    SolPal ICS Solar Water Heater

    SolPal® Collector for Solar Water Heating.

    Due to its perfect combination of a solar collector with a hot water storage tank, SolPal® is more efficient than traditional thermosiphon systems. SolPal® is a compact system with an integrated hot water tank that is suitable for the most diverse applications. Whether you own a family home, a villa, a holiday resort or a weekend retreat, SolPal® is the ideal solution.

    SolPal Benefits:
    Save up to 80% of water heating costs
    Save up to 30% of total energy costs
    Best price/performance ratio
    Federal tax incentives
    Hot water 365 days a year
    Investment against future energy costs
    Compact solution for hot water production

    The simple, compact and efficient design of the SolPal® ICS system offers an extremely high price/performance ratio. Add to this its durability, and you get a cost-effective system which will provide free hot water to your household for years.

    Single Collector Panel does not include any plumbing or control components. It is intended for:
    Add-on collector panels to Complete System when additional
       panels are desired to increase capacity

    Large commercial projects requiring multiple collector panels
    Replacement change-out of damaged or obsolete collector panels
    Custom applications requiring only the use of collector panels

    Easy installation - SolPal ICS systems are easy to install. The solar collector and hot water storage tank are incorporated into a single, compact casing. Installation is as easy as plumbing the cold water feed and hot water return into your existing domestic hot water system. This is truly a “plug & play” system.

    More efficient than thermosiphon systems - When compared to traditional thermosiphon systems, the SolPal ICS is superior in collecting heat from the sun, and transferring it to your household water. And in areas where direct sunlight is not always available, the water tank backup will supply hot water for your household.

    Sleek design - The SolPal ICS system offers a sleek profile that follows the contour of your roof. Optimized visual appeal is achieved through blending of form, function and material. Traditional thermosiphon systems are bulky and do not blend in well with their surroundings.

    Product Applications:
    For areas with good water quality
      See recommended water values
    For climate areas where freezing seldom occurs
    It can be used as a Stand-Alone system with no additional tank
       or in combination with other energy sources

    Integrated collector storage system
     Attractive design - compliments your roof
    Easy Plug and Play installation - installs in half the time

    Most sources of water are ok for this system. As a precautionary measure we suggest you take a water sample to a local water conditioning company for a no cost/low cost water test.

    Important Note: Two factors that are important for use of these units are water quality and potential freezing.  Water quality is an important factor for these units as they are made of 444 stainless steel.


    Water Quality:
    Water quality is an important factor for these units as they are made of 444 stainless steel. SolPal should not be installed if the water quality does not conform to the specified limit values below. If you should still choose to install SolPal, it will void your warranty.

    Recommended Water Values
    Water Substance UoM Parameter
    pH value - 7 - 9 (under observance of Sl Index)
    Total hardness gpg 6 - 15
    Chlorides ppm < 250
    Free chlorine ppm < 0,2
    Sulfate ppm < 100
    Iron ppm < 0,5

    Cold Climate Applications:
    Although SolPal is ideally suited for equatorial, tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate applications, all SolPal kits can also be installed in colder climates as a "Three Season" system. During the summer, and even in the early spring and late fall seasons, a SolPal system continues to provide total, or a substantial portion, of hot water requirements. Simply drain the system during winter months when freeze proofing is required, and low sun levels do not allow for efficient operation.

    Freeze Protection:
    The SolPal must be drained if the temperatures fall to:

    10°F for 6 consecutive hours, or
    20°F for 18 consecutive hours

    When these environmental conditions are met or exceeded, the SolPal must be manually drained in accordance with the installation instruction. Failure to do so will void the warranty coverage.


    Technical Note for installations in colder climates:
    If using a FPV Freeze Protection Valve, use a FP35.
    A check valve must be used if a freeze prevention valve is installed. It should be installed in the return solar loop piping below the boiler drain to prevent short circuiting of the freeze prevention valve during cold weather. Use a check valve that is designed for back-flow prevention when installed in a vertical position

     

    PLUG & PLAY Installation Video (Flat Roof)

     

    The pre-assembled plumbing package shown in the video and manual is not available in the U.S.; the plumbing kit includes U.S. approved parts which can be assembled to meet the requirements of the installation.

    Mounting Options:

    SolPal Mounting Brackets
    Includes standard factory
    flush/tilt mounting brackets
    (shown on image on left)



    Flush Mount - underside of unit attaches directly to the mounting surface. For tile roof applications where the tile roofing is installed around the unit, or use with angled rack mounts.

    Fixed Mount - aluminum frame supports unit slightly above mounting surface. For shingle or tile roof applications where a space is desired between the mounting surface and the unit to allow for air flow and rain runoff.

    Tilt Mount - aluminum frame supports unit slightly above mounting surface, plus tilts collector to desired angle for increased solar performance. Can also be used for ground mounts applications [cement pad or footings required].

    Flush mounting the collector to a pitched roof:

    Depending on the local installation codes, the flush-mount hardware that comes packaged in the SolPal box might require additional parts to comply with these codes. If your state requires that you raise the collector above the roof on some sort of substructure, you can select one of our System Mounting Kits, or you will need the following parts to finish securing the collector to the roof (parts not included):

    Unistrut rails for the collector to rest on the roof.
    5/16" bolts with channel nuts & springs to secure the bottom of the SolPal 'L' brackets into their unistrut rails. 1 each per connection needed (typically need 6 connection points)
