Boilermate

Boilermate II

Description Round silver metal jacket with small silver cistern on top.
Models FE120, FE140, FE180, FE200, FE220

The Boilermate II is a thermal store in the true sense of the word, it stores energy for producing domestic hot water and it stores energy used by the space heating. For the system to work efficently the Boilermate has to be in control of the system. It has a control to lower the stored temperature in summer and the domestic hot water temperature can be controlled by a thermostatic valve on the hot water outlet .

Boilermate II has a simple system of producing hot water. Cold water is passed through a high efficiency coil immersed in the thermal store and is heated. If there is no hot water at the taps and the cylinder is hot there is a problem that needs a call from an engineer.

If the problem is with the cylinder not being heated make sure the boiler is switched on and its thermostat is set to maximum. The time clock is for operation of the heating system only not the boiler.

The cistern should be automatically topped up by a float valve but these can stick. The water level should be at least to the swaged line around the center of the cistern, make sure to put the white plug back to stop excessive evaporation.

Boilermate III

Description Round silver metal jacket with small silver cistern on top.
Models BM120, BM140, BM180, BM200, BM220

The Boilermate III is a thermal store in the true sense of the word, it stores energy for producing domestic hot water and it stores energy used by the space heating. For the system to work efficently the Boilermate has to be in control of the system. It has no user controls for stored temperature.

The Boilermate III appliance was the first appliance to take the hot water heat exchanger out of the thermal store. This was very beneficial in hard water areas but did make hot water production more complicated. The heating of the cylinder is usually done by an external gas or oil boiler. The domestic hot water delivery is achieved by a control system that pumps the water from the cylinder through an external heat exchanger, the temperature at the tap is factory set and cannot be adjusted.

If there is no hot water at the taps, the cylinder is hot and the cistern is topped up there is a problem that needs a call from an engineer.

If the problem is with the cylinder not being heated make sure the boiler is switched on and its thermostat is set to maximum. The time clock is for operation of the heating system only not the boiler.

The cistern should be automatically topped up by a float valve but these can stick. The water level should be at least to the swaged line around the center of the cistern, make sure to put the white plug back to stop excessive evaporation.

Boilermate 2000

Description Square grey appliance with plastic cistern on top.
Models BM125, BM145, BM185, BM210, BM225

The Boilermate 2000 again is a thermal store in the true sense of the word, it stores energy for producing domestic hot water and it stores energy used by the space heating. For the system to work efficently the Boilermate has to be in control of the system. It has no user controls for stored temperature.

It also requires two operations to produce hot water, the heating of the cylinder is usually done by an external gas or oil boiler. The domestic hot water delivery is acheived by a control system that pumps the water from the cylinder through an external heat exchanger, the temperature at the tap is factory set and cannot be adjusted.

Some builders opted for the Boilermate with the electric back-up option, this can be useful if the main boiler fails and gives a crude form of heating and hot water. To identify if your appliance has SWITCH back-up fitted there will be a silver control knob on the top left-hand side of the Boilermate if fitted. This is only a very simple (switch on/switch off) control, time clock and roomstat will not work so this should be used with care in an emergency only.

If there is no hot water at the taps, the cylinder is hot and the cistern is topped up there is a problem that needs a call from an engineer.If switch is fitted try turning on to switch until an engineer can call.

If the problem is with the cylinder not being heated make sure the boiler is switched on and its thermostat is set to maximum. The time clock is for operation of the heating system only not the boiler.

The cistern should be automatically topped up by a float valve but these can stick. The water level should be around the center of the cistern, make sure to put the lid back to stop excessive evaporation.

Boilermate A Class

Description Square grey appliance with built in boost button, plastic cistern on top.
Models BM125 OV, BM145 OV, BM185 OV, BM215 OV, BM225 OV

The Boilermate A Class again is a thermal store in the true sense of the word, it stores energy for producing domestic hot water and it stores energy used by the space heating. For the system to work efficently the Boilermate has to be in control of the system.

It also requires two operations to produce hot water, the heating of the cylinder is usually done by an external gas or oil boiler. The domestic hot water delivery is acheived by a control system that pumps the water from the cylinder through an external heat exchanger, the temperature at the tap is factory set and cannot be adjusted.

All Boilermate A Class are supplied with the electric back-up option, this can be useful if the main boiler fails and gives a limited form of heating and hot water. There is a black rocker switch on the top right hand side of the appliance, normal operation or ‘Switch’.  Turn the rocker switch to Switch and the controls will operate the same way as when using the main boiler. The Boilermate front panel also has a time clock

If there is no hot water at the taps, the cylinder is hot and the cistern is topped up there is a problem that needs a call from an engineer. Try turning on to switch until an engineer can call.

If the problem is with the store not being heated make sure the boiler is switched on and its thermostat is set to maximum. The time clock is for operation of the heating and hot water in combination with the two rocker switches. If in doubt put both rockers to the constant position.

The cistern should be automatically topped up by a float valve but these can stick. The water level should be around the center of the cistern, make sure to put the lid back to stop excessive evaporation.
