacement policy, the company recently decided to purchase a second 60J boiler to replace the 60E gas-fired steam boiler installed in 1995.

Key benefits of product application

  • Jeffrey Yap, managing director of Midland Linen Services, said that the company has always stuck with Fulton thanks to its good reputation and its excellent understanding of the laundry industry.
  • Fulton’s ‘J’ series boilers eliminate the coils and tubes traditionally used in steam-raising plant and enable full steam output to be raised in just 20 minutes.
  • Thanks to their simple design and robust construction, the ‘J’ series steam boilers are particularly suitable for laundry applications.

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.
