20 & 21 May 2014
This new two-day event at Alexandra Palace, London, is aimed to build on all the strengths of the existing PHEX events, but brings both domestic and commercial plumbing, heating and ventilation manufacturers.
Alongside the FREE seminar programme, created in conjunction with Gas Safe Register, DECC, B&ES, RVA, FMA and more, PHEX+ will provide with CPD accredited sessions. These sessions have been specially created by the manufacturers and will count towards any continued training and development needs.
IN ADDITION TO ALL THIS, PHEX+ PROVIDES:
- Access to over 90% of the UK’s boiler manufacturers.
- Discounts and show offers unique to the event.
- Free coaches from participating merchant branches.
- Free parking for over 1,500 vehicles.
The organiser, Hemming, claims that PHEX+ is the only exhibition of its kind in the UK and is completely FREE to enter.
For the launch of PHEX+ at the Alexandra Palace in May 2014, the organiser has teamed up with some of the leading industry manufacturers and suppliers to provide a comprehensive training programme throughout the two days of the exhibition.
It will host a wide variety of product related training sessions, covering everything from commercial boilers, ventilation, system filtration, heat recovery, heat pumps and more.
All sessions will be free to attend and each training module will offer CPD accredited content to go towards your Continuing Professional Development requirements.
CPD AREA ONE – Both Days:
11:15: Grundfos Pumps: Packaged Booster Systems The demand for pressure boosting systems has continued to rise in recent years and so has the engineered sophistication of the pump solutions being supplied to meet the varied requirements for these units. Applications that require these systems include: water supply, irrigation systems, water treatment systems, industrial application and of course a hugely diverse area of commercial applications. In this CPD module we look at the main aspects M&E professionals need to be aware of when considering specifying a booster set.
12.00: Zehnder: Radiant Heating & Cooling Radiant heating and cooling systems can offer benefits for large spaces such as offices, warehouses, schools and hospitals, where energy usage is high. The programme will outline how radiant heat works, comparisons between radiant and convective systems, and how radiant panels are made. The programme will also cover specification requirements, basic system design considerations and an understanding of good and bad practices.
12.45: Sentinel: Water Treatment for Commercial Applications The course is designed to create better awareness of water treatment needs in commercial applications. It will, among other objectives, provide an understanding of how corrosion and scale formation occurs in systems, show failure mechanisms and their consequences, and outline the cost implications of poorly treated systems for specifiers, installers, service engineers and end user clients, as well as covering industry regulations and initiatives.
13.30: Mira Showers: Safe Showering The course will focus on bathroom adaptations with level access trays and advance shower with wireless connection to drainage pumps.
14.15: Greenwood Airvac: Best Practice Ventilation Installation Guidance With Building Regulations now requiring sign off of ventilation systems, focus on installation practise is more important than ever. This session will provide guidance on the key ventilation methods being installed in new and existing homes including specific focus on whole house systems such as MEV and Heat Recovery with new types of ducting systems. Extracts from the BPEC accredited domestic ventilation installer course will also be covered.
15.00: Worcester, Bosch Group: Domestic heating & hot water systems With more options now available to meet the heating and hot water needs of UK homeowners than ever before, this programme will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at the differences between the domestic combi boiler and a more traditional stored hot water system. By closely examining the factors that can affect the choice of heating and hot water system, the seminar aims to equip you with everything you need to know when it comes to recommending and installing the most appropriate technologies for your customer’s property.
CPD AREA TWO – Both Days:
11.15: RWC: Improving Water Efficiency in Public and Commercial Environments This CPD seminar explores the demands of shared bathroom facilities, requirements for water conservation, and how to achieve a sustainable and economical commercial washroom with manually operated timeflow tap and shower controls. It covers the criteria for selecting and specifying timeflow controls for sinks and showers, and includes alternative solutions for specialist areas. Applicable product samples can be used to accompany the presentation.
12.00: Vokera: Commercial Condensing Boiler Technology A CPD presentation on the benefits of a multi-burner condensing cascade system. The presentation covers the different types of cascade installations and the features that make the system efficient such as the modulation ratio across the cascade and how the heat exchangers are controlled. Other issues discussed in the seminar will include installation, servicing and repair, flue solutions and intelligent control options.
12.45: Airflow: Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) in non-residential buildings. This presentation explores why the UK needs to greatly improve its indoor air quality, the benefits to be gained by incorporating MVHR and its principles of operation. The seminar will explain the Building Regulations which drive this requirement, including the Passive House standard and how significant energy saving benefits can be achieved, with over 90% thermal regain possible.
13.30: Stelrad Radiators: Innovative and Eco-friendly Radiator Development Stelrad’s CPD seminar will introduce you to the latest innovations within the steel panel radiator sector. It will provide information on serial feed steel panel radiator technology and design, enabling installers and contractors to confidently specify steel panel radiators to reduce their customers’ fuel bills and carbon footprint while improving comfort levels in new and refurbished properties.
14.15: AKW: Showering for Independent Living AKW’s seminar will focus on how level access showering can be created in the bathroom to enable people with mobility needs to use a shower area safely and freely. The presentation gives details about the benefits of creating a level access with a wetroom former as well as shower trays, examining the key considerations which need to be taken into account when specifying these solutions.
