Although the term 'calorifier' is the generic name for a hot water storage vessel, it is specifically used to describe a large vessel working under high pressure which would be found in larger buildings such as schools, hospitals, and other industrial premises where there is a much greater demand for hot water than in domestic premises.
Our calorifiers are usually made from copper as we believe it's high tolerance to corrosion and excellent anti-bacterial properties make it a superior material to the alternatives; however, we can also manufacture units from mild steel and stainless steel.
We can manufacture calorifiers to operate with a vented or unvented system as well as direct or indirect heat sources. Our indirect units are also suitable for heat input from steam systems and can be fitted with a removable 'U' tube battery. An access manhole or a bolted head can be fitted to aid cleaning, maintenance or repair.
Our polyurethane foam lagging can be applied up to a thickness of 100mm and is the most environmentally friendly type available, with an 'ozone depletion potential' of zero and a 'global warming potential' of one. However, for a more aesthetically pleasing finish, we can offer a steel case with a metallic finish.
