EDGE scores top marks for BESA HIU test

EDGE Scores Top Marks for BESA HIU Test

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the efficiency of UK heat networks, the Essco EDGE heat interface unit has been tested against the latest BESA (The Building Engineering Services Association) HIU Test Regime. Test results include a VWART of just 28°C1 and a quick domestic hot water response, meaning the EDGE-T comes out top for performance.

Matt Lowe, Commercial Director at Essco, comments – “We’re delighted to announce the results of the BESA HIU testing. These results confirm that our EDGE unit delivers high-efficiency performance, low return temperatures and accurate system control – all key to running an efficient system”

He continues – “Results can be attributed to the use of first-class components, including ESBE SLB valves, the Rolls Royce of flow control, and Minibems IoT technology for internet-connected remote management. This coupled with Essco’s quality design and manufacturing capability makes for a top performing HIU”
