Principle of Design
The Plate Heat Exchanger is sized to deliver a ‘design’ flow
rate. This flow rate is constantly available at all times, even when the
store is depleted.
The store is sized to deliver the peak flow rate over the required time period. If the flow at the taps is equal or less than the design flow rate, all secondary water is drawn off through the plate heat exchanger. The buffer is only used when the design flow rate is exceeded in periods of high demand.
Because of the design of the store, even when cold, the normal flow rate is still available for use. When the flow falls below the design flow rate after a period of peak use, the excess is used to recharge the store.
The charging pump is in constant operation ensuring the store is kept topped up as necessary.
Specifying a PLATEflow is simple — call 01592 611123
and let us know the design and peak flow rates, along with the output pressure
required and we can design a unit to suit your requirements.
