GF PE electrofusion range now approved for use on gas pipes George Fischer Sales (GF) has announced that its ELGEF Plus PE range of black electrofusion fittings is now GIS Approved for use on yellow PE Gas pipework. The range which includes: couplers, elbows, tees, reducers, caps, transition fittings, tapping saddles and tees and branch fittings provide a tried and trusted method of jointing PE PIPE in size ranging from 20mm to 500mm. Electrofusion pipe jointing of PE pipe is said to be a fast and efficient jointing method, providing secure pipework systems. For jointing, the GF MSA Plus fusion control units are extremely user friendly and require minimal experience or training. These fittings can also be fused using other electrofusion control units currently available in the UK. This range, which has been used by the water utility companies in the UK for many years now, is available throughout the UK via a network of GF approved distributors. Spread an even warmth across your floor with the DEVImat DEVI, manufacturer of electric heating systems, offers the prefabricated DEVImat as a supplement to existing heating systems. The mat is said to spread an even warmth across the floor, allowing the main heat source to be turned down at times or disregarded completely with corresponding energy savings. The DEVImat has been designed to be laid within the thickness of the adhesive, rather than set within a screed. Mat-style underfloor heating systems are the quickest systems to install for a warm floor. The DEVImat is designed to offer incredibly high mechanical strength, yet being thin it adds minimal height to the floor. It is available in three varieties - 100W/m2 for timber-based subfloors, 150W/m2 for concrete-based subfloors and 200 W/m2 for concrete-based subfloors where there is high heat loss. The DEVImat is also Intertek SEMKO approved; the highest standard in the industry. Silavent retail range gets a packaging make-over Polypipe Ventilation, manufacturer of energy saving domestic and light commercial ventilation systems, has introduced fresh new packaging across its full retail range of Silavent fans. The Silavent Classic (formerly Domus) fan range packaging consists of a clear blister pack with easily recognisable header card, while the Silavent Green Line GLA and SDF 100mm axial fans feature a new common retail box. Offering models to suit all applications, including low voltage (SELV) variants, the fan type and its control option is clearly indicated on the reverse of the new box. The box design carries all key information on both fans in easy to understand terminology and includes symbols to represent suitability for bathroom or toilet applications. In addition, Polypipe Ventilation’s customer service telephone number is clearly printed on the rear of the packaging so any customer queries can be answered in one easy call. Boiler’s larger ash box cuts emptying by more than half Viessmann has launched updates to its range of automatic biomass boilers that is said to drastically reduce the maintenance associated with ash by-products, making Vitoligno a simple, clean renewable heating option for UK households. The company has increased the ash box size of all six output models in the Vitoligno 300-P range by 30%. This means end-users need only empty the ash box once per season, compared to up to three times previously. Viessmann’s engineers have also redesigned the ash draw’s shape and height to make it easier to open. The new boilers also act to reduce fly ash, which can contaminate heating surfaces, reducing unit efficiency and forcing the need for more regular cleaning. Fly ash is eliminated in the updated range thanks to a reduced fan speed, lambda probe technology and the enlarged ash tray; all serve to improve ash circulation by helping the dust drop from the combustion chamber more readily. sponsored by The Perfect Commercial Partnership 16 AUGUST 2013 HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY enquiry number 104 It’s ‘oil’ about the future for Worcester’s new generation of boilers Worcester, Bosch Group, has introduced its new oil-fired boiler range. Worcester’s latest Greenstar Heatslave and Greenstar Danesmoor oil-fired boilers are said to exceed the efficiency requirements of the forthcoming revisions to the ErP Directive, future proofing installations. Worcester has redesigned the Greenstar Heatslave II’s baffle as a single piece component. This ensures more energy is retained with the boiler’s heat exchanger for improved efficiency. The cross-fired burner, combined with a new compact modular hydraulic system, also improves the serviceability of the boiler. The new Greenstar Danesmoor features a brand new compact primary heat exchanger, the new oil-fired regular boiler makes access to the boiler’s interior components even easier than before, without compromising on performance levels. Every surface inside Danesmoor’s new enquiry number 101 combustion chamber is energy absorbing, meaning better distribution of heat and a more efficient use of energy. enquiry number 102 enquiry number 103 enquiry number 105
