Bosch steam boilers for heating and hot water in China's tallest building
China: an economic giant with a huge growth market. Shanghai: a modern global metropolis. The Shanghai Tower: standing at 632 metres, China's tallest building is constructed from approximately 100,000 tons of steel and boasts a five-star hotel, various office and conference rooms, cultural and leisure facilities, and sightseeing options.
In January 2013, Bosch Industriekessel delivered four highly efficient Bosch Universal UL-S steam boilers. The order was processed and expert support regarding boiler technology was provided on site by Bosch Thermotechnology China. The new boilers each have a steam capacity of 12,000 kg per hour and are equipped with modulating burners and integrated flue gas heat exchangers.
The state-of-the-art system is completed with modular Bosch boiler house components such as the feed water full deaeration module WSM-VR, which supplies the steam boilers with thermally treated feed water. The PLC-based boiler controls BCO facilitate optimised system settings in terms of energy. The touch screen clearly displays the consumption and system values in the form of line graphs or total figures. An integrated teleservice connection allows system operating data to be accessed, analysed and optimised remotely. The high-pressure saturated steam produced in the system is required for humidifying the air processed by the air-conditioning systems, for cooking facilities within the building, hot water production and for the laundry.
