» LPG mCHP Technology
Revolutionary mCHP technology means the LPG Flow boiler will transform how you power a home in the countryside.
One single domestic appliance will be able to simultaneously generate heat and electricity as well as cutting annual household carbon emissions.
Calor LPG is the fuel of choice for non-mains gas areas, with the lowest carbon emissions of any fossil fuel available*.
» Introducing The Flow® Boiler
The Flow boiler is a condensing boiler that produces some of your electrical power whilst heating your home and providing hot water.
This type of product is often referred to as a micro Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) boiler.
The Flow mCHP boiler is a heat led domestic heating appliance designed to be installed into a conventional heating system comprising of a hot water storage cylinder.
The appliance is constructed according to a modular design, with the mCHP power module being mounted separately within the appliance casing for both ease of installation and service.
The appliance has a single gas fired burner, providing heat, preferentially to drive the organic Rankine cycle circuit (power module) which generates the heat and power
» The Benefits
- The Flow mCHP will save you money through reducing your electricity bills, at the same time reducing your carbon emissions so being good to the environment.
- The Flow is a replacement boiler that heats your home and produces hot water whilst generating electricity.
- The Flow is installed in a similar manner to existing conventional boilers.
- Electricity is generated whilst the boiler is on and can be used in the home, avoiding the need to purchase power from the mains, making you less reliant on your electricity supplier. Excess electricity can be exported to the grid.
» How does it work?
Genlec’s Flow product uses LPG the same way as conventional boilers. It converts some of the heat from combustion into electricity by an organic Rankine cycle.
This is a module similar to a refrigerator which recirculates a fluid. The fluid is heated and evaporated before passing through a turbine-like device attached to a generator.
It is this which produces the electricity. The fluid then passes into a heat exchanger where it condenses, passing its heat into your radiator circuit or through the coil in your hot water cylinder to store hot water.
The Flow will be available in 2014.
