HOT WATER AS AND WHEN YOU NEED IT
Centralized and decentralized preparation of domestic hot water in accordance with the continuous flow principle offers the advantage of on-demand supply without prior storage of domestic hot water, thus providing effective protection against Legionella bacteria.
HYGIENIC HOT DRINKING WATER
Good quality drinking water is fundamental to our nutritional needs. Legislators have set down principles in this regard in a variety of ordinances and directives. Replacing drinking water storage units with fresh water stations ensures the needs-based heating of drinking water and the associated hygienic requirements. In addition, such systems provide reliable protection against scalding and ensure the best possible use of the available energy source.
HEATING DRINKING WATER WITH FRESH WATER STATIONS
A larger quantity of heated drinking water is stored for supply in domestic hot water storage tanks. Such volumes must be stored at a constant temperature of >60°C to avoid the risk of germ formation. Should technical problems arise in the system, however, this leads to an increased hygiene risk owing to the large volume. Fresh hot water stations only heat the drinking water immediately on demand and thus avoid the hygiene problems that come with storage. The thermal energy required is drawn directly from a storage tank or stratified storage unit and the process water contained within. The user is protected against scalding at the same time thanks to the electronic regulation of the outlet temperature.
CAN BE COMBINED WITH ANY ENERGY SYSTEM
The use of thermal energy from a storage tank means that the decentralized heating of drinking water does not depend on the way in which heat is generated: The storage tank can be loaded by means of solar energy, gas or oil-fueled burners, pellet or wood-burning boilers or heat pumps.
DECENTRALIZED HEATING OF DRINKING WATER FOR RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION
Using the fresh hot water and home station means that there is no need for large central drinking water storage systems and thus minimizes the technical measures needed to protect against Legionella. In order to cater for the hot water requirements of individual residential units, Taconova has added the TacoTherm Fresh Femto and TacoTherm Dual Piko transfer stations to its range, enabling the decentralized supply of hot water in residential buildings.
HIGH HOT WATER OUTPUT IN COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES
In commercial buildings, such as sports halls, high simultaneous drawing of domestic hot water is to be expected. For these applications, the TacoTherm Fresh Mega2 and Peta product versions can be installed in a cascade. The number of units in this case also ensures excellent fail-safe reliability for heating drinking water. The solar heat stored in the storage tank is thus also available to support the heating process, enhancing efficiency.
ELECTRONIC OR MECHANICAL CONTROL
While the larger fresh water stations use electronic regulation, the supply of heat in the TacoTherm Fresh Femto is controlled by a proportional controller by means of the pressure differential on the primary side. This smaller station is suitable both for centralized and decentralized preparation of domestic hot water. The TacoTherm Fresh Mega2 and Peta station variants also offer the option of integrating the station with the building control system via an interface.
OPTIMUM USE OF SPACE
The compact design of the fresh water station outside the solar storage unit and storage tank means that there is no need for a hot drinking water storage tank and the additional space available can be use to add more or bigger storage tanks.
