Convector

 

a heating unit in central heating systems in which most of the heat is transferred from a heat carrier to the space being heated by convection; it is used for residential, public, and industrial buildings. The most widely used convector is a heating element in a metal housing. Air from the space flows underneath to the heating element and comes into contact with it, whereupon it is heated and discharged through a top opening into the space. The heated—and consequently lighter—air in the space above the heating element creates a draft that increases in proportion to the height h of the volume. A vent is installed above the convector heating element to regulate the amount of air passing through the convector and its heat output. During operation of a convector, dust is periodically removed from the surface of the heating element.

The baseboard convectors were sized using the design heating loads, calculated using Manual J, and an average water temperature of 66[degrees]C (150[degrees]F).
Myson's fan convector technology is the chosen alternative, as the internal high efficiency heat exchanger gives higher outputs in compact sizes, therefore less space is required for the heating emitter.
Secondary hot water pumps move the water to fin-tube or convector radiation.

Diamond commenced his own law suit in Civil Court against the co-op, claiming damages as a result of the negligent installation of the convector.
Whether they are flat-fronted convectors, double-panelled, single-panelled, slatted heated benches, tables or seats, or upright design features, there is a style to suit all occasions and settings, not to mention colour schemes.
While radiators provide a major part of Myson's production activity, the company also makes fan convectors and under-floor heating, and has further factories around the country, including one in Hull.
