About 500 L Solar Water Heater

500 liter solar water heater (SWH) is maximum capacity in standard company fitted SWH. It is easy to use and easy to install, there is no maintenance required (except cleaning).

A solar water heater has an array of solar power collectors to collect solar energy and an insulated tank for storing hot water. Both are related to each other. During the day, the water is heated in solar collectors that are either pumped or automatically flow into storage tanks with the thermosyphon principle. Small capacity solar water heater up to 2000 Liter capacity and Home solar water heating system works on thermosyphon principle.

Types of 500 liter solar water heater

There are two types of solar water heating system first is evacuated tube collector (ETC) and second one is flat plate collector (FPC).

  • ETC solar water heater
  • FTC solar water heater
    • Non Pressurized or Standard (NPX)
    • Pressurized (PX)
    • Heat Exchanger (HE)
    • Pressurized with heat exchanger (PX HE)

ETC 500 L solar water heater

Evacuate tube collector (ETC) 500 liter solar water heater systems are cheaper than flap plate collector (FPC) based systems. They perform better in cold regions up to zero degree temperature.

FPC 500 Liter solar heater

Flap plate collector (FCP) 500 liter solar water heater has rust proof body and easy to install. It is suitable for hard water. Flat plate collector consists of an insulated outer metal box at the top with a sheet of glass. Inside are black metallic absorbent sheets that are manufactured in channels or riser tubes to carry water. The absorber absorbs solar radiation and transfers heat to the flowing water.

FPC HE 500 ltr Solar Water Heater

In FCP heat exchanger 500 liter solar water heater, the air is evacuated from the solar tube to create a vacuum. FPC-based systems perform well with anti-freeze solutions at subzero temperatures but increase their cost. In other areas, both perform equally well. This greatly reduces conductive and convective heat losses from the interior of the tube. The resulting air and cold temperatures have less effect on the efficiency of the empty tube collector.

FPC Px. HE 500 LPD Solar Water Heater

500 liter solar water heater of FCP pressurized heat exchanger has solar collectors that can often be used in subzero temperatures without damaging the system. Flat plate systems often require expensive and complex “antifreezes” systems. Due to the high efficiency absorption of solar radiation even during solar conditions, combined with the excellent isolated properties of the solar tube, solar tube collectors can heat water throughout the year.
