The Flettner TCX-GE Ventilator is a cost effective wind powered ventilation product that can be used on buildings as part of a radon gas or other harmful gas mitigation strategy.
Incorporating the integral air concentrator and an ultra-efficient centrifugal fan from the patented Flettner TCX-2 the Flettner TCX-GE not only leads the way in operational efficiency but it is also much simpler to fit than other more expensive ventilators. Designed to slot into a 100mm/4 inch pipe, with the addition of some sealant this ventilator can be fitted in less than a minute! The Flettner TCX-GE ventilator will work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, subject to a light breeze and with no running costs.
Often used to reduce Radon gas, or for soil pipes.
As you would expect from Flettner, their fastidious approach to quality is evident throughout. â€“ from the grades and composition of the plastics used through to the choice of only the highest grades of machined stainless steel in the shaft and bearings.
Flettner’s warranty will give you full confidence and peace of mind (register the warranty with Flettner after purchase).
Radon and Other Gas Extraction
Flettner Ventilators can be used to extract waste gases from housing stock built on brownfield sites and also as part of a radon mitigation strategy in affected areas.
Radon is a naturally occurring colourless, odourless radioactive gas. It results from the radioactive decay of the small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in all rocks and soils. In certain parts of the world concentrations of Radon are considerably higher than what is currently thought to be acceptable.
Air pressure inside buildings is usually lower than pressure in the soil around a building’s foundations. Because of this difference in pressure, some buildings can act like a vacuum, drawing radon in through foundation cracks and other openings.
In such circumstances, it is therefore prudent to fit radon mitigation solutions to houses and other buildings that exhibit these issues. When selecting the right solution in the first instance you should consult a qualified Radon mitigation contractor to advise you on the options for your property.
One of the solutions available involves improving ventilation by utilising a forced air extraction method in order to reduce excessive radon levels. Flettner Ventilator has developed the Flettner TCX-GE for this purpose. The Flettner TCX-GE combines the extraction capabilities of the definitive wind powered ventilator on the market with an easy to fit coupling designed to fit onto a 110mm pipe.
