Church Heating Projects Case Study



Turnbull & Scott has worked closely with the church heating sector over many years to provide highly effective low pressure hot water (LPHW) heating solutions to help withstand even the coldest of winters.

For centuries, churches have been heated by circulating hot water from a boiler through large diameter cast iron pipework. What Turnbull and Scott offers now is a much more effective hot water based heating solution where those thick plain pipes are replaced with a Finned Tube system that utilises a much narrower pipe with a spiral metal ‘fin’ wound around it. This provides a much larger surface area for the circulating air to pick up the heat energy and carry it around the church by means of natural convection.

This versatile Finned Tube can be placed within existing or new floor trenches, along walls within a casing or discretely under pews. Single tubes of up to 6 meters can be supplied with flanged ends to join together with a gasket, or with threaded ends for joining with coupling joints or unions.

Where stylish aesthetics are appreciated, single or multiple in line floor standing Finned Tube Radiators can be configured for use under pews, in vestibules and along corridors. These radiators can be installed horizontally or vertically attached from the floor upwards onto a wall.

The Turnbull and Scott team welcome enquiries to discuss individual projects to ensure customers have the most appropriate Finned Tube solution for their needs.
