SAVING MONEY, WATER & CO2 EMISSIONS, BY
RESTORING AND CLEANING-UP YOUR HEATING
OR COOLING WATER SYSTEMS DOESN’T HAVE
TO BE EXPENSIVE NOR INTRUSIVE
In a society now where there is now more need
than ever to address climate change, water use
and sustainability-focus is now being placed
on both habits, policies and legislation within
organisations to ensure we all play our part.
It is great to see new “greener” technologies
advancing and becoming more commercially viable,
but this uptake still has some way to go if we are
to meet the UK’s commitment of signing-up to the
Paris climate change agreement (November 2016).
The fastest impact we can make towards achieving
carbon Zero is a “call to action” on addressing our
current infrastructure and habits, whether it be
intelligent controls for energy use, better building
insulation, electric cars, triple glazed windows and
so on. The point is 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 of course by the never-ending need of
education to change habits within society.
One area of improving energy e iciency is within
the performance of residential and commercial
properties heating and cooling systems, as once
commissioned the e iciency of these systems is
never calculated, however information pertaining to
the correlation of water quality within these systems
mentions things one should be aware of:
A 1mm 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 e iciency
due to the build-up of excess air /hydrogen Gas
within the radiators – Carbon Trust.
A new system can be up to 6% less e icient
within a matter of weeks if it hasn’t been treated
correctly – DECC.
When taking this into account, it also should
be noted the impact on sustainability (due to the
above), as “dirty water” systems impact the lifecycle
of system components, reliability and water loss.
Just as a car owner understand the need to service
and maintain their car's engine (in particular the
oil and filter change), so should we understand the
need to maintain a high level of water quality within
closed loop heating & cooling systems.
Manufactured by Vexo International (UK) Ltd
and available exclusively from BSS Industrial-The
Patented and award winning BOSS X-POT (all-inone)
closed loop water conditioning unit, along
with 2 x Environmentally friendly “non-flush” BOSS
X-PO additives have already been retrofitted onto
thousands of systems throughout the UK, with BOSS
X-PO10 Inhibitor having proven energy savings
of up to 10%, and the BOSS X-PO35 unique “non
flush” cleanser providing customers HUGE capital
and operational budget savings- whilst improving
system performance and temperatures. This is
a user friendly “retro-fit solution” example of an
Innovative technology available today addressing
improvements to current infrastructure. Its why
it’s being used by many of the UK’s Universities,
Hospitals, Schools, Commercial and Government
buildings to restore performance, reliability and
lifecycle WITHOUT the need to waste any water!
Making it a non-intrusive and cost-e ective solution.
