Stokvis BV Series Provides Compact Response To DHW Demand

The Econoplate BV Series from Stokvis Energy Systems


Commerical locations such as schools, universities, hotels, prisons, carehomes and leisure centres and all buildings of similar size, along with large domestic dwellings are proving to be popular applications for theEconoplate BV Seriesof semi-instantaneous hot water units, thanks to their responsive high performance, compactness and lower capital cost compared to traditional solutions.  

The recently launched Econoplate BV Series presents specifiers with a wide choice of sizes and outputs to suit premises with modest plant room space and medium levels of hot water demand. These are met by combining one of the manufacturer's long proven Econoplate plate heat exchangers with different sizes of storage vessel. Crucially, the hybrid unit takes up less space than installing a separate Econoplate PHE, and could typically cut capital cost by £2K or more.

The BV (Brazed heat exchanger with Vessel) are capable of supplying domestic hot water direct on demand, or rapidly reheating the stored volume which can be 300, 500, 800 or 1,000 litres.

There are five heat output capacities, rising from 56 to 231 kW, with flow rates from 606 litres in 10 minutes, up to 1,551 litres in 10 minutes. The peak output over a one hour period can be a highly impressive 4,851 litres. Based on a primary flow temperature of 80° centigrade, recovery time for the smaller stores can be as little as six minutes.

As with other heating and hot water equipment within the Stokvis Energy Systems range, the Econoplate BV units are built to a very high standard with sophisticated control options while, for higher demand applications, multiple units could be installed in parallel.
