Evinox passes the test

Evinox, ModuSat XR, heat interface unit, HIU

The Evinox ModuSat XR heat interface unit (HIU) has been tested to the BESA (British Engineering Services Association) UK Standard for HIUs, achieving impressive results all round.

Launched in late 2016, the BESA UK Standard for Heat Interface Units was introduced to help designers and specifiers evaluate the performance of a particular HIU on their network. This new standard aims to provide HIU benchmarking, similar in many ways to the well-known SEDBUK scheme for domestic boilers. Evinox is one of the first to undertake the testing process.

With an overall VWART of just 33.40C, impressively low domestic hot water return temperatures and the ability to deliver flexible ‘Keep Warm’ operation, the BESA test results provide a clear, independently verified confirmation that the Evinox ModuSat XR range delivers outstanding performance for modern heat networks.

Mike Shaw, commercial director at Evinox Energy comments: “We believe independent testing is a vital step forward for the communal and district heating industry.”

The BESA standard is currently optional for HIU manufacturers, however, Evinox believes this will be a mandatory requirement in the near future and asks designers and specifiers to start insisting on the use of BESA tested units for their heat network projects going forward.
