Our large substations are suitable for almost any domestic hot water and heating or cooling systems and provide a very high degree of comfort and operational performance. The systems are customizable to suit your specific requirements. And the fact that a wide range of recommended components are used gives you several advantages.
Selecting the right district heating substation makes commercial sense
No matter what kind of district heating or cooling substation you need, Danfoss will find a match in our comprehensive range of substations and heat transfer solutions.
Each building has its specific heat demands, every district heating company has its technical connection requirements and each resident have individual heating habits. These criteria influence on the selection of stations for heat distribution in buildings and villages as well as in small and large district heating networks.
The size of a station is determined by the heat demand of the apartment or the building which needs to be heated. Temperature and pressure of the primary power supply determine whether a station is operated directly or indirectly.
In addition, many district heating networks specify special technical connection conditions, which require special control components. And finally, the number and type of heating circuits as well as the form and function of the domestic hot water will influence the needed equipment.
Danfoss offers a complete program of substations and flat stations for ranges starting from 15 kW up to more than 4 MW, for direct or indirect operating mode with one or more heating circuits and primary or secondary side domestic hot water heating as flow, storage tank or anti-legionella system.
The stations can either be pre-defined or pre-ordered custom build solutions. Danfoss has a significant project track record in handling large and small heating and district heating projects, so contact us, and our highly qualified and experienced team will help you to find and dimension the right stations for your requirements.
Features and benefits
Comprehensive range of substations from a single supplier
Integrated components ensure safe operation, increases durability and minimize whole life costs
Benefit from optimized heat transfer and system control performance
Direct heating systems
Heating systems with directly connected substations are used for decentralized domestic hot water (DHW) production and distribution with a central heat source.
Indirect heating systems
Heating systems with indirectly connected substations are used in networks with low-to-medium supply temperature and buildings with small-to-medium capacity requirements.
Modular or site specific indirect systems
Modular or site-specific indirect substations are suitable for all networks and buildings with medium-to-high capacity requirements.

For substation types DSE, DSS and DSM, please contact the local Danfoss sales office to receive more information.
It depends on capacity and size/weight. Wall-hanging substations are limited by dimensions and size. We recommend to study the DSA substation types to learn more about our standard solutions.
Yes, it is possible, but not the recommended solution.
E.g. pipe insulation with PU-soft foam, DH boxes from PU-hard foam.
For standard DSA stations there will be insulation cover available in EPP.
Common products are from GRUNDFOS, WILO & KOLMEKS. Other suppliers are possible in special cases. For more information, please contact the local Danfoss sales office.
