Astore UK provides a green energy solution for Ecoliving

Thermoplastic pipework and fittings manufacturer Astore has provided a range of compression fittings to alternative energy supplier Ecoliving Ltd.

Ecoliving Ltd is a specialist distributor of renewable energy heating systems to installers, developers and households throughout the UK. Astore compression fittings, in sizes up to 63mm, are being used to connect the pipework and create manifolds for use with ground source heat pumps.

To operate the ground source heat pumps, a specialist pipe is sunk into a borehole or buried underground and an environmentally friendly non-freezing solution is circulated through the system, collecting the heat stored in the soil and transporting it to the heat pump. The pump then delivers heat to a water based heating system which operates under floor heating, radiators and domestic hot water services.

It was highly important that the Astore compression fittings were able to work with and complement the specialist pipework used within this process as Lesley Moir, marketing manager at Ecoliving Ltd explained: “We specified the Astore compression fittings for use within the renewable energy process due to their ability to work highly efficiently with other elements of the system.

The Astore compression fittings are utilised within the Ecoliving Ltd systems throughout the UK.

Astore compression fittings are designed for water transportation systems and can be used within field irrigation and other water distribution applications. Astore offers a wide range of thermoplastic ABS and PVC-U pipework, fittings and valves.
