A ventilation louvre is an opening protected by slats in a wall or window. It allows the ingress of fresh air to a building but excludes birds and rain. The slats may either be fixed or adjustable to suit required ventilation levels. Ventilation louvres are used in a wide range of buildings, often with the […]
A valve actuator is attached to the valve spindle and enables control from a remote location. Actuators are classified according to their range of movement, or travel: Multi-turn actuators – Used for control applications where accurate mid-range performance is required. Part-turn actuators – Used for rapid shut off, such as with butterfly or ball valves. Actuators are […]
An underfloor heating (UFH) manifold is a compact multiport arrangement, which usually includes a series of thermostatically controlled 2-port valves, temperature gauges, a mixing valve and circulation pump. Balancing between circuits is achieved using valves placed on the manifold return connections. A mixing valve introduces cold supply as necessary to the hot flow water as […]
An underfloor heating (UFH) system is made up of a number of parallel underfloor heating circuits, which can be balanced to achieve an even heat distribution across a floor. The underfloor heating circuits can be zoned where necessary so as to serve more than one floor space. Each underfloor heating circuit comprises a loop of […]
Trench heating is the term which describes a heat source set in a floor trench, covered by a grille and almost always sited in front of glazed facades. The primary purpose of trench heating is to create convection currents that prevent heat loss through the glazing and condensation forming on the glass. Trench heating can […]
SubStation HIUs are pre-engineered, factory-assembled heat exchange package plants used predominantly in district heating networks. They are designed to deal with large flows, such as those associated with whole blocks of apartments. Each assembly is mounted on a robust frame, which simplifies handling arrangements at site. The layout of components makes them easily accessible for maintenance […]
The Specific Fan Power (SFP) of a fan driven system is a measure of the efficiency at the duty point by which it can move a unit volume of air. It is not a constant, but varies with air flow and system pressure differential. Specifications for air handling equipment often stipulate an allowable limit for […]
A software programme for the wireless reading of any Kamstrup meter fitted with a radio module. [Sequence as follows: 1) List meter addresses on the PC Base, 2) Transfer list to the USB Reader, 3) Connect USB Reader to power pack (supplied separately), 4) Reading of all listed meters is then completed automatically, 5) Move […]
A downloadable software programme for installation on a PC or laptop. It collects reading data from energy and water meters automatically by importing from the Kamstrup M-Bus Master. In turn, the READy programme can then export to the customer’s information / billing facility.
A hand-held device for ‘drive by’ data collection, from smart energy & water meters equipped with wireless M-Bus communication. Can receive data at a rate of up to 30 energy meters per second. Can hold data from up to 15,000 meters. Onward transmission is to smartphone or tablet for interim storage.
