ALPHA HEATING INNOVATION | SPECIFIERS’ GUIDE APRIL 2017 | BUILDING PRODUCTS 23 ARES Tec The ARES Tec range comprises nine floor-standing boilers, covering outputs from 200kW to 900kW. The combustion chambers in this range share the same flue and controls, but can fire up individually and each has its own fan, burner, ignition and safety devices. This assists in the changing demands of a large commercial building as the modular design provides ultimate control and flexibility, so energy efficiency and comfort levels can be optimised. In addition, the ARES Tec boiler features a number of other benefits to ensure maximum energy efficiency. For example, an external sensor (for weather compensation) / domestic hot water sensor and a mixed delivery sensor all come as standard. The heat exchangers also include large serpentine waterways to optimise heat transfer within the system. For those managing a large space, the E8 thermo-controller gives further control of settings and parameters by allowing external pumps and valves to be regulated via temperature sensors. This also lets the ARES Tec easily interface with Building Management Systems (BMS), which are increasingly popular amongst specifiers for commercial buildings. When a number of ARES Tec are cascaded to meet high outputs, the system can serve up to 15 zones across a building. Monitoring is also straight forward, with the E8 providing full diagnostic control of each module and the ability to control timings and individual circuit temperatures. The entire ARES Tec range is compatible with a range of accessory safety kits, either the modulating pump, filter, hydraulic separator kit, or the modulating pump and plate heat exchanger kit, can be fitted to protect the longevity of the boiler ensuring the system water never actually enters the boilers waterways. These kits also guarantee boiler/system pressures are kept within specific tolerances, with the use of adjustable high and low pressure switches, an additional overheat stat adds to the high level of safety attributed to this boiler. Also Included is a flow switch, this will activate should there be a lack of circulation caused by closed valves or a blockage. A section of flow pipe is provided with a pocket for each item, allowing them to be simply wired back to the boiler. Other items supplied as standard within this comprehensive kit are individual temperature and pressure gauges and a filter-strainer for installation to the boilers return pipework.
