Solar heating components

SOLAR HEATING COMPONENTS

We can provide a complete range of solar hot water component parts that are designed to make secure joints in high pressure glycol solar heating systems. Each singular part or component can be purchased to service an existing or new build project. The solar thermal system provides heat through a transfer process securing heat attracted by roof mounted collectors. These then absorb the sun’s rays during the day into fluid driven around a circuit of pipes by a thermal pump station that ultimately this provides heat to a twin coiled cylinder. This for the uninitiated is always kept separate from the household potable circuit encased within a pressurized sealed thermally bonded circuit.

A well running system will work without fault if serviced once a year or at least checked for low pressure reading that will then point towards leaking seals. These then as a must have to be changed to make sure the system does not over run and created over temperatures. Within this section we offer a few basic solar PV components designed for heating and fixing break downs and servicing. Solar hot water spares and part for maintenance. Solar PV Components heating and fixing spares.

So at this point we suggest checking all joints for leaks, ensuring that the pressure gauge is just below 2 bar signifies that it is working well. Although the system may not have any leaks the fluid should be exchanged every 12 months to ensure the maximum benefit is being recovered. We offer an annual overhaul kit and can provide a pump station hire for self service or if required we have an engineer that can service your existing product. Contact us with any need that are not included within web site, please feel free to email, then we reply to you within 24 hours.

Solar water heating spares

These parts enable the repair of damaged DN12 DN12 flexible tube and DN16 fittings using these quick repair joint parts

When connecting flexible solar thermal tube to a flat faced fitting or connection, we offer these DN12 & DN16 fittings

When you need to secure flexible solar thermal tube. Use these brackets, they will prevent movement under normal working conditions to avoid leaks, these flexible solar thermal tube retaining clamps are ideal for both inside and outdoors. Wall fixing clamps 

When making connections between solid copper and flexible solar thermal tubing in DN12 and DN16, it is necessary to use a flat faced male connector. This avoids possible damaged or leaks, so avoid using standard compression fittings. Our fittings are designed for high temperature solar thermal connections. Flat faced male 

If you need to change solar thermal fluids, this should be done every 2 - 3 years. Use our ready mixed  fluid which makes sure your system is working to its full potential. If mixture is contaminated or has the wrong consistency (mix) then the system will probably be under performing.

Solar thermal sensor cables are necessary to signal the control pump to operate when needed. These cables are available for connections outside on roof, or for storage cylinder inside temperature control.

Pump station connectors have built in O ring seal, these ensure that the components are not over tightened, and retain a leak free connection. These are available in DN12 & DN16  fittings. Do it once do it right.

During the assembly of any solar thermal pipework, it is important to understand the temperatures and pressure ranges this can be subjected to. So in order to look after health and safety, it is important to use the correct DZR straight fittings in 15mm & 22mm  or 90º compression elbows . So that any copper tube used can retain its shape and be prevented form distortion, we recommend using high temperature copper tube inserts . This will then make your system well engineered.
