Solar Water Heating System
Energy efficiency is becoming a more and more common word when talking about domestic hot water production and delivery. The growing concern for the future of the environment we are living in, and the desire to leave a green and healthy world to future generations is creating a shift in the demand from traditional technology towards high-efficiency and renewable products. A solar water heater is a solar thermal system that heats water using the sun’s radiation. It consists of two parts: A storage tank where the water is accumulated and solar collectors which absorb the sun’s radiation. Solar heating systems can be categorized into Natural (Thermosiphon) and Forced Circulation Systems.
Natural Circulation Systems: Most commonly used with solar collectors and storage tank together, use the thermosiphon principle. These are usually available in capacities of 150, 200 and 300 litres. Multiple systems can act together to cater to central water heating requirements.
Forced Circulation Systems :mostly used for Industrial & Commercial applications. Solar Collectors and Storage Tanks are split with pumps (and accessories) with the aid of an intelligent solar controller, which operates the system effectively. The standard capacities for these systems are available from 200 up to 5000 litres and even to 10000 litres storage as a single system. Larger capacities are also possible with multiple configurations of the units.
