Description

Electronically controlled twin plate hydraulic heat interface unit (HIU), designed to provide instantaneous hot water and heating to the dwelling.


Features and benefits:

  • Domestic hot water (DHW) output up to 60 kW.
  • Heating (HTG) output up to 10 kW.
  • DHW and HTG controlled by pressure independent control valves (PICVs).
  • Fully insulated expanded polypropylene (EPP) casing.
  • Innovative cooling area to reduce ambient temperatures to extend component life.
  • Heat meter and pressure gauge visible with casing installed.
  • Insulated case constructed in three sections to improve access for maintenance and commissioning.
  • Standing heat loss of: 60 or 70°C: 31 W.
  • vTherm°e achieved the lowest Volume-Weighted Average Return Temperatures (VWART) at a primary flow temperature of 60°C of any BESA tested HIU: 70°C: 27.9°C (VWART). 60°C: 29°C (VWART).
  • In periods with no DHW or heating demand, the HIUs standing heat loss shall be a maximum of 32 W.
  • WRAS approved.

Material:

  • Pipes, fittings, valves (primary and heating): 1.4301 (AISI 304), CW617N, CW614N, CW602N, CW625N, GG15.
  • Pipes, fittings, valves (domestic hot water): 1.4404 (AISI 316L), CW617N, CW617N, CW602N.
  • Heat exchanger: 1.4404 (AISI 316L) Cu Brazing.
  • Insulation: Expanded polypropylene (EPP).

Some additional materials are used by component manufacturers such as valves and pumps. These are in small components within the assembly.
