Mixergy’s New Thermo-Syphon Top-up Tank by Pete Armstrong | Aug 17, 2020 |
Over the past four years, we have been working hard to understand the physics of thermal stratification so that we can optimise the design of the Mixergy tank. This latest product has involved intensive simulation with Formula 1 engineers at Williams Advanced Engineering alongside the development of a novel phase actuation device. By adapting a French style tank, where the heating element is inserted into the bottom of the cylinder, we are now able to achieve the most responsive and precise top-up control possible using nothing more than natural convection. The following video gives a breakdown of how we achieve this feat:
We have now completed the equivalent of 10 years of accelerated testing of the system and the arrangement comes with all the benefits associated with connectivity to the Mixergy platform which includes:
1. Visibility of the tank’s state of charge and granular control through the Mixergy app
2. Machine learning capability to optimise the schedule against your electricity tariff
