CDCE - Clina Capillary Tubes

CDCE is working with Clina GmBH to introduce capillary tube heating and cooling to UK domestic, commercial and public sector buildings. The system allows space and carbon saving at a competitive price. 

Overview

Capillary tube technology takes a completely new approach and follows nature’s example. Water-carrying capillary tube mats are installed directly below the surface of floors, walls and ceilings, allowing smooth temperature control. The transfer of energy between users and the activated surfaces is achieved predominantly using radiation – matching the natural conditions for regulation of the heat balance of all living organisms. This is why people in rooms cooled or heated with Clina capillary tube systems feel demonstrably more comfortable, increasing productivity while reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.

Application

Plastic capillary tube mats are used mainly in radiation systems like cooling & heating ceilings in property construction, convective cooling shafts and cooler columns, as flooring and wall systems for heating and cooling in living houses(primarily single-family homes) as well as ground collectors in conjunction with heat pumps.

The Clina capillary tube system is the solution of choice everywhere where the issue is about providing the user with an optimal, i.e. agreeable, room climate that is beneficial to health. Architectonic issues (space requirement, flexibility, non-visible technology) as well as cost issues also frequently play a decisive role. 

The thermodynamic properties are unique and allow Clina capillary tube mats to make a significant contribution to the reduction of operating costs whilst reducing the burden on the environment at the same time. Until now, these benefits have been leveraged for large commercial office and bank buildings in particular. Clina capillary tube mats have been used successfully for many years in both new buildings as well as for renovation and modernisation projects.
