About aquatherm black system
Aquatherm black system is a system for room climatisation made of polypropylene that is suitable for ceiling, wall and floor installation.
After only 3 years on the market as a system for room climatisation, it has already received many awards and found international acceptance as the next phase of room comfort.
From ceiling cooling in open plan offices to wall heating in family homes, and special applications such as mobile heating and cooling elements, the possibilities are nearly unlimited.
Aquatherm black system heating and cooling panels are exclusively made from fusiolen® PP-R to control room temperatures.
The exceptionally good welding properties and fusion, result in a homogeneous unit, offering maximum security and life span.
Aquatherm black system is connected by fusion welding. The pipe grids can be welded directly in parallel as well as with series connection.
The aquatherm blacksystem panels are installed behind the ceiling, floor, or walls of a room, where they heat or cool these surfaces by a few degrees above or below the ambient temperature.
By radiation exchange with the surfaces, temperatures of the room and furnishings change.
The effect of this system delivers plesant room conditions, without noise and forced air movement, eliminating draughts and making room temperatures easily controllable.
Automatic designed change-over of heated or chilled water completes this system, allowing for individual room control within a building management system.
- For wet and dry construction
- No draughts
- Dust reduction
- Simple control technique
- Thermal properties of the building are enhanced
- System extendable
- Quick installation thanks to high degree of prefabrication
- Even temperature distribution
- Safe connection techniques by thermal fusion
- Push-fit connection for ceiling elements
- Oxygen barrier
- Minimal construction thickness
- Greater architectural design freedom
- Energy saving
Due to its slim construction, aquatherm black system fits tight below the plaster layer or behind the plasterboard. Construction thickness including manifolds, mounting rail and connections amounts to only 24.5mm.
The pipe grids have rectangular manifolds, which can be interlinked. This allows an easy connection e.g. according to the reverse return principle (Tichelmann).
The water volume for the required thermal output is distributed via square pipes (12 mm/25m pipe per m2) within the grids.
The velocity of flow and the pressure drop are minimized. Velocity of flow for a surface area of approx. 10 m2 is below 0.3 m/s.
The aquatherm black system can be installed on metal panels of suspended ceilings, and on plasterboards. Even the embedding in plaster layer or the installation in C-studs with plasterboards is not a problem.
The low weight of only 2.5 kg/m2 (incl. water filling) does not effect the design of the ceiling element construction. The ceiling elements should include 30 mm of fibre glass insulation.
Depending on their design, the pipe grids are connected by means of thermal welding or by pushfit couplings, and connected to the cooling- and heating water circuits.
