Flexcon Industries to Feature World’s First Composite Buffer Tank
RANDOLPH, MA – December 18, 2017 – Flexcon Industries will be exhibiting a new line of hot water products at the 2018 AHR Expo, booth 1171 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois from January 22-24, 2018.
Flexcon Industries, the industry leader in steel and composite pre-pressurized diaphragm expansion tanks, will be featuring their new Argosy Buffer Tank and Hot Water Storage Tank this coming January. Using their innovative composite tank technology, Flexcon has developed a line of fully composite hot water tanks that will never corrode and are half the weight of steel tanks. Boasting an R-value higher than the competition, and with ½ a degree of heat loss per hour, these tanks are sure to make you, your customers, and their heating systems happy.
Argosy buffer tanks are perfect for use on geothermal, hydronic, low mass/condensing boiler, and chilled water applications. In order for these systems to achieve maximum efficiency, it is essential to add thermal mass to buffer heating loads and prevent short cycling of system components. Also, this leads to a more simple installation through the creation of hydraulic separation between the heat source and distribution system without the hassle of primary/secondary piping. Argosy buffer tanks come equipped with 4 side ports, a thermal well, boiler drain, vacuum breaker and air vent. Because of their NSF approved inner shell, the entire line of Flexcon hot water tanks are approved to store potable water, which makes the Argosy hot water storage tank a great addition to systems that utilize on-demand water heaters for domestic hot water. Argosy tanks come in sizes ranging from 20 to 119 gallons and are all made in the U.S.A.
Gerry Duggan, E.V.P. of Sales & Marketing remarks that, “Flexcon first introduced its innovative composite technology to the water systems and water treatment markets in 2006 and changed the market perception of composite well tanks. We are very pleased to bring that technology, along with industry best insulation practices into the domestic water, hydronic, chilled water, and geothermal markets.”
In 1989, Flexcon Industries started its journey to become the leading manufacturer of composite and steel pre-pressurized diaphragm expansion tanks for private well systems. With a full line of tanks for well water, thermal expansion, hydronic expansion, heating, water treatment, and constant pressure, Flexcon’s innovation, quality, and consistency has made them the go-to name in the business. Dedicated to the professional channel, Flexcon prides itself on being the sole tank manufacturer that only supports industry professionals.
