York Hospital Hot Water Upgrade

Clifton Park Hospital's upgraded hot water heating system.

Clifton Park Hospital in York has upgraded its hot water heating system to meet increasing demand whilst staying economically and environmentally efficient.

The hospital has 24 beds, two theatres, a day case unit, a large outpatient department with X-ray facilities and on-site physiotherapy, including a small gym area. In 2018, the hospital opened a new outpatient department with 11 consulting rooms, two treatment rooms and x-ray facilities.

The new water heating system features 3 Rinnai HDC 1200i plus a 500 litre cylinder. A Rinnai HD50i looked after the hot water demand for 10 years but because of the expansion at the hospital a new bespoke system was required.

The decision was taken to upgrade to more energy efficient condensing hot water heaters and incorporate the 500 litre storage vessel to give the hospital a means of dealing with peak hour demands. 

 

Tight on time

The heating engineer contractors, AJ Gastech, were given just a 14 hour window in which to remove the existing system and replace it with the new one. This was achieved with a bit of time to spare.

 

Spec

The Rinnai HDC 1200i continuous model is for use on all high demand sites as it is easily capable of delivering 2,000 litres per hour. Units can also be combined as multiple units into one single module. The system’s internal analytical system can modulate the burner range from 54kw to 2.4kw. The Rinnai HDC 1200i is engineered for minimal energy wastage and maximum energy performance.

As Clifton Park Hospital has a secondary flow and return system, complete range modulation is experienced ensuring that the system is running at optimum performance at all times.
