A successful relationship, celebrated. Cheers!

18 February 2014

Bath Ales, a regional brewer based between Bristol & Bath and right on the doorstep of Fulton, has had a long relationship with the heat transfer specialist having used its vertical steam boilers since it opened its first brewery in 1995.

Both companies are renowned in their field. Bath Ales produces beers of distinction and quality in cask, keg and bottle and has been at the vanguard of the micro brewing revolution taking place in the UK, throughout Europe and the rest of the world. The Fulton name has been synonymous with steam since the company introduced the vertical tubeless steam boiler in 1949 and was established in Bristol in 1966. It remains one of the world’s leading manufacturers of steam, hot water and thermal fluid heat transfer systems.
Best known for its flagship Gem beer, Bath Ales has used Fulton’s 60J vertical steam boilers as its main energy source since brewing began in 1995; and steam has always been used for each stage of the brewing process.

Commenting on the relationship between the two companies, Bath Ales managing director Roger Jones says: “In the brewery’s 18 years, we have expanded and grown and Fulton has remained the preferred choice thanks to its reliability, quality and service.”

As 2014 approaches, and with a need to increase capacity to cope with demand, Bath Ales is embarking on its fourth brewery move and expansion. “With increased demand comes a requirement to upgrade existing services and, naturally, we’re upgrading our 60J Fulton boiler to one of its much larger RBC1500 horizontal boilers.” says Roger.

With outputs ranging from 957 to 4787 kg/h and a maximum working pressure of 10.34 bar, Fulton’s horizontal RBC steam boiler has been designed to provide superior performance, long life and low maintenance. It is highly efficient, safe and reliable and contains many unique design features that make it one of the most efficient and durable boilers available. It was originally developed in response to customer demand for capacities higher than the 2348 kg/h maximum for the company’s vertical range and can be specified with matched multi-stage oil, modulating gas or dual-fuel burners as standard, or with alternative burners on request. All RBCs meet current and anticipated legislation, have been engineered to provide a substantial performance margin and are constructed to BS2790, 1992 Class 1 standard.
