Description

500 Litres Tank.

A buffer tank is a hot water storage tank, accumulator tank that is well insulated having minimal thermal loss and is designed to smooth out any great temperature oscillations as well as storing heat for long after biomass boiler runs out of fuel then shuts down.
Looking at a scenario where user using DWBi boiler, one has filled the boiler with fuel and allowed the temperature to build. Assuming the first load of fuel was not quite enough for the property to reach desired temperature, user then topped up the boiler with more fuel.
The solid fuel boiler was then left to run for approx. 20-30 minutes, long enough for a good size cherry to form inside the fire box. A desired house temperature was then achieved causing thermostats to shut off. This would cause the boiler to reach its set temperature and the controller will shut off oxygen supply to the fire in order to stop the cycle. 
With the oxygen shut off, residual heat from the cherry still radiating is now causing temperature to build up, how much by, would be directly related to the size of cherry or more down to how much extra fuel was added during top up. This can cause temperature to increase by as much as 20 - 30 degrees C. 
To harness this and to keep the temperature steady, a leak off radiator or a buffer tank is used. The accumulator tank being more efficient solution of all systems as it will even out any temperature changes so that a steady flow is maintained and store the extra heat for when it is needed. If the boiler and buffer are well matched to the property size, temperature change is rarely more than +/- 8 degrees C. whilst maintaining good heat delivery for as long as for 18hr during winter months from one boiler fill.
There are 8 large 1&3/4 inch connections on the buffer tank, this enables the unit to be connected to multiple heat sources or be used as a immersion tank. There are also number of smaller ones, which are used for draining of the system, bleeding, inserts for temperature gauges or connection of pressure vessel.
When sizing a tank many different variables are taken in to consideration and its best to give us a call so that equipment chosen performs to users satisfaction.
