MHG Gassero has supplied three Superbox gas-fired condensing boilers to Exeter College to provide space heating and hot water at the college’s Laurence Building.
The two 1MW and one 500kW Superbox boilers, along with ancillary equipment, were installed in a packaged plant room that was delivered to site in two halves.
The Laurence Building provides hospitality, hair and beauty courses, so heating and hot water demands are variable through the day depending on occupancy and the courses being taught. The Superbox boilers are integrated with the college’s building management system and have a turndown from 2,500 to 37kW across the three boilers. This ensures excellent load matching and optimum efficiency.
The new packaged plant room is located alongside an existing packaged unit which will become redundant once the changeover of services is completed by Mitie Building Services of Exeter. The new plant room was designed and specified by Hoare Lea of Plymouth and manufactured by Packaged Plant Solutions of Milton Keynes.
MHG’s Superbox gas-fired commercial condensing boilers offer a stainless steel exchanger, pre-mix combustion technology, and a high modulation ratio. It is available with heat outputs from 160 to 1,060kW in stand-alone or cascade configurations. Key features include high net efficiency up to 106.4%, low NOx levels, built-in automatic frost protection, and a master control panel which provides independent control of up to three different zones. Up to 16 Superbox boilers can be combined in a cascade configuration with no extra equipment.
