Masterflow’s Aquazone Buffer Tanks take the load off Chilled water systems

PlaceHolder (2)

Low-quality heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and chilled water systems are well-renowned for breaking down in hot climates, often resulting in expensive system repairs and replacements.

Many commercial and industrial applications/installations have experienced extensive problems with maintaining their HVAC and chilled water systems. Most problems are caused by overcapacity loads or the use of low-quality systems.

Masterflow Solutions, an HVAC specialist in Australia for over 20 years, offers Aquazone buffer tank solution which increases the capacity of chilled water systems, creating extra volume, eliminate excessive chiller cycling, poor temperature control and inconsistent system operation.


High Cost of Low-Quality Systems

According to the industry’s news portal ‘Buildings’, the installation of low-quality chilled water systems can cost a company thousands of dollars in repairs ‒ even more so if the system needs replacement.


Chilled Water Systems in Hot Climates

The summer season places additional stress on chilled water systems, usually requiring them to exceed their capacity. Aquazone Buffer Tanks are well equipped to support the demands of a chilled water under pressure in extremely hot climate.


Enhancing the Capacity of Chilled Water Systems

Masterflow Solutions, an Australian company that specialises in pumps and HVAC systems, offers Aquazone buffer tanks designed for chilled water systems that have insufficient water capacity. Buffer tanks are suitable for conditions where cooling loads are small as it reduces the number of starts, further reducing wear and energy consumption.

According to the Masterflow Mechanical Engineering Division, ‘By integrating a buffer tank to the overall system, it creates extra volume and provides additional “buffer” capacity, eliminating rapid cycling of the chillers and other issues.’

The Aquazone buffers are made to suit specific industry and facility requirements according to the client’s needs. (Could we mention projects or size we have done in past from small to a large application?) Aquazone buffer tanks are also insulated, which helps maintain the temperature of the stored water. The buffers are made of stainless or carbon steel, and the diameter and height can be customised to the client’s specification.
