Hydronic buffer tanks are used as both hydraulic separators and hydronic buffer tanks.

As a hydraulic separator, buffer tanks will separate the hydronic portion from the energy source loop (heat pump/boiler) from the hydronic flow in the distribution system (air handlers/emitters). Hydraulic separation is mostly used in systems that have a varying distribution for flow rates and utilize variable speed pumps. Therefore, the heating or cooling source can be hydraulically separated from the distribution system.

Buffer tanks are used as hydronic buffer tanks in systems that have low BTU cooling or heating loads calling at different times or systems operating below the design load condition.
