Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0940636A2] A boiler (1) of the combined type for heating and for producing sanitary hot water, comprising a primary circuit (7, 8, 9) for a heating fluid, having a delivery branch (7) and a return branch (8) intended for connection to a heating system, and a secondary branch (9) which connects the delivery branch to the return branch. A circulation pump (14) operates along the return branch upstream of a primary heat exchanger (13). A secondary heat exchanger (18) which is inserted in the secondary branch (9) exchanges heat between the heating fluid in the primary circuit and the sanitary water in a secondary circuit (15). A storage vessel (22) for the heating fluid in the primary circuit, which is inserted in said secondary branch (9), is located downstream of the secondary heat exchanger (18). <IMAGE>
