Gledhill has developed a range of cylinders
specifically for solar applications, therefore
providing an efficient
way of providing domestic hot
water. Each model features a dedicated high
performance solar coil,
transferring the maximum
amount of heat from the solar circuit to the stored
The cylinders are compatible with a wide range of
solar systems available and have been designed to
the dedicated solar volume.
The indirect cylinders are heated by a conventional
boiler (either gas or oil) through a second high
performance coil. The direct models are electrically
heated cylinders, using the 3kW immersion heater
supplied with the unit, and incorporating a high
performance solar coil.
Both are capable of providing a system that meets
the requirements of Building Regulations,
provided they are correctly matched to the solar
panels and the hot water requirement.
The solar range is based on the standard Stainless
Lite cylinders, therefore still providing
mains pressure hot water, low standing heat losses
and lightweight construction.
