Siphon – Recommendation for heat traps of thermal energy storages

The installation of heat traps is state of the art for pipes that are connected to thermal energy storage units but that are not permanently operated, i.e. the fluid in the pipe is not flowing continuously. In this project, the SPF investigates on issues that created uncertainty within the planning and installation community, such as the question of the significance and effect of insulation in the region of the actual heat trap.
