Upgrade the plant room at Portsmouth Civic Centre which provides office space for approximately 2000 City Council staff.
Stokvis Energy Systems’ Econoplate low temperature and medium temperature plate heat exchangers were specified by specialist contractor Corrigenda.
Contracts Manager, Matt King, commented “The problem was we couldn’t get any information on the old plate heat exchangers, but Stokvis’ Technical Sales Manager helped us assess the existing set up, measured up the plates and calculated the output. The work started with the new plates being installed in a separate area of the lower ground floor plant room which also featured a 'Summer Boiler'. Stokvis provided a medium temperature to low temperature plate which we fed off the main heating boilers, into a low loss header."
Stokvis Econoplates provide a high-efficiency hot water service for all the toilets and the coffee shop, including numerous sinks around the building. The client can use the LTHW or MTHW plates depending on the time of year or the time of day.
Stokvis Econoplate plate heat exchangers are widely used for the supply of hot water in high demand situations, including hotels, conference centres, student accommodation and leisure centres, as well as industrial process applications. They are also specified to avoid the storage of hot water which can lead to an increased risk of Legionella contamination.
