Product Roundup

Thermal Integration Product Range

The most difficult job we have is trying to let people know everything we can do. With such a large range and a large number of custom systems, its difficult to know where to stop. This 15 minute video runs through the products listed on the products page on our wiki web site with a brief description of each and includes:

  • Unvented cylinders
  • Thermal stores including the HEATBANK
  • Buffer stores
  • HIUs
  • Commercial systems
  • Services

Heat Bank Xcel

The HEATBANK Xcel Multifuel Thermal Store

A 3D walk-through of a property fitted with a HEATBANK (TM) Xcel multi-fuel thermal store, connected to:

  • Wood burner
  • Pellet boiler
  • Solar panels
  • Radiators
  • Underfloor heating

The HEATBANK Xcel is the original multi-fuel thermal store. The one everyone tries their best to copy, but can't because of patents. Since the 1980's the Xcel has allowed customers to mix any combination of heat sources and loads they desire, with controls factory fitted to make everything work in perfect harmony. The only thermal store approved by wood burner manufacturers in general. Read more about the HEATBANK Xcel

Using System Designer

Using System Designer, Part 1

Designing a system from scratch can be a difficult process, even for an experienced designer. To overcome this we have spent the last ten years developing online software to take you through a design, ask all the important questions, do the maths, and design your system for you.

The first stage of the Online System Designer involves a series of questions relating to your property and what you wish to do. It asks you about hot water requirements, central heating, the types of heat source you wish to employ, and any other questions that are needed to ensure a system is designed properly, without forgetting anything important.

As the Designer collects information it generates a calculations page from your answers. This checks that the system will 'work' and prompt you to make changes if there seems to be a problem. It also works out energy used on an annual basis, as well as carbon footprints, running costs, and potential feed in tariffs.

Once we have the outline or a working design, the Designer generates a list of equipment and options that is required to do what you have asked. Pricing information is provided to give you a feel for the costs of the system. and help you calculate pay-back times. A schematic drawing is then generated, providing detailed information on how the system connects together, and allowing you to visualise the whole system in operation. This can be used to discuss the technical side of the installation with our technical consultants, or with your installers.

HIU Keep Warm Mode

HIU Keep Warm Mode

This video covers the keep warm function of our latest electronic Hydraulic Interface Units. This is a key feature that ensures the return temperatures in a district heating system are kept low at all times, ensuring optimum efficiencies.

The ability to specify the keep warm temperature independently of the setpoint hot water temperature, in partnership with the ability to time keep warm, make these the most efficient HIUs on the market, and this video helps explain why.
