The Torrent Stainless Open Vented Can Be Programmed to Maximise all Alternative Energy Sources

 

This Gledhill Torrent Stainless OV allows the homeowner to utilise inputs from a wood burning or solid fuel boiler to supplement the energy generated by a conventional boiler. The Torrent Stainless OV can be programmed to maximise all alternative energy sources, before diverting to a conventional boiler. One of the benefits of the open vented boiler configuration is that the whole output of the boiler is available to the thermal store. This will provide an improvement in the operational efficiency of the boiler, reducing the primary energy usage and running costs.

The Torren Stainless OV provides high-performance mains pressure hot water via the plate heat exchanger. The heat energy provided from the primary heat source and/or solid fuel input is circulated from the store to the central heating circuit, allowing rapid heat-up of a radiator system.

In situations where no gas or solid fuel source is available the Torrent Stainless OV can be used exclusively from the two 3kW electric immersion elements which will provide both hot water and heating for the property. The obvious application is apartments where no gas main is available, but this could also be appropriate where electricity is available from a renewable or low carbon source.

It is possible for the auxillary heating to be supplied from the store, but this is only powered by the lowest immersion. It is important to note that the design heat loss, of the rooms to be heated, must be less than the lowest immersion power.

If connected to the standard grid then the thermal store is the perfect solution to maximise usage of an off-peak tariff where arrangements should be made to power the lower immersion element, in order to minimise the running costs.

 


Please Note:

  • Additional height for feed and expansion tank will need to be allowed if it is to be sited in the same cupboard
  • Vent pipes shown through the side of the feed and expansion tank may not be suitable for all systems. Installers must check suitability
  • The standard open vented store relies on a feed and expansion tank suitably sited above the highest radiator point to provide sufficient head for the system
  • The feed and expansion tank must be sized to take the water expansion of the whole system (ie. solid fuel boiler, cylinder, open flue boiler and auxiliary heating)
  • The feed and expansion tank is not supplied as standard with the unit

 

Key Features of Gledhill Torrent Stainless Open Vented Cylinder 350 Litre

 

The Gledhill Torrent Stainless Open Vented Cylinder (350 Litre) is a type of hot water storage cylinder designed for residential and commercial applications. While specific features may vary depending on the model and version, here are some key features commonly associated with open-vented cylinders like the Gledhill Torrent Stainless (350 Litre):

 

  • High Capacity: With a substantial 350-litre capacity, this cylinder can store a large volume of hot water, making it suitable for properties with high hot water demands, such as larger households or commercial settings.
  • Open-Vented Design: Open-vented cylinders rely on a cold water storage tank, typically located in a loft or elevated position, to maintain water pressure. This design is suitable for properties with specific plumbing setups and loft access.
  • Stainless Steel Construction: Stainless steel construction ensures durability, corrosion resistance, and maintains water quality by preventing contamination or taste issues.
  • Indirect Heating: Many open-vented cylinders, including the Gledhill Torrent Stainless, use an indirect heating method, often through a coil or heat exchanger, to heat water efficiently and precisely.
  • Energy Efficiency: Effective insulation minimizes heat loss, contributing to improved energy efficiency and potential energy savings.
  • Safety Features: Open-vented cylinders typically incorporate safety features such as temperature controls, pressure relief valves, and vented components to ensure safe and reliable operation.
  • Quick Recovery: These cylinders often have a rapid recovery rate, meaning they can reheat water quickly during high-demand periods, ensuring a continuous supply of hot water.
  • Compatibility: The cylinder can be integrated with various heating systems, including those powered by boilers, heat pumps, solar thermal systems, or other heat sources.
  • Reliable Hot Water Supply: Open-vented cylinders provide a stable and consistent supply of hot water, even during peak demand periods, ensuring comfort and convenience.
  • Versatility: They can be used for various hot water applications, including domestic hot water supply and heating system support.
  • Reduced Scaling: Some models may include features to minimize scaling and sediment buildup, prolonging the cylinder's lifespan and maintaining its efficiency.
  • Maintenance-Friendly: Open-vented cylinders are generally low-maintenance, requiring less upkeep compared to some other hot water storage systems.
  • Longevity: Stainless steel construction and corrosion resistance contribute to a longer lifespan and reduced risk of degradation over time.
