Description

The Wagner SECUSOL solar water heater is a German-made drainback system in which the oversized heat exchangerDevice that transfers heat from one material or medium to another. An air-to-air heat exchanger, or heat-recovery ventilator, transfers heat from one airstream to another. A copper-pipe heat exchanger in a solar water-heater tank transfers heat from the heat-transfer fluid circulating through a solar collector to the potable water in the storage tank. coil in the insulated tank serves as the drainback tank, avoiding the need for plumbing in a separate tank. An integral control module and circulator pump contribute to fast, efficient installation. A separate electric element above the solar heat exchanger loop allows a single 66- or 92-gallon tank to provide a family's or business's hot water needs. Wagner's EURO C20 AR-M flat-plate collectors used with the SECUSOL system are among the highest-efficiency flat-plate collectors on the market, benefitting from ultra-high-transmittance glass cover plates (96% transmittance), a selective absorber surface on the copper absorber plate, and 2-1/2 inches of mineral wool insulation behind the absorber. Pre-insulated soft-copper plumbing lines connect to the collectors and tank with quick-mount, solderless compression fittings to speed installation and reduce installer errors. The collectors can be flush-mounted on the roof or installed on a rack system, also produced by Wagner.
