Flexcon Industries Expansion Tanks from N.H. Yates

Water heaters can stress the pipes of a plumbing system during the normal thermal expansion that occurs during the heating process. Therefore, many engineers choose to install expansion tanks, sometimes called thermal expansion tanks, as a safety to minimize the risk of pressure damage to the plumbing system. It’s estimated that 50 gallons of cold water in a standard water heater can expand to take up the space of 52 gallons when heated to 120F. This extra water can create excess pressure in the plumbing system which over time can cause damage to the water heater, plumbing fixtures, and the water pipes themselves. At N.H. Yates, we are proud to be manufacturers representatives for the entire line of Flexcon Industries Expansion Tanks and have seen their product successfully utilized in many commercial and residential applications.
