Heat-Rad - Overhead Radiant Heating Systems
Installation of the "Octopus"
Integrated Flue System

Flueing and air supply requirements are given in BS5400 Parts 1 and 2. The information which follows is intended only to give general guidance.

When the size of the air vent required is calculated, if the vent area required is large, it may be more suitable to fit a number of smaller air vents rather than one large vent provided that the sum of the smaller vent areas is not less than the minimum area required.

UNFLUED INSTALLATIONS
HEAT-RAD overhead radiant heating units can be installed without a flue which discharges to atmosphere providing that the building regulations and BS5440 Part 2 are complied with and that the discharge of the flue products does not interfere or affect either occupants or manufacturing processes.

If a flue is not fitted then the volume to be heated by each HEAT-RAD heater must be as detailed below. Also the space must have an openable window, opening direct to outside together with a permanent air vent direct to outside sized as detailed below.

Minimum volume to be heated by each HEAT-RAD heater must be at least:
Model HR.45 / HR.45.FD 130 m3 (4440 ft3)
Model HR.75 / HR.75.FD 220 m3 (7500 ft3)
Model HR.130 / HR.130.FD 380 m3 (13418 ft3)

Size of permanent air vent direct to outside
Model HR.45 / HR.45.FD 95 cm2 plus 35 cm2 per extra 2Kw or part thereof in excess of 6Kw rated heat input
Model HR.75 / HR.75.FD 95 cm2 plus 35 cm2 per extra 2Kw or part thereof in excess of 6Kw rated heat input
Model HR.130 / HR.130.FD 95 cm2 plus 35 cm2 per extra 2Kw or part thereof in excess of 6Kw rated heat input

Typical permanent vent air requirements
  One Heater Two Heaters Three Heaters
Model HR.45 / HR.45.FD 235cm2 (35in2) 445cm2 (65in2) 690cm2 (102in2)
Model HR.75 / HR.75.FD 375cm2 (55in2) 750cm2 (110in2) 1125cm2 (165in2)
Model HR.130 / HR.130.FD 655cm2 (102in2) 1320cm2 (205in2) 1985cm2 (308in2)

Most proprietary building ventilation louvers are approximately only 50% free area. The above areas relate to free area and therefore most proprietary louver sizes will need to be at least doubled.

Where an overhead HEAT-RAD unit is unflued, the discharge of the combustion gases should not impinge on combustible materials, and care should also be taken to ensure that condensation does not form on cold surfaces.

Equipment

FLUED INSTALLATIONS
If an HEAT-RAD overhead unit is to be flued, a down draught divertor is available from Horizon as an optional extra. The down draught divertor is designed to accept standard twin wall flue pipe.

TYPES OF FLUE INSTALLATIONS
HEAT-RAD overhead heating units may be individually flued to atmosphere. Alternatively, the Horizon Octopus flue system is available. An Octopus system allows for the individual exhaust fans on HEAT-RAD units to be deleted, and a flue system connected direct to the end of the heat emitter tube. Up to a maximum of ten heaters per system can be accommodated, the flue pipework is interconnected to a single exhaust vacuum pump to discharge the flue gases to atmosphere

Alternatively, a flue dilution system is available, flue ductwork with divertors is attached to individual HEAT-RAD units and connected by a graded system of flue ductwork to a single flue dilution fan assembly discharging to atmosphere. Systems are available to connect to any number of overhead HEAT-RAD units. An advantage with the flue dilution system is that the building is also ventilated.
