Indirect storage vessels devised for solar energy

Lochinvar, DHW

Lochinvar has launched a range of high-performance indirect storage vessels for hot water that are specifically designed for commercial and industrial applications. Made from high-grade stainless steel, Squire indirect storage vessels are available with capacities of 300 and 450 l. They come with single or twin coils made from high-grade stainless steel for longevity and high performance.

Squire vessels are designed for projects where renewable energy such as solar thermal is used. Single-coil models store hot water from the solar array and supply this pre-heated water to a direct gas-fired water heater. The twin-coil model uses one coil for solar energy and the second for a traditional boiler.

1.5 in connections for hot and cold water allow for greater draw-off rates for applications such as leisure centres, hotels and hospitals, where peak demand can occur over short periods.

They are designed to work in systems with working pressures up to 10 bar and offer recovery rates from 545 to 1290 l/h through 50 K.
