NEWPRODUCTS iTherm gives plumbers chatter-free solution Inta’s new range of thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) is proving to be a heating essential for plumbers, with an innovative anti-chatter cartridge making it the ultimate ‘fit and forget’ product. All of Inta’s TRVs feature a liquid filled sensor and have a sliding tail piece that enables them to be fitted in any orientation. In addition to being bi-directional, the majority of the range has been recognised as Class A efficient and has also been granted Keymark approval. The TRVs, which are available in a variety of different sizes, have a control range of 0-30°C, a maximum working pressure of 10 bar and a maximum flow temperature of 110°C. The in-built frost protection setting, optional lockshield and choice of either a white or chrome finish makes the range the most comprehensive on the market. Stuart Gizzi, director at Inta, said: “We are always looking to develop products that go the extra mile. While TRVs are a relatively straightforward staple in every plumber’s toolbox, we have made our range work harder by eliminating the noise sometimes experienced post-installation. “We’ve also ensured our TRVs are as flexible as possible, making them the ideal choice for retrofits and trickier installations.” Leisure Sinks goes with the Aquaflow The Aquanomic Aquaflow (TAF1CM/-AN) kitchen mixer tap from Leisure Sinks has been designed as an economical way of complying with the latest Building Regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes. Manufactured from engineered chrome brass, the tap is 175mm high and capable of operating at pressures up to 4.0 bar. The Aquanomic Aquaflow has factory-fitted flow restrictors, making installation no more complicated than other taps. The Aquanomic range has been developed using a water usage calculator to ensure that flow is restricted to 3.8 litres per minute, ensuring less waste and lower running costs. All of the company’s taps come complete with a five -year warranty. Leisure Sinks products are regularly tested by independent inspectors to guarantee that they are kept to the highest standards. enquiry number 112 enquiry number 113 Snickers has launched its ‘First Layer’ garments for the oncoming winter. The collection includes hats, undershirts, pants, long Johns, socks and ‘body engineered’ undergarments. The ‘First Layer’ undergarments are designed to keep you warm and to transfer moisture away from the body. The materials are also blended with nano-sized bamboo charcoals, which have anti-odour properties. These working clothes provide ventilation, giving the ability to control and regulate the heat emitted from the body. The next generation of shower pumps from Salamander will be introduced under the CT label. CT ‘X’tra and the brass ended CT ‘Force’ is the new family of robust, regenerative shower pumps which boost hot and cold water supplies to all types of shower mixer valves or to any single tank-fed appliance. There are ‘enhanced’ technological and design features across all models, with the products remaining at the existing prices. The critical area of development has been the motor pump integration to lessen vibration and improve cooling for greater pump efficiency (patent pending). The new integrated design also means much lower noise and a more compact footprint for easier, more flexible fitting. The standard two year warranty can be extended under the Pumpwise Scheme. Ventilation systems market leader, Vortice, has launched a new range of twin fans and acoustic box fans designed to run quietly for use in applications like museums and libraries. The Twin fans can either run on a duty share basis, or as one fan running normally and the other as a standby should there be a failure on the first. Requiring virtually no maintenance, these fans involve long runs of ductwork and have PIR sensors and Class O lining in the boxes for ultra quiet running. The acoustic fans have the same application as the twin fans, but with a single fan rather than including a back-up. The twin fans will be available from January 2014 and the acoustic fans will follow shortly afterwards. enquiry number 114 18 DECEMBER 2013 HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY enquiry number 111 New CT range development Body engineering for the winter New twin fans and acoustic box enquiry number 115
