Chris Quelch, Operations Manager at Rodda’s, concludes: “With LPG, another more hidden benefit has been a large reduction in boiler servicing. This means the boiler isn’t offline as much, giving us quite a significant time saving, but also increases the amount of money the switch to LPG has saved us.
“We’ve seen big changes in efficiency too. Whereas we used to get an 8:1 burn ratio with oil, we now get 11:1 with LPG. The burners now run for longer, but on a lower load, reducing the shock on the boiler. This will also help keep maintenance requirements (and costs) down.”
