Boiler meets 2018 NOx requirements
Elco’s Trigon XL range of floor-standing gas-fired boilers achieves ultra-low NOx emissions complying with Class 6 (2018) requirements. There are seven models, with outputs from 150 to 570 kW, an 8 bar working pressure, 30 K ∆T and a very compact footprint.
Rinnai water heaters team up with renewable energy
Rinnai’s continuous-flow water-heating solutions can work with renewable-energy sources such as solar-thermal and air-source heat pumps. The concept is that the water heater tops up the temperature of stored water heated using renewable energy — but only when required.
The quality of water in an area, particularly its hardness or softness, necessitates a range of approaches to preventing corrosion in water heaters. Kevin Potter explains what you need to know.
These boilers at a high-profile Government site in Swansea have been given a new lease of life and brought up to the standard of any new boiler on the market with the replacement of their burners with dual-fuel burners from Riello. The site is managed on behalf of Telereal Trillium by Arthur Portelli of Oakbury Building Services Consultants..
Lochinvar’s EcoSword range of low-NOx fully condensing gas-fired water heaters achieve NOx emissions below 37 mg/kWh across the entire range, so each model qualifies for the maximum three BREEAM points available. There are nine models with storage capacities from 163 to 388 l and hot-water recovery rates from 210 to 540 l/h through a 50 K temperature rise. They are aimed at small commercial and large residential projects.
Andrews Water Heaters revamps its Size-it tool
Andrews Water Heaters has updated and improved its long-established Size-it sizing tool for water heaters. It is now quicker, personalised and accessible online from any device to help specifiers select the most appropriate water heater from Andrews for a project
Horizontal shower heat-recovery unit
Heatrae Sadia has launched a horizontal shower heat-recovery unit (SHRU) to complement its vertical unit. The new unit is easy to install and can be fitting in new or existing properties. These heat-recovery units transfer heat from discharged waste water into the incoming water supply, reducing the energy need to heat water. The horizontal SHRU is up to 30% efficient.
