Maidstone Hospital is installing two further Easiheat steam-to-water plate heat exchanger packages from Spirax Sarco to replace existing calorifiers in the main hospital building.

Since 2000, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust has installed six Easiheat units in various extensions around the original hospital in Maidstone, which was built in the 1980s.

Until now, the main building has relied on conventional shell and tube calorifiers to provide space heating.

However, these are being replaced by two 1,000kW Easiheat systems, which use a steam-to-water plate heat exchanger (PHE) as part of its design.

These units will be key, as they heat the largest part of the hospital.

Spirax Sarco claims the typical Easiheat PHE package is around seven per cent more efficient than the equivalent shell and tube unit, due to a combination of reduced heat losses, better controllability and improved heat transfer efficiency.

Spirax Sarco Easiheat packages provide a low-maintenance, space-saving system for instant heating and domestic hot water.

Installation is quick because the complete package only needs to be hooked up to the site’s services and commissioned, saving the time and costs involved in building conventional heating systems on site.

Furthermore, the whole package is factory tested and guaranteed to work as specified, eliminating the risk of compatibility problems between components.
