Microflex, a product by Watts Industries UK, is designed to maintain the temperature of fluid within systems and supports the growing trend for renewable heat systems such as ground source and air source heat pumps.
External pipe installations which transfer heat from source to individual dwellings or buildings are benefitting from the utilisation of pre-insulated pipe, particularly as renewable energy system continue to gather pace.
Dave Raynor product manager Watts UK, said:"Microflex has always been a product that has had a vital part in the HVAC industry but is entirely suitable for supporting renewable energy installations which are growing in popularity as homeowners seek more sustainable and efficient ways of providing their homes with heating and hot water".
As the way we specify our domestic and commercial heating systems continues to evolve and shift further towards renewable methods, the importance of building efficient thermal networks has never been more apparent. Using pre-insulated pipe ensures quality thermal networks are specified and installed with heat being efficiently transferred maximising efficiencies and performance.
Dave added: "We recognise that it is essential to support the evolution of the plumbing and heating industry and we do this by giving specifiers and installers opportunities to choose flexible solutions for essential parts of systems. “Microflex gives a high-quality solution, and due to its pe-x foam insulation its performance doesn’t degrade over time. Coupled with its installation process, which requires no specialist tools, installers are able to complete entire systems without the need for specialist subcontractors.”
