Our products are among the leaders in the solar and bio
energy sector. They provide our clients with highly comfortable and
cost saving heating, as well as minimise the impact on climate
change. At Stocksbro, we are highly conscious of the environment
and climate change, so they are vital factors in determining the
products we make.
There are many reasons for installing
a storage tank. A storage tank as the centre of the
system allows for very flexible solutions. In practical terms, any
kind of energy benefits from the use of a storage tank, whilst
for wood fired and solar energy based systems, it is a must.
The buffer tank stores the energy produced from whichever source
you choose, e.g. solar energy, pellets or wood. You can use a
complementary electric heating element, which also provides a good
A buffer tank will supply heat where you need it, whether it
is to your radiators, heated floors or hot water.
The storage tank works by storing energy, thus allowing you to
always use the energy source that is the cheapest at the time, as
well as at their maximum level of effectiveness. The energy is then
distributed to the various heating devices, as
A good, well built storage tank can double the energy output
of solar panels. Our buffer tanks, like the Bio-Sol Boiler,
are made to provide your solar panels with the best possible
operating conditions. The effectiveness of storing solar energy
depends on the extent to which you can avoid remixing in the tank
and how good the heat layering is.
Correctly sized and optimally placed coils, a diffuser on the
return connection and well placed connections, all work together to
result in the all important heat layering.
makes the storage tanks highly effective.
Once your energy has been produced, it is vital that it is not lost
without being put to good use. That is why we insulate our tanks
and the Bio-Sol Boiler with a full 90 mm of Freon-free polyurethane
foam insulation. As the only manufacturer, we use fire-proof foam
(Class B2) that is bonded to a wrought aluminium plate in the
mantle walls. The cap is protected by the same foam, whilst the
surface is made of flame retardant ABS plastic. The insulation is
easy to assemble/remove at installation.
All our products, both insulated and non-insulated and unlike many
of our competitor's products, are fully anti-rust treated, even on
the bottom. This ensures peace of mind and leads to a long product
