PULSAflow Thermal Store

New PULSAflow Thermal Store Launched

Fantastic to see our first order for five PULSAflow thermal stores leaving the factory this week.

Our new PULSAflow thermal store is specifically designed to provide a high performance, mains pressure hot water solution.

Bespoke Cylinders For Added Comfort

Another great example of a customers bespoke cylinder requirements and their varied applications.

Not only limited to traditional domestic or commercial applications, but where trains require hot water storage we are also able to design and supply bespoke products specifically for this application.

We manufacture a small copper unvented cylinder that is used to provide mains pressure hot water for overnight sleeper carriages, whilst specially designed rectangular hot water tanks are used in the toilets on the standard carriages.

Slimline Copper Cylinders

Made to Measure

We were recently sent a photo from a homeowner of their existing unit, showing the extremely tight space restrictions, as they were looking for a bespoke replacement slimline indirect unit with insulation.

The original unit was 1500 x 300mm however the customer had a bit more room to work with… around 400-420mm diameter to incorporate the insulation, which we were able to manufacture and deliver within 4 working days. This was part of a planned upgrade, which also incorporated replacing the existing flow boiler.
