Buildings with large heating pipes sunk into the floor with suspended walkways. Places like Stansted and Rotherfield Hall or National Trust, Mount Stewart Property in County Down and Halls in Melton Mowbray and Stoke on Trent. To make a real feature or for a sympathetic restoration why not take a look ...

Energy Efficiency Case Study - Hot Water Generation and Distribution Systems

Energy Efficiency Case Study - Hot Water Generation and Distribution Systems

nVent Thermal Management

There are two options to compensate for the heat loss in hot water distribution pipes: using a temperature maintenance cable or a re-circulation pipe. Which option is more sensible from an energy point of view, when using a condensing boiler for hot water generation? A study by the Technical University in Dresden addresses the question of which option is more energy-efficient.The results presented show that a single pipe hot water system that compensates for heat losses with a self-regulating temperature maintenance cable is a better solution.

Cast Iron Rainwater and Drain Outlet Cowl

Cast Iron Rainwater and Drain Outlet Cowl

Cast Iron Air Brick Company

Before there was an open, 4" (100mm) diameter pipe that drained water from the back of this Devon farm house into the yard. Apart from an open pipe, which never looks good on a listed building, when it rained heavily there was water gushing out across the road causing havoc to any cars parked nearby. With the installation of the cast iron cowled conservation vent now the water is deflected downwards and the opening is no longer open to the elements and in eye line. With a choice of 100mm or 125mm spigots this cowled vent has many uses

Condair has a gas at BAT Southampton

Condair has a gas at BAT Southampton

Condair Limited

Condair has supplied two gas-fired humidifiers capable of delivering up to 480kg of steam per hour to British American Tobacco’s R&D facility in Southampton. Seeking an energy efficient alternative to their existing 10 year old live steam humidification system, the Condair GS gas-fired humidifier proved the perfect replacement as it provides high capacity steam generation with low operating costs, offering 65% cheaper steam than electric humidifiers.Two Condair GS humidifiers were installed, each capable of delivering up to 240kg of steam per hour to two AHUs feeding a test area which needed to be kept at a constant 22°C with 60%RH ±5%. Steve Hemsley, Head of Commercial at British American Tobacco, commented, “To date the humidifiers have enabled us to maintain the desired conditions in our close conditioned environments.”Condair GS gas-fired steam humidifiers have a high quality, compact construction with state-of-the-art safety features, a user-friendly design and a variety of flexible options which makes them simple to install and straightforward to service and maintain.The humidifier incorporates a 360° flame encircling the burner. This maximises the thermal transfer to the heat exchanger resulting in a thermal efficiency of over 90%. The Condair GS therefore reacts very quickly to a requirement for humidification whilst minimising gas consumption and emissions. Steam output can also be consistently controlled from outputs as low as 10kg/hr.The stainless steel heat exchanger has large flat surfaces that dislodge scale during normal operation. This scale falls to the bottom of the water tank. The large flat surfaces of the heat exchanger make it easy to remove what little scale is left behind. Also, as the heat exchanger remains mostly scale-free, the efficiency of heat transfer to the water is maximised. To further reduce scale build-up in the boiling chamber, a low volume of fresh water is continually added and high mineral content water removed. This not only decreases scale build-up but improves humidity control when compared to other gas-fired humidifiers that occasionally stop steam production and run a complete tank drain to combat scale.Alongside the humidifiers Optisorp short evaporation steam lances were also supplied to distribute the steam inside the ducts. Made from stainless steel, giving a long service life, the OptiSorp steam distribution manifold offers evaporation distances up to four times shorter than standard steam pipes. Multiple distribution pipes provide steam across the entire duct at a very even concentration. The pipe’s outlets have tiny tubes that take the steam from the centre of the pipe where it is at its hottest and driest, assisting rapid absorption.

nVent Thermal Management

RSP Consulting Engineers designed 1.8km of RAYCHEM HWAT-R self-regulating heating cable in a single-pipe hot water system throughout this new hospital. Capable of maintaining water temperatures at a standard 55°C, the system also provides the capability to boost temperatures to 65°C periodically during legionella prevention cycles. The system is controlled via 19 RAYCHEM HWAT-ECO controllers which communicate seamlessly with the central BMS. As the system uses half the pipework of a conventional re-circulation system the installation time was cut dramatically and much needed space savings were made in walls and ceiling voids.

HM Maximum Security Prison, Shotts, Scotland

nVent Thermal Management

A single-pipe hot water system based has been installed with 1.2km of RAYCHEM HWAT-R self-regulating heating system supported by 13 RAYCHEM HWAT-ECO controllers. As the system uses half the pipework of a conventional recirculation system, on-site installation time was cut dramatically and this was enhanced further by use of the RayClic connection systems. It also meant that space savings could be made in walls and ceiling voids. The system is low-maintenance, a critical factor due to the sensitive nature of this building and can now be very easily extended during further planned developments.
