110kW Fröling Wood Chip Boiler
This North Yorkshire Farm is now benefitting from reduced heating costs and additional revenue into the business since switching from an oil burner to a biomass boiler.
The boiler, fuel store and 600L expansion vessel are housed in a purpose built room. The extensive property has all of its heating and domestic hot water needs met by a single Froling T4 110kW Wood Chip boiler – this is facilitated by a heat network.
The heat network connects the heat source (biomass boiler) to remote heat stores (buffer tanks) via pre-insulated underground pipe. A series of these pipes are connected to buildings, creating a network which allows the single Froling boiler to produce enough heat energy to supply central heating and domestic hot water to:
- – 5 bedroom Farm house
- – 2 x three bedroom houses
- – Farm Office
- – Workshop
- – Greenhouse
Switching from an oil burner to a woodchip boiler affords fuel savings of around 2p/kWh.
