The dual energy cylinder (electric immersion heater and U-tube heater) is a solution which combines multiple energies to optimise operating costs (for example, heating from a hot water heating circuit during the winter and electric elements in during the summer). It is designed for all types of semi-instantaneous or total accumulation domestic hot water (ECS) production systems for use in residential properties or industrial premises.

It amasses a reserve of water either through an exchanger fixed directly onto the tank and fed by a primary water circuit (hot water for heating), low pressure vapour or any energy recovery system, or thanks to an electric immersion heater.
The volume is sufficient to meet peaks in consumption without temperature fluctuations. With an immersion heater located in the top section of the device (optional integrated loop heater kit), you can quickly replenish hot water reserves in accordance with set point temperatures, providing additional power, which is necessary to meet peaks in demand. The dual energy heater is available with four different types of tank to meet all needs:

Advantages

Multi-purpose: particularly suited for use with solar energy recovery systems, heat pumps (preheating) or solid or gaseous fuel boilers.
• Significant hot water storage capacity to meet peaks in demand.
• Temperature stability for distributed DHW.
Rapid reheating: considerable power.
Less heat generator operating cycles.
• Can be used at a constant temperature of up to 95°C (depending on the model).
Cost-effective solution (heating element directly integrated into the tank).
Quick and easy to install: equipment delivered to site with pre-assembled thermal equipment (can be easily removed if required).
Easy to maintain: removable heating elements.
Extended warranty for stainless steel version.
Non-standard version available on request
