As the seventh anniversary of the installation of Keelham Farm Shop’s heat recovery system approaches, we have recalculated the cost savings based on today’s fuel price cap.
Keelham Farm Shop is now saving £16,000 and over 72,000 kWh per annum by harnessing waste heat from the busy farm shop, butchery and restaurant’s refrigeration units. The savings also equate to a reduction of 124 tonnes over seven years in the Skipton business’s carbon footprint.
Our Sales Director, Ken Riley said: “The heat recovery system that we supplied was a 750-litre storage tank with three internal heat exchangers that are capable of generating over 500 litres of free hot water per hour. The system was also fitted with an optional heat meter that monitors the real-time hot water usage for accurate cost-saving calculations.
“Unlike plate heat exchangers, the twin wall design of the heat recovery exchangers comply with EN1717, which is a requirement for all potable water use.”
In April 2019, DK Heat Recovery installed a further two heat exchangers to cope with increased demand. The installation was completed by Secker and Sons on behalf of Creative Retail Solutions.
“With no moving parts, the DK Heat Recovery system is simple and maintenance-free. It is also highly efficient due to the innovative design of the heat exchangers that can remove up to 100% of the energy produced by the refrigeration plant.
“Since the start of the energy crisis, we have been inundated with enquiries and are seeking additional installers nationwide to help satisfy this demand,” Ken concluded.
