★ Notice

  1. Consult or hire professionals in your area for your installation, the lightening arrester should be considered in installation.
  2. The system has to be mounted facing south.
  3. All exposed piping should be insulated properly to prevent heat loss and provide freezing protection. In the areas with ambient temperature under -5℃, electric heating wire can be served as the solution of piping freezing. Switch off the power before operation.
  4. Any modifications on the structures of water heater might lead to problems during service.

◆ The most obvious advantages of Heat pipe solar collector

    • – Can be installed individually or combined with a traditional system;
    • – Withstand pressure;
    • – Can operate with occasional tubes breakage and be replaced easily;
    • – Works well in low-irradiance day with an electric booster
    • – How to avoid cold water and hot water mixing?
    • If the outflow rate is limited within 8L/min, through a lot of testing such phenomenon is not obvious.
    • – How to clean clime after heat pipe has been used for a long time?
    • Carefully remove collector tubes, screw loose the heat pipe, clean the top end with decontamination.
    • – What are the requirements for the piping and connections?
    • Choose good aluminum and plastic compounds whose heat-resistance is over 90°C. And ask local professionals install your purchased solar water heater.
