A BRIEF LOOK BACK AT SOME OF OUR PREVIOUSLY FEATURED PROJECTS
SHELLEY COLLEGE GOES EXTREME WITH MIKROFILL
Shelley College, (part of the SHARE Multi-Academy Trust) is an upper school and sixth form college on the border between the villages of Shelley and Skelmanthorpe in West Yorkshire. The College’s fundamental beliefs about education are summarised in their mission statement of “Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best”. The College believes this in turn gives students the best chance of being successful in achieving their goals and ambitions.
In early 2019 Huddersfield based Andrews Mechanical Services deemed the existing open vented calorifiers were to be replaced with 2 No Extreme 500 litre loading cylinders. Installed by well-established contractor Greens Mechanical Services Ltd of Brighouse, the stainless steel cylinders are capable of operating on both open and unvented systems alike and each cylinder can produce in excess of 2,500 l/hr at 60°C. In addition a condensing boilers efficiency is optimised whilst prioritising LPHW to the loading cylinders as the PHE on the Extreme is designed to operate at a ∆t of 30°C (80/50°C).
The new scheme ensures the loading cylinders now supply domestic hot water throughout the college’s teaching and kitchen areas.
MIKROFILL AT HOUNSLOW TOWN PRIMARY
With the need for more school places at an all-time high, a brand new five form entry school constructed by Jerram Falkus has been built in Hounslow, West London. The second phase of the build will include 284 mixed-tenure homes including affordable housing.
Building services consultants Baily Garner LLP delivered a fully designed M&E project which incorporated Mikrofill equipment. The schools LPHW/HWS demand was met by the selection of 3No Ethos FS 350 kW twin burner condensing boilers. Installed by long standing contractor R & H Building Services Ltd, the stainless steel boilers provide a collective turn down ratio of 60 > 1 (1050 > 17.5 kW), produce as little as 31mg/kw of Nox and can be installed as close as 50mm apart from one another.
The domestic hot water demand throughout this large primary school is catered for by 2 No Wras approved Extreme 500 litre loading cylinders. With a primary input of 120kW at 80°c, each cylinder can produce in excess of 2500 l/hr at 60°c. Installed with unvented kits the cylinders maximise the efficiency of the Ethos boilers by ensuring a ∆t of 30°c on the primary circuit (80/50°C).
The existing school continued operation during the site redevelopment with the new school being occupied in September 2018.
MIKROFILL AT WALLBROOK PRIMARY SCHOOL
Wallbrook Primary School is situated in Coseley, in the heart of the Black Country. The school offers an exciting curriculum for children between 5 and 11 years of age ensuring the curriculum caters for the needs of all pupils, whatever their interests and ability. Wallbrook also has a Foundation Stage incorporating ‘Little Ducklings’ pre-school which offers 52 places for children aged 3 and 4 with highly trained staff and a bright and cheerful learning environment.
In the spring of 2018 it was concluded by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council that the existing LPHW heating plant was to be replaced. Long established contractor TDR (Mechanical Services) Ltd installed 3 x Ethos 130kW wall mounted condensing boilers. Installed on free standing frames and coupled to a Mikrovent 750 low loss header/air and dirt separator the boilers provide LPHW to the schools main hall, north/south wings and administration block. The stainless steel boilers have a combined modulation of 30 > 1 (390 > 13kW) and nox levels of 33mg/kw. In addition the new installation was complimented by a Mikrofill 600 pre-commissioned pressurisation package.
Wallbrook also has its very own nature reserve – Seagull Bay which has a large pond, meadow and wooded area. This allows children to explore a wide range of environments, enhancing their learning experiences.
