Standard Boilers take the cold water from the tank and heat it in the hot water storage tanks. You can find two types of Standard Boilers: sealed and open vented. The major difference between these types of Standard Boilers is their exposure to the outer atmosphere.
Sealed Standard Boilers are not exposed to the atmosphere. Moreover, they don’t have an expansion and feed tank. Open vented Standard Boilers on the other hand, are exposed to the atmosphere resulting in evaporation of water. Hence, they have a feed and expansion tank.
The water level is maintained by the water tank and the circulation of hot water takes place with a pump.
