World’s 3rd biggest flat plate collector producer of Ezinc has introduced its new batch solar water heater model called “Nanosol NA 130”. A carefully designed direct passive system combines a solar collector and a 130 lt enameled storage tank into one unit which do not involve pumps or a separated storage tank, anti-freezing, heat exchangers, pumps, valves, sensors, ancillary control devices etc…
Its compact design places special attention on simple, reliable, and cost-effective product. The water is heated directly and no pump is required to move the water and thus without any operating cost. It is really an economical option with almost no maintenance and installation costs and a reliable technology in most of the climate conditions.
Ezinc reduced the heat loss by placing the water tank in a thermally insulated special UV resistant box. This is achieved by encasing the water tank in a double layer ultra-high transmittance polymer-topped box that allows heat from the sun to reach the water tank. The water’s large thermal mass, along with the insulation; reduces the heat dissipation outwards the tank. It has also an inbuilt back-up electric heating element of 2 kW with adjustable thermostat in the integrated tank, the operation of which may be necessary on cloudy days to ensure a reliable supply of hot water.
Nanosol is also an excellent space-saving solution for the people that do not have enough space for a conventional solar water heater as it can be installed in balconies, terraces, roofs and walls. It is also a unique solution for summerhouses, garden buildings and beach & swimming pool showers etc.
Finally if you are the sort who likes to keep an eye on the system, to understand how it works, and to resolve any maintenance issues independently, then “Nanosol” solar water heater could be for you.
