Dunham-Bush trench heating system specified for Advanced Manufacturing Park’s Technical Centre in Rotherham.
Dunham-Bush’s trench heating system was ideal for the project as it is a successful solution for keeping heat in and cold out in commercial buildings. It does this by combating effects of down droughts on cold surfaces, such as large glazed areas and outside walls.
This new building provides flexible offices and workshops for up to 11 tenants involved in industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, marine, petrochemical and power generation.
Main contractor for the construction work is Britcon Construction and the heating installation work was carried out by Wytek Electrical & Mechanical Ltd.
In total 190 metres of Dunham-Bush Hydrocourse heating system was installed, making it suitable for both low-pressure hot water and medium temperature hot water.
System flow and return temperatures are 70℃ and 50℃ respectively, while room temperatures are maintained at a comfortable 21℃. Measuring only 240mm wide and 150mm deep, the trench system is also unobtrusive with an anodised satin finish and stainless steel cross-bladed grilles and trim.
A key feature of all Dunham-Bush trench systems is the even heat distribution along the length of the heat emitter, their controllability and overall efficiency in operation.
Russell Entwistle, Associate Mechanical Engineer with M & E Consultants, WYG said, ‘The heating demands of the space have been met by a low energy solution with heat provided by means of natural convection.’
