HBX Control Systems are designed, engineered and manufactured in Canada to accommodate a wide range of hydronic heating and cooling needs commonly found in today’s residential, commercial and industrial design applications. We are an innovative, forward thinking company that can adapt quickly in an ever changing industry.
The complete line of HBX products allows for a range of application types including mixing, staging, solar systems, geothermal systems and snowmelt applications.
HBX has developed a single control unit designed to accommodate a wide range of hydronic heating and cooling need for a multitude of commercial, industrial and residential heating and cooling management applications, making the device effective for both simple and complex multi-use environments. HBX controls are unique in the market with modular design that allows connection into the base unit to allow simple expansion or modification, ease of upgrades, and cost savings. Ease of design, installation, and operation are the cornerstones of the HBX design concept.
HBX CIS (Computer Interface Software) provides remote management and monitoring capabilities for controls such as the CPU-1000, GEO-1000 and SNO-1000. The HydroBloc (HYD-0100) hybrid mixing system allows the mixing of multispeed pumps in multiple unit applications. With the SolarBloc (SOL-0100) automatic differential is achieved using a variable speed pump and flow sensor. Both the HydroBloc and the SolarBloc allows for simple piping and controlling for radiant and solar installations. HBX snowmelt controls utilize unique optical sensor technology unmatched by any other snowmelt control system on the market today.
Designing your hydronic heating system to function with multiple boiler stages by switching on/off multiple smaller capacity boilers will save money, energy, limit potential wear and tear and add a higher degree of comfort to your building.
Large heating loads supplied by one or two very large boilers typically don’t make sense when the heating plants full capacity may only be required for 5-15% of the entire year. A smaller boiler may keep up with the demand 50% of the time in many cases. Staging controls allow you to take full advantage of the benefits derived from a series of smaller boilers/stages cycled on as the heating load dictates.
Overshoot and undershooting of desired room temperature can be reduced, while saving money. Multiple boilers provide an inherent backup in the event of a boiler failure. Quality staging controls also allow for automatic rotation of all boilers with various options to equalize runtime. Central Processing Unit 1000 Staging.
