When we first saw Zilmet’s flat expansion tanks, we saw an opportunity. An opportunity to improve our customers’ hydronic installation experiences and an opportunity for them to give their customers a cleaner, sharper installation. It seems like we were right because our first year of stocking Zilmet models was a resounding success. So much so that we’re expanding our line to include Zilmet’s latest: a 6.3-gallon model.
The ZFT24R (Able Part Number: A40-FLAT-60) features everything you love about Zilmet’s other models in a slightly larger package. It’s easy to install, easy to access for servicing, and works in a multitude of applications. Like the smaller models, the FLAT-60 includes mounting hardware and union connections with a dual service check valve.
It features a capacity of 6.3 gallons, 1.5 gallons more than the FLAT-30. Zilmet managed to accommodate the extra capacity without compromising the unit’s footprint. The FLAT-60 is only 0.8″ taller than the FLAT-30 and it has the same length and width.
If you typically use Amtrol EX-60 tanks for your larger hydronic jobs, you can switch in the FLAT-60 without worry; it’s a drop-in replacement for those models. Zilmet’s flat expansion tanks feature the versatility necessary to tackle almost any hydronic applications regardless of whether you’re using copper or cast iron. The FLAT-60 also works great in radiant heating applications.
Below is a table highlighting the applications and boiler outputs at which the FLAT-60 excels as well as a download link for Zilmet’s updated flat expansion tank literature. The FLAT-60 is available for order at all Able branches.
