DIRECT SYSTEM
FROST FREE

  • Frost-free locations
  • Coastal areas
    SIZES:
  • 150l: 1070 x 538 cm
  • 200l: 1360 x 538 cm
  • 300l: 1950 x 538 cm

The direct system is used in frost-free locations, where the ambient temperature never falls below 5°C and where the water quality is good (less than 600ppm Total Dissolved Solids/Minerals). The system is used with one or two Solar Collector Panels dependant on the capacity of the Solar tank.

The direct system, is where the water to be used in the household (hot water) circulates through the solar collector panels, transferring solar energy into the storage tank of the solar water heater.

The direct system can be installed as a Split System (pumped or thermosyphoned circulation methods), where the solar water heater is installed inside the roof or away from the solar collector panels or installed as a Close Coupled System (thermosyphon circulation), where the solar water heater is installed outside on the roof and above or higher than the solar collector panels (see section Circulation Methods).

  • The Kwikot Kwiksol Solar Water Heater Direct System complies with SANS 1307, is SABS 400kPa approved and can be used as a close coupled system or split system.
  • The inner cylinder is manufactured from 2mm steel and thermo fused porcelain enamelled for cylinder longevity and hygiene.
  • Polyurethane insulation between the inner cylinder and outer casement reduces energy and heat loss.
  • 2 x aluminium sacrificial anodes are fitted for corrosion protection.
  • The solar water heater is designed for domestic hot water application in conjunction with one or more solar collector panels.
  • The Solar Water Heater is fitted with an isolator switch (IPX4 rated).
  • The two extra water connections required for connecting the solar collector panels and the booster element, ensures that the solar water heater can be used as a conventional electric water heater and as a solar water heater.
  • The solar water heater thermostat will automatically switch on when the incoming hot water from the solar collector panels has not reached the set temperature setting on the thermostat. This will occur on cloudy days and at night when the water temperature drops in the solar water heater or when hot water is drawn off and cold water enters the solar water heater.

DIRECT  SYSTEM
FROST & FROST FREE

  • Frost-free locations
  • Inland and Coastal areas

    SIZES:
  • 100l: 775 x 538cm
    12 tubes
  • 150l: 1070 x 538cm
    16 tubes
  • 200l: 1360 x 538 cm
    20 tubes

This direct system can be used in frost and frost-free locations and where the water quality

is good (less than 600ppm Total Dissolved Solids/Minerals).

The direct system, is where the water to be used in the household (hot water) circulates through the solar vacuum tubes manifold, transferring solar energy into the storage tank of the solar water heater.

This direct system is installed as a Close Coupled System (thermosyphon circulation), where the solar water heater is installed outside on the roof and above the solar vacuum tubes.

  • The Kwikot Kwiksol Solar Water Heater Direct System complies with SANS 1307, is SABS 400kPa approved and can be used as a close coupled system or split system.
  • The inner cylinder is manufactured from 2mm steel and thermo fused porcelain enamelled for cylinder longevity and hygiene.
  • Polyurethane insulation between the inner cylinder and outer casement reduces energy and heat loss.
  • 2x aluminium sacrificial anodes are fitted for corrosion protection.
  • The solar water heater has an isolator switch fitted on the front end dome (IPX4 rated) and designed for domestic hot water application in conjunction with an array of solar vacuum tubes.
  • The two extra water connections required for connecting the manifold above the solar vacuum tubes, and the booster element, ensures that the solar water heater can be used as a conventional electric water heater and as a solar water heater.
  • The solar water heater thermostat will automatically switch on when the incoming hot water from the manifold above the solar vacuum tubes, has not reached the set temperature setting on the thermostat. This will occur on cloudy days and at night when the water temperature drops in the solar water heater or when hot water is drawn off and cold water enters the solar water heater.

INDIRECT SYSTEM
FROST

  • Frost locations
  • Inland areas

    SIZES:
  • 150l: 1035 x 538 cm
  • 200l: 1325 x 536 cm
  • 300l: 1935 x 538 cm

The indirect system is used in locations where frost occurs, where the ambient temperature falls below 5°C and where the water quality is poor (more than 600ppm Total Dissolved Solids / Minerals). The system can be used with one or two Solar Collector Panels dependent on the capacity of the solar tank.

An indirect system is where the potable water used in the household (hot water) does not circulate through the solar collector panels, but remains in the solar water heater and is heated through a heat exchanger around the vessel. Propylene glycol is circulated through the solar collector panels, transferring solar energy into the heat exchanger and in turn heating the water in the solar water heater

  • The Kwikot Kwiksol Solar Water Heater Indirect System complies with SANS 1307, is SABS 400kPa approved and can be used as a close coupled system or split system.
  • The inner cylinder is manufactured from 2mm steel and thermo fused porcelain enamelled for cylinder longevity and hygiene.
  • Polyurethane insulation between the heat exchanger and outer casement reduces energy and heat loss.
  • 2 x aluminium sacrificial anodes are fitted for corrosion protection.
  • The solar water heater is designed for domestic hot water application in conjunction with one or more solar collector panels or solar vacuum tubes. The Solar Water Heater is fitted with an Isolator Switch (IPX4 rated).
  • The two extra fluid connections required for connecting solar collector panels or solar vacuum tubes, and the booster element
    ensures that the solar water heater can be used as a conventional electric water heater and as a solar water heater.
  • The solar water heater thermostat will automatically switch on when the incoming hot propylene glycol fluid from the solar collector panels has not reached the set temperature setting on the thermostat. This will occur on cloudy days and at night when the water temperature drops in the solar water heater or when hot water is drawn off and cold water enters the solar water heater.

RETROFIT –
DIRECT SYSTEM

FROST & FROST FREE

  • Contact us to see if your current geyser can be retrofitted.

This particular direct system is used in both frost and frost free locations and where the water quality is good (less than 600ppm Total Dissolved Solids/Minerals).

The direct system is where the water to be used in the household (hot water), circulates through the vacuum tube manifold, transferring solar energy into a storage vessel.

The solar retrofit conversion direct system, is specifically designed to convert an existing installed Kwikot or any other make or brand of high pressure electric water heater (400kPa or 600kPa working pressure) with a water storage capacity of 150lt and 200lt, into a solar system. The system works on the pump circulating method.
