What You Need to Know about the Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus Unvented Cylinder

27 Apr 2021
Considering your options when it comes to unvented cylinders? You have many different choices on the market, from some of the top brands in the industry. One that you might want to give extra consideration to is the Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus unvented cylinder. What does this option bring that makes it stand out from others? We’ll explore the cylinder below to help you make an informed decision.

Direct and Indirect Heating

What this means is that depending on the model you choose, it takes heat generated from your gas or electric boiler or from immersion heaters. It also requires less maintenance in the long run. With indirect models the coil-in-coil heat exchanger helps to maximise heat retention and performance, too.

Space Requirements

At first glance, you’ll notice something different about the Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus. There is no expansion vessel at the top. In most unvented cylinders, an expansion vessel is needed for the outflow of heated (expanded) water. Because water cannot be compressed, it needs additional space when it expands due to heat.

However, expansion vessels require additional space in the installation area, and the actual install takes more time, too. With this unvented cylinder, there is a built-in thermal expansion space inside the unit. This eliminates the need for an exterior thermal expansion vessel, reducing installation footprint and time.

Also, it allows the cylinder to deliver more hot water. In total, you’ll see up to 14% more hot water than with a conventional cylinder that requires an external expansion vessel.

Mains Pressure

If you’re changing to an unvented cylinder from a vented cylinder, one of the most important benefits is the ability to enjoy full-pressure showers. The Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus unvented cylinder delivers mains pressure at all your taps and showerheads, ensuring that you have an exhilarating experience.

Capable of Handling Large Loads

With some unvented cylinders, you get a low flow rate because of the width of the outflow piping. This can cause problems in larger homes with multiple bathrooms. You get less pressure in the shower, slow-filling tubs and sinks, and generally a lacklustre experience. With the Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus unvented cylinder, that’s not an issue. It delivers a high flow rate, which is well-suited to larger homes and bigger families, so even if two people are bathing at the same time, you won’t have to worry about a dramatic loss of pressure.

As you can see, the Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel Plus unvented cylinder delivers some pretty impressive benefits. Those are capped with a 25-year guarantee for peace of mind and durability.
