Fulton has supplied an oil-fired, 60J vertical steam boiler to Westcountry Smokehouses to help cope with current demand and future-proof the company against further production increases.

Westcountry Smokehouses is a producer of fine cured and smoked foods.

Having secured a contract to supply cooked duck, fish and ready meals for a supermarket chain, Westcountry upgraded its facility by installing a second processing line and, based on its experience from the first line, again chose steam for the cooking process.

The company decided to replace its current electric steam boiler with an oil-fired, 60J vertical steam boiler.

Following a meeting and site survey with Fulton’s area manager, Andy Elverd, an oil-fired 60J vertical steam boiler was specified and is now providing steam for the existing processing line, and new ovens and vat on the new cooking line.

For the new line, steam from the 60J boiler is used to heat the vat in which sauces are being cooked for use in supermarket ready meals.

Steam is also being used for both new ovens, which are dedicated to cooking either poultry or fish.

Fulton’s J series vertical gas- and oil-fired steam boilers include eight models covering outputs from 96-960kg/h.

Their tubeless design eliminates the coils and tubes traditionally used in steam raising plant and enables the series J to raise its full steam output in 20 minutes.

The simple design, high-quality materials and robust construction make them suitable for arduous applications in a range of industries, including food processing.

The series J range is manufactured to BS 2790 1992 Class 1 and meets all relevant European and British Standards.

Pressure vessels are covered by a five-year warranty and each boiler is fully tested prior to delivery, commissioned by Fulton engineers where appropriate and backed by Fulton’s nationwide service and spares operation.

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.
