The AS “active solar” Envirosun Solar Hot Water Heaters are also known as the split solar hot water system, they offer greater flexibility, improved aesthetics for your home and a larger hot water storage tank capacity
These solar hot water systems only require the solar panels to be installed on the roof with the hot water storage tank located at ground level or any other convenient location throughout the home. Envirosun AS solar hot water system are relatively simple in operation – when the solar hot water panels (also known as solar collectors) are able to add heat into the storage tank, a small pump is switched on to circulate hot-water from the collectors and replace it with cool water from the tank.
The circulation pumps are relatively small and silent, they also draw a negligible amount of power (less than 28 watts) that is also only used when operating or needing solar to increase the hot water storage cylinder’s temperature.
When the collectors are 6°C hotter than the water in the storage tank, the circulating pump is operated. When the differential falls to 4°C or lower, the pump is not operated. The microprocessor also uses the sensor information to control a suite of over-temperature protection modes:
if the water in the Envirosun storage tank reaches 70°C, the solar pump is not operated
if the solar collector panels temperature reaches 190°C, the pump is cycled on to control the temperature to below 185°C therefore protecting the solar panels
if the solar panels temperature reaches 200°C the pump is not operated to prevent damage
if the tank temperature has risen above 70°C and the collectors are cooler the pump is run intermittently to protect the storage tank from damage and overheating
