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.
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
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.
