Open vented stainless steel thermal store with sealed primary and solar inputs

Torrent Stainless SP SOL

To complete this new family of Torrent Stainless thermal stores is the SP SOL model. (Sealed Primary)

There can be circumstances when the primary circuit from the boiler needs to be pressurised. Be this because of local site conditions, or simply because you happen to have a boiler that requires you to heat the cylinder via a heat exchanger, the SP model is the one to choose.

The SP Model ('sealed primary') sees the introduction of a boiler heat exchanger. This enables you to mix open vented heat sources such as a wood burner with a pressurised primary of say a System Boiler. This useful addition simply adds another dimension to the wonderful capabilities of the TORRENT Stainless family of thermal stores.

Mains pressure hot water derived from an open vented cylinder. Instant response when configured to provide central heating, and the combined output from a number of mixed heat sources make the use of a thermal store the obvious choice. Browse through our range of Gledhill TORRENT Stainless thermal stores t see which one best suits you.

You are most welcome to call and discuss your requirement. Just pick up the phone.

Hot water and heating from your TORRENT Stainless SP SOL

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

The central heating circuit is normally supplied directly from the boiler although an auxiliary heating circuit can be connected from the store in which case the solid fuel source will provide energy to the auxiliary heating circuit. Obviously, the energy output that can be provided by the auxiliary heating circuit will be limited to the energy input from the solid fuel appliance.

This sealed primary (SP) model permits the use of a smaller feed and expansion tank because the main central heating circuit does not need to be catered for. This can make positioning the F&E tank more straightforward.

TORRENT Stainless SP SOL Electric back-up

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.
