10 Gallon Tank. The drainback reservoir is intended to serve as a storage vessel for the solar heat transfer fluid when the system is not in operation. As the circulation pump energizes, heat transfer fluid is drawn from the reservoir and is circulated across the solar collectors where heat is gained and transferred, via a heat exchanger, to the water storage tank. When the pump de-energizes, gravity enables the heat transfer fluid to “drain-back” into the reservoir. The drainback reservoir may be installed as part of a new solar water heating system or as part of a retrofit to an existing water heater.
Tanks are constructed from stainless steel. Reservoir comes with site glass, fittings, pressure relief valve, AND buffer/inhibitor solution. A tank stand is available for 10 gallon reservoirs. The heat exchanger is unique in its design of containing 11 fins per inch that allow for the maximum amount of surface area for the heat exchange process. The Drainback reservoir provides an 98% heat transfer, which is the highest on the market today.
