Joule Evacuated Tube Solar Thermal System

Why choose our tube solar thermal collectors?

Joule evacuated tube solar collectors offer a highly effective way to harness the sun’s energy to provide hot water for your home. By installing these solar thermal collectors on your property, you stand to reduce your energy bills and cut your carbon footprint.

Joule evacuated tube collectors work by absorbing heat from the sun to produce hot water, which is then stored in a highly insulated cylinder. The collectors can meet a significant proportion of your household’s hot water needs, and they can be supplemented by other heating systems to ensure you have access to all the hot water you need year-round. Their peak output occurs during the summer months, but they work throughout the seasons and produce hot water even in overcast conditions.

Key Benefits

Acapella Evacuated Tube Solar Thermal System high-performance collector is one of the most efficient models on the market and is particularly recommended for use in restricted spaces. The absorber angle can be adjusted by 15°- 75° to deliver an exceptionally high yield, even when the sun is in less favorable positions.

The collector can be installed and used in any position and is designed for use on detached houses and apartment buildings. It features automatic temperature-dependent shutdown, which is activated if heat draw-off stagnates for a long period whilst there is a high level of insulation.

Connecting Solar Pipe To The Panels

If you choose to use solar pipe either in full lengths or as tails the connections must be made to the panels prior to fitting the flashing kit.

The panels are terminated in 3/4” BSP flat face male nipple as supplied as part of the kit. Following the diagram below single fitting should be tightened to the flat face of the elbow connected to the panel.
