Clina Capillary Tube Systems

 The ideal radiant heating and cooling system for solar power systems and heat pumps: Flat, fast, comfortable, efficient, environmentally friendly, and long lasting.

 

 

High demands are placed on the heating technology of modern buildings today. One goal is to noticeably reduce energy consumption without limiting comfort or the operating safety of the system for the benefit of the environment and the pocketbook of the operator.

 

 

This goal can only be reached through a more efficient use of resources, particularly the use of environmental energy. This in turn requires a technology which works at significantly lower hot water temperatures. The Clina capillary tube system meets this demand better than any other heating system as it requires water at 28˚C to 31˚C only to heat a room.

 

 

In addition, you can also use it quite simply for COOLING. The user profits from the extremely large exchange surfaces of the Clina capillary tube mats here as well. Even at water temperatures between 16 and 18 °C, a comfortable “silent cooling” without uncomfortable noise or draft effects is possible. People in the room are cooled or warmed mainly by radiation from the Clina mats, which corresponds to the natural temperature regulation in the human body. This makes them feel more comfortable.

Advantages of CLINA System

 

Flat and Invisible Installation.

Needs Only a Minimum of Space

 

The Clina capillary tube mats can be installed directly under the flooring surface. All flooring surfaces are suitable for this. The low installation height (minimum 5 mm) and the flexibility of the capillary tubes do not only offer a large degree of freedom in design for new buildings, but also often enable the installation of floor heating in older buildings. Problems with statics can be ruled out, as the water of capillary tube systems while filled with water only amount to approximately 900 g/m².

 

Quick reaction

 

Thanks to the installation of the Clina capillary tube mats directly underneath the flooring surface, the Clina system reacts very quickly. The desired surface temperatures are reached after only a few moments. Even with traditional installation in the screed, the Clina capillary tube system only requires approximately ¼ of the heating time compared to conventional floor heating systems. The system reacts faster than conventional floor heating systems also when turning the heat off.

Comfortable and maintenance free

 

The Clina capillary tube system homogeneously warms the rooms due to its large exchange surfaces. Temperature differences within heated/cooled surfaces are not perceptible. Thus people in the room are cooled or warmed mainly by radiation from the Clina mats, which makes them feel more comfortable. Every room can have its temperature regulated individually. The Clina capillary tube mats are absolutely maintenance free. Due to the narrow diameter of the individual capillaries and the surface tension of the water, they are self ventilating.

 

Efficient and environmentally friendly

 

The surfaces of the Clina tube mats are a multiple larger than those of conventional floor heating systems. This allows the system to provide the same heat to a room with 8 – 10 ° C lower supply water temperatures. Clina is the most effective heating system, particularly in combination with a heat pump. In addition, the heat gained from solar panel systems can also be used for heating in the winter. The polypropylene used for the production of Clina capillary mats, tubes, and fittings has a positive ecological balance, is entirely recyclable, and can be reused if selective refurbishment is carried out. Production of capillary tube mats generates no waste and does not pollute water or air; the production remnants are 100% recycled.

 

Safe and long lasting

 

Clina capillary tube mats are manufactured under strict quality control including pressure tests at 20 bar, which corresponds to 10 times the operating pressure. There is a 10 year warranty for Clina capillary tube mats. After the conclusion of the work, the entire Clina capillary tube system will be subjected to a multi-step pressure test as per factory guidelines.

Long term tests have revealed that capillary tube mats made from PP have a lifetime of at least 50 years, without losing quality. At the same time, the water used as a cooling/heating medium remains clear and clean due to the air saturation.

 

Heating and cooling in one system

 

The Clina capillary tube system can also be used for cooling if the capillary tube mats are not installed in the floor, but in the walls and/or ceiling instead. The Clina capillary tube mats are simply installed under plaster or to the rear side of gypsum plaster boards. Warm water flows through the system for heating during colder periods; cold water is used for cooling in the summer. A prerequisite for the double application of heating and cooling is the existence of heat and cold producer such as a reversible heat pump.
