- Distance from floor (set in storey data)
- Type from a catalogue
- For the Fittings not from catalogue choose the Orientation, Connection diam. and enter the values of Water capacity and dimensions.
Respect the proper orientation - the element has "heat source side" and "terminals side".
Connecting the component
- After all system components have been placed on the drawing, the Buffer tank should be connected to the source on one side (primary circuit) and to the system on the other side (secondary circuit). Connection to the Buffer tank is made by using Supply and Return pipelines.
- A Pump must be installed on the secondary side.
After running calculations the information on the type of the Buffer tank and the Pump can be found in the Results window.
