Wall Mounted Buffer Tanks for Heat Pumps

If you are thinking about using a heat pump on your next project including a buffer tank in the system design will provide significant efficiency and other benefits for the property. At Mibec we are able to offer a wide range of buffer tanks from leading European manufacturers such as Cordivari and one of their new products the wall mounted VT PDC is ideal for use in domestic or small commercial properties where a heat pump has been specified.The tank comes in two sizes – 12, 25 or 50 litres to suit your project and most importantly is designed to be wall mounted to save floor space in the property. The largest sized tank (50 litres) is only 1008mm x 343mm, weighing in at just 16kg so is designed to be easily installed and hidden away. The tank has a mild steel construction with high quality hard thermal insulation and two sturdy mounting brackets (top and bottom).

A buffer tank is designed to add more volume in closed water systems which keeps the temperature in the system at a more consistent level. Stored heat can be immediately accessed without the heat source needing to get up to temperature; this can be very useful for maintaining a constant output and reduces cycling of the compressor units in the heat pump. This in turn reduces the workload on the heat pump making the system more energy efficient and robust and will enhance the longevity of the system. Ultimately this will save the building owner costs on energy bills, repairs and replacements in the long run, in addition to better water temperature control making a small buffer tank a great investment for those considering a heat pump for their project.

In addition to the wall mounted VT PDC, we offer a wide range of larger sized buffer tanks for use in various heating and cooling applications from leading manufacturers with many products held in stock in the UK, for immediate despatch. If an off-the-shelf solution can’t be found to meet your project needs then we also offer bespoke designed but very cost-effective tanks. These special Mibec tanks are custom-made to suit the exact customer requirements in terms of sizes and connections on only a 2-3 week lead time.
