Heat Pump Cylinders
Advance has been involved in the design and manufacture of these special cylinders for many years and we have worked closely with leading heat pump manufacturers to make sure the product works well with that technology. It isn't just a case of bigger coils, but coil capacities and positions in cylinders are critical, as is resistance. We have earned a good name and solid reputation for supplying high end heat pump cylinders to many prestige jobs as well as for many contracts such as social housing schemes.
The heat pump coils have large surface areas to get the best heat transfer, also they are designed for low resistance and the coils are positioned within the cylinder to lower return temperatures.
Domestic sizes have 60mm of injected polyurethane foam for low heat loss. The cylinders are guaranteed for 25 years, are WRAS approved and meet all relevant Building Regulations.
Two types of heat pump cylinders are available. The single coil heat pump range of cylinders (HP and HPL) is designed to work with a wide range of air source and ground source heat pumps utilising low output and converting it into hot water for domestic needs.
Advance twin coil stainless steel heat pump cylinders (HPS and HPSL) incorporate special coils designed to work with a wide range of heat pumps and solar thermal installations.
Solar cylinders get the best of both worlds - during the solar season (usually April until September) most of the Domestic Hot Water production will be generated by the solar panels.
All cylinders are fitted with a 3kW immersion heater for thermal disinfection and back up. They can be connected to a PV (electric) solar installation.
In addition there is a range of cylinders with Low Resistant Coils (HPL and HPSL) for large fast flow heat pumps.
Coil outputs are measured at typical heat pump flow rates and temperatures.
