Gledhill TORRENT Stainless OV SOL thermal store

Fully Open vented stainless steel thermal store with solar input

GLEDHILL PRODUCTS > TORRENT Stainless Thermal Stores > TORRENT Stainless OV SOL

Torrent Stainless OV SOL

With all the benefits of the TORRENT Stainless OV, the SOL model incorporates a high-efficiency solar coil to facilitate the direct connection of a 'wet' solar system.

With this additional capability the TORRENT Stainless OV SOL can enjoy the benefit of solar energy to supplement heat output requirements for mains pressure hot water and central heating.

With each of the energy inputs contributing to the demands of the whole the thermal store can offer more economical use of fuels and therefore running costs.

A typical configuration might be set to prioritise the use of natural solar energy or solid fuel inputs when available, only energising a gas or oil boiler should the need arise.

As with the standard OV model, a boiler capable of running 'open vented' requires no primary heat exchanger in the cylinder. This means that boiler heated water can be introduced directly into the store improving operational efficiency.

Available sizes: 150 | 180 | 210 | 250 | 350 LITRES

Hot water and heating from a thermal store

The Torrent Stainless OV SOL provides high-performance mains pressure hot water via the highly efficient plate heat exchanger.

The central heating circuit can be supplied directly from an open vented boiler although an auxiliary heating circuit can be connected from the store in which case both the solar and solid fuel energy will also provide an input to the auxiliary heating circuit.

Electric back-up for your thermal store

An immersion element is provided, and it is normally envisaged that this will be used as an emergency electric back-up for hot water and to provide emergency energy to the auxiliary heating circuit. However, if a low carbon or renewable electricity source is available then this could be connected to the immersion element to provide heat input to the thermal store, decreasing the use of the fossil fuel boiler and hence reducing running costs.
