The solution saves money for both Heatsave and the users
”Unlike the drip trays we used before – made of metal, which absorbs the heat – the EPP material is insulating so well that it does not absorb the heat. This makes it possible for the condensed water to drain away before it freezes to ice.”

Passion for development
Heatsave is a supplier and manufacturer of quality heat pumps. With over 30 years of experience and a passion for being at the forefront and developing their systems, they create sustainable solutions for heating everything from houses to large-scale industry and production halls.
With this passion in mind, Heatsave joined BEWI to develop a more sustainable solution for a drip tray.
Every heat pump releases condensed water, and the traditional way of dealing with that is to use a metal tray and a heater to prevent the water from freezing during the winter.
BEWIs designer came up with a moulded tray in EPP that, with its insulating properties, makes it possible for the condensed water to drain before it freezes. With the shift from the metal tray to EPP, Heatsave reduced the manufacturing cost of the new product by up to 5 times.
It also made installing the pump easier and reduced electricity use by eliminating the need for a heater.
The solution saves money for both Heatsave and the users but also benefits the environment. EPP is 100% recyclable and can, by the end of a product’s lifecycle, be used to produce new innovative and sustainable solutions. That’s value creation.
