Full-Flow® Bladder Expansion Tank
Today’s expansion tanks need to be smarter and safer.
Wessels has a rich history of developing smart-guards for preventative maintenance, such as WessGuard® and WessView® and in the continuing evolution of the tank, safeguards are necessary to protect against new conditions that can lead to biological dangers.
Water storage expansion tanks have been established as a place where pathogens can flourish. Bacteria colonies only need the right conditions -nutrients, temperature, and contact time- to establish growth. Many tank designs incorporate a diffuser to promote mixing. Unfortunately, this only works when water is flowing and even then, there is no guarantee that the water leaves the tank. Wessels Company has designed a vessel that attacks and protects by disrupting this stagnant environment. The design is simple: create a true flow-through configuration. Wessels manufactures expansion tank products built in accordance with the ASME boiler and pressure vessel code.
Wessels Full-Flow Bladder Tanks feature:
- Butyl bladder material –does not support nutrients found on natural rubber
- Water circulation through the tank –every cycle or constant flow
- Elevated heat in thermal applications -every thermal cycle or forced with constant flow
