Spirotech helping Warm Front fight fuel poverty

25th Sep 2012

The Government’s Warm Front scheme has a new weapon to aid its ongoing fight against fuel poverty and it’s called the Spiro Trap MB3.

One of the new generations of dirt separators, if you’re looking for a universal unit which is capable of delivering an efficient and simple yet effective way of removing debris, dirt and sludge from central heating systems than the Spiro Trap MB3 is the ideal product for the job.

This new bit of kit from the Dutch company is designed to remove build up which will help reduce energy consumption and lower heating costs by maintaining a heating system that is energy efficient and effective. Founded in 1985, Spirotech produces and developed products for air and dirt separation and heat transfer. The firm was approved by the Department of Energy and Climate Change and added to the Warm Front scheme in 2007.

Even the most modern condensing boilers with the highest specifications are only as efficient as the quality of the water that flows through them, which is why removing air and dirt from the system is pivotal to the system’s efficiency.

“All too often breakdowns are caused by air and direct getting in to the flow, yet this can actually be avoided if the right precautionary measures are taken in advances,” says marketing and communications director for Spirotech UK, Noel Kelly.

“Spirotech is delighted to introduce its new high performance dirt separator to the Warm Front initiative. The work the scheme does is admirable and we continue to be very proud to be aligned with it,” he added.

Spirotech saw great successor with its Spirotrap MB2 but the MB3 is the result of a company not content with resting on its laurels. Key advantages and benefits include:

  • It’s been proven to improve energy efficiency
  • Helps to reduce running costs
  • Easy to install
  • Helps to eliminate problems caused by circulating dirt
  • Works with all types of boilers, especially high efficiency models
  • Guaranteed for the life of your boiler up to a maximum of 20 years
  • Removes magnetic and non-magnetic dirt from the system

To date it’s estimated that more than 6 million homes in the UK are in fuel poverty. The Government’s Warm Front Scheme, which is currently still open for business, was established to help low income households struggling with their heating bills.

Eric Coates from Carillion Energy Services, who administer the scheme, said Spirotech’s products were just what the Warm Front Scheme called for: “Spirotech’s products go a long way towards combating fuel poverty, with a truly reliable product offering.”
