Dimplex now offers not only the complete renewable space heating
system, but the launch of the new EC-Eau range of unvented water
cylinders for heat pumps and solar thermal delivers a complete
renewable water heating solution as well.
Manufactured from 60 percent recycled materials, the range has been designed with environmental sensitivity and efficient performance in mind, to deliver mains pressure hot water from renewable sources. To optimise the efficiency of the renewable system they complement, the cylinders feature heat exchangers with a corrugated surface, which maximises surface area while maintaining a high useable volume of water.
As different on the outside as they are on the inside, the EC-Eau range has a hardwearing black outer shell consisting of 100 percent recycled materials to minimise environmental impact. 60mm of CFC-free foam injected insulation gives excellent heat retention for reduced heat loss and energy consumption, while clever touches like recessed immersion heater and thermostat housings also help to minimise heat loss and boost energy efficiency.
The heat pump cylinder range features large surface area coils specifically sized to match the requirements of Dimplex heat pumps and includes models from 125 to 300 litres. The solar thermal range features sizes from 175 to 300 litres with all capacities available in a choice of single or dual coil options. All cylinders provide mains pressure hot water for fast filling baths and powerful showers and feature an immersion for sterilisation and back-up heating.
The EC-Eau range also features direct and indirect unvented cylinders offering the same excellent performance levels as the existing Dimplex SCxn range. Incorporating many of the design features of the heat pump and solar thermal cylinders, the direct and indirect cylinders provide highly efficient mains pressure hot water for simultaneous supply of water to all bathrooms – without the need for a cold water storage tank.
With 60mm of low GWP foam insulation to minimise heat loss and innovative features such as recessed immersion thermostats to further reduce energy wastage, the cylinders are supplied with expansion vessel and all necessary safety equipment required by governing legislation. Finished in a tough dove grey textured plastic coating, sizes range from 100 to 300 litres and all models have an external diameter of 580mm.
Both the renewable and conventional EC-Eau cylinders feature a 100 percent recyclable inner vessel with a 25 year guarantee, manufactured from premium grade duplex stainless steel for a cylinder with low maintenance and long life.
