Oxypod™ removes entrained air from closed looped heating systems. The device removes trapped and dissolves air down to a level that prevents the build-up of black sludge (magnetites). It is achieved without the need of magnets, filters, inhibiters or any further maintenance.
The benefits of installing Oxypod™ include:
- Significant energy reduction in all types of systems.
- Faster heat up and recovery times.
- Lower running temperatures and greater comfort levels.
- Radiators hold heat for longer, reducing the frequency of boiler ignition and burn times.
- Systems are quieter and circulation pumps run without any vibration.
Research has shown that not only will Oxypod™ reduce system friction, but it will also reduce the viscosity of the heating water. As a result, cold spots in heating systems are eliminated. Modelling done by Hull University has demonstrated that Oxypod™ is a genuine crossover to light commercial use: its shape allows it to run in systems with a flow rate of up to 200 litres per minute.
The judges said, "The judging panel was impressed with this self-contained product which combines innovation and simplicity in equal measure. It promises a significant potential impact on the efficiency of central heating systems across a wide proportion of the housing stock. The panel was especially impressed by the tenacity of the applicants in pursuing the innovation journey. Their commitment to the product is inspirational. The panel wish them the very best of success with this innovative and yet enticingly simple product in the future.”
