Gobi 408 Solar Water Heater Collector
Set of Two 4 x 8 Collectors
The new GOBI has undergone a complete transformation for 2011 making it the industry’s best flat plate collector. By redesigning the frame and incorporating state of the art components, the GOBI has a reduced profile and even better performance. With 3 sizes (4x6, 4x8, 4x10) and 2 absorber surface types to choose from, there is a GOBI collector for every type of solar water heating application
Thinnest Profile – The redesigned frame is easier to handle for installers and offers the end user a streamlined, sleek look on their roof compared to bulky traditional flat plate collectors.
Rated Top Performance – New SRCC ratings certify that the GOBI now ranks among the best OG-100 collectors. The high energy output of the GOBI offers maximum performance out of the solar hot water system.
Easiest to Install – The GOBI retains its unique Dyn-O-Seal (DOS) union interconnection method. DOS unions come factory assembled and eliminate the time consuming task of soldering each collector together in an array.
New Design Features
• 1” reduction in frame thickness
• Improved insulation
• Full plate absorber
• Rounded frame edge
• OG-100 certified with higher performance and efficiency
1. Low profile, 6063-T6 anodized aluminum frame makes the collector extremely rigid and rust proof
2. Factory fitted 1” Dyn-O-Seal inter-connections eliminate the need for soldering when connecting or capping off collectors
3. Pipes sized for minimal pressure drop and optimal flow
4. Double-strength tempered low iron solar glass with anti-glare finish resists potential damage from harsh weather conditions
5. 2.8” thick profile makes the GOBI the thinnest collector available in the U.S.
6. Weep slots minimize condensation
7. Built-in flange for mounting without collector penetration

Plumbing GOBI Collectors using Dyn-O-Seal
Unions with Discs:
Gobi Collectors are factory fitted with heavy brass half-unions for quick interconnection without soldering. The unions make a positive seal with any solar collector fluid. The O-rings, (two per collector), are to be inserted before tightening the mating halfunions on the collectors. They are attached to the Gobi Frame in a plastic pouch. Capping off and connecting feeder lines can be efficiently performed with the DOS Disk kit.
