Bowman announce new Titanium tubestacks across its complete
swimming pool heat exchanger range, plus new Corrosion Resistant End Covers for
its larger units (see below), giving pool owners the benefits of even greater corrosion
Titanium tubestacks across complete heat exchanger range
Heat exchangers can often be an overlooked part of a
swimming pool installation - but their function and performance is as important
as any other element of the complex. Located within a pool’s pipe work system,
heat exchangers are often hidden away out of sight (and out of mind) – which is
precisely why Bowman introduced the option of Titanium tubestacks for their smaller heat exchangers some time
The 'fit and forget' nature of the Titanium units is ideal
for swimming pool installations. Plus, with the cost of a typical heat
exchanger being just a fraction of the overall pool outlay, it makes economic
sense to fit a premium quality product that will last for years, without
requiring maintenance other than routine inspection.
The smaller sized Titanium tube stacks have been such a
success with pool designers and operators that Bowman is now offering them
across its complete range of swimming pool heat exchangers.
So what is the secret of Titanium's success? Longevity for starters.
Each Bowman Titanium tubestack comes with a full 10 year guarantee (as opposed
to 1 year for cupro-nickel or stainless steel). The units will literally last
for decades and once fitted, they can be forgotten. What’s more, Titanium can
be used with any type of pool and is impervious to corrosion attack from
There is another, little known bonus of Titanium tube
stacks. Because they allow a higher velocity through the tubes, they provide
better heat transfer than other materials and are therefore more efficient.
This translates into better value for money as, in some cases, a smaller
Titanium heat exchanger can be used than would be needed with units made from
Bowman offer a range of heat exchangers suitable for every
size of pool, from domestic leisure pools right up to Olympic sized pools. Now,
pool owners who require Bowman's larger sized heat exchangers, can also benefit
from the enhanced performance and longevity of Titanium tube stacks.
resistant end covers from Bowman
Bowman has also announced an important new development that
brings new levels of corrosion protection to its larger swimming pool heat exchanger range,
whilst significantly reducing the risk of galvanic reaction.
Traditionally, gunmetal has been the material of choice for
the end covers of Bowman's larger heat exchanger range, but in certain
applications, galvanic reaction created by pool water flowing over dissimilar
metals, has created premature erosion in cupro-nickel and stainless steel tubestacks.
To address this issue, Bowman has developed 'C' Coat end
covers, which are both completely impervious to attack from aggressive
chemicals or seawater and also eliminate completely the potential for galvanic
reaction between the tube stack and end covers.
Bowman will be presenting this
revolutionary new product on stand number C37 at SPATEX 2015 and will be
immediately changing from gunmetal to new 'C' Coat end covers on all their
larger swimming pool heat exchanger units.
