Launched in 2018, Fulton’s VSRT steam boiler is unlike anything the industry has seen before. And because of its radical, world-first design that is durable, long-lasting and boasts the highest efficiencies and ultra-low NOx emissions as standard, it’s also catching the eye of those judging product and innovation awards.
At the recent Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers’ (IGEM) Gas Industry Awards 2019 at the London Hilton on Park Lane, Fulton’s VSRT continued its winning streak by claiming the Product of the Year award, the vertical steam boiler’s third award in six months.
Commenting for Fulton, managing director Carl Knight says: “The double-award-winning VSRT becomes a multi-award-winning steam boiler and we couldn’t be more delighted with this Product of the Year award. It was up against some stiff competition, which we hope proves just how impressive this next-generation boiler is and how much hard work has gone into developing the VSRT.”.
With over 15 patents pending in three continents, the VSRT’s spiral-rib heat exchanger is a world first. It attains industry-leading heat transfer rates thanks to its unique spiral design, which achieves low stack temperatures by passing the flue gases through a spiral-wound heat exchanger that is fully immersed in water. “The PURE Technology approach adopted for the VSRT aims to enhance heat transfer, provide class-leading efficiencies, improve steam quality and reduce NOx emissions.” says Carl. “Rather than simply try to improve existing products to achieve these goals, PURE Technology challenges the industry status quo on conventional boiler design by engineering solutions that are fit-for-purpose and fully-optimised for all applications.”
