Unvented Cylinders / Megaflow
Megaflo is a brand of Unvented Cylinder, manufactured by Heatrae Sadia. They are constructed from duplex stainless steel and offers superior resistance to corrosion, especially in aggressive water areas. Every unit is pressure tested in the factory to 15 bar – five times the normal operating pressure – making Megaflo eco suitable for all domestic and commercial applications.
Megaflo offers very fast heat recovery times and deliver superb flow rates of up to 72 litres per minute, making it ideally suited to a wide variety of applications.
The cylinders are insulated with a 60mm thick void-free layer of high-performance polyurethane foam. This fills the space between the inner vessel and outer casing for maximum insulation efficiency and compliancy with future European-wide legislation.
