DX Drainback System

Non Pressurized Closed Loop The DX system is an indirect closed loop system, and is currently the most efficient indirect system on the market. Featuring active dual flow heat exchange with a finned copper heat exchanger. Method of heat exchange: The “DX” Systems’ Drainback reservoir contains a built-in heat exchanger. As the heat transfer fluid is circulated through the solar collector loop, water is circulated from the storage tank through the finned coil heat exchanger inside the reservoir. DX system features: Gravity removes all water from the collectors, and their pipe lines to ensure they never freeze when the system is not capturing heat. Each time the pump shuts off, the water in the collector(s) and piping, which are mounted at a slight angle, drains into the insulated reservoir. A sight glass attached to the reservoir tank indicates that the collector(s) has been completely drained. A controller is used in these systems to sense when the temperature at the top of the collectors is hotter than the water in the bottom of the storage tank and if the storage tank is at the desired temp. When the collector temp is 8°F-12°F hotter than the storage the pump turns on and when the difference is less than 3°F-5°F the pump turns off.

DB Drainback System

Non Pressurized Closed Loop The DB System is an indirect, closed loop system utilizing gravity as the underlying force. Method of heat exchange: the “DB” Drainback Systems’ storage tank contains a double wall wrap around heat exchanger. Heat transfer fluid is circulated through the solar collector loop, and then through the heat exchanger in the storage tank. Having a double wall wrap around heat exchanger is an option for code requirements with those states where it is mandatory. DB system features: Gravity removes all water from the collectors, and their pipe lines to ensure they never freeze when the system is not capturing heat. Each time the pump shuts off, the water in the collector(s) and piping, which are mounted at a slight angle, drains into the insulated reservoir. A sight glass attached to the reservoir tank indicates that the collector(s) has been completely drained. A controller is used in these systems to sense when the temperature at the top of the collectors is hotter than the water in the bottom of the storage tank and if the desired temp has been reached. When the collector temp is 8°F-12°F hotter than the storage the pump turns on and when the difference is less than 3°F-5°F the pump turns off. Alternate Energy Technologies

DX Drainback Retrofit Kit Non Pressurized Closed Loop

The DX Drainback Retrofit Kit is great for existing water heaters which are fairly new and do not need to be replaced. A drainback reservoir with a heat exchanger is installed close to the storage tank. This makes the system closed loop, meaning the potable water will not come into contact with the liquid in the collectors. This system can be installed by any licensed solar installer. DX Retrofit System Features: Easy modification to an existing hot water system. All the benefits of a standard DX system. A controller is used in these systems to sense when the temperature of the collectors are hotter than the water in the bottom of the storage tank. When the temperature is 8째F-12째F hotter in the collector the pump turns on and when the difference is less than 3째F-5째F or the pump turns off. Alternate Energy Technologies

Indirect Pressurized Glycol (PV) Pressurized Closed Loop

The “IPV” is a type of Residential Solar Hot Water System referred to as “indirect” because the sun, through a roof-mounted collector, heats fluid circulating in a closed off solar loop that never comes in direct contact with usable water stored in an insulated tank. IPV System Features: Accommodates climates where freezing weather occurs more frequently. An integrated wrap around heat exchanger inside the storage tank transfers heat from the solar loop to water in the storage tank. Water is the best heat transfer fluid, however glycol can be used to prevent freeezing inside the supply and return lines. A small PV panel (which generates electricity from the sun) is available to operate the circulation pump, further reducing traditional energy consumption. Alternate Energy Technologies

Direct Pressurized Open Loop

The Direct Series systems, found in Tropical Climates, are referred to as direct because the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heat is transferred through the collector directly to the usable water. When there is sufficient heat in the collectors, a pump circulates water from the bottom of a storage tank through collectors where it is heated, and then returns to the tank for storage and eventual use. Direct System Features: A differential control senses temperature differences between water leaving the collector and the coldest water in the bottom of the storage tank. When the temperature of the water in the collector is hotter than the water in the tank, the differential control operates the circulating pump. Freeze protection includes, automatic recirculation, thermally operated valve installed at the collector (where required) or by manually draining, and a properly installed collector.

Direct Pressurized (PV) Open Loop

The Direct Series systems, found in Tropical Climates, are referred to as direct because energy from the sun is transferred through the collector directly to the potable water. When there is sufficient heat in the collectors, a pump circulates water from the bottom of a storage tank through collectors where it is heated, and then returned to the tank for storage and eventual use. DPV System Features: Freeze protection includes a thermally operated valve installed at the collector (where required) or by manually draining a properly installed collector. A PV panel (which generates electricity from the sun) option is available to operate the circulation pump, further reducing traditional energy consumption. Alternate Energy Technologies

Thermosiphon System Open Loop

The Free Flow Series is a Thermosiphon system. As a self-contained solar water heating system, the Free Flow Systems have collector(s) positioned lower than the tank(s), sloped at a minimum of 10째, and operate on the principle of natural convection. As the sun heats the water in the collector, it becomes less dense, causing the water to rise into the tank. The colder, heavier, water in the bottom of the tank then sinks into the bottom of the collector. These events create a continuous natural circulation. Free Flow System Features:

Thermosiphon systems are widely accepted throughout the world today. They are automatic, simple, and reliable.

Thermosiphon Systems do not require a pump or a controller.

There are no moving parts, which allows for little to no maintenance concerns.

The FF-50SS and FF-80SS (50 & 80 gallons) are stainless steel with an electrical backup element.

Features Most pool heating panels are designed to be repaired... Eagle Sun Pool Panels are designed to last. The majority of solar pool heaters are designed with “individual” round flow tubes so that if a tube leaks it can easily be plugged. Some manufacturers even state in their warranty that a damaged system will be repaired if possible. In most cases a “repair” is nothing more than a plug. The problem with this is that a plugged panel is much less efficient or effective at heating your pool. Another problem with the design of most solar pool heating systems is that the shape and thickness of the flow tube walls do not allow for prolonged expansion or contraction that occurs during seasonal temperature changes or extreme weather such as freezing. This patented flat panel design is proven to be more efficient and more durable than other solar pool heaters. Here’s why: Absorb more heat Eagle Sun Pool collectors are visibly thicker than any other pool heating collector because we use up to 35% more raw materials in our panels. This attracts more heat. Reduce heat loss Eagle Sun flow tubes are connected so that they stay warm longer. Other panels can cool rapidly during windy conditions because the “individual” flow tubes aren’t insulated by each other. Last longer The extra material in our panels allows for greater expansion and contraction, provides extra UV protection and prevents weak spots. Prevent freeze damage (covered under warranty) Because water expands by approximately 9% when turning to ice, the strain put on a solar panel’s flow channel can be devastating. Our pool heaters, however, are designed to withstand internal freezing better than any other panel on the market today. As the picture to the right illustrates, the 2 keys to our durability are the thickness of our panels and the shape of the flow channels. 44
