Substantial energy savings for providing domestic hot water for the tallest building in Reading are being achieved with the installation of Tyco Thermal Controls’ HWAT system for maintaining water temperature in single-pipe systems. Energy savings of up to 50% compared with a recirculation system are expected for the 128 m-high building, called The Blade, which provides over 10 000 m2 of office space over 14 floors.

Contractor NG Bailey opted for Raychem’s HWAT M self-regulating cable and HWAT Eco control system, which was installed by Jointing Technologies of Woking.

The system is based on heating cables attached to the distribution pipes. They have a self-regulating output to keep the water at the required temperature. There is no need for return pipes, valves or pumps.
