A Solar Water Heater is a device which provides hot water for residential, commercial & industrial purpose using solar energy. It is generally installed at the terrace or where sunlight is available and heats water during day time which is stored in an insulated storage tank for use when required.
The water can be heated to any desired temperature above normal temperature but cannot exceed the boiling point temperature (100° C).
Silent Features of our Solar Water Heater :
- Economical, Eco Friendly
- Easy to Install and Maintain
- Less space & More Stable and Reliable
- Longer Life Span 5-10 years
- Return on Investment Within 2 Years
Evacuated tube collector
Evacuated tube collectors are the most efficient collectors available. Each evacuated tube is similar to a thermos in principle. A glass or metal tube containing the water or heat transfer fluid is surrounded by a larger glass tube. The space between them is a vaccum, so very little heat is lost from the fluid.
These collectors can even work well in overcast conditions and operate in temperatures as low as -40°F. Individual tubes are replaced as needed. Evacuated tube collectors can cost twice as much per square foot as flat plate collectors
Passive systems require no pumps. Natural convection moves water from the collectors to the storage tank as it heats up.
Flate plate collector
Flat-plate collectors typically consist of copper tubes fitted to flat absorber plates. The most common configuration is a series of parallel tubes connected at each end by two pipes, the inlet and outlet manifolds. The flat plate assembly is contained within an insulated box, and covered with tempered glass.
Flat plate collectors are typically sized to contain 40 gallons of water. Two collectors provide roughly half of the hot water needed to serve a family of four.
There are two types of system in Flat Plate collector:
Direct systems circulate water through solar collectors where it is heated by the sun. The heated water is then stored in a tank, sent to a tankless water heater, or used directly. These systems are preferable in climates where it rarely freezes. Freeze protection is necessary in cold climates.
Closed-loop, or indirect, systems use a non-freezing liquid to transfer heat from the sun to water in a storage tank. The sun’s thermal energy heats the fluid in the solar collectors. Then, this fluid passes through a heat exchanger in the storage tank, transferring the heat to the water. The non-freezing fluid then cycles back to the collectors. These systems make sense in freezing climates.
