Example ImageNot sure which unit you need?  See our handy descriptions below or call us for some straight forward advice:

Cyclone Indirect Cylinder:
For use when an external heat source (such as a boiler) is providing the heat for the cylinder.
Cyclone Direct:
Direct hot water cylinders use heat sources that are physically located within the cylinder itself similar to an immersion heater, to heat the water. These direct cylinders are particularly located in either flats or apartments where there is no access to gas & are supplied with 3kw Incoloy immersions fitted as standard.
High Gain Indirect:
For Heat Pump ready cylinders our coil quality sets us apart. Cyclone High Gain range of hot water cylinders use high recovery smooth tube quick recovery coils for optimal performance.
Internal Expansion:
A Direct cylinder with built in expansion, removing the need for an external expansion vessel.
Internal Expansion Indirect:
An Indirect cylinder with built in expansion, removing the need for an external expansion vessel.
Pre-Plumb Indirect:
Dramatically reducing installation time by including the heating zone controls and pumps pre fitted as part of the unit.
Direct Solar:
A direct cylinder capable of taking heat from your solar system.
High Gain Solar:
As per the high gain indirect, with the added facility to heat the cylinder with a solar system via a high recovery coil.
Twin Solar:
Designed to work with any solar system, the twin solar cylinders are manufactured with 9mm sensor pockets for the solar controll temperature sensors to ensure that the solar system performs at its optimum level.
Slimline Indirect:
Indirect cylinders that have been designed for the use in tight areas where width is an issue.
Slimline Direct:
Direct cylinders that have been designed for the use in tight areas where width is an issue.
Thermal Store:
Solution for multi energy heat inputs. Domestic hot water is either produced through the fresh water module mounted on the front of the cylinder or via an internal coil. The thermal store has a number of direct connections to allow for multiple heat source inputs.
Horizontal Indirect:
For when only a horizontal cylinder will fit in the space available.
