Efficient boiler – installed in just one day

04 April 2016

KP Snacks has been able to replace an old, inefficient Steam packet boiler with the minimum of disruption to the process. 

Steam is vital for many processes in the food and drink sectors – from the pasteurisation of milk, dairy and juice products to jet cooking and the cleaning of brewery kegs, the list of applications for dry steam is almost endless.

Traditionally, boiler installations have been erected on site. However, Fulton has redesigned its systems to offer complete packaged system which can be built and fully tested before delivery to site for installation and commissioning. This is a procedure that has proved to quicker and more cost-effective for both Fulton and its customers.

A good example of the benefits for end-users of this solution can be seen in a recent project at a KP Snacks facility at Ashby de la Zouch. The company wanted to decommission the older of two steam packet boilers and install a new, more efficient shell boiler for the supply of clean, dry steam to the extrusion lines serving their KP Skips, Hula Hoops, Monster Munch, Aliens and other snack production lines.

Fulton’s sales engineers provided a new RBC Boiler, with large steam space and low exit steam velocities, together with a flue gas economiser, a Spirax Sarco fully-modulating feed water control system and fully modulating NuWay Burner.

Fulton took responsibility for the delivery and installation of the new boiler system, which was completed in a single day. Both Fulton and Spirax Sarco commissioned all elements of the boiler and supplied site training for KP Engineers.
