Instantaneous hot water can integrate with solar

MHS Boilers, instantaneous, solar thermal, DHW

MHS Boilers’ Instant Hot Water Station delivers instantaneous hot water using primary energy from a buffer vessel as the heat source. There are three units offering flows of 32, 38 and 47 l/m of DHW with a primary supply temperature of 55°C.

The concept is that heat energy is stored in a primary buffer and heat transfer occurs only on demand. The water content of the secondary element of an installation, and so the volume in which bacteria may breed, is reduced.

The inclined mounting position of the water-to-water heat exchanger ensures rapid cooling after operation, reducing the tendency for deposition of calcium in the heat exchanger.

The wide operational ∆T provides for very cool water to be returned to the base of the primary vessel, which is suited to the inclusion of a solar-thermal input.

These units are supplied with all necessary isolation valves and wall fixings. They are prewired, including cables for the buffer-vessel sensor. A range of secondary return-circulation pump kits, designed to be housed in the unit, is available.
