Connection to the heat source is made via the primary heating circuit. The heat source supplies water to the Manifold via the Manifold’s Mixing unit to maintain the desired temperature. (this can be set between 20 – 60 Degrees Celsius).
However, a mixing unit may not be required if the heat source can constantly provide the necessary water temperature for the system without over-heating.
The Mixing Unit regulates the water temperature by means of an Actuator-controlled Mixing Valve and blends the heated water from the primary heating circuit with cooler water from within the floor circuits to achieve the ideal design temperature. This temperature is configured during the installation process to match the designed heat requirements, which is determined by heat losses, floor construction, heat outputs and other variables.
