H2X has collaborated with Dutypoint to provide Booster Pump and ScubaTank specifications.

Operating since 1976, Dutypoint has become one of the leading players in fluid technology trusted by clients both in the UK and overseas. Integrity, transparency, accountability and clear communication are crucial to how they do business. They stand by what they say, today and every day.

Booster Pumps

Design with Dutypoint Products

H2X is used by designers to undertake a variety of calculations. One of the most important calculations that are undertaken relates to pressure.

If you do not meet the minimum inlet pressure at a fixture, warnings will appear to make you aware of this and prompt you to add a booster pump to your design.

Design with Dutypoint Products

Now, when users add the booster pump, H2X will calculate the required pump duty:

Flow Rate – calculated by the number of fixtures/nodes connected to the pump

Pressure – calculated by meeting the ‘Minimum Inlet Pressure’ at every fixture/node

Then, based on the configuration that you select (Duty/Standby or Duty/Assist/Standby), H2X will provide the relevant Dutypoint model to suit your project.

As shown in the image below, a ‘Duty/Standby’ pump which requires a flow rate of 2.35 L/s and an extra 1.41 bar of pressure will specify the relevant Dutypoint Model – VG2-5HME06-LSM.

ScubaTANK – The Combined Booster Pump & Tank Solution

Design with Dutypoint Products

ScubaTANK® is a booster pump and tank combined into one to maximise water storage in a small footprint. Not only does this product save space, but it is also very quiet running by virtue of the submersible pumps. Plus the designer can be assured that the solution will comply with the water regulations as the ScubaTANK® range is fully WRAS approved.

This tried and tested all-in-one solution saves installation time on site too, not to mention the many standard customisations designers can choose from to suit specific site requirements. And the good news is you can now specify ScubaTANK® in H2X!

The booster pump is calculated as described in the ‘Booster Pump’ section above.

The storage tank capacity can be manually specified or calculated based on storing X minutes of the peak flow rate.

As shown in the image below, a ‘Duty/Standby’ pump which requires a flow rate of 1.35 L/s and 2.31 bar with 20 minutes of peak flow rate storage will specify Dutypoint ScubaTANK – WX2-5060-1650.

Award-Winning Heating Design

"Using h2x was pivotal, allowing for precise heat loss calculations, pipe sizing and flow rates for each room.

This level of detail ensured that the heating load accurately matched each space's requirements, minimising energy waste and maximising comfort.

The strategic placement of heat pumps and careful sizing of pipework were crucial in maintaining minimal pressure drops over an 18-metre distance."

Greengate, UK

"I would estimate over the length of this project, I have spent 50% less time designing than I would on our previous software.

The ability to output the design straight into Revit assisted clash detection and coordination."

Salon Republic, USA

"The quality of the designs saw significant improvement with the adoption of h2x."

"The software offers precision through detailed result outputs and advanced options for efficient pipe sizing, allowing heating engineers to optimise based on parameters like maximum velocity and pressure drop."
