Wellman Robey “Combination” Boilers have become an integral part of two Combined Heat and Power installations for the N.H.S Foundation Trust.
The principle of the “Combination” Boiler is to take the exhaust gases from the C.H.P electricity generator engine and use the heat from it to raise steam or hot water. A completely independent section within the boiler (with it’s own furnace and oil or gas fired burner) guarantees that the unit will be able to provide its required output at all times regardless of the supply of waste gases available by firing the boiler in the conventional way as well as (or instead of) using the waste heat recovery section.
The two N.H.S Trust Foundations that have recently taken delivery of the Wellman Robey Combination Boilers are Countess of Chester and Aintree University (Liverpool) hospitals.
Countess of Chester has 580 beds on a single site and provides a range of medical services for over 400,000 patients a year for Western Cheshire, the Wirral and North Wales. The Robey- Loos boiler supplied is a UL-S IE Composite Boiler designed for an output of 3945kg/hr at 5barG that will provide steam and hot-water for the total requirement of the hospital complex.
