SolarPod

30% of the payback from a solar panel system comes directly from your hot water cylinder.
SolarPod hot Water Cylinder

Our SolarPod makes sure you get maximum payback. Our twin coil and triple coil SolarPods are specifically designed to work in conjunction with domestic heating systems.

Our solar cylinders are manufactured with either twin or triple independent coils.

One or two coils are designed to transfer heat from an independent heating source, (eg. transferring heat from a central heating boiler or solid fuel boiler to the water in the solar cylinder) and the solar coil, which is manufactured from high efficiency finned tubes with a large surface area, to transfer heat from the solar panels into the solar hot water cylinder.

Advantages

The boiler coil, which (if fitted) is manufactured to BS 1566, can be supplied as high recovery to reduce boiler cycling. Cylinder connection sizes can be specified as 22mm or 28mm compression.

The high efficiency solar coil is fitted with a 22mm compression and with all connections protruding beyond the insulation. This makes our twin or triple coil SolarPod one of the most efficient solar panel systems manufactured in the UK.

The cylinders are available in three grades – Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3, with Grade 3 generally being selected for normal domestic use.

Grades 1 & 2 are made from heavier material and are most often used where there is a greater working head of water or where improved durability is required.

Alternative heights and diameters are also available in our range of solar cylinders where space and water volumes are at a premium. In general, solar cylinders are sized to suit the number of house holders and the solar thermal panel surface area.
