As they are isolated from the pressure that is naturally in the atmosphere, a closed water system is designed to maintain an internal process as it carries out its function. The temperature changes involved with heating and cooling water alter this internal pressure and can cause damage to the system if an expansion vessel is not installed.
Changes in both temperature and pressure alter the flow of water and can even stop it entirely. These alterations are referred to as water hammers and have been shown to negatively impact upon the delicate components of the system, leading to damage and reduced function over time. An expansion vessel is designed to prevent the problem with the simple use of air to cushion the system from impacts caused by water hammers.
The air within an expansion vessel absorbs pressure extremely effectively and delivers continued protection was the quick and easy installation process is professionally carried out. The technology is ubiquitous, found everywhere from these closed water systems to car engines and industry machinery.
