Grundfos Pumps ALPHA2 – Delivering on
Energy Efficiency

For many years, Grundfos Pumps has been committed to                   Proven technology
environmentally responsible production. Grundfos were the first to     Over 2 million ALPHA2
market an A-labelled pump, and the drive to discover even more         pumps have already been installed in
effective solutions is continuously powering Grundfos forward.         Europe – so the technology is well proven.
Grundfos are committed to driving technological progress with
innovative, superb quality products.                                   Quick & easy to install
   The EU Ecodesign Directive on energy using products (EuPs)          ALPHA2 fits onto the same pipe work as a 15-50 or 15-60 – it even
means that all glandless domestic circulators sold in the EU must      fits on the same pump housing and yet it is even more compact so
meet, or exceed, new and more stringent energy-efficiency              takes up less space. Wiring could not be easier, with the unique
requirements from 2013. Which means that only the most efficient       ALPHA plug and pump technology, simply wire the cable to the
circulators on the market today – such as the Grundfos A rated         ALPHA plug & click into place at the front of the ALPHA2. Also the
ALPHA2 will qualify.                                                   ALPHA2’s unique one touch operation means setting is simple.

Most advanced energy efficient pump                                    to conserving our planet. Don’t wait for 2013 start saving now!
Thanks to the unique AUTOADAPT function ALPHA2 is able to
analyse system demand and automatically and continuously
adapt performance to suit – with minimal power

Environmental impact
With over 120million circulator pumps in Europe, an
estimated 44 billion kWh could be saved each year
– the equivalent to 10 conventional power plants!

ALPHA2 will save your customers money
Under typical operation, A-rated pumps such as
the Grundfos ALPHA2, can use up to 80% less
energy than a typically installed (D-rated) pump.
The ALPHA2 operates down to a little as 5 watts
– which can be monitored on the easy to read
LED display on the face of the pump.

Eureka! Non-toxic Ethylene Glycol!
EUREKA is not a word commonly associated to the world of heat transfer fluids and,
to be truthful, it took many years of R&D before that ‘magic moment’ finally arrived.
In concise terms Hydratech DeTox™ fluids facilitate more efficient heat transfer,
reduced power consumption and lower cost of installation when compared with
heating and cooling systems filled with Propylene Glycol (PG) based fluids.
    Our detoxified products eliminate the worry of installing dangerous Ethylene
Glycol (EG) fluids as there is no risk to children, adults or pets. In association with
animal welfare societies, FDA, ASTM and other standards organisations we are
promoting the safety benefits of DTX products to all sectors where standard
(toxic) EG is used.
   Following the discovery a complete range of DTX fluids was formulated with
proven inhibitors for several applications. Including;
•    Thermox DTX         Geothermal & Air Source Heat Recovery
•    Solaris DTX         Solar Thermal & High Temperature
•    CoolFlow DTX        Refrigeration & Air Conditioning

                                     The DeTox™ technology is also being utilised in
                                     a range of patented waterless (liquid) coolants
                                     for diesel engines. As with all heat transfer fluids
                                     manufactured by Hydratech, the DTX range
                                     was extensively tested in accordance with
                                     BS6580 and ASTM D1384 and proven to
                                     exceed all corrosion resistance standards.
                                        To underpin the DTX range Hydratech have,
                                     for many years, manufactured ’traditional’
                                     PG, EG and vegetable based fluids. CoolFlow
                                     ECO2 and Thermox FXC2 still remain the fluids
of choice for customers wanting a ‘green solution’ in their systems. Hydratech also
provide a technical consultancy service that is second to none.
   So the next time you need specialist advice on heat transfer fluids, be sure to
call the experts!
                                                                    For your FREE tickets visit

   Founded in Germany by Kurt and Axel Krannich in 1995, the then
Krannich Solartechnik installed PV systems ranging in size from 1 to
10 kW over one year. Currently, the average annual installation
capacity of the complete Krannich group amounts to 250 megawatts.
Since 2006, Krannich has been ranked among the leading suppliers in
the solar industry.
   Krannich’s product portfolio consists of solar modules, mounting
systems and inverters for grid connected installations. Cultivating solar
energy is a responsible and innovative task and for the Krannich Solar
team there is no challenge that can’t be solved - from a carport roof
installation to the largest mega tracking project.
   To ensure product and services of the highest quality, the company
has introduced the Krannich Care Code. As a symbol of excellence
and integrity, only those who adhere to Krannich’s guidelines and who
hold this quality mark will be allowed to install Krannich systems.
   Krannich recently strengthened its European presence by launching
a UK subsidiary in Autumn 2010. In May 2011 they led the way in the
UK market, forming new brand partnerships with Bosch and                    employs over 250 members of staff

Wilo’s ‘A’ rated high efficiency small circulating pumps – Wilo-Stratos
PICO and Wilo-Smart A - offering up to 90% energy savings over
standard pumps - will be the Wilo stars of the Renewable Roadshows
in 2011. Both are ‘A’ rated small circulators with five year ‘A label
warranties’. These pumps put Wilo in a strong position with the new
regulations relating to energy efficient small pumps from Europe,(ErP),
that will outlaw conventional, standard pumps across Europe from
2013 in stand-alone installations and from boiler integrated pump ‘set
ups’ – combis and system boilers – from 2015.
   Wilo had its best ever year worldwide in 2010, a trend that was
reflected in the company’s performance in the UK, and it continues to
grow its marketshare in 2011. Voted Pump Manufacturer of the Year in
2011 in the Pump Industry Awards, Wilo pumps are continuing to
grow in popularity with installers with increasing numbers switching to
the Wilo brand. Available through all the main merchant channels and
from an ever wider range of independent merchants across the UK,
Wilo domestic pumps are as ‘green’ as they get, with impeccable
environmental credentials.

Radiators – the logical answer
to renewable heating
When it comes to sharing heat in a home or a building that benefits
from a renewable heating system, radiators are streets ahead of other
options. And as you might expect, Stelrad offers a range of options
that will be spot on.
   You may have read articles saying that ‘underfloor’ is your only
option with the lower operating temperatures that renewable systems
provide. Simply not true. You need to consider a larger heat emitting
surface but not one where the heat emission can be compromised by
the floor covering you choose.
   Stelrad’s new Vertical radiator range offer a much larger heat
emitting surface and take up less horizontal space on the walls so
provides an ideal option for renewable heating systems whilst offering
additional space for interior decorators. And its new K3 radiators offer
three panels and three convector fins for the same wall size as single
or double panel radiators – another excellent way to get more heat
into a room.

Vertical radiators – pleasing and practical                                ‘boiler driven’ heating systems. Radiators, particularly the latest

                                                                           Another major development is the ‘K3’ – a triple panel radiator that
