Buffer Cylinder 24l., 4 x 1 1/4" tapings + 2kW heating element
BHE buffer tanks are designed to operate either with cold or hot water. Their main purpose is to store sufficient volume of heating medium and as a consequence, reduce the on/off switchings of main heat source – mainly heat pump. Additional function is to act as a hydraulic separator (low loss header – LLH) between the heating circuit and the installation circuit, so to ensure the heat pump has always the correct flow rate.
BHE buffer tanks are made of mild steel, insulated with polystyrene foam and leatherette coating. All units are equipped with automatic air vent and neodymium magnet separator placed on drain valve.
Neodymium magnet separator (NMS) for BHE buffer tanks
NMS consists of very strong neodymium magnet and metal basket construction built on standard drain valve. Ferromagnetic particles, according to different studies, represent between 50 and 80% of all central heating system residues. Those elements are particularly dangerous to installations equipped with electronic pumps, as well as other high-valued and very sensible components such as valves or sensors. NMS is placed in the bottom part of BHE (or any other device with drain valve) facilitating residue collection. Filling state can be easily checked by momentarily turning off drain valve – low or no flow indicates necessity to clean device.
