Mains pressure hot water from an open
vented thermal store
highly desirable, mains pressure hot water has historically brought with it the dangers associated
with unvented (pressurised) cylinders - EXPLOSION! Until the advent of the
Boilermate that is!
With the simple yet clever addition of a
mains-pressure heat exchanger a normal gravity pressure open-vented
vessel can be transformed to provide mains pressure hot water with
performance to match any other system.
This is basically the principle the
Boilermate employs. High performance mains pressure hot water without
any of the baggage unvented systems bring with them - G3 Building Regs,
Specialist Installers, Risk of explosion, pressure relief issues and
Boilermate has been around for quite
some time. The system has been widely used throughout the UK within

As a replacement
For those wishing to replace earlier
versions of the Boilermate and Systemate
please be advised that while the function remains similar the new BP model differs internally. Earlier
models contained various auxiliary components (pumps, circuit boards, timers etc).
The design of the new Boilermate BP has made the function
and therefore the need for certain internal components on the earlier
model redundant. The new unit will however need a couple of items added
externally in order to function - namely a circulating pump and
It must also be mentioned
that the function of the new Boilermate BP is to produce
mains pressure hot water only - unlike some earlier models of Boilermate
that also managed domestic heating requirements. When replacing some
earlier models minor adaptation of pipework may be necessary to
facilitate a Y or S plan installation.
A 3kW immersion heater and
a choice of scale inhibitors is available. These however are options and
must be stated and ordered at time of purchase.
The removal of certain
internal components has made the Boilermate visually and operationally
less intimidating to plumbers unfamiliar with the product and/or the
