Following a site survey in early 2018 at Dudley Community Fire Station, it was concluded that the existing LPHW & HWS plant needed replacing with more efficient equipment.

Leading building services consultancy Davies Partnership collaborated with West Midlands Fire to select Mikrofill equipment to cover the stations LPHW & HWS demands. This included 3No Ethos 110kW stainless steel condensing boilers providing both heating and indirect LPHW to 2No 500L Extreme HWS loading systems.

The Extreme is a domestic hot water generator that combines the advantages of both an instantaneous hot water heater and a storage system. The efficiency of the Ethos 110kW boilers is maximised whilst providing indirect LPHW to the cylinder as the Extreme is designed to operate at a Δt of 30°C. Based on a prioritised input of 110kW at 80°C each Extreme 500 will produce in excess of 2350 l/hr and 800 litres in a 10 minute period at 60°C.

The new installation was carried out by established contractor Senate Mechanical Ltd.
