Solar Ark Evacuated Solar 20 / 30 Tube Kits for Wood Fired Systems
These kits come with 20/30 evacuated tubes, manifold and mounting brackets with controller and pump.
Evacuated Tube Solar - Smart Move
WiseLiving Evacuated Tube Solar systems offer high quality and enhanced performance systems with a 15 year warranty on the collector, the longest in Australia.
Hot water accounts for about 40% of energy requirements in the average Australian house. Installing our Evacuated Tube system can reduce those energy costs by up to 90% whilst reducing your carbon footprint.
How It Works
Sunlight passes through the glass outer layer of the tube and onto the specially coated inner glass layer . The two glass layers are separated by a vacuum The heat is then trapped within the tube. The heat is transferred to the Heat Exchanger via aluminium fin and high performance copper heat pipe . The copper heat pipe contained within the evacuated tube contains a small amount of liquid which travels up the tube to the bulb where it condenses and falls back to the base of the tube .
Water is passed through the manifold and across the heat tube bulbs by way of an energy efficient pump that is actuated by an electronic controller, ensuring that the pump only runs when necessary. The hot water produced is then returned to the tank
Solar Tubes are cylindrical in shape which track the sun for longer periods of the day, and at all times of the year and are well suited for frost prone and snow areas and areas of rapid temperature change
SolarArk Evacuated Tube Collector Sizes
You have a choice of 20 or 30 tube kits. Evacuated tube solar collectors consist of a heat exchanger and a series of heat collector tubes. The tubes have a vacuum between an inner and outer layers of borosilicate, a toughened glass. The tubes absorb and retain heat from the atmosphere. Inside the tubes are sealed copper heat pipes containing a small amount of liquid which vapourises and rises to the top of the heat pipes. The water from the tank flows through the heat exchanger manifold at the top of the collector. It absorbs the heat from condenser at the top of the heat pipe and returns the heated water to the storage tank.
Pump and Controller Box
SolarArk pump and controller can be supplied ready housed in one box to assist in installation and provide weather protection to the circulating pump.
The Grundfos Solar 15-20 range is robust, endurable and temperature resistant. It is suitable for water/glycol mixtures and coolants without mineral oils. The pump with composite housing is specific to be used on solar applications and the pump can be used in both open and closed systems.
