Green steam boiler gets a copper makeover

06 November 2017

The usually distinctive bright green shell of CFB Boilers’ 4VT Steam Boiler was transformed with a copper overskin for a customised job in a microbrewery which is due to open soon in  Devon. 

The brewery will produce real ale to help pubs and restaurants meet increasing demand for the product. 
 
Handcrafted at CFB Boilers’ manufacturing facility in Essex, the 4VT Steam Boiler underwent an overskin process using a 12mm copper sheet – the same material that is used by coppersmiths in the brewing industry on copper tanks, vessels and pipework – to give the boiler a more traditional look. The usual bright red burner casing was also exchanged for a metallic silver finish. Ready to fire with skid, the boiler was then sited and installed by CFB Boiler’s in-house engineers at the client’s microbrewery. 
 
Despite its copper exterior, the 4VT steam boiler maintains it green credentials including its energy-saving four-pass technology, a 30% larger steam chamber, and integral heat recovery. 
 
Additionally, the 4VT Steam Boiler has a start-up time of just 10-15 minutes, precise temperature delivery, a compact, tubeless design, and can be used with gas, oil or LPG. 
CFB Boiler’s 4VT Steam Boiler is available in 12 models from 8- 150HP and is manufactured by the 120-year-old steam specialist in Britain.
