The global population will exceed 9.7 billion by 2050 (United Nations, 2013), which will lead to approximately 70% increase in the number of households from 1.9 billion in 2010 to 3.2 billion in 2050 (I.E. Agency, 2012). Residential and commercial buildings account for about 40% and 26%, respectively, of total energy consumption in U.S. and European households (Marten’s, 2013; I.E. Agency, 2012). About 38% and 36% of U.S. and EU carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are also associated with these buildings. Moreover, as the energy bills rise and governments set the rules to protect the environment, the manufacturer of radiators think about producing higher energy efficient products. So based on this reason they mostly use Aluminium as it could create special features.
Furthermore, today less energy is required compare to 80s because of the development of roof and wall insulations and using double glazed windows. So, the house stays warmer for longer giving the same comfort at lower temperatures. That’s why low temperature radiators have been developed.
Aluminium extruded radiators are ideal (as the low temperature radiator) because:
They warm up quickly and start the heat transfer in less than 2 minutes. In this case the heat supplier could be set at lower temperature.
Aluminium radiators compare to Steel and Die cast radiators could generate convection flow quicker at lower temperature.
They can work with maximum efficiency even if user set the temperature of boiler between 35 to 45 ° C.
Also, the ever-increasing demand for heating in different sectors, along with more preventative regulations on greenhouse emissions, has forced different countries to seek new alternatives to heat buildings such as district heating system (DHS).
Based on these reasons Anit has developed numerous technologies at its research and development department in order to manufacture UNIQUE LOW TEMPERATURE RADIATOR. Anit Radiator is the most compatible radiator in the market to work with Low temperature heating systems such as low temperature District heating systems and heat pumps and can save 30 % energy without installing thermostatic valves.
Couple of technologies that have been developed by Anit Radiator are as follow:
Micro-fin technology (More surface area)
Tubular Column Design (More Convection Flow and create Chimney Effect)
Low H2O technology (low water content)
Using Aluminium 6063 (99.97 % Pure Aluminium) that create higher thermal output.
