The AdeRo climate system is based on the transfer of heat between the ceiling panel and a finely distributed network of plastic capillary pipes, where untreated water of drinking-water quality flows as energy carrier. The ceiling panel then extracts this heat from the underlying space (cooling function). The inner diameter of capillary pipes is so small, and they have all been connected parallel, that water flow is always laminar. This means noise production or cavitation will not be encountered, with relative low resistance in the system. The pipes also work as capillary vessels, which means the AdeRo mats also have a ventilating effect. This system's excellent heat transfer is realised by combining the low wall thickness of capillary pipes with the panel's large contact surface. The small distance between the pipes also helps to realise very uniform temperature distribution across the panel.
Oxygen diffusion takes place in the system due to the use of polypropylene for AdeRo mats and the distribution pipes. The absence of oxygen does not become a problem because only non-corrosive materials are used in the climate ceiling circuit, and because it has been separated from the primary circuit using a stainless steel heat exchanger. The use of non-corrosive materials and the presence of oxygen in the water makes sure untreated water remains clear and safeguards effective system operation.
The permissible system pressure amounts to approximately 4 bar. At the factory, each climate mat is checked for tightness by applying pressure of 20 bar. In addition, another pneumatic tightness check is carried out after installation in the building.
The AdeRo element only has low water content and therefore low heat content. The AdeRo climate system therefore quickly responds to temperature and/or volume fluctuations in the water supply. This means the AdeRo climate system is ideal for change-over systems.
