Summary

Muovitech offers a range of custom-made ground source equipment

Ground Source and Waterwell Drilling  


Family-run geothermal company Muovitech began operating in Finland in 2002. The firm is now established in Sweden, Holland, Finland, Poland and the UK.

MuoviTech UK, which opened its doors on October 2011, operates from a 1.5 acre site in Lancashire. Run by Layla Sutcliffe, who has 12 years’ experience in the plumbing/merchant industry, the company holds vast stocks of borehole collectors, ground-loop, pre-insulated pipe, pipe casing and accessories.

“Here at MuoviTech, we understand that things can change and problems can happen on site. This is why we always strive to have stock on the ground to help speed up any issues that do arise,” says Miss Sutcliffe.  

“Selecting MuoviTech, you get a total supplier of everything outside the house and in the ground.”

High-quality products


MuoviTech develops and manufactures its products internally, and works hard to ensure the highest quality. All MuoviTech products comply with environmental, technical, legislative and industry requirements.

The firm manufactures manifolds and manifold chambers in standard format. These are custom-made to suit customer applications, with regard to dimensions, appearance and number of connections.

MuoviTech borehole collectors and ground-loop are manufactured from PE100+ and offered in two forms: the Standard Flat Collector or Turbo Collector. Both forms are available in PE100 SDR17 and PE100 SDR11. They come in 2x40mm, 2x32mm, 4x40mm and 4x32mm sizes. Standard lengths range from 60-300m. The 40mm-diameter, double-winded collector features a ribbed interior for better heat transfer.

The Turbo Collector is based on the standard collector, but features a ribbed interior. Measurements have shown that it provides much better heat transfer compared with the standard collector.

The Turbo Collector incorporates factory-welded, 520mm weights so that no extra weights are needed for installation. The weight is adjusted to the length of the collector to avoid transport damage and for optimal control during installation. The collector can be delivered in all lengths, according to customer needs.

The U bend is well protected and the collector is pressure tested with air before leaving the factory. Pipes are produced according to INSTA SBC 12201 EN 12201:2003. The collector is approved by SwedCert type approval 0558.

MuoviTech also offers a range of installation products, including the Reel Feeder (110V and 240V, with forward and reverse-action slip wheels, suitable for the 2x40mm collector); and the Collector Winder, which helps prevent damage to the collector when uncoiling or installing.

The company has been working in collaboration with researchers at the University of Borås and aims to launch a new product next spring.
