Product Description

Water heating systems

Solar water heaters—also called solar hot water systems—can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your building. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use—sunshine—is free.

Compact Systems Small systems For homes, hotels, offices etc. The tank and solar collectors are integrated.

Low pressure series These are passive systems since they do not use a pump to increase circulation pressure. Water flows through the system when warm water rises as cooler water sinks. The collector must be installed below the
storage tank so that warm water will rise into the tank. They work best in areas where temperatures rarely fall below freezing, and are to be used in applications where water consumption is not very high such as domestic units. Often these systems are installed with an electrical back-up element. Low pressure systems are the most economical. The price is reasonable for the benefits you get, such as free hot water for over 20 years. The payback period is very short, in some cases less than a year.

Pre-heated High pressure series These systems use copper coil as a heat exchanger and work in all applications where water consumption is low to high. Often these systems are installed with an electrical back-up element. In terms of price Pre-heated pressure systems are like a hybrid between low pressure and high pressure systems. The price is reasonable for the benefits you get, such as free hot water for over 20 years. The payback period is very short, many cases less than 2 years.

Split Systems Small systems For homes, hotels, offices etc. The tank is inside the building while solar collectors are on the roof. In a split system solar collectors and water tanks are separate. Collectors are usually mounted on a roof while the tank is inside the building. They look aesthetically sound since the solar collectors are flush on the roof. It is also possible to retrofit solar collectors by connecting them to an existing electric geyser. However one needs a qualified fitter to do this. It is also possible to install multiple collectors and connect to one big tank (for big projects).
