Cross Section of Therma-Stor Water Heater

Why Heat Recovery?

  1. Maximum Heat Transfer
    The Therma-Stor “hot plate” heat exchanger provides the maximum heat transfer surface area while minimizing the refrigerant pressure drop.
  2. Quick Recovery
    The “stratified” tank, with the hottest water near the top, allows for quick recovery and efficient heat transfer. This maximizes the availability of the hot water. Therma-Stor tanks also operate at low temperatures, maximizing efficiency and preventing scaling.
    • Simple Operation
      Therma-Stor tanks have no motors or pumps, making them extremely easy to operate and maintain. Optional auxiliary electric resistance backup is also available.
    • Compressor Protection
      Therma-Stor tanks extend the life of cooling units, due to the fact that compressors don’t need to work as hard to remove heat. As a result, compressors and condenser fans don’t need to run as often.
    • Compact Efficiency
      The entire system occupies minimal space; it heats and stores the water in a single unit.
  3. Long Life
    The industrial glass-lined water storage tank resists corrosion. It also has two replaceable anodes for extra protection. Plus, Therma-Stor tanks come with a full five-year warranty on the heat exchanger and water tank.
  4. Certifications and Approvals
    Therma-Stor hot water tanks are thoroughly tested and listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc (UL). They meet all codes required for double-wall vented heat exchangers. CSA approved units are available. Foam-in-place 2″ insulation (R16) meets ASHRAE 90 standards.
    • Flexibility
      Therma-Stor units fit any refrigeration system. They can accommodate compressor systems from ½ hp to 100 hp or more. Multiple units can be piped together to match refrigeration capacity and hot water demand.
    • Energy and Cost Efficiency
      By expanding the condensing surface of a cooling system, Therma-Stor tanks improve the efficiency of both air-cooled and water-cooled condensers. A Therma-Stor unit connected to an air-cooled condenser reduces heat, which maximizes compressor efficiency. A water cooled-condenser connected to a Therma-Stor tank requires less cooling water. In either case, this means double savings: reduced water or electricity costs — and free hot water.
