New Evinox ModuSat XR takes HIU efficiency to another level
Evinox has extended its best-selling range of ModuSat Heat Interface Units with the introduction of the new ModuSat XR and ModuSat XR- ECO Twin Plate models. Providing both indirect space heating and domestic hot water, ModuSat XR units are ideal for use in modern, efficient district and communal heat networks. All units deliver fast, dynamic domestic hot water response, and the ModuSat XR-ECO models also provide ultra-low DHW return temperatures to the primary heat network.
ModuSat XR HIU’s deliver fast hot water without reducing the efficiency of the heat network, both important factors according to Evinox Energy marketing manager, Emma Alexander who says: “There is strong evidence that speed of hot water delivery is a key requirement for residents living in homes operating on communal and district heating schemes”
She continues: “The ability to deliver abundant hot water quickly while at the same time ensuring the efficiency of the heat network is not compromised is a key challenge for heat network designers and HIU manufacturers, so the improved performance of the new ModuSat XR range is an important step forward in this area.”
ModuSat XR-ECO have been designed to lower system temperatures in order to deliver efficient operation of heat networks. The new products incorporate ultra-high efficiency domestic hot water plate heat exchangers with improved volumetrics that encourage turbulent flow and optimal heat transfer.
The ModuSat XR has been tested under a new UK test standard, operated by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA). It is intended to help heat network designers to evaluate individual HIU performance on their network under typical UK conditions. It will also provide HIU benchmarking, similar in many ways to the SEDBUK scheme for domestic boilers.
Evinox believes independent testing is an important step for the UK HIU industry, so the latest ModuSat XR and XR-ECO models have been developed very much with these new standards in mind. Evinox is confident that this new standard will lead to HIU systems and heat networks being designed with efficiency as much as maximum hot water capacity being the key consideration.
