Solar Heat Storage Tanks – 500 – 5,000 Litre – New Technology

Solar heat storage tanks, ranging in size from 500 to 5,000 litres, represent a novel technological advancement in the field of thermal energy storage.

These tanks have been specifically designed to cater to a wide range of applications, including kitchens and dormitories, and can be tailored to meet specific requirements.

Constructed with thick wall polyethylene, these tanks offer several advantages over traditional metal tanks, such as ease of introducing cold water at low pressure and a longer lifespan.

Capable of storing thermal energy at temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees Celsius, these tanks also come equipped with an electrical heating backup system, which can be utilized during high demand periods or for evening showers.

Furthermore, the tanks are equipped with a sophisticated control system that includes a programmable intelligent controller and a temperature differential probe.

With efficient insulation and minimal heat loss, these tanks provide a cost-effective and sustainable solution for heating needs.

Customization options for color schemes and connections are available, and interested parties can contact Pioneer Plastics Energy for further information and assistance.

Tank Features

The tank features of the solar heat storage tanks include:

  • Thick wall polyethylene thermal storage tanks with a chromatic finish
  • Polyester insulation
  • Ability to store thermal energy at temperatures of 80 to 90 degrees

These tanks are designed with 100mm thick polyester insulation, ensuring minimal heat loss and efficiently storing thermal energy. This contributes to the overall energy efficiency of the system.

Additionally, the tanks offer pump options, including 12-volt and 220-volt pumps, which are selected based on the system’s requirements. The pump flow rate is determined by the solar panel or heat pump company to ensure effective circulation of water. The pump can be controlled through the intelligent controller, providing convenience and control over the system’s operation.

Overall, these tank features enhance the performance and efficiency of the solar heat storage system.

Benefits of Polyethylene

Polyethylene tanks offer a durable and reliable solution for storing thermal energy, allowing for the efficient and sustainable heating of spaces. These tanks have several advantages, including longevity and superior thermal storage capabilities.

Longevity advantages: Polyethylene tanks have a longer life expectancy compared to metal tanks, making them a viable investment for large-scale systems. Their robust construction ensures they can withstand the test of time, providing a cost-effective solution for heating needs.

Thermal storage capabilities: These tanks can store thermal energy at temperatures ranging from 80 to 90 degrees. The thick wall polyethylene construction and efficient insulation contribute to minimal heat loss, optimizing the use of solar thermal energy. This ensures that the stored heat remains at the desired temperature for an extended period, providing a consistent and reliable source of hot water or heating.

Overall, polyethylene tanks provide a sustainable and efficient option for storing and utilizing thermal energy, making them a valuable component of solar heating systems.

Control System

Efficient control systems play a crucial role in optimizing the performance and functionality of solar heating systems, ensuring smooth operation and effective utilization of thermal energy. A well-designed control system consists of a control panel, probe temperature detection, and pump control. The control panel serves as the central command unit, allowing users to monitor and adjust system settings. The probe temperature detection feature accurately measures temperature differentials, enabling the system to activate the electrical heating backup if the solar panels fail to reach the desired temperature. Pump control is another important aspect of the control system, ensuring the effective circulation of water throughout the system. The pump size and specifications are determined by the solar panel or heat pump company, and it can be controlled through the intelligent controller. Overall, a reliable and efficient control system is essential for maximizing the performance and energy efficiency of solar heat storage tanks.
