This Gledhill Buffer Store Cylinder is a hot water cylinder that is meant to increase the overall volume of the heating distribution system. It reduces the cycling of the heat pump. This vented hot water cylinder has been specifically designed to fulfil your heating requirements and is known for its high efficiency levels and good performance. These buffer vessels are a duplex stainless steel tank that contain are designed to absorb any extra heat generated by the heat pump in low load conditions.
If the building cannot absorb the extra heat generated the return temperature to the heat pump will increase and will potentially cause the heat pump to turn off. If the temperature drops in the water returning to the heating appliance, then it will turn itself back on. If this cycling occurs at a greater frequency than the minimum run time for the appliance, this is classed as short cycling. The aim of a buffer vessel is to remove the possibility of any short cycling of the heating appliance.
These buffer vessels are designed to work at up to 3.5 bar pressure for primary water only. They should not be used for potable domestic hot water as are not approved for this purpose. This hot water cylinder is suitable for use with gas and oil boilers to maximise efficiency. Every model is designed to deliver high performance and transfer the adequate amount of heat to stored water.
