PASCHALi has become aware of a potential hazard in some biomass boilers when operating in slumber mode. The concern is that when operating in slumber mode partial combustion may occur generating unburned flue gases, including carbon monoxide.
It is important that:
1. The flue is designed to ensure that the carbon monoxide concentration cannot rise above the lower explosive limit. In particular, where the flue is fan assisted, it is important to make provision for the continued safe removal of flue gases in the event that either the fan or the power supply to the fan should fail;
2. The boiler’s fire door should never be opened when a boiler is operating in slumber mode because the inrush of air could result in a flash-over or explosion;
3. The fuel used is within the specification required by the boiler.

This faith community reached its full year target for generating solar power from new panels on its roof three months early and saved thousands of pounds, thanks to PASCHALi Greener Working Solutions. The consultant had just a few weeks to advise on how to create renewable solar energy, and get the system installed on tight deadlines just as Government tariffs changed!
The aim was to reduce energy consumption for this community building serving 350 families, advising on which renewable energy options would be most efficient. PASCHALi helped select the best solution available, guiding and advising regarding a maze of products, contractors and planning regulations. The Board opted for a 10kWp solar PV panel installation on the roof, with Protech Solar Systems as the chosen contractor.
