Top marks for Essco's EDGE heat interface unit

heat interface unitAs part of Essco’s ongoing commitment to improving the efficiency of UK heat networks, their latest EDGE heat interface unit has been tested to the BESA HIU standard. Test results include a WVART of just 28°C [1] and a quick domestic hot water response, meaning the EDGE-T comes out top for communal and district heating performance.

Matt Lowe, Commercial Director at Essco, comments – “We’re delighted to announce the results of the BESA HIU testing. These results confirm that our EDGE unit delivers high-efficiency performance, low return temperatures and accurate system control – all key to running an efficient system”

He continues - “Results can be attributed to the use of first-class components, including ESBE SLB valves, the rolls Royce of flow control, and Minibems IoT technology for internet-connected remote management. This coupled with Essco’s quality design and manufacturing capability makes for a top performing HIU”
