BOILERS: LIGHT COMMERCIAL BAXI EXPLAINS HOW INSTALLERS CAN CAPITALISE ON THE LIGHT COMMERCIAL MARKET, VOKERA BELIEVES CASCADE BOILERS SHOULD HOLD NO FEAR AND EOGB HIGHLIGHTS THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR BURNER MAINTENANCE Smith’s unveils convector Ariston introduces extended warranty packages Smith’s Fan Convectors has launched the Caspian Concealed fan convector, which will meet the needs of contractors and installers who require all the benefits of a fan convector but need to hide them discreetly within the fabric of the building they are heating. The new model is incredibly versatile with different accessories to enable it to be fitted literally anywhere, to face any direction and be positioned in the optimum place the M&E contractor or installer needs to fit it. In line with all Smith’s fan convectors, the Caspian Concealed is compatible with all types of wet central heating systems and functions equally efficiently, whether connected to a conventional boiler or renewable technology, such as biomass boilers or ground or air source heat pumps. Incorporating the latest EC motor technology, which can result in running cost savings as high as 80% and with variable speed control as standard, the Caspian Concealed delivers heat quickly, efficiently and effectively. The Caspian Concealed has four different main accessories which can work together in any combination to create the recessed or concealed heating solution requirements, depending on the project specification. Ariston has introduced extended eight year and 12 year warranties on its Clas HE evo and Clas HE System evo high efficiency boilers. Available from September 28, 2015, the extended warranties are supported by Ariston’s new, and the industry’s first, 24/7 customer service. Both the compact Clas HE evo and Clas HE System evo boast a user-friendly interface, high quality electrical connections and advanced control options. Plus, thanks to a multi-zone external accessory, all evo boilers are capable of managing up to three temperature zones. Clas HE evo boilers also have best-in-class NOx emissions and offer efficiencies of up to 90%, with outputs ranging from 12kW to 38kW. The Clas HE System evo is available in outputs from 18kW to 30kW. All boilers utilise a proven stainless steel heat exchanger alongside an ‘AUTO’ function which monitors the ideal temperature for the heating system, reducing peaks in flow temperature and optimising efficiency. Mustafa Findik, managing director of Ariston UK, said: “We firmly believe in the high quality and longevity of our products. These new warranties have been introduced for the Clas HE evo and Clas HE System evo boilers to underline our belief in their reliability and efficiency. Customers purchasing one of these boilers can be reassured that not only are the products highly efficient, they are also built to last.” SpiroTrap MB3 removes tiniest particles in systems enquiry number 126 Peaks & Plains has been working with Spirotech to help protect the heating systems in properties from dirt by installing the SpiroTrap MB3. Offering advanced specification in a compact and easy to install unit, the SpiroTrap MB3 has been designed to separate and quickly remove even the smallest dirt, both magnetic and non-magnetic particles from a heating system. The SpiroTrap MB3 features an external magnet that can be quickly removed without having to disrupt the system. The action of removing the magnet brings the magnetic dirt particles to collect in the collection chamber prior to draining and flushing the unit. This, combined with the Spirotube at its core, helps to provide optimum dirt separation with a very low flow resistance or effective pressure drop. The SpiroTrap MB3 has been carefully developed with an easy to install, leak-free solution that is also dirt free and hassle free for the end user. It can be fitted to the system horizontally, vertically, or diagonally thanks to the twist-release ring. The drain valve for removing collected dirt is also easily accessible to ensure the maintenance process is as straightforward as possible. Made from brass, the SpiroTrap MB3 comes with an industry-leading 20-year SpiroLife guarantee. enquiry number 128 HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY NOVEMBER 2015 61 enquiry number 127
