Applications Manual

5.3 Tank loading

Refer to drawings 13.2 and 13.3 on pages 32 and 33.
Tank loading pairs tankless water heaters with storage
tanks to maximize peak ow for high demand applications.
A tank load system, because of the added storage, can
provide a high peak ow with fewer tankless units and
lower installed cost.
These guidelines should be followed to maximize system
output:
f
Ensure flow through each water heater is between
3.5-5.0 gpm.
f
Isolation valves or boiler drains should be installed to
facilitate descaling in applications with hard water.
f
For best performance, plumb the system or configure
the tank to draw cold supply water into the water
heater during hot water use.
f
Maintain a 20 degree temperature difference between
tankless set-point and desired tank temperature.
f
Do not use a cascading kit in a tank loading
application.
f
When multiple tankless water heaters are used, the
total equivalent length of piping to each unit should
be kept roughly equal. A reverse return piping scheme
is recommended to equalize flow through each water
heater.
f
For tank temperature settings above 120° F, the Therm
C 1210 ESC is recommended. Other high capacity
Therms including the 830 ES, 940 ES/ESO, C 950 ES
and C 1050 ES can be used, but a high temperature
kit (part 7736500074) is required for each. In these
applications a thermostatic mixing valve is required.
