Oxyvent Can Fix Radiator Systems Where Everything Else Has Failed
Convert your radiators to the new Delta T just by simply adding the Oxyvent Tank. That’s how easy it is to enjoy the benefits of high thermal comfort and lower fuel bills.
What can the Oxyvent Tank do for you?
You will feel more comfortable in your home with more powerful radiant heat
Save 30% on your fuel bills
No more bleeding of radiators
You will not have to balance your radiators as the Oxyvent System is self-balancing
Abundance of domestic hot water as the cylinder will heat uniformly from top to bottom.
The boiler will operate in condensing mode 100% of its operating time as the boiler temperature is reduced to 60°C.
As the temperature at ground level is higher Thermostatic radiator valves will be more active giving better control over your room temperature.
Air is formed in the boiler as part of the natural process of heating water. These micro air bubbles travel out along the pipe work and accumulate at a high point in the pipe work or in a radiator. This is why some systems need frequent venting / bleeding of radiators. It is usually the same radiators that the air accumulates in.
Ever wondered why some radiators never heat up even though they are air free and full of water. The chances of an air lock is most likely the problem. Air trapped in the pipework reduce the flow of water traveling to the radiators. This is a very common problem in the UK where millions of homes have inverted systems.
Air locks in heating systems obviously reduce the heat output into the room and the fuel wastage can be enormous.
If you have radiators not heating, air locks and bleeding radiators regularly then you need an Oxyvent Tank.

What is balancing? Balancing is taking water from a radiator that is working perfectly well and giving it to a radiator that will not heat up.
Balancing is done by closing down the lock shield valve with a pliers to a minimum opening position. Obviously the flow of water is greatly reduced and the surface of the radiator will cool significantly, especially at the bottom centre lower section. Test show that a balanced radiators power output is halved every 2 minutes then increase and is halved again. This fluctuation in temperature gives poor thermal comfort to the occupants and waste fuel.
• Balancing increases thermal shock
• Increases noises
• Increases detla T
If you have to balance some radiators to get other radiators to heat then you need an Oxyvent Tank. The Oxyvent system needs no balancing every valve is left fully open.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves
The Oxyvent Tank is a must to get TRV’s to operate correctly. Without Oxyvent most TRV’s do not switch off keeping the heating on constantly as the heat at floor level does not increase due to cold air currents of convection heat. With Oxyvent there are higher temperatures at floor level which allows the TRV’S to switch off the radiator when the required room temperature is achieved, saving fuel.
A radiator is constantly pulsating without Oxyvent, whereas with Oxyvent the radiator is virtually static and produce more intense radiant heat from floor to ceiling and this is why the TRV’s will only operate efficiently with Oxyvent.
It is amazing that most people do not understand the functions of thermostatic radiator valves.
The following are just some perceptions by householders of the purpose of Thermostatic Radiator Valves:
• They increase the temperature of the room!
• I set mine up to maximum and never move them!
• I do not know what they do as they never seem to work!
A lot of people think that if they turn them down to the economical setting that they reduce the flow of water and reduce the heat output into the room.
There is definitely a lot of confusion on how thermostatic radiator valves can benefit the householder.
All Thermostatic radiator valves have markings usually numbers on them. It is up to the householder to adjust these in order to obtain a suitable setting that will give the required temperature for each individual room.
Thermostatic radiator valves work by sensing the temperature of the air surround the radiators valve. When the air temperature reaches the valve setting the valve will automatically close and stop the flow of water to the radiator. When the room temperature cools the valve will automatically open to heat the room again. So basically Thermostatic radiator valves keep the room at a set temperature.
Thermostatic radiator valves are a fantastic invention and work very well and can save the householder a lot of money if the temperature at ground level is warm enough.
If your thermostatic radiator valves do not work efficiently in all your rooms, then you need an Oxyvent system.
The most common setting for room stats is 21°C. this setting is needed to bring the room to a near comfortable temperature.
With the Oxyvent Tank installed the room stats can be reduced down to 19°C without losing your comfort. Experts have said that by reducing the room temperature stat by 1°C you can save 10% in fuel.
If you reduce your room stat to 19°C and feel uncomfortable then you need an Oxyvent Tank to increase Thermal Comfort.
