GF Hycleen

Description

The Hycleen Automation System from GF Piping Systems supports the maintenance of drinking water hygiene in large buildings. It ensures stable water temperatures, flushes the pipes, maintains the circulation valves, and logs all data.

Properties & applications

The Hycleen Automation System is a state-of-the-art circulation control system that is quick and easy to install and commission. It also gives the possibility of automated flushing of the water lines and allows for all system data to be logged, evaluated and displayed on a 10-inch touch screen. All system data can be conveniently monitored remotely; status information and unusual occurrences are reported via push messages.

The system offers various methods of intelligent hydraulic balancing in order to achieve the best possible solution for every drinking water installation: from dynamic hydraulic balancing, which reacts to usage, to programmable static balancing, where each individual valve automatically adjusts to the optimal leakage rate for the system concerned.

If water stagnates over a prolonged period, bacteria can multiply in it until a dangerous concentra- tion is reached. If the entire volume in the drinking water distribution system (cold and hot water) is exchanged within three days, the bacteria are flushed out of the drinking water installation and a high bacteria concentration can be counteracted in a sustainable way. The Hycleen Automation System enables automatic flushing of cold and hot water supply lines based on temperature, time or consumption. Each flushing process is recorded and logged.

Applications

Numerous operators of complex buildings such as hotels, hospitals, schools, apartment blocks or industrial plants use the Hycleen Automation System for optimizing drinking water hygiene. The system can be installed in both new and existing buildings.
