ModuSat® Is Tested to NEW BESA HIU Standard

07 December 2017

Evinox are very proud to announce that the ModuSat® XR Heat Interface Unit has been tested to the BESA (British Engineering Services Association) UK Standard for HIUs, achieving impressive results all round.

Launched in late 2016, the BESA UK Standard for Heat Interface Units was introduced to help designers and specifiers evaluate the performance of a particular HIU on their network. This new standard aims to provide HIU benchmarking, similar in many ways to the well-known SEDBUK scheme for domestic boilers.

Currently, only a handful of manufacturers have published results for the HIU test regime, with Evinox being one of the first to undertake the testing process.

Superb Results for ModuSat® XR

With an overall VWART of just 33.4℃, impressively low domestic hot water return temperatures and the ability to deliver flexible Keep Warm operation, the BESA test results provide a clear, independently verified confirmation that the Evinox ModuSat® XR range delivers outstanding heating and hot water performance for modern heat networks.

Mike Shaw, Commercial Director at Evinox Energy commented “We believe independent testing is a vital step forward for the Communal & District heating industry, and as one of the UKs most established HIU manufacturers, we were determined to be involved from the early stages. Our latest ModuSat® XR and XR-ECO models have been developed very much with the new standard in mind and we’re confident that this regime from BESA will lead to more efficient heat networks being designed and delivered”.

The BESA standard is currently optional, however, Evinox believes this will be a mandatory requirement in the near future, and asks designers and specifiers to start insisting on the use of BESA tested units for their heat network projects going forward.
