The patented and award-winning Vexo X-POT (all-in-one) closed-loop water conditioning unit, along with 2× environmentally friendly ‘non-flush’ Vexo X-PO additives, has already been retrofitted onto thousands of systems throughout the UK, and hundreds overseas.
The fastest impact we can make towards achieving carbon Zero is a call to action to address our current infrastructure and habits, whether it be intelligent controls for energy use, better building insulation, electric cars, triple-glazed windows and so on.
There is not only an emphasis on new technologies to address climate change and water conservation, but also retrofitting solutions to current infrastructure to make a significant impact, augmented by the never-ending need of education to change habits within society.
One area of improving energy efficiency is within the performance of heating and cooling systems in residential and commercial properties as, once commissioned, the efficiency of these systems is never calculated. However, information pertaining to the correlation of water quality within these systems mentions facts one should be aware of:
- A 1-mm layer of limescale will cause a 7% increase in energy input to the boiler to meet the same heat demand.” – Carbon Trust
- An estimate of between 5–10% loss of efficiency due to the build-up of excess air/hydrogen gas within the radiators – Carbon Trust
- A new system can be up to 6% less efficient within a matter of weeks if it hasn’t been treated correctly” – DECC
- Indications are that dirt or other deposits can cause very large measurement errors of over 10%” – AECOM/DECC/BSRIA (an investigation into Heat Meter Errors)
When taking this into account, it also should be noted the impact on sustainability (due to the above), as ‘dirty water’ systems affect the lifecycle of system components, reliability and water loss. Just as a car owner understand the need to service and maintain his car engine (in particular the oil and filter), so should we understand the need to maintain a high level of water quality within closed loop heating & cooling systems.
Sold with great success across the globe, the patented and award-winning Vexo X-POT (all-in-one) closed-loop water conditioning unit, along with 2× environmentally friendly ‘non-flush’ Vexo X-PO additives, has already been retrofitted onto thousands of systems throughout the UK, and hundreds overseas. Vexo X-PO10 Inhibitor has proven energy savings of up to 10%, and the Vexo X-PO35 unique ‘non-flush’ cleanser provides customers important capital and operational budget savings, whilst improving system performance and temperatures.
This is a user-friendly retrofit solution example of an innovative technology available today, addressing improvements to current infrastructure. This is why it is used by many of the UK’s universities, hospitals, schools, commercial and Government buildings to restore performance, reliability and lifecycle without wasting any water, making it a non-intrusive and cost-effective solution.
