The Duck Vap radiant heating panels have been designed to respond to the need to ensure optimum comfort from a radiant system in all industrial environments where a traditional heating plant is not feasible.
One or more steam generators under vacuum, or VAS, installed in a sheltered location outside, cause the steam to expand inside the suitably modified pipes of the radiant heating panels, with condensate return by gravity.
The circuit is closed and sealed, there is no consumption of steam and consequently no need to top up the water. The vacuum system steam to be produced at a maximum temperature of 110°C, corresponding to a relative pressure of 0.45 bar (1.45 bar absolute).
The main advantages involve exceptionally uniform temperature in the environment, fast stabilisation of the operating conditions, and a particularly simple and long lasting system with reduced energy consumption (almost no power consumption).
The Sabiana Duck Vap radiant panels are produced in 6 different models, with 2 standard colours, and others upon request. Each model features elements measuring 4 and 6 metres in length (3 and 5 metres upon request). Each element can be easily connected by welding the pipes supplied with belled ends.
The first and last elements are fitted with welded headers and tested in the factory using advanced automated processes.
Since 1971, over 25,000 installations have been made in all types of environments (small, medium and large industry, shopping centres, aircraft hangars, sporting and recreation facilities, animal sheds), demonstrating the soundness of the product, including installations in new and highly innovative applications, such as the increasingly widespread air-conditioning of production areas so as to guarantee maximum comfort and unaffected productivity all year round, even in the hotter summer months.
Heating by radiation means absolute silence, no forced movement of the air, uniform temperatures throughout the environment, and no risk of fire. It means energy savings, as people, the walls and the floor are heated directly, while the air is only heated indirectly, with consequent minimum stratification of the heat. It means optimising the occupation of the spaces, as the walls and floors are free to be used. It means constant efficiency over time and no routine maintenance on the product, with the peace of mind that, year after year, at the start of each season, this product will continue to provide incomparable comfort.
