unvented indirect cylinders?
Probably need to be around 150 litre.
I think you'd struggle, as they would need to be unnecessarily strong.
Hadn't thought of that. Why would squatness matter, tho'?
Tempest Cylinder TSMD150 ?
Short and fat has more surface area on the curved surface, so needs to be stronger there, easier engineering wise to have the other side longer. Strongest possible shape is a globe.
Telford do a horizontal cylinder which is a possibility provided it ain't too long.
Many thanks gents
Vaillant uniSTOR 150l also a 120 ltr version available.
Give RM cylinders a call 01924 22 42 82 and see what they can supply or manufacture - for some they will make to your size.
They can be made to order
But you can email the cylinder manufacturers on what size you need,they sell cylinders all around Europe for domestic and marine use.not all cylinders are advertised in the Uk.
Not a fan of horizontal unvented
It would really have to be off-the-shelf for cost considerations.
Why don't you like horizontal ones, t'Teach? Any drawbacks to them?
RM Cylinders do not appear to have a very large premium for specials - if any. The last quote from them which included moving the Coil fittings, moving a flange and adding an extra flange was about £20 extra. Give their Tech Support a call - he is always helpful.
Blimey, I'm surprised at that! Worth considering then.
