The evolution of water pumps

The evolution of water pumps

Introducing the new award winning DAB e.sybox   

If you look at pressure boosting pumps over the last twenty years you will quickly see they all look exactly the same, things are about to change. The new DAB E.sybox is primarily designed to increases water pressure to all hot and cold water taps within your building, but it is also designed for today. Gone are the awkward connections, inaccessible valves and expansion vessel. DAB have provided an integrated housing compartment that contains a tool kit, the installation and user guide.
This thing even has wireless connectivity, it won’t be long till someone plugs in a Raspberry Pi and starts monitoring it from their smart phone.

This modern design does not detract from its practicality though. It can be installed vertically or horizontally into small spaces, it also has flexible connections so it can sit away from walls or other obstructions.

 It is widely accepted that low water pressure in the home is an increasing problem. Any solution to this problem will have to adapt itself to the changing demands of the home. We all get visitors at weekends, some of us have children that grow at an alarming rate, and our water demands change from day to day. So any system will need to increase water pressure as and when required. The e.sybox can boost water pressure to a maximum head pressure of 6 Bar with a flow rate of up to 2 Litres/second.
Washing the car, irrigating the garden will not affect water pressure in bathroom or shower performance.

The system can be used as an e.sybox single standalone unit or as an e.sybox twin installation to give even more flexibility.

The tech specs

• Water cooled motor and sound dampening casing creating the quietest booster pump available today
• Energy efficient variable speed motor operating from 0.3 KW to 1.5 KW
• Powerful performance with Flow up to 2 Litres/second and head pressure up to 6 Bar
• Self priming suction lift down to 8 Metres
• Dry running protection
• Frost protection
• Anti-cycle protection
• Anti-vibration mountings
• Flexible installation with horizontal or vertical position also optional wall mounting accessory kit
• Variable positions for inlet and outlet pipework
• Integrated chamber with expansion vessel, tool kit and installer manual
• Wireless connectivity and modular design can expand the pump system up to a 4 pump booster set
• Optional twin pump booster set kit
 • Optional Integrated water storage tank available

Plans for giant 220 acre Deeside solar park submitted

Plans for giant 220 acre Deeside solar park submitted

Solar farm would support 500 jobs in the construction phase and 27 permanent roles

Solar farm proposed for Deeside

PLANS for a giant solar park on Deeside that would support 500 construction jobs have been submitted.
An application for planning permission has been submitted by Pegasus Group, on behalf of Atem Solar Ltd, to Flintshire Council for the installation of a 45MW solar park, located north of the A548, Weighbridge Road, opposite Deeside Industrial Estate.
The proposed solar park constitutes the installation and operation of photovoltaic (PV) panels.
It is anticipated that the proposed solar park will generate up to 45,000 MWh of power annually, equating to the annual energy consumption of approximately 11,000 households and reduce Co2 emissions. The park would have around 180,000 solar panels on 220 acres.
If approved, Atem Solar Ltd would provide £1.25m toward local skills and training schemes that target young people in the local community.
Also, the proposal will support up to 500 jobs during the construction phase and create a further 27 direct employment positions, post construction. It is hoped that construction will start in summer 2014.
Key issues will include visual impact, site security and ecological impact.
Fears have previously been raised on the potential impact on fertile farmland in the area, one of the main leek growing areas of Wales.
Full assessments have been carried out by qualified professionals and the reports were submitted alongside the planning application. Atem Solar Ltd are also proposing to implement a planting and biodiversity management plan around the solar arrays to include measures to ensure a richer habitat for wildlife.
Atem Solar Ltd is developing solar energy sites across Wales and the rest of the UK.
