Fulton has provided a reconditioned steam boiler to a laundry service company after a fire destroyed its production facility and the company was unable to operate.

Atlantic Linen Services provides linen hire and laundry services to a wide range of businesses in the catering, hospitality and leisure sectors, as well as local authorities, educational establishments and charitable organisations.

In 2007, the steam generator at Atlantic Linen’s original laundry facility failed, leaving the company without its source of steam.

However, following a call to boiler manufacturer Fulton, a reconditioned 30E steam boiler was supplied and installed within just a few days and Atlantic Linen was able to restart operation.

While installing the replacement boiler Fulton discovered a wet steam issue with the original steam generator, which they eliminated.

Within 18 months of the replacement 30E steam boiler being installed, Atlantic Linen was forced to relocate after its premises were destroyed by fire following a spontaneous combustion incident.

Once again, Atlantic Linen decided chose to specify a Fulton boiler and some quick discussions and initial negotiations regarding the immediate needs of the business produced a prompt response from Fulton.

A new, ex-stock RBC1850 horizontal steam boiler was immediately offered; the burner was modified and the system was available within weeks.

This quick response played an important part in establishing Atlantic Linen’s new larger laundry production facility.

The RBC boiler features automatic TDS blowdown control, which besides supplying the steam to heat five washer extractors and two large roll ironers, also provides steam for the building’s HVAC system via fan-assisted steam batteries.

Fulton was also able to save the previously installed 30E boiler, which was re-commissioned and now acts as a back-up during planned shutdown and maintenance.

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.
