Global Water Expansion Vessels
Expansion vessels, also known as expansion tanks or pressure vessels, are an integral component of many heating and cooling systems. Their primary function is to accommodate the thermal expansion of fluids such as water or refrigerant within these systems, thereby maintaining stable pressure levels and preventing potential damage. At Heating and Plumbing World, we stock a range of expansion vessels by leading brands at competitive prices.
One of the key principles behind expansion vessels is their ability to regulate pressure variations caused by temperature fluctuations. When a fluid is heated, its volume expands, which leads to an increase in pressure. Without an expansion vessel, this pressure surge can place excessive stress on the system and this could potentially cause leaks, bursts or damage to vital components. Conversely, when the fluid cools down, its volume contracts which can create a vacuum and draw air or contaminants into the system. Expansion vessels help prevent these issues by providing a cushion for fluid expansion and contraction.
At Heating and Plumbing World, we stock expansion vessels made by Global Water. Global Water is a renowned manufacturer dedicated to providing innovative water solutions and services worldwide.
