Case Study

Nuclear storage centre requires heating during construction

At Andrews Heat for Hire, we have a genuine expertise in providing clients from industrial backgrounds with climate control solutions whenever they are sought. Applications within this field are often dangerous and bound by strict security measures which makes it important that the correct equipment is delivered at the first time of asking.

The expansion of a nuclear recycling facility in Liverpool was dependent upon temporary heating equipment, with a temperature increase needed to ensure the completion of various drying, painting and sealing tasks. The presence of uranic materials and nuclear cylinders on site posed a challenge but we were able to recommend a heater hire package which was suitable for the surroundings.

Six FH111 indirect fired units were originally required to heat a particular area before the customer requested that we provide alternative equipment to raise temperatures across the entire premises. We then replaced the FH111 heaters with three high capacity FH4000 models – capable of producing a combined air flow of more than 70,000m³/h.

This project underlined our ability to adapt solutions to a client’s ever-changing demands as the system we recommended help guide a major client through an important stage of an ongoing construction job. Our units remained on site for approximately four months in total and were later accompanied by ventilation fans once the development had advanced further.
