Fast Recovery Cylinders

This type of cylinder is extremely efficient and when fitted with a condensing boiler will produce your hot water not only in a fraction of the time (approximately 12 minutes), but consequently at a fraction of the cost. (44% cheaper than a conventional system).

In an average home the initial outlay for a high efficiency fast recovery cylinder will pay for itself in less than one year and give you the luxury of hot water on tap 24 hours/7 days a week.

Superduty - Multicoil for High Performance

The Superduty Concept

Unlike a conventional cylinder which utilises a single 28mm diameter coil, Superduty mulitcoils are engineered with a manifold which divides into four coiled tubes. This arrangement ensures that far more water is in contact with the copper wall of the heat exchanger, dramatically improving heat transfer between primary and secondary waters.

The Superduty multicoil heat exchanger is proven to provide cost effective operation and performance, unparalleled in systems of this type.

Just look at the performance graphs!

Ultra fast recovery of hot water allows for a reduction in cylinder size. This development has resulted in the product we know today as the Superduty, a cylinder used and specified by energy conscious Local Authorities, Housing Associations and private builders alike. All Albion Superduty cylinders are WRAS and NHBC approved.

Better Economy

Fuel saving

The installation of a Superduty will reduce boiler operating times and cycling periods resulting in savings of up to 40% compared with systems using conventional indirect systems.

Improves boiler efficiency

The effective heat treatment transfer of the Superduty results in very cool primary return temperatures which maintain the boiler operation on full load - even in summer months! This virtually eliminates expensive boiler cycling, a major contribution to fuel saving.

A practical example is to compare the hot water available from a CF45 against that from a standard indirect 900 x 450mm cylinder. Using a 15Kw boiler the standard cylinder will deliver approximately 175 litres of hot water per hour (based on 40 minutes recovery). The Superduty CF45 will produce approximately 340 litres in these circumstances (8 minutes recovery).

System Control

Superduty Cisternfl ow cylinders are suitable for fully pumped primary systems fuelled from mains gas, lpg or oil boilers. They are compatible with W, Y and S plan systems. Quicker reheat times are achieved with W plan systems. A probe type insertion thermostat is required to provide increased temperature sensing and accuracy over that of the strap-on type. A connection is provided on each Superduty for this fitment.

Plenty of Hot Water

The recovery times are based on a primary flow of 82 o C and a recovery from 20 o C through to 60 o C. Times are greater than the Albion bench test in order to provide figures which are easily achievable in the home.

System Control

Showerflange is particularly suited to Superduty where the use of an Immersion heater is not recommended.

The flange converts a 2 1/4" Heater Boss into a 22mm compression fitting for a bespoke shower connection.
