The Gledhill Torrent ECO SOL Cylinder utilises a high-efficiency solar coil to allow the homeowner to benefit from the natural solar energy as well as a wide variety of alternative energy inputs. The Torrent ECO only reverts to a conventional boiler when the heat inputs are insufficient from the alternative energy sources..

The Gledhill Torrent ECO SOL Cylinder provides high-performance mains pressure hot water via the highly efficient plate heat exchanger. The central heating circuit can be supplied directly from a sealed system boiler although an auxiliary heating circuit can be connected from the store in which case both the solar and solid fuel energy will also provide an input to the auxiliary heating circuit. The cylinder comes with two return connections for solid fuel and wood burning stoves to enable the homeowner to have an aga running 24 hours a day but still retaining the dedicated solar volume.

Provides mains pressure hot water
Benefit for both heating and hot water
No annual maintenance or safety check requirement
No discharge pipework
No risk of legionella
Inherently safe being an open vented cylinder
No G3 qualification requirement for installation

With the new Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive for hot water cylinders in mind, the new Torrent ECO range has not only improved the benefits of the Torrent, but also added some fantastic new features to provide the home owner an immensely energy efficient thermal store:

Energy saving with a high efficiency ErP ready pump.
Flow sensor providing a 75% reduction of hot water response times.
Improved PCB and software.
Higher store temperatures can be utilised, providing greater benefit from solid fuel inputs.

Please note the diagrams shown include optional extra components.
Additional height for feed and expansion tank will need to be allowed if it is to be sited in the same cupboard.
Vent pipes shown through the side of the feed and expansion tank may not be suitable for all systems. Installers must check suitability.
The standard open vented store relies on an feed and expansion (feed & expansion) tank suitably sited above the highest radiator point to provide sufficient head for the system. As the domestic hot water is at mains pressure, the Torrent ECO Solar itself can be sited anywhere in the property.
Provision is also made within the design for a sealed heating/boiler circuit with the heat exchanger provided which would then operate as a conventional cylinder. Although this would reduce the potential for utilising the solar energy in the HEATING CIRCUIT, it would mean that both the Torrent and the feed and expansion tank can then be sited anywhere in the property, as the feed and expansion is only being used to fill the store with water.
The feed and expansion tank must be sized to take the water expansion of the whole system (ie. solid fuel boiler, cylinder, open flue boiler and auxiliary heating).
The feed and expansion tank is not supplied as standard with the unit, but is available as an optional extra at the time of order.
For solid fuel applications, copper feed and expansion tanks are available as an optional extra at the time of order.
