Buffer cylinders for heating water

SPU-2 & SPU-2-W

The WOLF SPU-2 heating water storage cylinder is the perfect reservoir for storing hot heating water produced by your heat generator either in detached houses or apartment buildings. The buffer cylinder has high-quality thermal insulation which also helps you save energy. 

With or without solar central heating backup

  • SPU-2

    The simple design of the WOLF SPU-2 offers excellent value for money without compromising on good storage properties.

    Available in the versions SPU-2-500, SPU-2-800, SPU-2-1000 and SPU-2-1500 with cylinder sizes from 500 to 1500 litres, it covers a wide range of applications from detached houses to apartment buildings.

  • SPU-2-W

    The SPU-2-W solar water cylinder is available as an alternative. This cylinder is equipped with an additional solar heat exchanger for connecting to a solar thermal technology system. The solar buffer cylinders SPU-2-W-500, SPU-2-W-800, SPU-2-W-1000 and SPU-2-W-1500 are also available with cylinder volumes from 500 to 1500 litres.

Benefits of WOLF buffer cylinders

WOLF Storage tank SPU-2

Buffer cylinders boost efficiency

Fewer burner starts

The SPU-2 and SPU-2-W buffer cylinders improve the efficiency of your heating system. Thanks to the buffer effect, your heating does not need to start up as often. This saves energy and cuts the cost of heating.

No oversized elements

A heating system with a WOLF buffer cylinder can bridge times when the house needs extra heating, such as during freezing cold winter nights. This means that there is no need to install an oversized and inefficient heat generator to cope with these rare occasions. And you do not have to compromise on comfort. Read more
