Torrent Multifuel Heat Pump model

Mains pressure hot water from open vented cylinder using renewable energy

Gledhill have led the way in developing the concept of thermal stores

since 1980. The latest version has been designed to get the best possible

performance from a heat pump in a unit capable of being linked to other

alternative energy sources such as wood burning stoves or solar thermal

panels. There are numerous other possible installation options (e.g.

heating taken directly from the heat pump. These are shown in detail in

the installation manual).
 

The true significance of a thermal store in these circumstances should not

be underestimated;

A Thermal Store is safe to use with a wood burning stove.

• Energy put into the store from whatever source can be used for both heating and hot water.

• There is no requirement for a pressure and temperature relief valve, there is therefore no need to design safe discharge facilities into the property.

• A thermal store can operate with less “on-peak” top up than an unvented cylinder when heat pumps are used as the main energy input.
 

Gather heat from different sources

The Torrent HP is a copper primary water thermal store that can accept

input from a number of energy sources because it is the neutral point of

the whole system. When an alternative unvented cylinder is used with

a heat pump, it is necessary to raise the temperature (often by electric

immersion heaters) to thermally disinfect the storage vessel and this

effectively lowers the efficiency of the heat pump.
 

If a wood burning stove is used with a thermal store there is often no

need to boost the temperature for hot water production. If however, the

heat pump will not raise the temperature sufficiently to give an adequate

supply of hot water, the Torrent HP is supplied with an immersion heater

and a thermostatic pocket.

 

Torrent Multifuel is supplied with numerous connections

The Torrent HP comes complete with all the necessary connections for various heat sources to join to the cylinder, together with connections to draw heat directly from the store for central heating.
 

The heat pump connections are 22mm compression fittings and those for the solar heat exchanger are 15mm. Also included are two 10mm dry pockets for the heat pump sensors together with a 15mm internal threaded connection to allow a dry pocket to be fitted for the cylinder thermostat.

TORRENT HP & HPSol Tech Manual

An optional Incalloy Immersion Heater (calibrated to run at store temperature) is available for use with the Torrent range of Thermal Stores. Please be aware that whilst this immersion heater looks similar to many standard types it is designed to operate at the much higher temperatures typical to thermal stores. Installing a standard immersion heater in a thermal store can give the impression of a fault because of its inability to reach the required operational temperature.

--

An F&E Tank (feed and expansion tank) is required when installing a thermal store which provides both a vessel into which the store may breathe and means by which to maintain the store level. The F&E tank is not included with the cylinder. A 16 litre model is available as an optional extra and should be specified at the time of order. You are of course at liberty to supply and use an alternative vessel of the appropriate size.
