PIPES, PUMPS, VALVES & FITTINGS HYDE LOOKS AT THE DANGERS IN SOLUTIONS USED FOR MARKING AND SEALING PIPEWORK, DURAPIPE DISCUSSES THE IMPROVED PUMP EFFICIENCIES POSSIBLE WITH PLASTIC PIPEWORK AND PEGLER YORKSHIRE EXPLORES SYSTEM OPTIMISATION HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY APRIL 2016 73 The new high-efficiency circulators of the Calio-Therm S NC series from KSB are designed for pumping drinking water in closed circuits. The new circulators offer a high-efficiency permanent magnet motor to achieve top efficiencies. With one-touch operation the flow rate can be adjusted via three speed levels. In the event of a blocked rotor the motor stops automatically, and a fault is indicated. Three LEDs display the operating status. The screwed connections are available in dimension Rp ½ internal thread (EN 10266) or G 1 ¼ external thread (DIN ISO 228). The maximum flow rate equals 0.7 m3/h. The pump's maximum head is 1.0 m. The drinking water temperature should measure between five degrees and +65°C. The new pump sets can be supplied with either a plug or a cable to enable electrical connection without any tools. Apart from its simple standard design, the pump set is also available as a variant with integrated non-return valve and shut-off valve. The volute casing of the new pumps are made of brass, the impellers of technopolymer and the shafts of stainless steel. The wetted parts are made of polyamide. The new Calio-Therm S NC serves to pump hot water through the pipeline to the tapping points, and then back to the water heater through the circulation line. In this case, hot water is available at the tapping points without any delay. Marley Plumbing & Drainage has strengthened its commercial soil product offering by expanding its solvent soil range with new 160mm fittings and pipe. Designed with commercial projects in mind, the range features a variety of fittings that can be configured to suit the needs of a project, while still offering the product quality and reliability synonymous with Marley Plumbing & Drainage. This new offering strengthens Marley’s existing commercial portfolio which includes its kitemarked HDPE (high-density polyethylene system) and dBlue acoustic soil systems, which have been manufactured to withstand the high daily usage commercial properties entail and for easier handling on site. David Barker, category manager, said: “We continually invest in our research and development of product solutions, basing a lot of this on our customers’ needs. With an increased demand for commercially sized soil products, we decided to extend our already popular solvent weld soil range offering and create 160mm fittings that are just as robust and reliable. “What’s more, we have created a suite of BIM files for our soil ranges that can be downloaded on Marley’s website or via BIMstore, which will help our customers meet the requirements of using BIM on all government funded projects.” Epson’s fast label printing a must-have tool Top efficiencies from KSB enquiry number 148 enquiry number 147 Marley expands its solvent soil range Automated and fast label printing, cost-saving options, and hands-free operation make Epson's new industrial-grade LabelWorks LW-Z900FK a must-have for builders and plumbers. The LW-Z900FK is ideal for rapidly, efficiently and affordable labelling electrics, cabling, including audio/video cables, data communications equipment, as well as pipes and machinery. The label printer can use up to seven different tape widths and three different shapes of die-cut labels, all on tapes measuring up to nine metres long. Label types include standard and specialist varieties, such as heat-resistant, glow in the dark, magnetic, die-cut and heat shrink tube labels. A unique pick and print function enables the LW-Z900FK to print the next label in a pre-set series when it detects that a user has 'picked' the previous label. That's the perfect time-saver for repetitive jobs, as its ability to save up to 100 different label patterns. Hands-free operation is made possible by magnets that can be used to hold the printer onto steel surfaces. Text entry is made easier by a central keyboard – alternatively a PC keyboard can be used while using Epson’s Label Editor software. enquiry number 149
