Fabdec launches pre-plumb water heater with 3S Technology
Fabdec are introducing a pre-plumb version of its pioneering Excelsior i range of unvented water heaters. Fabdec launched the Excelsior in 2015 as the world’s first self-sustaining unvented heater, using patented 3S Technology to circumvent the need for an external vessel or floating baffle. The pre-plumb version is primarily aimed at the domestic sector, allowing for a simple and fast installation, even in enclosed spaces. Fabdec unveiled the range at the PHEX Chelsea show in November and it will be available to buy in 2017.

Stuart Doggrell, Fabdec general manager for water heating, said: “The Excelsior i range offers a wealth of benefits to installers, developers and specifiers, and the pre-plumb version just takes it an extra step further in terms of ease of installation. Since launching the Excelsior i last year, sales have been strong across a range of sectors, with heaters going into refurbished apartments, social housing developments, leisure centres, offices and more. With 3S Technology, the vessel requires absolutely minimal maintenance and this is proving particularly popular with social and private landlords. Add in the negligible heat loss and ease of operation, and the Excelsior i is an efficient and cost-friendly hot water solution.”

Fabdec have been a leader in stainless steel vessels for more than 50 years, producing and distributing high quality water heaters from its design and manufacturing HQ in Ellesmere, Shropshire. Its 3S Technology is a unique self-sustaining system, adopting a simple natural phenomenon based on the Venturi effect, a patented system in which atmospheric air is drawn into the system as water is demanded upstream. Because this occurs as per the hot water demand it does not deteriorate in performance over a period of time. The 3S Technology and automatic replenishment of the air gap saves time and money – there are no internal, moving parts in the cylinder and once the Venturi valve is installed, no additional parts are required. The absence of an external expansion vessel means the tank can fit into more compact installation spaces. The 3S technology also maintains 3 bar working pressure at outlet, subject to adequate incoming mains water pressure. Fabdec carried out extensive field trials and completed WRAS approved endurance testing to verify the credentials of this revolutionary technology. The tanks provide 60mm insulation, giving market leading heat loss figures, while the immersion heater, temperature and pressure relief valves have also been insulated for added reduction in heat loss.

The Excelsior i pre-plumb range ensures that the Venturi, the control valves, combination inlet valve, and pump are all pre-assembled and wired to a central wiring centre, adding further to the ease of installation and compact packaging. It will be available in a range of sizes from 175l to 305l to suit most domestic needs.

New Appointment » 9th September 2016
Fabdec appoints new South West technical sales agent
Manufacturer Fabdec is continuing its growth in the South West of England with the appointment of Grant Williams as technical sales agent.

Grant will be working in the south west of the country to develop the Fabdec brand within the HVAC and building services sectors, while maintaining key accounts and installers across the region.

West Midlands-based Fabdec is one of the UK’s leading heating and cooling manufacturers, providing water heating systems for commercial and domestic buildings. The company, which is headquartered in Ellesmere, Shropshire, and has more than 150 staff, has identified the South West as a key area for growth.

Grant, 54, from Chippenham in Wiltshire, has extensive experience in the domestic and commercial heating industry, as well as experience in building services being an accredited Part L SAP assessor. He has worked as an agent for 14 years for various manufacturing companies including British Gas, Worcester Heat Systems and Viessmann.

Grant said: “I’m looking forward to joining the team at Fabdec as it gives me the opportunity to open new doors with existing and new clients in the South West.

“I will be looking to create more contacts for the business across the region, connecting with consultants, architects, local authorities, housing associations and contractors to raise the profile of Fabdec in the area.”

One key product that Grant will be working with is the unique Excelsior I unvented water heating range, which Fabdec launched in 2015 and is patented with 3S Technology. The revolutionary 3S Technology is the first true self-sustaining cylinder, based on an internal expansion system that greatly reduces the need for maintenance and upkeep.

Grant said: “The unique feature within the Excelsior I range means it has the opportunity to greatly reduce the ongoing maintenance for both local authorities and housing associations and as such it has real advantages for both sectors.”

Chris Powell, Fabdec managing director, said: “We are very excited to have Grant on board to work with us as we expand in the South West. We see a lot of opportunities for Fabdec in the region and with Grant’s industry knowledge and network of contacts we are planning for sustainable long-term growth.”

World’s first expandable milk cooling silo joins DARI-KOOL range

The world’s first expandable vertical milk cooling silo has been introduced to Fabdec’s DARI-KOOL range to help meet the needs of growing dairy herds.

HI-KOOL has been specifically designed with an eye to the future, providing dairy farmers with the opportunity to expand the existing tank upwards should production increase. This means, rather than lose out on their initial investment, producers can simply add on more volume up to a total capacity of 40,000litres.

Dairy farmers also have the optional extra of installing an alcove. This means the silo, which is positioned outside, can be accessed from inside the adjacent building.

For more information on the Hi-KOOL milk silo and the rest of the DARI-KOOL range give us a call on 01691 627 200.

Fabdec launches Cluster Purge Plus

At the recent Ploughing Match in Ratheniska, Ireland, Fabdec were pleased to launch Cluster Purge Plus, a further improved version of the cluster disinfection system.

The new program gives the option of having a fresh water rinse after the disinfectant flush. This ensures the liners are clear of any chemical residues, thus prolonging the life of the liners. For swingover parlours there is also a milk sweep function that sends any remaining milk back into the milk line prior to flushing.

Whilst keeping the same quality, we have also managed to simplify the installation set-up so that the milking process remains uninterrupted.

Award for Technology, Enterprise & Innovation

Fabdec were recently invited to take part in the Shropshire Business Awards 2015.
As pioneers in the development of unvented water heating systems and with the release of our new 3S technology we had no hesitation in entering for the award for 'Technology, Enterprise and Innovation'.
Fabdec's ‘Self-Sustaining System’, also known as 3S Technology, includes an internal expansion device that is automatically replenished using a technology known as the 'Venturi effect'. It means there is no need for an unsightly expansion vessel and the internal expansion does not have to manually recharged. This is why we call it the ‘Self-Sustaining System’!
Going back to the awards - unfortunately Fabdec did not win on the night but we were pleased to be within the 4 finalists!
