Thermocube Features

ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The panels are constructed from 43 kg/m3 polyurethane, foamed between 2 Chromadek sheets. The unique patented panel design eliminates temperature “bridging” and gives the tank outstanding strength and insulation properties with an R-value of >2.65 The heat exchangers are fabricated from 316L stainless steel spiral corrugated tubing with 0.3mm wall thickness which provides exceptional heat transfer properties. The large bore tube provides the necessary surface area to afford exceptional efficiency with a low water pressure drop. These heat exchangers have a maximum operating pressure of 10 bar.

ALTERNATIVE HEAT SOURCE
Superb junction point for combining different heat sources like solar panels, waste heat, heat pumps, gas etc. Perfect storage solution for low pressure drain back solar systems.

HYGIENE
The THERMOCUBE™ system maintains a high water hygiene level by separating the storage water from the potable sanitised water. Legionella and bacteria growth is virtually eliminated in this indirect system. Fresh sanitised municipal water is fed directly into the hot water heat exchanger system with a first in first out principle. The smooth shiny inner tube surface resists limescale and sludge deposits. The corrugated spiral design causes the water to vortex and agitate. This increases the heat exchanger efficiency and reduces the possibility of the build-up of solids. Deposits of limescale, sediments, sludge and rust can accumulate in traditional steel pressurised tanks. This can become a breeding ground for bacteria. This is not possible with the THERMOCUBE™ system. Heat pumps can be used without the possibility of cross contaminating the water with oil and refrigerant from the refrigeration system.

EXCEPTIONAL CORROSION RESISTANCE
The heat exchangers are fabricated from heat-treated 316L stainless steel spiral tubing. This grade of stainless steel has an exceptionally high resistance to corrosion, pitting, and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. Bulkhead fittings and supply and return headers are grade 316 Stainless steel.

TANK AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE
The hot water is stored and heated at atmospheric pressure, preventing a possibly explosive situation and the need for pressure safety controls and expensive preventive maintenance measures.

LIFE SPAN
The THERMOCUBE™ stores water at atmospheric pressure eliminating the stresses of expansion and contraction associated with pressurized tanks. The THERMOCUBE™ is fitted with an EPDM rubber geomembrane liner that is flexible, resists temperature shocks and is puncture resistant. The liner is easily repairable or replaceable. All components of the tank can be individually replaced.
