It’s hard not to be impressed at the work our engineers undertake especially when it comes to an installation such as this.
What a beautiful building for the installation to take place at.
Now down to the main plant room. . .
Two Viessmann gas boilers installed and awaiting to be fully connected and turned on.
To an untrained eye, such as mine, even I can see the work that has gone into this Plant Room by the sheer size of the new cylinders and pipework. All the old dropping pipework is coming out to be replaced by new straight and completely secured 2 ½” iron pipework and fittings.
This not only shows the magnitude of the work involved, but that careful thought and design consideration has been made, to fit into the space available and to make all the equipment accessible and serviceable in the future. Not forgetting that until it is time to switch over to our new system the old system has to be running as the hotel is fully booked as the work continues.
The Technical Side:
I would like to give you a rundown of the equipment used in this installation:
– 2 x Viessmann-W 200 Vitodens 60kW boilers
– 2 x Viessmann Vitocell 300-B 500L Cylinder
– Viessmann Low Loss Header and insulation
– Spirotrap MBL 2 ½ “
– Spirovent Dearerator 2 ½ ”
– 2 ½” Pipework
– Controls – Weather Compensated
Our customer will have complete control of the heating and hot water system within the hotel.
The main plant room has 1 underfloor heating circuit for the conservatory, used as the dining room. Then 3 individual fully weather compensated heating circuits for the main house ground floor, 1st floor bedrooms and 2nd floor bedrooms. Meaning different temperatures and timings can be set for the different sections of the hotel.
So from an atmospheric conventionally flued system to include boilers and water heaters, they now have a balanced system with Viessmann high efficiency condensing technology with full weather compensation.
What a difference we can make!
