Fulton UK

ISH 2017

Fulton will be using its stand at ISH2017 (Stand F67/Hall 9.1, Messe Frankfurt, 14-18 March 2017) to launch its SRT Series steam boiler onto the European market and promote the company as a Global provider of heat transfer solutions.

Fulton’s all-new SRT Series is the most radical change to vertical steam boiler design since the company pioneered the vertical tubeless boiler in 1949,” says Carl Knight, managing director of Fulton Ltd.

By adopting a system engineering approach to design, and using its own ‘PURE’ Technology, Fulton’s SRT Series challenges the traditional heat transfer and mechanical design principles of vertical steam boilers. The SRT boasts industry-leading performance with an 84.5% Gross (93.5% Net) thermal efficiency from a fully-water-backed design with no refractory.

Fulton Limited has celebrated 50 years of manufacturing heat transfer solutions in the UK by hosting a ceremony and party at the M-Shed in Bristol for distributors, dignitaries and employees past and present.

Established in Bristol in 1966 and initially manufacturing a range of vertical tubeless steam boilers primarily for the laundry and dry cleaning market, Fulton Limited is today an important manufacturing base in the corporation’s global network that also includes production facilities in the USA, Canada and China.

Ronald and Bramley Palm (the son and grandson of Lewis Palm, Fulton’s founder) from Fulton’s parent company in the USA flew in to attend the celebrations and, amongst others, were joined by former managing director and co-founder of Fulton Boiler Works, Ian Davidson, and former sales and marketing director Gordon Bareham, who were both asked to take to the floor and give speeches.

Steam is often seen as a traditional source of indirect heat for brewing and distilling processes but, with the recent explosion in micro-breweries and resurgence in craft brewing, the regulations and additional ongoing investment required for running a pressure-based system often adds too much cost when considering steam as a heat transfer solution. So when Rebellion Beer Company was looking to replace its ageing steam boiler system, they turned to two of the UK’s major thermal fluid specialists for help. 

Established in 1993 by two school friends from Marlow, Rebellion Beer Company is a medium-sized micro-brewery that uses traditional brewing methods and natural ingredients to produce four million pints of beer from its Chiltern Hills-based brewery every year.

With the company already launching a new, radically-designed vertical steam boiler and celebrating 50 years of manufacturing in the UK in 2016, Fulton could be forgiven for concentrating its efforts on these two major events. But, as sales and marketing manager Doug Howarth explains, following an extensive review of its existing aftercare fleet, Fulton has secured eight new commercial vehicles, enabling the company to provide a more flexible approach when it comes to managing resources and reinforcing its reputation as a world class aftercare provider. 

“The new fleet has the potential to provide substantial benefits for Fulton’s customers. Six new VW Caddy Maxi service vehicles means the aftercare teams are now able to follow optimum timetables and provide a rapid response to emergency needs, which in turn reduces downtime by getting equipment back in service.” says Doug.

In the year that sees the company celebrate 50 years of UK manufacturing in the UK, Fulton is also launching its latest heat transfer solution, claiming that the all-new, next-generation SRT Series is the most radical change to vertical steam boiler design for nearly 70 years.

Commenting for Fulton, sales and marketing manager Doug Howarth says: “This will be quite a year for Fulton. Not only are we celebrating 50 years of manufacturing in the UK, but we’re also launching a great new heat transfer solution that we believe to be the most radical change in steam boiler design since we pioneered the vertical tubeless boiler in 1949!”

By adopting a systems engineering approach to design and using its own ‘PURE’ technology, Fulton’s SRT 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 SRT Series is an impressive 40% smaller.

It’s a double celebration for Fulton at Foodex 2016, as the company will be celebrating 50 years of UK manufacturing and using its stand to showcase its latest heat transfer solution, the all-new, next-generation SRT Series.
