Megaflo goes Eco

Published:  15 September, 2010

LONDON: Within one of history's most distinctive engineering achievements, Tower Bridge, hot water specialists Heatrae Sadia yesterday launched the next generation of it's Megaflo HE unvented cylinder, the Megaflo eco.

Using 90% recyclable materials, with nearly 30% improvement on heat loss and 20% improvement in flow rate at low pressure, the Eco Megaflo fulfills at least Band C or better.

For convenience, it has been designed to fit into standard airing cupboards, as it has a width of 579mm, a carry handle at the top and finger recesses at the bottom, and the cylinder itself carries a lifetime guarentee.

"At Heatrae Sadia, we always try and look at things differently," said sales and marketing manager Spencer Clark, "and part of the new Megaflo eco range will have specific low to zero carbon offerings for use with solar collectors and air source heat pumps, which like all models, will have impressive heat loss performance."

The company also plans to lobby for standardised cylinder testing. "We believe that heat loss is the key parameter that all cylinders should be measured against," Mr Clark said, "so that installers and specifiers can have confidence in the equipment they are selecting.  To this end, clear, generic testing procedures have to be the minimum standard for our industry and as members of the HWA*, we will be encouraging the association to recognise this as its primary objective as we move into 2011.”
