About the CompanyCopper Industries design and manufacture a range of standard and bespoke hot water cylinders, calorifiers and combination units. The range includes both domestic and industrial cylinders which are installed throughout Ireland and the UK. The FUSION project will undertake the design, development and testing of a prototype for an electrically heated cylinder with a built in control system. The design stage will involve multiple tasks such as material selection, energy calculations, controls and selection of suitable manufacturing processes. This product will be aimed at new and retro fit installations particularly where OFCH is not suitable due to flues etc. The product will heat the water via means of an electrical element and provide a clean and cost effective hot water source in large urban areas.
