TREAT HEATING CIRCUITS: NOW, A NECESSITY.
Both in new construction and renovations, water quality is essential to ensure efficient heating operation and prevent breakdowns. Boiler manufacturers, regulatory, economic and technological requirements require it.
To achieve increasingly lower energy consumption and optimize performance, heating technologies are currently more complex and sensitive:
- Finest materials (thermal reactivity, cost)
- Innovative alloys (stainless steel, aluminium, silicon, etc.) polymers and multi-material circuits
- Important temperature variations (low temperature, condensation, solar primary, etc.)
- Narrow passage sections, reduced water volumes (compact boiler bodies, low-capacity radiators,
underfloor heating, micro-exchangers
These technological advances accentuate the risks:
- Risk of galvanic corrosion (cell effect between metals of different natures).
- Formation of sludge and calcareous deposits, even if they are minimal, are critical in the passage sections that are increasingly finer (radiators, boiler bodies, etc.)
- Bacterial proliferation caused by low temperatures (underfloor heating, reversible ceilings,
Eliminate risks in closed circuit waters; Treating the heating water is the only solution to preserve the
installations and gain efficiency in a lasting way.
What to do?
Both in new construction and in renovations, treat heating circuits systematically to gain in:
- Energy Efficiency
- Reliability of your facilities
- Longevity of your equipment
- Peace of mind for your customers
Ensure efficiency and avoid dangers in heating systems.
The key points of your installation
1- Temperature sensor
Temperature sensors at key positions in the system provide data for optimal system control. Lime and sludge deposits interfere with the measurement. The result is erroneous and ineffective control of the entire system.
The pumps make the heat reach the appropriate points in the system. Limescale and sludge deposits endanger operation. Failure or poor performance of one pump can throw the entire system out of balance.
3- Valves and mixers
Valves and mixers such as hydraulic leveling take care of the desired distribution of heat, for example in radiators. If these fail due to lime or mud, the radiators do not heat up at all or not at their maximum performance. In addition, the air can cause significant noise in the heating system.
4- Boiler / heat exchanger
The exchangers offer high thermal conductivity with low heat losses during transmission thanks to materials such as copper. Lime deposits insulate the heat exchanger and prevent heat transmission. The result is high energy consumption costs and even breakdowns.
