The SpiroPress range of pressure control units features a solution ‘to suit every pressurised system’ that facilities managers, engineers and designers are likely to encounter, according to system water quality specialist Spirotech.
A SpiroPress unit keeps pressure constant in closed heating and cooling systems, reducing the danger of air being drawn in through vents and gaskets, or the loss of system water through safety valves when high pressures occur.
Rob Jacques, Spirotech’s national key accounts and technical sales manager, said: “Not every system has been equally well designed, but the SpiroPress units maximise the available expansion volume and reduce system vulnerability.
“This dramatically reduces the frequency of maintenance, as there is no need for top-ups with oxygen-rich water that is the main cause of corrosion inhibitor depletion and which triggers accelerated system deterioration and component failure.
“With fewer system interruptions and shorter down times, environmental impact targets are easier to meet, while an important contribution is also made to achieving optimal efficiency and reduced energy consumption.”
The SpiroPress portfolio includes ranges of MultControl and TopControl units, suitable for varying applications depending on the unit, from closed heating and cooling systems, to marine environments and data centres, to district heating and energy centres.
Solving pressurisation issues in complex heating and cooling systems can be a real headache for installers and engineers.

To mark Clean Air Day, Mark Bouldin, healthy buildings expert at Johnson Controls explains why the UK needs a new approach to clean air in buildings.
If you had the choice of breathing clean air for 90% of the time or 10% of the time, which would you choose? Well, currently, the emphasis is firmly on the 10%. From governments, campaigners and businesses, there has been a huge push to clean the air we breathe outside. And there’s no denying the importance of that. However, given the average member of the British public spends 22 hours of their day indoors, it seems negligent not to place the same level of attention on indoor air quality (IAQ).
