Microflex can be used in a range of applications from new construction, to district and industrial heating and plumbing, to linked utility supply between detached buildings, to an increasing range of new renewable energy applications.
Geothermal heat pumps
Geothermal heat pumps operate on the basis that the earth beneath the surface remains at a constant temperature throughout the year and the ground acts as a heat source. They are used for space heating as well as water heating in residential, commercial or institutional buildings.
Air/water heat pumps are based on the fact that heat from ambient air can be boosted to a higher temperature to heat a building throughout the year. They can be used in both residential and commercial or institutional buildings for both space heating and water heating.
Wood pellet boilers
Using wood fuel instead of fossil fuels makes a positive contribution to the environment. Wood is a carbon neutral fuel; it absorbs as much CO2 when it grows as is released when it burns. Wood pellets are usually compressed sawdust or wood shavings. They are uniform in shape and composition, easy to ignite, create little ash and will flow freely through feeding mechanisms such as hoppers and augers.
Biomass and biogas
Biomass refers to living and recently dead biological material that can be used as fuel. Most commonly, biomass refers to plant matter grown for use as biofuels and may also include biodegradable wastes that can be burnt as fuel. Biogas typically refers to a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic materials such as manure, sewage, municipal waste and energy crops. The methane in biogas gives it the ability to be used as a fuel.
