Chilled Water Buffer Tanks are used on chilled water systems. These tanks are available as vertical and conical base tanks up to 30,000 litres. Chilled Water (CHW) systems used to cool buildings indoor air and equipment and are becoming increasingly common in commercial applications such as large data centres and server rooms.
Buffer tanks are a key component in chilled water systems being used to provide additional volume in closed water systems. By adding this extra water capacity can reduce cycling of compressor units, which in turn improves temperature control giving a more consistent cooling system operation. These tanks can also smooth out the loads and demands over the day from the business operations making the cooling system more reliable giving it greater longevity and reducing maintenance requirements.
