Powrmatic NVx August Installations

Powrmatic NVx Installations – August 2017

We are just half way through the month and have completed lots more Powrmatic NVx heater installations around the UK. Here are some short case studies with photographs from some of the installations we have carried out. We can design, supply and install any type of heating appliance and equipment throughout the UK. We also offer a breakdown and maintenance service for existing equipment.

Clicking on the photographs will show a larger hi res picture in a separate window.

(1) Concrete Products Manufacturer
A few weeks ago we received an enquiry from a cast stone manufacturer in Northampton. On visiting site we were asked to quote to remove and replace some failed Reznor heaters. The site had large Air Handling units installed with damaged heat exchangers. After careful discussions with the client, they were removed and two Powrmatic NVx heaters were installed to replace them.

The overall size of the original units being Air Handlers was large, we had to patch up both inside and outside walls where the fresh air supply duct work was previously installed. As a company we have a pair of general builders who we employ direct. They visited site after our Gas Safe guys had been in and completed making good. Its handy having some experienced building operatives not only for patching up, but for opening up holes in buildings and safe roof working.

The client decided to retain the existing Smart Com controllers, we simply renewed the wiring and left the controllers in place. The site is dirty, there is plenty of concrete dust everywhere. For this reason a balanced flue was installed, drawing combustion air from outside the heated space to limit accumulation of debris within the burned section on the heater.

The old installation ran purely on full fresh air, contamination of the heater was limited but the additional fuel cost of heating outside air was a major concern. The big play off was using a standard unit heater to heat recycled air. Whilst the cost savings will be great and a major plus, contamination of the unit could become a major negative. One of the commitments made by the client was that the heaters would be blown out with compressed air regularly. Giving the fan a good brush down and blasting through into the tubular area of the heater will remove settled debris. They appreciate that they will have to do this to keep the new heaters in tip top condition, but given the savings on fuel they will still save money as the efficiency of the Powrmatic NVx is higher than the heaters removed.

As always, the Powrmatic NVx heaters ran up fine and commissioning was a simple task.










(2) Small Warehouse Unit
This installation only required a small heater, the client requested a suspended unit. Another Powrmatic NVx heater was selected and installed. A Heatmiser IQ+ controller was installed at low level for operating the unit and the gas main was installed in copper using press fittings. A warmairheaters.com own brand high level destratification fan was installed to bring the warmer air back from high level and to displace the cold air.

(3) Bi Directional Installation
For heating a long narrow space, the Bi Direction version of the NVx works exceptionally well. Historically two heaters would be used, one at either end of the building. Where site conditions allow, one single heater located in the middle of the heated space blowing both ways is generally satisfactory. A Heatmiser IQ + controller was installed and the gas main was ran in copper with press fittings. The Bi Directional heater is a very handy  unit in the right conditions and can work out cost effective.

(4) Powrmatic NVx Car Workshop
Another installation we carried out in a car workshop. Unit was suspended blowing down towards the working area. Again control was provided by a Heatmiser IQ+ and gas main was installed using copper and press fittings.
