Designed for use with heating systems where solar thermal is used to compliment the main heat source, Telford Copper & Stainless Cylinders has launched a pressurised, sealed, solar thermal domestic hot water package system. It includes a Tempest Solar twin coil hot water storage cylinder and Solar Keymark approved flat panel solar collectors capable of providing up to 70% of a household’s annual domestic hot water requirements. By adopting a package approach, all aspects of the heating system can be designed and sized accurately to meet the requirements of the property whilst operating at optimum efficiencies.
The Duplex stainless steel cylinders are available in capacities of 170-300 litres and feature a purpose-designed solar coil. This is connected to the solar thermal system, and the large surface area allows maximum heat transfer of renewable energy into the stored water. The upper heating coil connects to the boiler as the main heat source, which allows the boiler to heat the top part of the cylinder above the boiler coil. The solar coil works in exactly the same way, but because it is at the bottom of the cylinder, it can heat the whole height of the cylinder.
Telford Copper & Stainless Steel Cylinders also offers system packages for air source heat pumps and wet underfloor heating systems.
