WHAT IS A MIXERGY TANK?
HOT WATER TANKS, RE-INVENTED
THE MIXERGY TANK
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HOT WATER
Heat What You Want
Conventional hot water tanks heat all or nothing irrespective of hot much hot water is needed. Mixergy tanks allow you to heat exactly how much water you need, without wasting energy and money heating the entire volume.
Choose the Temperature
Set the target temperature that’s right for you. Whether that’s the promise of a steaming bath or a guarantee of water which won’t scold, you’ll know exactly what the highest and lowest temperature in the tank is at any given moment.
The internal arrangement of Mixergy cylinders quickens the reheat time. By heating a smaller portion of the tank, Mixergy is able to deliver hot water 5x faster with electric and 2x faster with gas than conventional tanks.
Choose your Heat Source
Select from a range of conventional and renewable heat sources to heat your water and suit your needs. Optimise economy 7 tariffs during off-peak times, or solar during the sunshine hours of each day.
HOW DO MIXERGY TANKS WORK?
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 carried out by the Mixergy team.
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 runs a periodic fortnightly sterilisation routine to check if the tank has reached a high enough temperature every two weeks in order to prevent the harbouring of bacteria such as legionella.
If the tank does not achieve high enough temperatures through regular usage, the sterilisation system will detect this and will automatically heat the tank as required. 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.
