Worcester CondenseSure Condensate Siphon 7716192746
Worcester CondenseSure Syphon
In response to the record low temperatures experienced during the Winter of 2010-11 in the UK, the Worcester CondenseSure is a device which aids in preventing external condensate pipes from freezing up, even in the harshest of winter weather found in parts of the UK.
CondenseSure works by discharing condensate buildup in the CondenseSure Syphon in 500ml quantities. A more indepth explanation into the magic behind this device can be found in the CondenseSure Brochure.
The CondenseSure device has received intensive laboratory testing by Worcester, which proved that an uninsulated 32mm diameter condensate discharge pipe would not freeze, even when subjected to -15c temperatures for over 48 hours.
The Worcester CondenseSure is compatible with any condensing boiler, which means that providing you have a recent model of boiler then the device will fit and give you all the benefits during long cold winters.
Within most condensing boilers there is an internal siphon which holds around 100ml of condensate before being released down the condensate discharge pipe. A typical A-rated condensing boiler will generate up to 2 litres of condensate an hour (dependent on output and temperature) and this will result in the in-built siphon discharging approximately every 3 minutes. With this frequency of discharge it is unlikely that the condensate pipework is ever empty of condensate, consequently increasing the potential for freezing of the pipework in prolonged sub-zero temperatures.
