Hydrokapillare System

System Description

The concept of the Hydrokapillare system was developed on the basis of the human blood circulatory system and the structure of plant leaves.

The Hydrokapillare system consists of water capillary mats, a flow distribution system, connection pipes and fittings, measuring and control devices, a heat exchanger (if necessary), a boiler and/or cooling device.

Water circulates in the system under 2-3 bar pressure and the system must only be filled once.

The system can be applied in different functional combinations:

Unlike radiator heating, which is based mainly on heat convection, the Hydrokapillare system operates based on the principle of radiant heat exchange and partly also heat convection.

Thermal radiation - heat exchange takes place from one body to another via infrared or electromagnetic waves.

Electromagnetic waves from the body surface is spreading in all directions. Faced with other bodies, part of the radiation energy is absorbed, turning into a thermal energy again (increasing body temperature).

Thermal convection

Heat transfer by convection occurs only in gases and liquids, moving and mixing of molecules at different temperatures.

Thus, for example, a heating radiator warms up the room's air in contact with it. The warm air is expelled by the cold air in the room, moving it upwards. In this way, the heat in the air is transferred from the radiator to other parts of the room.
