Towel Rail Electrification Kit

Clear

Description

Our towel rail electrification kit enables you to easily convert a regular central heating (or ‘hydronic’) heated towel rail into a fully electric version which will work entirely independently of your central heating system.  You might have an existing towel rail that you wish to move, reuse or more easily use year round without running your central heating system.

The kit includes a PTC electric element, blanking plug to seal the remaining valve connection, and an inhibitor solution to prevent corrosion and reduce noise.  Converting the towel rail is quick and easy, simply follow the instructions on the inhibitor bottle to make up the required solution and fill the rail, insert the element and screw in the blanking plug to the remaining valve connection upright.  

PTC Elements use less energy than conventonal heating elements!

PTC heating elements are the latest and most energy efficient towel rail heating elements on the market today.  Manufactured by Rica, a leading Italian company in the manufacture of heating elements, you can be assured of maximum quality.

PTC technology – how does it work?

Unlike traditional heating elements that use a resistance wire, PTC heating elements are made as ceramic stones.  These ceramic stones are manufactured to heat up a defined temperature and then maintain that temperature by reducing the power.

Initially the element will operate at full power until the rail reaches its’ designed operating temperature of 65°C after which it will reduce the electrical current whilst maintaining the rail temperature. As a result, a separate thermostatic control unit is not required, and the heating element uses significantly less electricity than a conventional heating element.

Benefits of PTC heating elements

  • No thermostat required
  • Maximum temperature cannot be exceeded by PTC elements
  • Any working position: the absence of thermostats permits either horizontal or vertical orientation of the heater during operation.
  • Smaller diameter than in traditional heaters – provides a wider installation capability
  • Very fast warm up phase followed by constant temperature thereafter
  • Lower running costs than conventional resistance wire heaters

Sentinel X100 Towel Rail Inhibitor

Sentinel X100 Towel Rail Inhibitor provides protection for all water-filled towel rails against limescale and corrosion.  Towel rails often develop pin hole leakes caused by corrosion of their innter surfaces.  Sentinel X100 Towel Rail Inhibitor has been specially developed to protect standalone water-filled electric twoel rails or for topping up inhibitor levels on indirect heating systems already treated with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor.

Usage

A 60ml tube of Sentinel X100 Towel Rail Inhibitor is sufficient to treat an electric towel rail of up to 12 lintres capacity or replenish a central heating system already treated with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor when installing a towel rail on your central heating system.

Add the entire tube of Sentinel X100 Towel Rail Inhibitor to the towel rail before filling.  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the assembly and filling of your towel rail.

Technical Information

  • Protects all water-filled towel rails
  • Effectively controls scale and corrosion
  • Helps prevent the formation of hydrogen gas
  • Suitable for all metals including aluminium
  • Works in static environments
  • Free dosing adaptor
  • Can be used as system inhibitor top up
  • Non-toxic and biodegradable
  • Manufactured under a quality system conforming to ISO9001
  • Size: 60ml
