Installation / Design
Ashwell Biomass offer a complete hydronic consulting design to ensure that the biomass boiler is appropriately sized and integrated into a new or existing heating system. The sizing and integration of the system is crucial to providing a good quality and efficient installation
Full Engineering Facility
As a long established manufacturer, Ashwell Biomass have in-house engineering skills and facilities to design and manufacture a comprehensive range of bespoke steel fabricated products, each tailor made to provide a best practice solution for our customers. Fuel bunkers and fuel feed systems to suit individual project requirements are readily available.
Boiler House CAD Layouts
A computer aided design (CAD) system is used to design a boiler-house layout offering optimum performance while giving consideration to future maintenance requirements of the boiler and associated equipment. Factors to incorporate are access for fuel delivery, sizing of the boiler to meet output required, sizing of the fuel storage to ensure efficient operation and design of the fuel feed system.
Containerised Plant Rooms
The Ashwell Biomass Bio Heat Cabin offers a complete cost effective biomass boiler house and fuel store solution ready to off "plug in and go."
The Ashwell Biomass Bio Heat Cabins are complete boiler houses incorporating boilers, pumps, pipework, fuel stores and electrical connections. A full range of biomass boilers are offered in the Ashwell Bio Heat Cabin, each one bespoke to the customer’s requirements. Externally, a range of decorative wood or steel claddings in a comprehensive range of colours to blend into any situation are available.
The Ashwell Biomass Bio Heat Cabin offers a cost effective biomass solution with shorter lead times and lower costs for planning. As only a concrete plinth is required, they are a low cost alternative to expensive permanent building costs.
