 Universal Multi Fuel Thermal Store Systems
 Multi Fuel Source Heat Bank  

The Universal Thermal Store has been designed to link a number of heat sources including gas and oil boilers, solid fuel appliances, and solar as well as electric and other inputs.

Hot water is safely delivered at mains pressure through an integral coil for fast bath filling and power showering without a pump.  In summer the solar coil, if utilised, will provide most of your hot water needs.

Central heating is taken from the store which acts as a buffer for fast radiator or under floor heat up.  The energy can be provided from any source, and links wood burning stoves with gas or oil boilers into a fully integrated hot water and sealed central heating package.

The universal is available as a sealed system and comes with relief valve, thermal safety valve and tun dish fitted in addition to the hot water pack (as shown here).

The store is stainless steel and guaranteed for 10 years.



 Pre-Wired & Pre-Plumbed


The Universal Thermal Store is the best choice for many as it takes the worry out of installation. It offers a fully integrated store with all relevant control and safety features. It has three pumps fitted - a boiler pump and a heating pump and a re-circulator for the solid fuel device to aid heat up and stratification.

Use oil, gas or LPG boilers with a solid fuel or biomass appliance to maximise effiencies. A solar coil is fitted in all stores to make them future-proof.

A 3amp supply from a fused spur is recommended, and you will need to wire a programmer/room thermostat to the fitted junction box. In addition a pipe thermostat is supplied loose (but electrically connected) to mount about a metre away from the solid fuel appliance on the flow pipe.

Wiring instructions come with the unit, although all the wiring except above is complete and tested prior to shipping.

Just connect the boiler flow and return, the solid fuel flow and return and the heating flow and return. Pumps are fitted and pre wired. The solid fuel circuit contains an injector tee and re-circulating pump to ensure a minimum return temperature to the solid fuel appliance to prevent condensation and de-stratifying the store. The circuit is pumped to improve efficiency. It can go on the same level as the solid fuel appliance or above it.

The unit meets the requirements of G3, and has three levels of thermal protection.
