Enerpower are delighted to have installed a biomass heating system at Beckman Coulter Laboratories in Co. Clare. International company Beckman Coulter approached Enerpower in order to provide a heat solution for their recently expanded plant in Co. Clare. Enerpower worked closely with the team to install the ultimate solution of a Gilles underfeed firing biomass heating system to the newly added 6,700sq meters to the facility.
The Gilles HPKI-K 550 biomass boiler is a fully automatic underfeed firing with multi-cylcone and flue gas fan, biomass heating system. The primary and second air are regulated by means of individual dampers. The combustion chamber door has double hinges in the front wall of the combustion chamber to allow for inspection and service as well as a service door below the grate. The biomass boiler system is a multi fuel system working on both wood chip and wood pellet. By installing an auger this also means that wood chip is transported from the fuel store room via a drop chute into the cell wheel underneath the burner. The pitch of the auger guarantees uniform and damage free transport of the fuel.
Also, during the installation of this biomass boiler system, Enerpower worked closely with a local company and installed a biomass silo system. This biomass silo was 6m in diameter and 5 meters high. The silo made from galvanized steel creates the perfect condition to allow for storage of biomass materials outdoors and also contains a fuel level viewing window.
Beckman Coulter now have the ideal biomass heating system for their commercial operation. It is very simple, fuel is extremely cost-efficient and also works at protecting the businesses impact on the environment.
