How David Kaiser with Baunach reduces system consumption between 30 and 50% on average:

Journeyman Drin Tahiri (l.) and foreman Jörg Sautter (r.) installed the system.

Baunach Fachpartner, Mr David Kaiser, Managing Director of the Kaiser Nachhaltig heizen GmbH from Gerstetten in Baden-Würtemberg, has the rendeMIX I first got to know it in 2018. Various facilities followed in the following years until today. In 2021, the Netto Markt (brand discount) facility in Hermaringen was implemented, which we would like to introduce to you in this article. David Kaiser uses a rMIX DN25 3×4 R 5 in combination with a rMIX DN25 2×4 RH 35. He is also an advocate of thermostatic balancing and has therefore equipped all air heater heating circuits with a RTB DN20 T20-70 adjustment set (nimble) equipped. Mr Kaiser regulates his heat generator using a VTB DN32s T40-100 Condensing set. Heat recovery is achieved via a VTB DN32s T25-70 Condenser Set realised. We asked Mr Kaiser about the plant and learned why he chose the rendeMIX and thermostatic balancing.

rendeMIX Update - new ball valves for all light versions DN25

In the past, many customers have asked us about our ball valves in the DN25 version. These are indeed functional - but would not fit our high-quality assembly. In addition, there would be a high risk of using a slotted screwdriver instead of an internal hexagon. This could damage the component.

As part of the continuous improvement of our products, we have replaced the previous ball valve with a higher quality one with an aluminium butterfly handle.

rendeMIX 3×4+ sys

 2-circuit compact solution for system separation at the buffer

Those of you who have ever had the pleasure of a rendeMIX 3×4+ on a buffer storage tank know what we are talking about: from doubling to tripling the usable buffer volume. The fact that such results can really be achieved with the methods used here - return utilisation and two-zone discharge - has already been reported several times in the trade press, for example in Sanitär+Heizungstechnik 3/2017:

Hydraulics made visible

In order to make this possible also on systems with system separation, we are now pleased to offer you the rMIX 3×4+ sys present. This has been precisely matched to the operation of a system separation in the low-temperature circuit by means of flow control. This means that nothing stands in the way of efficient storage utilisation!

A good feeling is half the battle

What is the quality of a control loop?

Sensor on CHP

A controller constantly compares a specified SET value with a measured ACTUAL value and determines a reaction (manipulated variable) from the difference (deviation) with the aim of making the deviation between the SET and ACTUAL values as small as possible. If, for example, a constant return temperature of 60°C is required for a CHP unit, this is the SET value, while the ACTUAL value is determined by a temperature sensor. A possible reaction would be a three-point signal that opens, stops or closes a mixing valve via an electric drive so that the return temperature is raised, maintained or lowered.

Why do you actually need both?
Two-zone loading and two-zone unloading?

Which by now word has got around ...

States of charge in the buffer storage tank

States of charge in the buffer storage tank

is that the best possible stratification is the be-all and end-all of the efficient use of buffer storage tanks. Because only the best possible stratified storage tank can still absorb heat when it is already relatively full and release heat when it is already relatively empty. The secret of this benefit lies in the fact that with good stratification the storage tank is always hot at the top and always cold at the bottom (Fig., buffers 2-4), while the thoroughly mixed storage tank is warm from top to bottom (Fig., buffer 1). The border between hot and cold should be as abrupt as possible. The fuller the storage tank, the lower (picture, buffer 3), the emptier it is, the higher (picture, buffer 4) this limit is. In any case, a well stratified storage tank should not contain any hot water at all. (more…)

 

Parallel or one behind the other?

What to do with several buffer storage tanks?

Systems are increasingly being equipped with buffer storage tanks, whether for heat pumps, wood boilers, CHP units or solar systems. It is not uncommon for the necessary storage volume to have to be divided among several smaller tanks because only these fit through the doors or stairwells. This raises the question of whether a parallel or back-to-back connection of buffer storage tanks is the better solution. As usually in life, the appropriate answer is: "It all depends."

Buffer connection on one side

A simple way to improve stratification in the buffer

Two-sided buffer connection

Two-sided buffer connection

It is very common to see in hydraulic plans and installations that heat generators and heat consumers are connected to buffer tanks in separate connections for each height (top, bottom, possibly also centrally). However, this often has a negative effect on the flow and thus on the stratification of the buffer tank, as the following example illustrates. Let's assume that a 28kW log boiler (90°C flow temperature) loads a buffer storage tank, while at the same time a radiator circuit (70/50°C) and a floor circuit (40/30°C) are supplied with a total of 14kW. Let us further assume that the two heating circuits are connected to the buffer by rendeMIX return utilisation with 70/30°C in total. When the buffer is connected on both sides, the entire boiler volume flow flows into the buffer at the top left and is removed again at the bottom left. In addition, the entire system volume flow is taken out at the top right and fed back in at the bottom right. The following formula therefore applies: (more…)

 

Pump speed and flow temperature

More efficiency at the buffer tank with less effort

Some regenerative heat generators, such as wood or pellet boilers or CHP units, may only be operated with a fixed return temperature. For this purpose, a return flow increase (RLA) is used, which feeds parts of the heat generator flow into its return flow. Very often, the pump speed is selected unnecessarily high, which reduces the efficiency of the buffer storage loading. (more…)

 

Drinking water reservoir? If already - then already!

The new rTANK

The new rTANK

Until a few years ago, drinking water storage tanks were considered the solution par excellence for heating drinking water, and they are still widely used in the private sector today. And who is surprised? After all, they offer a comparatively high level of comfort with little technical effort and are available at a reasonable price.

With the advent of solar systems, however, it became necessary to reduce the return temperatures to the heating system as low as possible. And at about the same time, the legionella issue arose. Both spoke in favour of instantaneous water heater systems, the hygiene storage tank with corrugated tube heat exchanger and the fresh water station. But is this additional expense really always justified and aren't there other disadvantages? (more…)

 

Thermostatic balancing with RTB valves

The purpose of hydraulic balancing

is to provide the right amount of water to each consumer in a distribution network. This must not be too small, because otherwise the consumer will not be sufficiently supplied with heat. But it must also not be too large, because otherwise its return temperature will rise too much, the supply to other consumers will be impaired and the network efficiency will drop. But what is the "right" amount of water? (more…)

 

Exhaust gas condenser, return flow boost and buffer efficiency

Flue gas condensers continue the eco-trend towards condensing boiler technology

The idea of extracting additional heat from the combustion exhaust gas by condensing the water vapour it contains has now become widely accepted under the term condensing technology for natural gas and fuel oil boilers. In this respect, it can be assumed that the trend towards condensing technology will also continue for wood boilers and CHP units, especially since there are further advantages to be recorded for each of these technologies: (more…)
