Lochinvar Introduces New Solar Heating Tank Models

[Lebanon, TN] Lochinvar, a manufacturer of high-efficiency water heating products, has expanded its equipment line with the introduction of its Thermal-Stor storage tank, which is designed primarily for systems that incorporate hydronic space heating. Heat generated from solar collectors or ground-source heat pumps is transferred to the storage tank via a spherical heat exchanger affixed to the side of the tank. The product maximizes tank stratification and system efficiency by minimizing the mixing of hot and cold water. When coupled with a backup boiler, the unit acts as a hydraulic separator that decouples the system loads from the boiler output, eliminating boiler short cycling. Nine Thermal-Stor models are available, with capacities ranging from 125 to 900 gallons.
