The Clausius Heat Pump
Rudolf CLAUSIUS (1822-1888) was a German physicist who enunciated the Second Law of Thermodynamics which is applied to Heat Pumps and Refrigeration Systems. He is considered as one of the first ecologists, and in 1885 predicted “…the future of humanity depends on being able to feed our industries and machines with the only contest of renewable energy…”.
As the UK heat pump industry continues to grow, a new generation of super-efficient ground source heat pumps hits our shores from Portugal’s CEO2 GREEN S.L. (developed through the University of Vigo).
Taking it's name from Rudolf Clausius, it boasts the highest COP (Co-efficient Performance) in the domestic market place for ground source heat pumps. The Clausius has a COP of 5.01 (so that for every 1 kW in you get 5 kW out) and is certified by the Austrian Institute of Technology in accordance with standard EN14511.
This single phase, inverter driven heat pump offers the highest regulation power range currently available in the UK domestic market, within a compact footprint measuring 600 mm x 800 mm x 1140 mm. With this power range and high efficiency, the Clausius is able to cater for the most demanding of domestic heating /cooling and hot water requirements and can even go on to heat your pool.
Some of attributes that are listed by Clausius:
Utilises latest technology from leading suppliers with best in class application
Best economics and performance throughout product range
Provides client with monitoring and transparent logging of key performance indicators
Premium brand components from Honeywell, Copeland, Alfa Laval, Carell, Wilo and Danfoss for best performance and worry free operation
Market leading noise reduction allowing flexible plant room location
25 kW heat pump output from standard single phase supply
7 years Clausius warranty – 2 years parts and labour and 5 years parts warranty included
Unlike other heat pumps in the UK market (which would only supply one requirement), the Clausius heat pump will uplift the hot water temperature from preset temperature up to a maximum 85°C, whilst supplying heating to the property.
It does this by a simple process of utilising the already super-heated refrigerant gas and passing it up through the aluminium coil, which is wrapped around the hot water cylinder. The refrigerant then continues its journey into the heating condenser unit, to provide heating to the property (and this is done at no additional cost to the consumer).
What sets it apart?
The Clausius has a wider power range than the competition (between 5 – 25 kW on single phase electric)
Its components are extremely high quality and sourced from different leading technology producers
Its easy to access and thoughtfully designed
It has capabilities of meeting extra domestic hot water requirements while heating your property
