Environmentally-Friendly Technology That Can Save You Money.

The Solar Boiler collects energy from the sun and converts it into hot water.

Domestic hot water is the second-highest energy cost in the typical household. In fact, for some homes it can be the highest energy expenditure. Solar water heating can now reduce your domestic water heating costs by as much as 65%.

The Thermo Dynamics' Solar Boiler is today's state-of-the-art solar water-heating appliance. Designed to pre-heat the domestic water that is supplied to your conventional water heater, it can result in remarkable savings. It's easy to install and maintenance free. The installation package contains all the necessary hardware and complete instructions. As a homeowner, you can install it yourself or have your local Thermo Dynamics dealer do it for you.

All parts of the system are built to demanding specifications, employing the latest solar technology for maximum performance. The Solar Boiler is manufactured from readily-available components, ensuring lower costs and reliability. The solar collectors are constructed of aluminum, copper, and tempered glass. The assembly incorporates the MICRO-FLO® absorber, a continuous tube with only two connections for effortless installation.


Your investment in clean and natural.

The Solar Boiler is environmentally-friendly. It does not pollute or use valuable non-renewable resources. Even the pump to transport heat from the collectors to the storage tank is powered by the sun. Solar energy is a sound investment in everyone's future, today.

The Solar Boiler is designed for automatic daily and year round operation. A non-toxic glycol solution in the solar collectors eliminates winter freezing problems. A photovoltaic module regulates the proper daily operation of the Solar Boiler and the solar loop circulator turns on only when the collectors are hot enough to heat the solar tank.

As one of Thermo Dynamics' new generation of solar products, the Solar Boiler makes solar energy economically available to your family's needs. It's an investment in reliable performance.
You have our name on it!


How it works:

 


Light from the sun strikes the solar collector and heats the black metal Sunstrip absorber underneath the glass cover. This heat is transferred to a non-toxic anti-freeze solution (propylene glycol and water) that is pumped through the collector and returns to the Solar Boiler.

The hot glycol then transfers heat to the water in the storage tank via the Solar Boiler 's heat exchanger. The water is heated repeatedly in this fashion, until the solar tank is hot.


The Solar Boiler is used as a domestic water pre-heater in conjunction with your conventional heating system. Cold water enters the Solar Boiler for initial heating, and is then delivered to the backup or conventional heating system for final heating as required. The conventional system is typically fueled by oil, electricity, propane, natural gas, etc....

Conventional energy requirements can be reduced substantially by using the Solar Boiler, and on many days the Solar Boiler will provide ample hot water without the backup (conventional) heater turning on. In most families, the Solar Boiler will displace up to 65% of the water heating requirements. A typical system for a family of four would include two solar collectors (6 square meters), 270 litres of solar water storage and a photovoltaic module to drive the glycol pump.
