Clade breaks new ground with HT heat pump

UK: Clade Engineering Systems has introduced the Birch R290 HT heat pump, described as a groundbreaking solution for high temperature heating needs. 

Engineered as a direct replacement for traditional boilers, the Birch HT delivers up to 80°C flow temperature, with 10-12°C differential, and 70°C return while achieving 100% heat decarbonisation without requiring modifications to existing building infrastructure. 

Available in 50kW and 70kW models, this R290 heat pump includes low noise options (68.7dBA and 73.7dBA), wall-mounting capability, leak detection and advanced smart remote monitoring. 

The Birch HT is said to be ideal for seamless decarbonisation and integration into bi-valent systems, ensuring unmatched performance and efficiency.
