How to decide which type of manifold you require

This question can be answered in several ways. Underfloor heating requires a much lower water temperature than radiators – – normally half the temperature or less in fact. If the boiler being linked to the heating system cannot provide low temperature water or, if it is heating radiators as well, a manifold with a mixing valve is required. A mixing valve uses the return water in the underfloor heating system and mixes it with the flow to produce the pre-set desired temperature. For smaller projects such as extensions, conservatories and small apartments we provide a compact manifold – same Jupiter quality in, a less sophisticated unit.

A ground source or air source heat pump generates low water temperature which is particularly suited to for underfloor heating. In this case, a standard manifold (a manifold without a mixing valve) can be chosen as the water temperature entering the floor heating is determined by the intelligence within the heat pump.

Our mixing valves are manufactured by the company IVAR who have a long-established history of producing high quality hydronic equipment. The pumps used in conjunction with our mixing valves are manufactured by Wilo and we specifically use the highly efficient Wilo Yonos Para.

RNLI Southend

Jupiter install the underfloor heating in all the new life boat stations around the UK. As the heat source chosen by the RNLI is a heat pump, the water delivered to the underfloor heating is already the correct temperature and does not require mixing.

Private Client, Farnham, Surrey

This project consisted of an existing joisted kitchen and a new beam & block extension. In order to have a new, porcelain tile floor throughout the Screed Replacement Tile was used as a substrate throughout. With only 4 circuits in total a mini mixing valve was installed to control the floor heating.

St. Serf's Church, Edinburgh

As the heat source was serving radiators elsewhere in the complex, mixing valves were required to reduce the water temperature through the underfloor heating in the main nave. The nave alone at St Serfs utilised three, large 12 way manifolds with full combi mix mixing valves in order to provide total control over a large area.

A manifold controls the distribution of the water to the individual rooms. Balancing a manifold normally involves setting the individual flow meters when all the circuits are open. In reality of course, some circuits may be closed during operation thus affecting the flow through the remaining circuits. The Dynamic S1 manifold automatically controls the flow to each circuit which avoids oversupply to individual circuits

All hydronic heating circuits in a system are dependent on each other. Changing the flow in one circuit therefore affects all the other circuits and so it is necessary to balance out the resulting oversupply in the heating circuits.

In contrast to conventional heating manifolds, which use throttle valves and flow indicators to set the required flow rates, Dynamic S1 achieves hydronic balancing automatically with a control cartridge so that the set flow rate is retained, regardless of the operation of the other circuits in the system.

We are proud to be the first UK supplier to offer the Dynamic S1 system as it complements our sophisticated range of heating systems allowing JUPITER to offer the most precise underfloor heating system on the market.
