Fencing timber & garden product manufacturers, Fountain Timber, has turned a headache into heating by using its offcuts as fuel for two new, state-of-the-art Hargassner UK biomass boilers.
As a responsible manufacturer, Fountain Timber has been accredited to ISO14001 for several years, however disposing of offcuts from its busy sawmill was an ongoing concern. To solve this issue, whilst also cutting its heating bills and carbon footprint, the firm replaced its oil-fired air heaters with two Hargassner wood chip boilers. The first installed was a 199kW Hargassner HSV200 wood chip boiler which was specified to heat large joinery workshops and timber drying kilns. The second, a smaller 55kW Hargassner wood chip boiler which was ideal to heat the offices, shop and trade counter. Both were specified and installed by Aston Cord Energy.
Hargassner has been developing and manufacturing biomass boilers for over 30 years and its products offer outstanding performance, features and functionality. The HSV200 models installed at Fountain Timber include a fully refractory-lined high-temperature combustion chamber, automatic ash level indication and a lambda sensor with fuel quality detection, ensuring optimum combustion every time.
