Water heater tanks, also known as water heaters, are plumbing materials that heat and store water through the use of a coil or heating element. Water heater tanks are divided into three types based on their structure.

  • Single Coil Water Heater Tank: Water heating is facilitated by a single coil.
  • Double Coil Water Heater Tank: Water heating is facilitated by double coils.
  • Electric Water Heater Tank: Water heating is provided by electrical energy.

Selection and Usage Areas of Water Heater Tanks

Water heater tanks are generally used in central hot water preparation systems in areas where people live collectively. Quick boilers with coils are used in communal settlement areas and should not be confused with domestic type water heater tanks. Since domestic water heater tanks are focused on individual use, their volumes and water heating capacities are much lower.

The primary areas where water heater tanks are used for hot water supply are as follows.

  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Shopping Malls
  • Hotels
  • Dormitories
  • Construction Sites
  • Apartment Buildings
  • Housing Complexes
  • Factories
How to Choose a Water Heater Tank?

The most important criterion in selecting a water heater tank is the area of use. The selection of water heater tanks should be made by mechanical engineers based on specific criteria. The selection is done according to the conditions of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers based on the hot water needs of communal residences. The calculated data involve the hourly required amount of water and the opening duration of all water outlets (faucets) is taken into account for 1 hour. In short, the selection of a water heater tank should be made based on the hourly production value and the simultaneous usage factor.
