ALL THE REASONS WHY STAINLESS STEEL MANIFOLDS ARE IDEAL FOR FLOOR COOLING
01 POLYETHYLENE SHELL
The possibility of combining an expanded polyethylene shell with the stainless steel manifold also makes the product suitable for use in radiant cooling systems. Radiant floor systems are effective in countering the summer sensitive loads, but are unable to intervene against latent loads. Where there are flow temperatures between 15°C and 18°C, there is often condensation on the stainless steel bar: thanks to the polyethylene shell it is possible to avoid this phenomenon.
02 GREATER CAPACITY
Stainless steel manifolds have a flow rate range of up to 20% higher than brass manifolds, thanks to their increased section. The input flow rate for 1” stainless steel manifolds is 5m3/h; for brass manifolds of the same size, it is 4.2m3/h.
03 GUARANTEE FOR THE FUTURE
If we also consider that condensing boilers (heating only) and heat pumps (hot and cold) are becoming more and more frequently used, it is easy to see that the near future will be characterised by high capacity systems, assisted by stainless steel manifolds.
04 COOLING POWER
It was thanks to the design evolution with continuous parallel planes that the stainless steel manifold was able to guarantee a significantly higher flow rate. The possibility of having high flow rates, can improve the performance of the system. It will therefore be possible to obtain a greater cooling capacity and to neutralise a greater level of heat.
