A Pretty Big Pizza Oven!

It’s just not homes and commercial premises that our flues are used for, but also hotels, hospitality and catering. One such project was at Chewton Glen, where we installed a substantial Pizza Oven, using the HP 5000 system.

Chewton Glen is a five star hotel and spa located on the edge of the New Forest. It has an excellent reputation and was reviewed by The Telegraph, who stated:

“A traditional country house hotel with a set of contemporary treehouse suites in its grounds. The hotel is also home to a world-class spa and an award-winning restaurant. Service is traditional but the hotel is still fun for families. Chewton Glen is a place of many parts, all of them wholeheartedly luxurious.” 

Historically, the first recorded mention of  ‘Chewton Glen House’ was around 1732.

HP 5000 is a bit younger than that, being a technologically advanced twin wall flue manufactured with a 316-grade stainless steel liner and 304-grade stainless steel case. It is insulated with a 25mm/50mm thick high-density superwool blanket and is designed to operate under pressure up to 5000Pa (European Standard Designation H1). Operating with a continuous flue gas temperature up to 600 degrees, which is the European Standard Designation. The system is tested for thermal shock at 1000 degrees.

The components are flanged at both ends with a 25mm prudruding spigot at the male end to ensure correct alignment of joint and seating of the pre-installed gasket (no sealant required) on the engineered flanges. The joint of the two components butted together is secured using a V band then wrapped with insulation and a cover band.

The task was to supply, deliver and install a 200mm ID flue off  a Woodstone Pizza oven rising vertically for approximately 1.5m through the roof and then 45° across to avoid an air handling unit. The flue again turns 45° and rises vertically for approximately 2m to termination.

A very accomplished task, and more important as it forms part of “The Kitchen”, a cookery school which provides an informal dining experience offering you the chance to watch the expert Chefs at work, including the renowned James Martin, amongst others. The à la carte menu features gourmet burgers, superfood salads and much more, as well as wood-fired pizzas (obviously) – and we can confirm that the installers tested it with one of Chewton Glen’s tasty pizzas 🙂
