Tanks & Jackets

A hot water storage tank (also called a hot water tank, thermal storage tank, hot water thermal storage unit, heat storage tank and hot water cylinder) is a water tank used for storing hot water for future use.

Tank jackets are exactly what they say they are; a form of jacket that covers the tank, also known as a jacketed vessel, like a coffee cup sleeve or a double walled flask. They wrap around the container creating a second layer to regulate the temperature of the contents inside. In the same way a jacketed tank is designed to keep the contents hot or cold through its ‘jacket’ enclosure.

At Direct Heating Supplies we stock a large selection of tanks and jackets form leading brands, so you are bound to find one perfect for your personal heating needs.
