Twin wall cylinders

The twin wall stainless steel cylinders from AIC feature many advantages over traditional domestic hot water storage tanks. The twin wall concept represented in SILOX cylinders is a combination of two tanks, one inside the other. The production of domestic hot water occurs when the heat from the outer primary cylinder is transferred to the inner DHW cylinder, utilising the full surface area for superior heat transfer and reheat time.

Product design

Internal tank with corrugated geometry which maximises the effects of contraction and expansion of the walls limiting the formation of limescale on the large exchange surface. Cylinder for the transfer and store of domestic hot water with high thermal heat exchange area in AISI 316L stainless steel.

Silox models from 180 to 600 have four opposite connections on the primary side to allow power to be supplied from multiple heat sources (boiler, heat pump, biomass, etc.).


Additional Features

Silox cylinders are equipped with a DHW inspection port as standard to facilitate inspection and maintenance.

Integrated control panel, complete with on-off switch, control thermostat, thermometer, and operating indicators.

Light grey external coating in PVC laminated on polyester with anti UV fading properties.

All models have a connection for an optional electric back up heater up to 12kW.
