wasp – anti surge valve

september 2023 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

Automatic Surge Protection
The unique WASP valve incorporates as standard, three design features to automatically protect building risers under all operating conditions, from the destructive surge and water hammer phenomena. These features are independent of any mechanical devices ensuring reaction in a very low milli second time span.

Vacuum Protection
The WASP valve utilises the large orifice to admit air in the riser thus preventing vacuum occurring when the booster set is down (powered off).

Effective Air Release
During filling, air is forced through an “Anti-Surge” orifice resulting in the deceleration of the approaching water column due to the resistance of rising air pressure in the valve. This dampens potential pressure transients when the air valve closes. The WASP valve design, ensures effective de-aeration under all pipeline flow and operating conditions, via either one of three discharge orifices.

 

lowara – presfix pressurisation unit

august 2023 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

The main benefits include: large volumes of water are no longer required to be stored at the top of the building. Expansion vessels can now be used in place of the storage tanks and these can be placed anywhere in the building, usually in the basement where the weight is not a problem.

Sealed systems reduce corrosion to an absolute minimum by sealing the system content from atmosphere, and only adding fresh water to replace loses through leakage. Sealed systems also offer the possibility of operating at higher temperatures if required (Max 120°C) which permits lower circulation rates, smaller pumps and reduced pipe work dimension with obvious cost savings.

 

tricel – elvaro t

July 2023 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

The Elvaro T is a combined tank and variable speed
pump set solution designed to maximise the water
storage available within a minimum available space.
Variable speed operation of the pumps means system
pipework lasts longer due to the removal of the water
hammer common on fixed speed operated pumps.
This also provides a reduction in energy consumption
and is much quieter when in operation.
The compact design of the unit not only provides a
space saving solution, but is an ideal replacement for
an existing installation. Smaller units in the range can
fit through standard doorways without having to be
dismantled.

 

BSP Micro

June 2023 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

The magnetic filter removes magnetic system debris before reaching the Cartridge filter which helps to increase the lifespan of the boiler, chiller and cooling system components, reduces carbon emissions, increases fuel efficiency and increases the lifespan of the Cartridge Filter.

BSP’s Anti-Microbial Spun Cartridge Filters remove non-magnetic system debris, available in 20, 5 and 0.5 micron filtration rates, ensures coalescence micro-bubble formation on the surface of the Filter and surpasses BSRIA guidance for filtration rates.
They are typically used in instances when the water has a heavy degree of particles. BSP Cartridge Filters can catch and hold a large volume of particles before they become clogged.
The Polypropylene filtration media is impregnated with Silver Ions which block the bacterial respiratory system of bacteria thereby destroying the energy production of the cell, leading to the bursting of the cell membrane and neutralising of the bacteria.
Max working temperature is 90°C.

FLAMCO – SIDEFLOW CLEAN

may 2023 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

A partial flow filter for central heating and cooling systems, the SideFlow Clean continuously cleans the system. When a SideFlow Clean is connected to a building, a proportion (10% PICV) of the main flow is filtered, allowing dirt and magnetic particles to be captured by a filter bag and a magnetic filter.

  • Side stream filtration for the removal of both magnetic and nonmagnetic suspended solids.
    Installation and maintenance are quick and easy.
  • The integrated wall fasteners make it easy to mount.
  • Jacket with integrated insulation.
  • Both left and right hand mounting options are available.
  • Glycol-based antifreeze can be added up to 50%.

MIKROFILL PRESSURISATION

The Mikrofill 3 pressurization unit incorporates:

  • Fluid Risk Category 4 backflow prevention
  • The ability to fill directly from mains/ boosted water supply any LPHW or CHW system from empty
  • Comprehensive electronic pressure management

Customers can expect nothing but the best product, using the latest technology, manufactured to
the highest quality standards, resulting in the most reliable solution available.

LOWARA GMS10/ PABLRM

SEPTEMBER 2022 PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

An extremely compact, wall mounted CAT 5 single pump booster set and tank suitable for low flow applications i.e.: single outlet washdown taps for bin stores. Comprises of an 18-litre break tank contained within an enclosed stainless-steel cabinet. A pressure controller maintains smooth operation and relieves pipe stress. A typical duty would be 0.25 l/s @ 2 bar.
Pros:
The GMS10 is an extremely cost-effective and reliable option for small domestic/commercial applications and being wall-mounted the unit can be fitted within a small area without a great deal of spatial impediment. Now also available from Tricel with an internal heater & thermostat for frost protection and a GRP enclosure for protection from the elements.
Cons:
Lacks versatility as the GMS10 is only available with just the one fixed speed pump model.

TRICEL Elvaro T/B

August 2022 Product of the Month

The ELVARO range encompasses two of the most-popular configurations of combined pump and tank solutions. The ELVARO B comprises of a single, twin, or triplex variable speed surface-mounted pump set mounted below (‘B’) a frame supported cold water storage tank including all interconnecting pipework. Tank sizes range from 500 – 3000 litres of nominal storage capacity and a single pump in operation can achieve between 0.3 l/s @ 4 bar with options to increase up to 1.4 l/s @ 6 bar.

The ELVARO T on the other hand, comprises of either one, two or three submersible pumps mounted within a one-piece storage tank ranging from 500 litre to 2250 litres of nominal capacity and low-level protection via float switches is supplied as standard. Lowara Hydrovar inverter(s), manifolds & expansion vessels are mounted on a reinforced lid to provide optimum performance output via electronic control and ease of on-site installation. All interconnecting pipework including valves and fittings are also included.

Pros:

Where to begin?

Both the ELVARO T and B come into their own when floor space is limited within a plant room, and therefore a tight and compact footprint becomes an essential factor in selecting a solution. The footprint of either option is greatly reduced versus traditional pump and tank configurations because of both unit’s modular designs, but the ELVARO B almost certainly has an advantage over its sister because the pumps themselves do not contribute to even an inch of the free space in the surrounding area outside of the tank.

The ELVARO B is not only exceptionally easy to maintain but can be delivered to the site in two components – the frame assembly and booster set & the storage tank itself. This allows for the set to be manoeuvred into a plant room with limited height in the most pain-free manner, and reassembly once positioned correctly is extremely straightforward.

A CAT 5 option is available for all tank sizes and configurations when backflow prevention is recommended and essential for regulatory compliance.

The ELVARO T can even be installed with a slave tank when additional capacity is required simply by fitting a sparge pipe to ensure equitable useable tank capacity.

All pumps are pre-set to your own pressure requirements before leaving us, but should commissioning or servicing be required, our engineers are thoroughly trained to ensure that any ELVARO is working at its optimum performance potential.

Cons:

NONE 

(Just kidding)

We have been in the industry long enough to know that the ELVARO is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution and does not suit the nature of every installation. Sometimes a traditional tank and pump system will suffice when space-saving is not a crucial element in the specification.

However, with continued development and testing well underway, we hope to evolve the ELVARO way beyond conventional expectations of a pressure boosting system, with pre & post-manufacture customization options becoming available to aid in quashing any objections, to even expanding the ELVARO range further to encompass more than just straightforward cold-water pressure boosting.

Watch. This. Space.

(No pun intended – seriously)
