Purpose and Applications
Heating substations transmit heat from external sources of thermal energy (a centralized heating network or a boiler) to a local heating system through heat-exchange equipment. The circuits of the local system and the heating network are hydraulically separated.
Applications – heating, hot water supply and ventilation of residential, public, and industrial buildings.
Heating substations are divided into “district” units that serve several buildings, and “individual” units for a single building.
Installing a substation allows you to:
• Control the quality of coolant in the local central heating network (filled with treated water, which improves the performance of plumbing or pumping fixtures).
• Use pumps to maintain stable pressure, which helps extend the service life of equipment and reduce running costs.
• Establish a comfortable temperature in each room and economize on thermal energy (individual and district substations are equipped with automatic control systems and devices for metering and regulating temperature).
Nord Company offers heating substations with various power capacities and automation configurations. The main parts used are:
• Folding plate heat exchanges with stainless steel plates by Alfa Laval (Sweden).
• Pumps by Wilo (Germany).
