Fulton launches the most radical change to boiler design in nearly 70 years

aug 17 15Fulton launches the most radical change to boiler design in nearly 70 years

Fulton’s all-new heat transfer solution, the VSRT Series, is claimed by the company to be the most radical change to vertical steam boiler design since they pioneered the vertical tubeless boiler in 1949! (Read More)

By adopting a systems engineering approach to design and using its own ‘PURE’ technology, Fulton’s VSRT Series challenges the heat transfer and mechanical design principles of traditional vertical steam boilers.

With over 30 worldwide patents pending, the new vertical boiler’s spiral-rib tubeless design is a world first that has enabled Fulton to create a compact boiler with the industry’s smallest footprint. In fact, compared to the equivalent 30hp model from the company’s renowned J Series, the VSRT Series is an impressive 40% smaller.

Using a combination of in-house modelling with computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis, the ‘PURE Optimised’ design of the VSRT Series makes the new boiler durable and reliable in operation; and with up to 6:1 turndown and featuring a fully-modulating burner, the VSRT also boasts industry-leading performance with an 84.5% Gross (93.5% Net) thermal efficiency and 99.5% steam quality from a fully-water-backed design with no refractory.

The VSRT Series features patented, self-compensating stress relief architecture that virtually removes longitudinal stress and deflection absorption. It is CE marked and complies with anticipated EU regulations, with its combustion technology being reconfigured and the mesh burner and furnace designed as a single component, resulting in NOx emissions of less than 40mg/kWh.
