Thermal Store Cylinders

Thermal store Cylinders take a completely different approach to delivering hot water compared with a conventional system or unvented cylinder.

Thermal stores work by reversing the function of the Primary (Heating) and Secondary (Domestic) water. The Primary water is stored in the cylinder and heated by either a boiler (Indirect) or immersion heaters (Direct). When heated by a boiler, the water can also be pumped around either a wet central heating system or an under-floor heating system.

The Secondary water comes directly from the mains and passes through a specially designed finned heat exchanger coil which draws heat from the water in the primary store. This water then passes through a thermostatic mixing valve which blends the water to the correct temperature before it reaches the taps.

The benefits of a thermal store

Provides instant mains pressure hot water, High flow rates of up to 25L per minute
Energy efficient reducing running costs
Ideal for use with Solid Fuel
Able to run central heating from the thermal store
Extremely reliable as there are fewer mechanical components
Easy to install, no G3 qualification requirement, no discharge pipework
No annual maintenance
Fresh mains water at hot and cold taps
No legionella risk as no stored water is fed to taps

 

Where to use a thermal store

Suitable for use with multiple fuel sources, ideal for incorporating a solid fuel energy source such as an AGA or wood-burning stove , in rural locations and in high rise developments where mains pressure is required. Thermal stores have no discharge requirement like unvented cylinders.
