ThermoWise offers high efficiency hot water storage vessels to the commercial and industrial sector – ideal for maximising the performance of your preferred hot water heating system.
ThermoWise supply a wide range of pressure and non-pressure, also custom to customer requirement storage vessels for commercial and industrial use, some with up to 10,000 litres volumetric capacity. ThermoWise offers a fully comprehensive design service on all our tanks, allowing flexibility and ensuring exact specification as per customer’s request.
With our skilled production team, technical advice is available and we can respond to requests from contractors and engineers quickly and competitively.
|Capacity||Diameter||Weld to Weld||Overall Height||Dry Weight||STD Loading|
- We use 6% Toroshpherical Dished ends constructed from 300WA plate.
- Dished end thickness range from 5mm to 10mm dependant on the diameter.
- 610mm to 1070mm dished ends are 5mm in thickness.
- 1220mm and bigger dished ends are 6mm in thickness up to 10mm.
- The shell is also constructed from 300WA steel and has a minimum thickness of 5mm.
- Tanks that are bigger than 5000lt have shells that range from 6mm to 8mm in thickness.
- We weld prep our plates as well as our dished ends to create a perfect butt-weld.
- A 400NB manhole is in place in every vessel for cleaning and inspection purposes.
- The standard vessel has seven 2 inch sockets, for water inlets and out lets as well as extra sockets.
- It also has two ½ inch sockets for temperature and pressure gauges.
- It has a ¾ inch socket for a sacrificial anode placement. When electrolysis takes place in the tank, it will act on the sacrificial anode before compromising the internals of the tank. The sacrificial anode is a replaceable item.
- The tank also has a 1¼ inch drain socket on the bottom of the tank.
- The tank has 2 lifting lugs. The lugs are 8mm thick welded to a 5mm compad that is welded to the tank to prevent any external damage to the tank when rigging takes place.
- Our tanks come standard with element flanges that is suitable for backup elements.
- The tank is welded by means of TIG welding. We perform a standard root run and CO² capping weld.
- The sockets are welded internally and externally to prevent vessel failure.
- We provide full data packs with our tanks which include certification for all material, pressure testing and welders qualifications.
- Vessels ranging from 500lt to 1500lt can only be galvanized due to internal size restrictions.
- Vessels above 1500lt can be galvanized or alternatively treated with our in-house treatment method. The treatment comprises of an extensive sandblast, followed by a coat of Zinc Flamespray. After which it is painted with 2 coats of suitable Apoxy Paint specifically designed for potable water.
- The design operating pressure is 600kPa and test pressure is 900kPa. Pressures can be increased with client request.
- Our vessels are designed in accordance with the specifications of ASME VIII DIV 1: 2010 and
- Manufactured in accordance SANS 347:2010.
Heat Stability Throughout Vessel
ThermoWise Thermal Storage Vessels Fiberglass heat radiation level is 200 times less in comparison to steel tanks.
The ThermoWise Thermal Storage Vessel is built on the principle of stratification and water separation, as the water inside the tank is used only as heating (cooling) medium (battery of energy). Drinking water is heated up through the heat exchange coils inside of the tank. Therefore, cold water from the supply & return line can not mix the stratification layers within the tank.
Ready For Connection
Each ThermoWise Thermal Storage Vessel is pre-configured and all connections have been fitted.
Heat Stability Throughout Vessel
The ThermoWise Thermal Storage Vessel is ultra light and compact, weighing in from 44kg up to 350kg (volume & size depending). The cylindrical design allows for an optimal volume of heating medium. Due to the design and structure of the heat accumulator, tanks can be assembled on site. The Fiberglass Body can be rolled up and carried through any 800mm wide door. The thermal storage vessel can be sized from 250lt up to 20,000lt.
Efficiency Within A Coil
The vessel consists of stainless steel corrugated coils for maximizing the heat uptake.
Glass Fibre Body
The ultimate Hot Water Storage Vessel with extreme advantages: – Temperature resistant up to 95ºC – Lifelong form stability – NO corrosion – Absolute water tight – Ultra light – Can be repaired within a short period of time.
