Vented electric thermal store producing mains pressure hot water

Electric Thermal Store

Replacement for PULSACOIL

Perfect for flats and apartments. The electrically heated, vented thermal store that creates hot water directly from a mains cold water supply. Totally safe, totally silent.

The ETS cylinder manufactured from stainless steel is a self contained Thermal Store that quietly converts cold mains water to hot mains water in an instant when you open a tap.

Only requiring a cold water feed and an electrical supply, the ETS cylinder is ideal for apartments and flats where it is impossible to achieve a decent head of water, rendering traditional gravity hot water systems useless.

Being electrically heated the ETS can utilise the beneficial tariffs of 'off-peak' electricity if available.

Thermal stores are the perfect choice for buildings with multiple occupancy. An unvented hot water cylinder requires a pressure discharge vent pipe to the outside of the building - a thermal store does not. Simply put, because a thermal store operates at atmospheric pressure there's no potential for a dangerous pressure to develop, therefore there's nothing to vent.

With no need for a pressure discharge pipe, the  thermal store can be sited anywhere within the property.

Unlike other Thermal Stores, the ETS is self contained. No need for a separate feed and expansion tank, the ETS contains its own.

No need for complex electronic controls, the ETS is gadget free. No pumps, no circuit boards.

Because it is inherently safe, Thermal storage technology is not governed by G3 Building Regs either. No need for a specialist installer, they are so safe these can be lawfully fitted by any competent person.

Simple to install and easy to maintain.

Advance Aplliance ETS Electric thermal store cylinder

A feature of all thermal stores is a Feed & Expansion (F&E) vessel whose purpose is to keep the store full of water and negate evaporation. Some manufacturers employ a separate plastic tank which must then be plumbed to the thermal store cylinder. The ETS incorporates the F&E vessel as an internal compartment - doing away the need for additional plumbing and the requisite pipe work.

Filling the F&E compartment can be achieved by periodic inspection using the sight glass and topping up manually via a filling loop when necessary, or by a fully automated supply drawn from the adjacent mains cold water supply. The latter requires an overflow to be fitted. If an automatic fill is preferred but an overflow is not possible, an optional factory fitted isolation kit can be added to your purchase that shuts of the supply should the F&E reach an overflow.

Schematic of how an ETS thermal store works

So, how does an ETS thermal store work?

Within the body of the the cylinder is the main storage chamber where a volume of cold water is heated. This water remains in the store (rather like the acid in your car battery) and is charged with thermal energy (heat).

A heat exchanger (the coil) is immersed in the hot water within the store.

As you open a hot tap, cold water passes through a heat exchanger coil en-route to the tap and is rapidly heated by the hot store water. The process has imparted stored heat to the cold mains water which now emerges as hot water.

The temperature of the hot water is regulated by passing it through a thermostatic blending valve which ensures hot water cannot be delivered at a dangerous temperature.

As you demand hot water (running taps or showers) the temperature of the water in the store depletes, at which time it is reheated if the immersion heater controller is set to do so.

Simple and safe! Mains pressure hot water from an open vented store of hot water.

The ETS is fitted with two immersion heaters. A typical installation will have one heater as the off-peak heat source, the other heater being used as a manual boost if extra hot water is required during the day.

Notes:

  1. Suggested models are only a rough guide. Everything depends on hot water usage patterns and expectation of the individual.

  2. An external 'off-peak' controller (programmer) must be used to switch/supply electricity to the immersion heaters.
