Bison Beams Works: drying hall for pre-fabricated concrete elements

Bison Beams has implemented a heating system with an unusual objective in its new factory premises in the UK: a hall for the quick hardening of factory produced pre-fabricated concrete elements. The project was implemented by MULTIBETON Ltd., the general licensee for the United Kingdom.

Concrete flooring and roofing element slabs that are at first still cold and wet are stored for drying on 6 so-called beds, each of which is 160 m long. The MULTIBETON heating of these beds significantly accelerates this process.

MULTIBETON-Euro-System Pipe 20, is used to combine low-pressure drop with diffusion density and increased pressure resistance. Some 12,000 metres of this relatively new pipe type have been installed under the hall floor and ensure a rapid heating in a maximum of 6 hours to a surface temperature of 50°C. The MULTIBETON-Euro-System Pipe 20 is set in concrete over which an upper floor of 10 mm steel is placed to ensure an even faster heat distribution.

The hall is simultaneously heated from 10°C to about 20°C, which also promotes the drying process from above as well as making the working climate more pleasant.
