Evinox shares knowledge on BESA test

Evinox, BESA, Heat Interface Units, HIUs

Evinox Energy has launched a new CIBSE-accredited CPD seminar following the introduction of the first UK test standard for Heat Interface Units (HIUs) from BESA (Building Engineering Services Association).

This new standard enables the performance of different HIUs to be evaluated within the context of typical UK operating conditions. So heat network developers can consider the performance of specific HIUs against design requirements.

For today’s systems, the  network design and HIU specification must be closely matched to ensure optimum performance and the HIU must deliver the widest delta T and lowest return temperatures possible in all operational modes.

The Evinox seminar explores the test regime and discusses how designers and specifiers will be able to see the impact of a specific HIU on their network. Entitled “Understanding the BESA Test Standard for HIUs (VWARTS and All)”, the seminar is accredited by CIBSE and provides credits towards consulting engineers’ Continuing professional Development (CPD).

This 60-minute seminar is ideal for M&E consultants or housing providers interested in finding out more about the latest standard for communal & district heating systems and can be held at client’s premises or at the Evinox Energy offices in Chessington.
