More About Boiler Expansion Tank Supply
Why Are Boiler Expansion Tanks Important for Heating Systems?
Boiler expansion tanks play a vital role in keeping the water pressure within a boiler regulated, thereby preventing damage from occurring due to pressure changes. Without an expansion tank, sudden increases or decreases in water pressure could lead to problems such as malfunctioning or even bursting of pipes within the boiler system. By using an expansion tank as part of your boiler system, you can protect your equipment and keep it running smoothly over time.
Hydronic vs Thermal Expansion Tank: What's the Difference?
Hydronic and thermal expansion tanks are the two main types used for boiler systems. Although their purpose is the same – regulating water pressure – they differ in terms of material construction and size. A hydronic expansion tank is typically made from stainless or carbon steel and is sized from 6L (liters) to 50L depending on the size requirements of your boiler system. They prevent excess pressure from appearing in hydronic heating systems. On the other hand, a thermal expansion tank features a non-metallic bladder that helps absorb sudden changes in temperature and pressure within a heating system resulting from boiling hot water. These types of tanks usually range in size from 12L up to 3000L and are most often used with large commercial applications but can also be found in residential buildings as well.
