The Stokvis Econoplate BV Series presents specifiers with a wide choice of sizes and outputs to suit premises with modest plant room space and medium levels of hot water demand. These are met by combining one of the manufacturer’s Econoplate plate heat exchangers with different sizes of storage vessel. Crucially, the hybrid unit takes up less space than installing a separate Econoplate PHE and could typically cut capital cost by £2K or more.

The BVs (brazed heat exchanger with vessel) supply domestic hot water direct on demand, or by rapidly reheating the stored volume of 300, 500, 800 or 1,000 litres. 

There are five heat output capacities, rising from 56 to 231 kW, with flow rates from 606litres in 10 minutes, up to 1551litres in 10 minutes. The peak output over a one hour period can be a highly impressive 4,851 litres. Based on a primary flow temperature of 80 centigrade, recovery time for the smaller stores can be as little as six minutes.

Locations such as pubs, restaurants and sports pavilions are popular applications for the Econoplate BV Series, thanks to their responsive and high performance, compactness and lower capital cost.
