The Solar Collector
The solar collector is made up of a number of vacuum insulated glass tubes that absorb the sun’s rays. It comprises a double tube design with intricate layers of borosilicate glass, aluminum, solar filament, and copper pipes. The unit works in this kind of way that the glass allows light in, connecting with the solar filament yet, the insulation prevents the heat/energy (just recently captured) from being released. Specifically, it absorbs at a rate of 93% but it surely has a heat lack of not up to 6%. The glass tubes are sealed creating a smooth, nearly seamless casing. Borosilicate glass was once selected not only because of its strength but in addition the ability to resist warping (in either high or low temperatures).
The solar collector frame is made of sturdy anodized aluminum and specifically designed to match and hold the 15, 20 or 30 tube collector units. The adjustable frame can also be mounted anywhere from a 23 degree angle to a 46 degree angle. Depending for your solar zone and which way the back of your house is positioned, the angle of your solar collector is also a very powerful factor in obtaining the optimal amount of light.

This go with the flow sensing back-up heater is the contemporary development in solar technology, but most importantly one that saves you more money.
Keep an eye on Panel
If the circulating pump is the heart of the system then, the Keep an eye on panel is the brain . It regulates the temperature sensors and activates thecirculating pump to go on. This small electrical unit can also be mounted at the wall and used to Keep an eye on the system as the homeowner dictates.
