For the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, we supplied two Vitomax steam boilers, each with a steam capacity of 1,400 kg/h. Heijmans Utiliteitsbouw and its subsidiary Burgers Ergon Installatietechniek were responsible for the entire project.

It was another turnkey project for us, for which we provided everything from start to finish. We fitted both boilers with an economizer and a thermal deaerator. Thanks to the ECO 200 integrated economizer, both boilers achieve an efficiency of 95%. The thermal deaerator ensures that the water is virtually oxygen-free and the final bit of oxygen is removed using chemicals.

Heijmans, the project leader, also looked to see where else Kuiper en Zonen's knowledge could be used to contribute to the smooth running of the project. The dimensioning of the steam pipes, the reduction sets, the drain points, the condensation pipes and more were looked at.

It was decided to use a redundant boiler set-up in order to guarantee an uninterrupted supply of steam. As a result, the Hubrecht Institute does not depend on other parties during the compulsory boiler inspections. It was a successful project, which ended with a satisfied customer.
