We offer a wide range of systems:
- Roof mounted systems, where the tank and collector are visible on the roof. Ths system has the least amount of moving parts and functions on the principle of Thermosyphoning (explained below)
- Split Thermosyphoning systems, where the collector is visible on the roof and the tank is placed up higher inside the roof.
- Split systems, where the tank and pump are inside the roof, and the collector is visible on the roof.
How a Thermosyphon system works:
Thermosyphon systems are complete on-roof hot water systems, in which the storage tanks and solar collectors are mounted on the roof as a unit. Thanks to the sophisticated functional principle of the Thermosyphon, drinking water can be heated very economically and efficiently.
The cold and hot water supply lines are connected to the domestic water system. Due to the solar irradiation and differences in the specific weight of cold and hot water, the heated water rises to the top of the collector where it flows into the storage tank and displaces the cold water in the storage tank, which in turn flows into the collector and is heated there.
The heated water then flows into the hot water lines and can be used directly for cooking, washing or showering. If the sun does not shine for several days or the water consumption rate is abnormally high, the system is fitted with a timer, which will automatically activate the element if the thermostat reading drops below a certain pre-set level.
The Solsquare TS closed circuit systems are suitable for single and multiple installations. They perform well in all water quality areas and are especially designed to withstand extreme weather conditions including frost and prolonged heat. A special solar fluid, foodgrade glycol mixture, prevents the collector from freezing.
Quality design & stylish appearance
No moving parts – low maintenance
Electric boosting with all systems
Flat and pitched roof mounting systems available
Certified – Australian Standard 2712 and SABS tested and passed systems
The split system tank is manufactured locally, and carries the SABS Mark of Approval. The system is available with either a flat plate collector, as shown above, or with evacuated tubes collector and with either an electric or a photovoltaic pump. The pumps are required to move the glycol fluid through the collector back to the tank.
