The Crown Spa Hotel in Scarborough is one of the first commercial water leisure venues to benefit from the smart technology control and energy cost savings of Calorex’s new Delta environmental control system.
The updated Delta 6 was selected as the ideal upgrade for a Calorex Delta 6B, which had provided 14 years of trouble-free service within the hotel’s swimming pool hall.
With new touch screen technology and a remote internet connection, Calorex’s upgraded Delta now allows the hotel’s management team to control the pool room directly from a computer or smartphone.
Designed and manufactured in the UK under ISO9001 compliance, the Delta range also features new EC/inverter fans as standard. These new fans are approximately 20 per cent more efficient due to the ability to adjust and control fan speed based upon demand through the PLC controller which allows the overall system efficiency to improve by up to 40 per cent.
Anthony Houfe of Hull-based Pool Heat Ltd, a Calorex approved service agent, specified and installed the new Delta unit. He explains: “The hotel is very ‘green’ and environmentally friendly and wherever possible looks to reduce energy usage.
“They were delighted to hear that the new PLC controller was included in the price and there were no hidden extras.” Since it was installed at the Crown Spa Hotel, the new Delta system has delivered the predicted energy cost reductions due to its updated features and has reduced the electrical consumption of the site.
The hotel’s spa manager, Stuart Russell, has also noticed how efficiently the water heats up even after a backwash: “Since the installation of the new Delta we have seen a marked improvement to the pool hall environment and pool water. It is more economical and convenient to use. The support and professionalism we have received from Anthony at Pool Heat and Calorex has been excellent.”
