The Adveco GL family of low-cost carbon steel storage tanks offer a selection of off-the-shelf vessels for commercial hot water (DHW) projects requiring direct electric heating, buffer storage, indirect heating or preheat.
“Tough enough to deal with water conditions typically encountered across the UK, the new GL family expands options with a versatile choice of vessels with single and double coil variants, as well as no coil and the option for electric immersion to quickly and cost-effectively replace vessels in ageing commercial hot water systems,” said Bill Sinclair, technical director, Adveco.
Adveco GLE, designed to serve as buffer vessel or electric water heater, is available in a range of sizes from 200 to 5000L to support larger all-electric systems. Compatible with a wide range of direct electric immersion heater options available from Adveco, the GLE supports duty immersions from 3 to 36 kW, as well as secondary supplementary immersions from 3 to 6 kW for additional heating, or as backup to ensure continuity of service from a single unit.
Adveco GLC carbon steel calorifiers with a single fixed indirect heating coil at low level are designed to serve as indirect water heaters or preheat vessels. Available in 200 to 3000 litres capacities, GLC can also accept a 180mm 3-36kW electric immersion.
For organisations looking to introduce heat pumps as part of their sustainability strategy, a combination of the GLC & GLE will provide the basis of a compact air to water heating system. With an air source heat pump connected to the GLC with immersion, the calorifier provides system preheat. The GLE then provides the necessary after heat from a top up immersion able to deliver system workflow above the necessary minimum of 60°C for safe commercial operation.
Adveco GLT carbon steel calorifiers are designed to serve as indirect water heaters. The tanks, also available in 200 to 3000 litres capacities, incorporate two fixed indirect heating coils, one each at low and high level, designed for use with two separate heat sources.
To prevent corrosion the tanks are constructed from a carbon steel shell with a high-quality inorganic enamel lining. They are suitable for use in systems with maximum working pressure up to 10 bar and temperatures up to 85°C and include as standard a magnesium sacrificial anode (pre-fitted in 300-1000L variants), and a temperature gauge (pre-fitted in tanks up to 1000L).
The vessels are protected by a tough PVC jacket enclosing a rigid high-density polyurethane foam or removeable polyester fibre insulation, pre-fitted for tanks up to 1000L.
The Adveco GL range of storage tanks carries both WRAS and Kiwa’s KUKreg4 certification of product compliance with the water supply (water fittings) regulations for England, Scotland, and NI.
