SPONSORS THIS YEAR SO FAR Riello’s premix burners now up to 3MW

high turndown ratios of up to 8:1, across a wide range of models. Riello RX burners feature an exclusive design


that includes a patented woven wire gauze ‘sock’ covering the combustion head cylinder. Gas and combustion air are mixed upstream of the combustion head and then pass through precisionlocated ports and the gauze ‘sock’ to ignite on the external surface of the combustion head. This arrangement enables a very compact flame with a diameter directly related to the burner firing rate, ensuring precise heat control and optimum efficiency at all loads.

iello RX premix packaged burners are now available in outputs up to 3MW, offering NOx levels of less than 40mg/kWh, with

The high turndown makes RX burners ideal

for systems with variable heat loads where low NOx levels are also required. These range from condensing boilers through to process applications such as spray booths and industrial ovens. RX burners can be used in conjunction with

variable speed drive motors to reduce electricity consumption and lower noise levels even further than the typical 30% noise reduction compared to many other combustion applications. Control options include progressive twostage operation and fully modulating via 010V or 420 mA. Full electronic control with operational and diagnostic display is also available.

vinox welcomes the Chancellors announcement in his spring statement (13th March 2019) that all new homes

built from 2025 will be required to be heated by systems free from fossil fuels and that the UK will implement policies to increase the proportion of "green gas" within its gas grid to support this aim. This follows the publication of the

Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) warning that energyinefficient and high carbon housing is jeopardising the UK’s chances of meeting its carbon budgets. Evinox believes this offers an excellent opportunity for the heat network industry to

drive the design of new systems using green energy sources, such as heat pumps or solar thermal, and to lower heat losses for the network using smarter design. An additional benefit for existing heat networks is the ability to swap the primary energy source for greener alternatives in the future, which allows for new technologies to be easily integrated. Hammond states “As with the challenge of adapting to the digital age, the challenge of shaping a carbonneutral economy of the future is pressing," "We must apply the creativity of the marketplace to one of the most complex

Having undertaken an initial energy check, Grundfos identified several areas where significant pump related savings were possible. Taking the advice offered, two new boiler feed support pumps were purchased, and their

The initial results showed electrical savings of £56k pa; the removal of the modulation valve saved £18k per boiler on maintenance costs; a reduction in breakdown and/or steam issues on site; improved steam quality and well as gas savings of up to 9%, all

of which has meant a very short payback in terms of ROI. Grants have been so impressed with the results that there is a now planned schedule of Grundfos based pumps improvements in place.

that Government intends to regulate heat networks, something Evinox is firmly in favour of. Regulation of heat networks is key for meeting these growth targets and Evinox continue to work with the industry to help shape these regulations.

Tridonic announce launch of companionSUITE

ridonic is assisting luminaire manufacturers in the

configuration, transmission and control of driver settings. companionSUITE is a dynamic set of various software tools developed by Tridonic for longterm process optimisation, minimising production errors and enabling simple analysis of faulty devices. The range of software has now been expanded to include an analysis tool. LED drivers have a wide range of

properties and functions, enabling lighting to be tailored to individual user requirements: Both the configuration of luminaires during the production process and the adaptation of settings for the respective application can involve the definition of numerous parameters. The challenge here lies in the large number of settings to be configured. More often than not, this requires someone to pore over the datasheets. Tridonic

Tower Hamlets Council in 2014, which described its design as "innovative". In recognition of this innovation, Wood Wharf won the Tall Buildings category of the MIPIM Architectural Review Future Project Awards in 2014. Working with the developer, Canary Wharf Group (CWG), in combination with SES Engineering Services, Emico and Haydon Mechanical & Electrical contractors, Evinox Energy supplied heating and cooling interface units for 1330 apartments for the first phases of this development, with more to follow for the remaining phases. Homes are all connected to a

district heating network, with each apartment featuring a ModuSat XRECO Twin Plate heat interface unit for the supply of heating and hot water and a ModuSat Single Plate interface unit to provide cooling.

Tested by BSRIA to project design parameters

companionSUITE takes on this intensive task and provides luminaire manufacturers with all the information they need on the relevant driver at a glance – from power functions such as the Constant Lumen Output (CLO) through to applicationrelated settings such as automatic control of luminous intensity via motion sensor using corridorFUNCTION. The customer is provided with a comprehensive onscreen overview of the properties and settings, can change these as required and can reprogram the devices via an interface.

Interface units were tested by BSRIA as a requirement of this project, something Evinox were happy to undertake, confident their firstclass product manufacturing and performance would exceed the required results. Peter Linehan, Evinox Technical Sales Manager comments, “The main objective of the testing was to confirm the performance of the heating and cooling units under the specific design parameters of Wood Wharf phases A2/A3, E1/E2. The method statement was based upon three different sources; BESA UK Standard for Heat Interface Units Technical Specification, BSRIA BTS 2/2015 Test Method for Heat Interface Units and recommendations from the clients commissioning company.”

Peter continued, “Evinox’s

ModuSat XRECO TP HIU’s and ModuSat SP CIU’s were submitted, with a total of 8 units tested at the BSRIA Test House. These included each building’s most common HIU/CIU model and high load units. The interface units achieved excellent results, performing to the project requirements, which culminated in an order for the first 5 phases of the Wood Wharf development.”

Flexible manufacturing capabilities

In addition to the efficient performance of the ModuSat units, Evinox equipment was also chosen due to the flexibility of manufacturing and short delivery timescales. “Ontime” delivery schedules were critical for this project, as some of the equipment was being built into prefabricated pods by a third party prior to delivery to site. Their range of heat interface

units are designed and developed internally by technical engineers to UK standards, and built in Evinox’s own production facility in Brasov Romania by partner Romradiatoare, using lean manufacturing principles. Working closely with component suppliers enables them to deliver bespoke units, built to project specific requirements, in a timely manner.

Worldleading components

One of the key components used in every ModuSat HIU, is the high efficiency plate heat exchanger from SWEP, who are a world leading supplier of brazed plate heat exchangers for HVAC and industrial applications. Evinox’s ModuSat XRECO HIU delivers impressive, ultralow DHW return temperatures to the primary network by incorporating SWEP high efficiency domestic hot water plate heat exchangers with volumetrics that encourage turbulent flow. This contributes to excellent annual Volume Weighted Return Temperatures and system operating efficiency. For further information about
