Grant GES264 sequence controller

Benefits of a sequence controller
The Grant 264 sequence controller is designed to manage from 2 to 4 heat sources. These may include renewable technologies such as air source heat pumps and wood pellet boilers or alternatively oil/gas boilers. The controller is able to cope with a mix of fuels all at the same time. This is achieved by using a common flow sensor and using the heat sources installed to satisfy the demand.

The water temperature may be weather compensated and used with or without hot water priority, depending on the pipework layout, pumps and motorised valve set up. When controlling up to 4 appliances the controller will record the time run for every heat source/boiler and rotate the firing sequence to provide an equal burn time for all units. This will ensure that all appliances share the load throughout the year. When firing takes place each unit will only run when required, depending on the load placed on the system. This ensures maximum efficiency and prevents unnecessary firing and wasted energy.

Depending on the system design and layout it is possible to include pump overrun. Primary and hot water pumps can also be controlled by the controller. When used in conjunction with a buffer/thermal store the weather compensation facility will be disabled as the store would be kept at a constant temperature. The control recognises this as a set point temperature and is preset at commissioning along with a check of all other parameters.

Energy Management Controls Case Studies

Out with the old and in with a new Grant Vortex

A three storey property in Argyll has recently upgraded its heating system with a Grant Vortex oil-fired boiler which is working alongside a Grant energy management control system, providing warmth throughout the building. Vortex oil-fired boilers are renowned for their efficiency, but the effect of energy management controls can sometimesRead More

Dual fuel is twice as good

A large residence in Norfolk converts from a standard oil fired system to a renewable biomass boiler and condensing oil boiler combination, reaping the benefits of both high product efficiency and low running costs. This beautiful 19th century, six bedroomed residence on the Norfolk Broads has undergone a complete heatingRead More
