WHAT IS A MIXERGY TANK?
HOT WATER TANKS, RE-INVENTED
THE MIXERGY TANK
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HOT WATER
Only heat what you need and save 5-20% on hot water bills through energy savings.
WHATS DIFFERENT ABOUT MIXERGY?
HOW DO MIXERGY TANKS WORK?
Conventional hot water tanks heat all or nothing irrespective of how much hot water is required by the user. This can waste energy heating water that isn’t required and can result in unnecessarily long heating times.
The Mixergy tank differs to conventional tanks in three fundamental ways:
- Novel top-up technology enables you to selectively heat by volume, rather than time
- Temperature sensors make sterilisation cycles and hot water volumes measurable
- Internet connectivity and the Mixergy App provides smart remote control
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: TOP-UP TECHNOLOGY
SAVE 5-20% ON HOT WATER BILLS
Mixergy’s top-up technology exploits thermal stratification (water rising when it heats) to ‘float’ hot water on top of cold to enable users to selectively heat different volumes of water. When the tank charges (heats), it increases the portion of water which is heated from the top down, rather than trying to heat the entire volume at once, as conventional cylinders do.
By only heating what you need you can save 5-20% on hot water bills through energy savings.
HOT WATER READY 5X FASTER
Top-up technology also enables Mixergy to deliver usable hot water up to 5x faster for direct electric tanks, and up to 2x faster for indirect gas tanks. By heating smaller volumes of water as you need it, hot water is ready faster.
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: NOVEL DIFFUSERS
DELIVERS 30% MORE HOT WATER
As hot water is drawn from a cylinder (i.e. the hot tap is used), fresh cold water is introduced from the mains. While in conventional cylinders this would dilute the temperature of water, the Mixergy tank utilises novel inlet diffusers to reduce mixing of the cold water as it enters the tank.
This allows the tank to better maintain a separation between hot and cold portions of water and deliver up to 30% more usable hot water from the same volume conventional tank in comparison (National Physical Laboratory accredited).
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
SMART HOT WATER CONTROL
Mixergy tanks operate on an Internet of Things (IoT) platform. This is an inter-connected network of activity between the Mixergy tank, the Mixergy “brain” (i.e. electronics controller), and the Mixergy App. This connectivity helps to set Mixergy apart from other cylinders on the market and provide customers with intelligent control over their tanks.
With Mixergy you have complete control over water temperature, heat sources, sophisticated scheduling options, and access to remote diagnostics support. You also receive automated data insight into your energy usage, and reports of how much you’ve spent on your current energy tariff.
Machine learning is increasingly becoming an integral part of day-to-day technology, improving how systems work based on prior experience.
Mixergy’s automatic heating control feature uses machine learning to learn and predict at what times of day the user will need hot water and will automatically adjust the schedule as required.
This helps the user to optimise their energy use and cost of heating water and will heat in the cheapest possible way for the user’s specific utility tariff, whether it’s a fixed-rate, economy 7 or smart tariffs.
The Mixergy tank monitors and controls the hot water environment to prevent unhygienic conditions. As a minimum, the Mixergy tank runs a periodic fortnightly sterilisation routine to ensure water is clean and hygienic.
Corrective action is automatically taken to ensure water is heated to a high enough temperature to prevent the harbouring of bacteria such as legionella.
This is unlike conventional tanks, which often fail to achieve sterilising temperatures due to their internal design and do not have any form of sterilisation check.
