102 N EWS & P R O D U C T P R O F I L E S The cost of un-insulated pipe brackets From Armacell Insulating pipe brackets for hot and cold water services can eliminate several issues associated with energy loss and corrosion. If the pipe is not thermally insulated significant heat loss can occur, with each un-insulated pipe bracket losing around £2.00 each in wasted energy. Considering the number of brackets in a system, this soon adds up. Conversely, insulated pipe brackets cut total energy losses in the system by half, resulting in a payback of only a few months. For cold and low temperature installations, cold bridging and condensation issues can cause corrosion of pipework. enquir y number 900 Kensa Evo removes the guesswork from CoP To maximise returns from the RHI, Kensa Heat Pumps has developed the innovative Evo ground source heat pump series, delivering improved efficiencies and clever design features for easy installation.Guy Cashmore, co-founder of Kensa Heat Pumps comments: “In designing the Evo we set out to deliver a worthy successor to the best-selling Compact.
