Fulton - VSRT Steam Boiler

Fulton will be using Stand X291 at Foodex to showcase the VSRT, the company’s all-new range of gas-fired, vertical spiral-rib tubeless steam boilers.

The VSRT is the first range to emerge from the company’s new ‘PURE Technology’ approach, an initiative that has resulted in a world-first design that is durable, long-lasting and boasts the highest efficiencies and ultra-low NOx emissions as standard.

Commenting for Fulton, sales and marketing manager Leigh Bryan says: “Our products are already proving themselves in food processing applications in the UK and around the world; and we’re really looking forward to promoting the VSRT and its benefits to other companies at Foodex.”

He goes on to say that “Fulton’s PURE Technology approach aims to enhance heat transfer, provide class-leading efficiencies, improve steam quality and reduce NOx emissions.

“Rather than further-improve products like our renowned J Series to achieve these goals, PURE Technology – the culmination of Fulton’s clean slate approach to design – challenges the industry status quo on conventional boiler design by engineering solutions that are fit-for-purpose and fully-optimised for all applications.” says Leigh.

With over 15 patents pending in three continents, the VSRT attains industry-leading heat transfer rates thanks to a unique spiral-rib heat exchanger, which achieves low stack temperatures by passing the flue gases through a spiral-wound heat exchanger that is fully immersed in water.

The VSRT’s combustion technology achieves ultra-low NOx emissions of <20ppm and features a fully-matched modulating burner and furnace that have been purposely-designed as a single component. This helps to achieve up to 10:1 turndown capabilities and industry-leading performance of up to 82.5% gross thermal efficiency with 99.75% steam quality. At launch, the VSRT is available with outputs from 160 to 960 kg/h and its pressure vessel and burner are backed by a five-year guarantee as standard.

For applications where contaminated air can reduce boiler uptime the VSRT’s cyclonic air filter effectively separates debris and damaging particles from the combustion air and, because it won’t clog over time, eliminates the need for replacement filters.

Foodex takes place at the NEC, Birmingham on the 16 - 18th April 2018.
