Snow Melt Projects in Weston and Reading


Snow Melt in Weston, MA

TJ’s recently installed a 4,000 square foot snow melt system in Weston, MA.  The system control platform was a Viessmann cascade control for two twin Viessmann boilers.  The cascade control allows the boilers to rotate and fire at lower BTU output as the system comes up to temperature.  The snow melt system is controlled by two Tekmar snow and ice controls -one for the walks and the approach and one for
the large parking area.

Twin Viessmann Boilers

This particular snow melt project required twin Viessmann boilers totaling 1 million BTUs.

Viessmann Cascade Control

To optimize the system’s efficiency, TJ’s installed a Viessmann cascade control. This control allows us to maximize the efficiency of the system by rotating the boilers, and firing them at the lowest possible firing rate to achieve the highest possible efficiency.

The picture of the screen below shows boiler 1 and 2 at different firing rates. It even has a bar graph showing how close to 100% firing rate each boiler is. This was truly a seamless installation.
