WHAT IS A MIXERGY TANK?
HOT WATER TANKS, RE-INVENTED
THE MIXERGY TANK
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HOT WATER
Heat exactly the amount of water you need, without wasting energy and money heating the entire volume.
Change the target temperature of the water and always know the highest and lowest temperatures within your tank.
Mixergy is able to deliver hot water 5x faster with electric and 2x faster with gas compared to conventional tanks.
Change Heat Source
Heat with a range of conventional and renewable heat sources. Optimise economy 7 off-peak tariffs and solar energy generated.
HOW DO MIXERGY TANKS WORK?
Conventional hot water tanks heat all or nothing irrespective of how much hot water is required. Mixergy’s top-up technology enables you to heat the amount of water you need.
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 heating a smaller portion of water, heat losses are reduced, energy is saved and water is heated faster.
With electric, the system can heat at least 5x faster. For standard indirect systems, the system can heat at least 2.5x faster than conventional.
WHAT MAKES MIXERGY TANKS DIFFERENT?
DELIVERS MORE HOT WATER
As hot water is drawn from the tank (i.e. the hot tap is used), fresh cold water must be introduced from the mains.
Unlike many conventional tanks, the Mixergy tank is designed to reduce mixing as fresh water enters. This allows the tank to better maintain a hot portion of water, rather than the whole volume being diluted. This allows Mixergy to deliver up to 30% more hot water from the same volume conventional tank.
THE BRAIN OF MIXERGY
Mixergy tanks operate on an Internet of Things (IoT) platform. This is an inter-connected network of activity between the tank, the Mixergy cloud server, and the Mixergy App.
This is the “brains” of Mixergy, enabling smart control of your hot water usage and insightful remote diagnostics to be conducted.
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.
