Duplex stainless steel - the only option
Its strength
is in its detail...
Duplex stainless steel, for so long reserved for the intense
demands of chemical plants, forms the heart of every Tribune
HE unit. Duplex offers superior corrosion resistance over
copper, glass-lined steel and other lesser grades of stainless
steel, particularly in aggressive water areas.
2
3
Duplex stainless steel is a special combination of Austenitic
and Ferritic stainless steels. Its low-carbon, high-chromium
composition is allied to careful design and state-of-the-art TIG
welding equipment in our multi-million pound factory.
8
As a result Tribune HE is resistant to all forms of corrosion
including crevice-corrosion, pitting-corrosion, uniformcorrosion and stress-corrosion cracking. Tribune’s superior
corrosion resistance is achieved without an anode and its
associated maintenance worries.
4
Duplex stainless steel has a superior strength-to-weight ratio
compared to copper or glass-lined steel. The Tribune HE has
higher pressure ratings than copper whilst typically weighing
less than half that of an equivalent glass-lined steel unit.
7
Duplex Stainless and The Environment
6
Duplex stainless steel is extremely environmentally friendly. As a
material it is 100% recyclable. In fact over 90% of new stainless
steel comes from old re-melted stainless steel. Stainless steel will
go on to complete full life cycles indefinitely.

Cold Water Inlet Control Set
Environmentally Friendly Insulation
The inlet control set on every Tribune HE unit is of a well-proven
‘high-flow’ design, allowing flows in excess of 50ltr/min (where
local conditions permit).
As you would expect, the Tribune HE is very well insulated.
A class leading 50mm thick insulation layer surrounds the
cylinder. Coupled with the close-fitting case, Tribune HE’s
heat loss is low. Heat loss figures meet CHeSS Best Practice
guidelines for insulation. The insulation is CFC-Free, HCFCFree and contains no ozone depleting chemicals with an ODP
of Zero and GWP of One.
The set combines a pressure reducing valve, complete with
strainer, non-return valve and expansion relief valve with
provision for expansion vessel and balanced cold connections.
The operating pressure is 3 bar, but the valve will continue to
give good performance down to an inlet pressure of 1 bar.
Coil-in-Coil Heat Exchanger
With its large surface area you are assured of fast reheats. The
smaller sizes of Tribune HE Indirect Units exceed the CHeSS
Best Practice guidelines.
Either coil connection can be used as the inlet. Reheat
performance is equally good either way.
In reaching right down to the bottom of the cylinder, the coil-incoil heats the Tribune HE’s entire capacity. A sophisticated cold
water baffle helps preserve the stratification and prevent mixing
during draw-off. As a result, a 150 litre Tribune HE produces
150 litres of hot water - as simple as that!
6
External Expansion Vessel - Flexible and Reliable
We have chosen to use an external expansion vessel for our
Tribune HE. With no air bubble to lose, it promises improved
reliability. Add flexible siting and reduced overall cylinder height
and you have a winning combination.
Comprehensive kit of parts with every unit
We’ve not cut corners in our kit of parts. You get all the
components you need to complete the installation - just add
pipework and fittings. This attention to detail means no lost
time making a trip to the merchants and no hidden costs
involved when you buy a Tribune HE.

supplying 2 bathrooms
Example illustration
A school swimming pool has 5 showers in each of two
changing rooms. The shower heads are flow-restricted to
9 ltrs per minute (2/3 rds of this will be hot water). Usually there
are 3 one hour lessons each morning and three each afternoon.
Assuming a class size of 30 children.
Maximum demand = 10 shower heads x 9 litres / min = 90 litres
/ min. This is more than one Tribune HE can supply.
At least two Tribune HEs will be needed to provide this (see flow
rates graph) Total demand = 30 children x 6 litres / minute x 5
minute shower each = 900 litres
3 x 300 litre units will be required
Reheat time has to be a maximum of one hour so it is reheated
in time for the next lesson. A TI300 can reheat its entire contents
in 60 minutes with a boiler power of 15 kW. So total boiler power
required = 45 kW. If direct units were used they would have to be
fitted with immersion heaters rated at 15 kW
(typically 1 x 9 kW + 1 x 6 kW).
Using Tribune HE units in parallel
For applications where very high flow rate or larger
amounts of storage are required, two or more Tribune HE
units can be linked in parallel.
When linking two cylinders, a separate cold feed is taken
to each one and the outlets are joined together. The
flow rate available doubles (subject to the cold main).
The demand for hot water will vary considerably between
types of buildings and the activities taking place there.
For Example:
An office building will require small quantities frequently to
many outlets during normal & overtime office hours.
A factory production line will have a peak demand at the
breaks in the shift or at the end when the work force may
all want to wash their hands simultaneously.
A Sports Pavilion will need to be able to provide large
quantities of hot water for the teams’ showering needs
over a short period of time after the game.
So your selection must take into account a number
of things:
1.
The maximum simultaneous hot water demand.
2.
The total hot water demand required.
3.
The required system reheat time.
Applications using
Tribune HE Solar units
(Also suitable for other renewable
energy sources)
Tribune HE Indirect Solar units can be used in various ways:
1. To couple two different boilers up to the Tribune HE
2. For systems with solar heating. Solar heat is fed in
via the lower coil.
3. Heat pump
4. Bio-mass
5. Micro-CHP
IMPORTANT NOTE
It is a requirement of building regulations that any heat
sources connected to an unvented cylinder (such as
Tribune HE) are under full thermostatic control and are
able to turn themselves COMPLETELY off.
As a result you cannot connect an Aga (or equivalent)
or a solid fuel stove to a Tribune HE.
9
Installation
Regulations
All unvented units with a capacity over 15ltr must be installed by a
competent installer in accordance with the following Regulations:
England and Wales – Building Regulation G3
Scotland – Building Regulation P5
N Ireland – Building Regulation P5
Siting
With no header tanks to consider, Tribune HE units can be sited almost
anywhere in the house. Tribune HE can supply outlets both above and
below its location. Tribune HE must be fixed VERTICALLY on a flat
surface capable of holding its (full) weight.
Water Supply
An adequate mains water supply is vital to ensure Tribune HE
produces the high performance of which it is capable. We recommend
a minimum supply of 1.0 bar with a flow rate of 25 litres/min. The
maximum supply pressure is 16 bar.
Compatible Boilers
Gas, electric or oil fired boilers fitted with an integral control thermostat
and cut-out. Any heat source that lacks full thermostatic control such as
most solid fuel boilers, Agas, Rayburns and Stanleys cannot normally
be connected to any unvented system.
The Primary circuit may be Open Vented or Sealed (operating
at up to 7 bar). The primary circuit must be pumped.
Connection Sizes
Cold Inlet - 22mm compression.
Hot Outlet - 22mm compression.
Coil connections - 22mm compression.
Safety Valves - 15mm compression outlet.
Inlet Control Set - 22mm compression inlet and outlet.
Tundish - 15mm compression inlet / 22mm compression outlet.
Secondary Return
A dedicated 22mm secondary return connection is fitted to 210, 250
and 300 litre sizes. A swept tee (not supplied) could be used to provide
a secondary return on the smaller sizes.
Electrical Wiring
Controls should be wired to the boiler / programmer etc. in accordance
with the control scheme being used. Although compatible with Y, W or
S Plan layouts, Tribune HE units are perhaps best suited to installation
as an S Plan since we already supply one of the two port valves
necessary, so reducing installation costs compared to other plans.
Each immersion heater must have a permanent connection via a double
pole-linked isolating switch with a minimum rating of 13 amps.
All electrical wiring must comply with the latest IEE wiring regulations.

Range Tribune HE Slimline
Unvented Direct and Indirect Cylinders
Thanks to the new Tribune HE Slimline from Range
Cylinders, many older homes, despite their original design
limitations, can now enjoy the benefits of having an
unvented cylinder, which are typically around 550mm in
diameter. The new family of Tribune HE Slimline cylinders
have a nominal diameter of only 478mm and come in a
range of sizes from 60 litres to 210 litres in both Indirect
and Direct versions. This reduced cylinder diameter
means that houses that previously could not enjoy mains
pressure hot water (and balanced cold) can now enjoy
the benefits of modern style showers, aerated mixer taps
etc. for the first time. All the endurance and performance
characteristics that have made Tribune HE a market
favourite - now available in Slimline. Now that fits the bill.

Range Tribune HE Solar
Unvented Direct and Indirect Cylinders
Range Tribune HE Solar cylinders have been
designed specifically with Solar applications in
mind and are based on the highly successful
Range Tribune unvented units. Featuring a
purpose designed solar coil which allows
maximum heat transfer of solar energy into
the stored water, the cylinders are suitable for
use with a wide range of solar systems now
available in the UK and are an efficient and
environmentally friendly way of providing
domestic hot water.
Tribune HE Solar cylinders also offer the
benefit of mains pressure hot water – powerful
showers and fast filling baths. Range Tribune
HE Solar cylinders are available in a range of
sizes from 180 to 300 litres and in Direct or
Indirect versions.
As with the rest of the Range Tribune HE
family, Tribune HE Solar cylinders are
manufactured from high grade Duplex
stainless steel and come with a 25-year fully
transferable Guarantee on the inner container.

Range Solar Cylinders are designed to accept heat input from a renewable/sustainable (ie: Solar) heat source.
Where this input does not fully meet the desired temperature, a guaranteed quantity of water can be heated to an acceptable
temperature by the householders’ traditional heat source of gas, oil or electricity.
The Domestic Heating Compliance Guide document L1A and L1B provides excellent advice in sizing both cylinder designated solar areas
and heat exchangers to the surface area of the solar collectors. Using this guide Range are able to offer sizing advice for specification.

Products List
Kingspan offer a complete range of renewable energy and related products for both domestic and commercial applications. Our complete solar
package solutions include initial advice, professional design specifications and technical assistance through to a network of fully trained Kingspan Solar
Accredited Installers who are kept up-to-date with the latest regulations and available grants.
Our range of products consists of:
Range Cylinders manufacture open vented copper cylinders in over 400
different sizes, types and styles. They are designed to heat up quickly and
to retain their heat for long periods, offering a good economical system for
domestic applications.
Range of products includes Solarmax - a double feed indirect twin coil
cylinder for use with solar collectors. Bottom coil is designed to accept input
from a renewable heat source. When this input is not sufficient, the water can
be heated by traditional gas, oil or electric boiler.
Albion Aerocyl is the new range of copper unvented hot water cylinders and
buffer tanks. The cylinders have been designed specifically to be installed in
conjunction with a heat pump only or a solar thermal system and additional
input from a heat pump. Manufactured from high grade copper, Aerocyl
unvented cylinders feature energy efficient, CFC and HCFC-free foam
insulation for low standing heat loss and are environmentally friendly way of
providing Domestic Hot Water.
Aerocyl buffer tank is integrated into the space heating system when
additional volume of hot water is required to provide smooth and
uninterrupted operation of a heat pump and prevent the radiators or
underfloor heating from cooling during the heat pump defrost cycle. They are
available for both open vented and sealed systems in a range of capacities to
suit different size heat pumps available in the UK.
Albion Water Heaters and Manchester Calorifiers design and manufacture
a large range of open vented and unvented calorifiers for commercial and
industrial use in copper, stainless steel and mild steel. They also offer marine
calorifiers and hot water provision for light commercial vehicles. All products
feature high quality, durability and exceptional performance.
For maximum efficiency, units can be custom-designed for each specific
application. A renewable heat source, e.g. solar panels, can also be
incorporated into the system and sized to meet the heating and hot water
requirements of the property.
26
