Zilmet app takes the pressure out of vessel calculations

Internationally-renowned expansion vessel manufacturer Zilmet has created a free mobile phone app that allows plumbers and installers to quickly calculate the required size of vessel for their installation.

The app, which is free to download and available for both iPhone and Android, takes the boiler output and system volume and calculates a suitable vessel capacity and pre-charge pressure.

Stuart Gizzi, director at Zilmet UK, said: “Our printed vessel calculators have been hugely popular amongst plumbers and installers, becoming an essential for every toolbox, van and classroom.

“We have given out thousands of calculators over the last six years and through our continued commitment to provide easy-to-use products to our customers, we have chosen to transform our existing calculator into a free app.

“By moving onto people's’ phones, the calculator is easily accessible. With the press of a few buttons, the right size of vessel can easily be determined, with the app identifying the most suitable Zilmet vessel available.”

Zilmet develops game-changing membrane

International expansion vessel manufacturer Zilmet continues to take the lead in innovation, with the launch of its newly-developed, patented ZILAN membranes.

After years of research and development, the manufacturer has unveiled its ultimate ‘second skin’ - a unique membrane that promises to increase the already impressive longevity of its products, with reduced permeability and specialised sizing.

The ZILAN membranes now feature across the entire Zilmet vessel offering, further cementing the manufacturer’s position as the go-to for quality, long-lasting solutions.

Unlike many others in the industry, Zilmet’s membranes veer away from the ‘one size fits all’ approach and are tailored to meet various sizes, further increasing the vessel performance.

Stuart Gizzi, director at Zilmet UK, said: “Zilmet has been supplying vessels internationally for over a quarter of a decade and has earned its status as the leading brand in our field.

“Despite this success and considerable growth in the UK, we always strive to improve and innovate. The new ZILAN membranes are the perfect example of this - we’ve developed a patented formula that gives our product range yet another point of difference.

“There’s nothing else like it on the market - others stretch membranes to fit, which applies pressure which hampers the performance of the product. Combine ZILAN with the fact that every single Zilmet product comes with a five-year guarantee and you’ve got a no-brainer of a range, with quality and cutting-edge technology at the fore.”

Zilmet gets the nod for strong carbon credentials

Leading international expansion vessel manufacturer Zilmet has been awarded CarbonNeutral certification for its UK operation.

Certification is granted to businesses or organisations that have reduced their carbon emissions to net zero in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol.

Zilmet UK strengthened its eco credentials through a range of workplace schemes and measures. Its staff have contributed to the cause by taking up car sharing and four members have even joined the ‘Bike2Work’ scheme in a bid to completely cut their commuting carbon emissions. Zilmet’s external sales force has also been challenged to find the ‘greenest’ routes when visiting clients.

Dedication has been shown at the firm’s Hixon headquarters too, with staff recycling everything but food waste, reducing print output and turning off computer monitors at lunchtime.

Stuart Gizzi, director at Zilmet UK, said: “The smallest changes make the biggest difference so we’re closely monitoring and trying to reduce our carbon footprint in any way we can.

“In the workplace, we’re doing things like monitoring our energy and gas usage, ensuring our boiler is regularly serviced and having motion sensor lights fitted. Our staff have really got behind the efforts and are embracing the challenge of being even greener!”

Zilmet has also pledged a contribution to The Carbon Neutral Company’s Pangelengan Geothermal Project, an initiative that utilises natural geothermal resources to provide reliable and renewable electricity to 13 villages in the Pangelengan district of Indonesia.

Inta and Zilmet offer trainers top quality products

Inta and Zilmet are demonstrating a commitment to the next generation of plumbers and installers by offering to supply colleges and training facilities in the UK with a trio of their best-selling products.

The companies, which share headquarters in Hixon, Staffordshire, are calling on training providers to get in touch in a bid to ensure newcomers to the trade are taught using high-quality and reliable products.

The training packs, which are valued at around £200 each, feature Zilmet’s internationally renowned expansion vessel with a sizing calculator and Inta’s bestselling Intamix and a 15mm pressure reducing valve. Also included are enough copies of its famed ‘Everything you need to know about anti-scald’ booklet for an entire cohort.

Cynthia Fisher, director at Inta, said: “We know the quality of training here in the UK is fantastic, but tightened budgets mean many trainees are learning the tricks of the trade on equipment that simply isn’t held in high esteem within the industry.

“It’s important that the next generation of plumbers and installers are able to recognise quality products, in order to provide the best - and most reliable - service for their customers. Building up a business and loyal customer base is difficult and the use of trustworthy products is essential in delivering a top-notch service.

Stuart Gizzi, director at Zilmet UK, added: “The Zilmet and Inta brands are known for manufacturing products that are not only easy to use, but perform better than any other market equivalent. We’re dedicated to supporting those entering the trade and feel they deserve access to quality, hardworking products from the get-go.”
