SOLAR WATER
HEATING SOLUTIONS

Convenience of hot water on demand with the use of solar energy.

Residential and Commercial Water Heating Solutions

Our range of solar water heating solutions can cater to everyone, right from small domestic requirements to large scale industrial requirements. Switching to solar for water heating is one of the best things you can do to minimize your household energy consumption.

Solar water heating stands out as a proven, reliable, simple and eff.ective solution that lowers a total electricity bills through using the sun’s free energy to supply hot water by up to 65% on overall energy savings.

Advantages of Solar Water Heaters

Choice of size

Proper sizing is essential, as homeowners must have enough storage to meet 90 to 100 percent of their hot water needs. Storage volume is also a consideration. A 50- to 60-gallon storage tank is fine for up to three people, an 80-gallon tank for up to four people, and a larger one for as many as six people.

Less space

Solar thermal panels are usually less space-intensive than photovoltaic panels. Fewer are required to heat water than in an array used to produce sufficient power for a home.

High efficiency

About 80 percent of the sun’s radiation is turned into the heat energy needed to obtain hot water at home.

Low maintenance

After installation, little maintenance is required, and a solar water heater can run for up to 20 years.

Instanst Water Heating

Battery storage is well suited for off-grid, especially in remote areas which are virtually limited such as remote mines, communication or industrial sites.
This system will enable your sites to reduce the energy cost per unit, especially if the systems rely on diesel generators.
In addition, battery storage is also suitable in enabling microgrids to provide grid backup or off-grid power to meet local electricity needs.

How Solar Water Heater Works

Solar Water Heating is a simple process. Water is heated by the sun while it goes through a solar panel or collector and then is stored in a tank. The process is repeated over and over and every time higher temperatures are achieved. Differently from an instant boiler, high temperatures are achieved progressively. It’s a slower process and that’s why a storage tank where the water can be kept and sent back to the solar collector to get heated again is necessary.
Solar tanks are obviously insulated to make sure that what’s achieved is maintained in time and energy loss is kept to the minimum. Storages are crucial and need accurate sizing done by professionals.
So, if it’s this simple, why so many types of solar water heating systems are available on the market?
What makes them different are four things:
1. how the water is circulated between the storage tank and the solar collector (natural or forced circulation)
2. how the water is heated in the collector (flat panel, heat pipe or evacuated tubes)
3. how the water is heated in the tank (directly or indirectly | open or closed look loop) pressurised or non pressurised systems.
FEATURES
  • A heavy-duty tank that features a resin insulated totally weatherproof GRP casing, a heavy-duty galvanized cylinder internally piped to optimize hot water availability and magnesium sacrificial anode for cathodic corrosion protection.
  • Solar collectors that incorporate full area copper absorption plates ultrasonically welded to copper circulation tubes, high specification insulation and tempered security glass to provide energy absorption of up to 95%.
  • Low thermal conductivity high specification plastic collector tank connection piping with silver foil coated polystyrene insulation jackets.
  • Connection piping that includes an incoming non-return valve, a thermosyphon diverter valve controlling max water temperature to 60º C to avoid scalding on hot days, pressure release valve, and drain cock.
