Utilise multiple heat sources including solar, wood burner, AGA, stove, boiler, heat pump and renewable energies without the need for addition gadgets - straight into the Store
The Torrent RE in conjunction with a Solar Collector Array and alternative heat sources will contribute energy to your household heating requirements. With intelligent control systems available to choose where to source energy for the Heat Store, your Torrent RE will provide mains pressure hot water whilst remaining vented to atmosphere, therefore preserving a safe domestic environment.

The cylinders can be configured to simultaneously accept heat from different sources enhancing efficiency and economy in your household system. At last, you can utilise the heat output from such sources as a wood burner, an AGA, an oil boiler, a gas boiler and a Solar collector array (to name but a few), store it or distribute as a wet central heating system or convert cold mains pressure water into hot upon demand by simply opening a tap.

Sensor pockets located along the length of the cylinder feed back temperature gradient information to a management system of your choosing, allowing intelligent management of the most favourable heat source at any given moment.

Torrent RE cylinders are often installed by discerning householders who plan future expansion to their system utilising renewable energies. Once the cylinder is installed the subsequent addition of a Solar Input for example becomes relatively simple - without the need for major disruption to a functional system.

The Torrent RE is now available with or without a primary heat exchanger (boiler coil). If you wish to fire your boiler directly into the shell of the cylinder and run an open vented central heating system choose the OV Model. If you wish to run a sealed primary and central heating system choose the SP Model. Don't hesitate to ask for advice.
