Altecnic Reflex 8L Heating Expansion Vessel

Altecnic offer a complete range of expansion vessels to meet the requirements of most heating or cooling systems. Expansion vessels for heating systems are manufactured to meet the requirements of PED 97/23/EC Directive and BS EN 13831:2007 'closed expansion vessels with built in diaphragm for installation in water'.

In a closed heating system water cannot be compressed so any increase in volume, created by an increase in temperature, has to be accommodated by an expansion vessel. When water is cold, the pre-charge pressure forces the diaphragm against the tank towards the inlet. As the temperature increases, the expanded water volume pushes against the diaphragm creating additional volume for the water to enter. When the temperature decreases, the pre-charge pressure forces the water from the tank and back into the main heating system. This maintains a constant pressure within the heating system helping to reduce energy consumption.

Features and Benefits:

  • 8 Litre Heating Expansion Vessel
  • Epoxy Coated in Grey
  • Suitable for Flow Temperatures up to 120°C
  • Reliable Structure Suitable for Internal Pressures up to 6 Bar
  • Non-Replaceable Diaphragm
  • Reduces Energy Consumption
  • Altecnic Expansion Vessels are all Tested According to the Pressure Systems Directive
  • 1 Year Manufacturer Guarantee (From Installation)
