# 3 HOW IS IT MADE? – RADIATOR

It all starts with small aluminium bars called sows. To manufacture our aluminium radiators, we use high-quality raw material with increased requirements for a group of elements of chemical composition according to the Armatura standard based on the PN-EN 1676 standard. We test this composition for each smelting process using a Spectromax type spectrometer and check the crystallographic structure using a microscope.

Then the aluminium sows are placed in a melting furnace, where they are melted at a temperature of about 850°C. After that, the material is transported to the heating furnaces installed at the casting machines. Once the process is over, the casts are strictly controlled, both visually and with the use of an X-ray machine. Later, after machining, which includes a series of operations connected with precise grinding of the surface, welding the plug, threading, and bolting sets together, we check the tightness of our radiators.

The next step of the manufacturing process is connected with protecting the radiators against corrosion during the fluorozirconic and anaphoretic treatment. Thanks to anaphoretic varnishing, we obtain a durable coating highly resistant to corrosion. The last stage involves covering the radiators with an electrostatic powder coating and placing them in furnaces where the varnish polymerises (at a temperature of around 200°C).

After that, the radiators are packed and transported to our clients.

Get to know the 4 key arguments that will convince you to choose the aluminium radiator manufactured in our factory in Nisko.

THERMAL EFFICIENCY

The thermal output of the radiators for an average temperature of 50°C is even over 90% higher than in the case of popular steel panel radiators having the same weight.

Fast heating-up: thanks to low unit weight and excellent thermal conductivity of aluminium.

The radiators have a special shape of air outlets, thanks to which heated air is directed directly to the centre of the room and not upwards, which prevents it from bouncing off the windowsill.

LOWER WATER CONSUMPTION – LOWER COSTS

The radiators ensure reduction in the amount of the water consumed thanks to narrow channels. The aluminium radiator requires only 3 litres of water, a steel model of the same thermal output ‒ about 7 litres, while a cast-iron radiator ‒ 15 litres.

EASY ASSEMBLY AND CONFIGURATION

The KFA Armatura aluminium radiators are available as segmental, which means it is possible to purchase different configurations ‒ from a single panel to a 10-element set.

The radiators are available with a side (the possibility of mounting supply components on the right or left side of the radiator) or bottom connection with a standard spacing of 50 mm, which means they can be used in installations where steel radiators were previously applied.

Thanks to the application of protective anti-corrosion layers already at the production stage, the KFA Armatura aluminium radiators can be connected to any type of installation, including the copper one.
