Buffer Tanks

Chilled Water Buffer Tanks
Designed for chilled water systems with insufficient water volume capacity, in relation to the chiller capacity. Relatively low water volume systems require additional “buffer” capacity for the system to eliminate problems such as excessive chiller cycling, poor temperature control, and erratic system operation. The properly sized American Wheatley CBT tank adds the necessary volume to “buffer” the system.

Hot Water Buffer Tanks
American Wheatley HS Series Hot water buffer tanks are designed to operate with modern high efficient low-mass modular boiler systems. The American Wheatley hot water buffer tank ensures minimal ΔT and provides the necessary thermal storage to prevent short cycling that could occur during low load conditions.

    Hot Water Buffer Tanks
    Prevents flow in one circuit from interfering with the flow from another circuit
    Eliminates the need for a primary loop circulating pump, air separator, and strainer, thereby reducing initial cost as well as operating cost
    Eliminates complicated piping, reduces labor and piping costs
    Sized for no more than 4 fps, low velocity in the vessel results in low-pressure drops
    The correctly installed hydraulic separation allows the use of multiple circulators to operate independently without interfering with each other
    Ideal for multiple load systems
    American Wheatley manufactures ASME hydraulic separators in standard sizes 40 gallons through 400 gallons with connections, 2″ through 16″
    Custom sizes readily available
