Streamline Split System

Solahart Split System Solar Water Heaters

Solahart’s split system solar water heaters are designed to give you the maximum flexibility of installation locations.

The low profile and unobtrusive Solahart solar collectors are mounted on a roof facing the equator, whilst the storage tank is mounted at ground level out of sight. The electric boosted model can even be installed inside your home. This minimises the visual impact of going solar, while maximising the potential savings from the sun.

How the Split Systems Work

With open circuit split systems the water is circulated from the tank at ground level through the solar collectors by an electric pump called a ‘circulator’.

Cooler water is circulated in a continuous cycle from the bottom of the tank and through the solar collectors where it absorbs the heat extracted from the sun before being returned to the tank.

A control unit on the water heater regulates the circulator. When the controller senses an 8°C differential in temperature between the top of the solar collectors and the bottom of the tank, the circulator is activated until the temperature differential falls to 2°C. This ensures the optimum use of the sun’s free energy.

In closed circuit split systems, which are recommended for frost prone and poor water chemistry situations, Hartgard antifreeze fluid is used to circulate through the collectors. The heat harvested from the collectors is transferred from the fluid to the water in the tank by a heat exchanger.

With a Solahart solar hot water split system you can choose from a range of boosters including in-tank electric or in-line gas continuous flow boosting to ensure you always have hot water on tap even on cloudy days.

Streamline Split System Open Circuit MDV Electric Boost

Features of the Streamline Open Circuit Electric Boost

  • Stylish slimline design
  • Minimum visual impact
  • Storage tank can be installed outdoors or indoors
  • Electric and gas boost models available
  • Ceramic lined tank
  • Choice of collectors to suit high to low solar gain areas
  • Toughened, hail resistant collector glass

The system is available with two types of solar collectors to harvest the sun’s heat and transfer it to the water. The L collector with its black powder coated aluminium absorber plate provides economical service in low to high solar gain areas and the higher efficiency TBT200 collector with its sputtered selective surface copper absorber plate is suitable for use in lower solar gain areas.

Copper is used for the risers in both types of collectors for its high thermal conductivity ensuring the maximum amount of heat energy is passed into the water.

Solar energy is transferred directly to the water as it is moved through the collectors by an electric circulator and the heated water is stored in the ground mounted MDV series tank.

The electric boosted models are equipped with an in-tank element to ensure a supply of hot water during periods of poor or no solar gain. Alternatively the system can be installed as a preheater with an inline Solahart gas booster water heater.

Benefits of the Streamline Open Circuit Electric Boost

  • Can save up to 55% to 85% of water heating energy consumption*
  • Hot water regardless of the weather
  • Can qualify for valuable government environmental incentives*
  • Reduced energy use can save up to 2.0 to 3.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum*
  • Peace of mind with Solahart’s 5/3/2† year warranty
  • Space efficient and flexibility of installation

*Energy savings of up to 55% to 85% shown are based on Australian Government approved TRNSYS simulation modelling using a medium load. Savings and incentives will vary depending upon your location, type of Solahart system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type of water heater being replaced, hot water consumption and fuel tariff. Maximum financial savings off your hot water bill are achievable when replacing an electric water heater on continuous tariff.

†Warranty Details: 5/3/2, 5 year cylinder and collectors supply, 3 year labour on cylinder and collectors, 2 year parts including labour; applies to a single family domestic dwelling only. All other applications have a 3/1/1/1 warranty: 3 years cylinder, 1 year collectors, 1 year parts, 1 year labour.

Streamline Split System Closed Circuit DKV and DJV Electric or Gas Boost

Features of the Streamline Closed Circuit Boost

  • Suitable for frost prone areas or harsh water areas
  • Stylish slimline design
  • Electric boosted tank can be installed indoors or outdoors
  • Solar connections to top of the tank makes for simpler and tidier installation
  • Controlled variable flow through solar collectors to maximise solar gain
  • Choice of collectors to suit high to low solar gain areas
  • Minimum visual impact
  • Electric and gas boost models available
  • Ceramic lined tank
  • Toughened, hail resistant collector glass

The Streamline closed circuit system offers a choice of either the Solahart Kf or J collector. Both model collectors feature Solahart’s revolutionary multi-flow collector which uses a huge 35 risers to extract the maximum amount of energy from the sun. The closed circuit design protects the system from freezing, making it suitable for regions prone to frost. It is also ideal for use in areas with a harsh water supply.

The higher efficiency absorber of the Kf collector with its Black Chrome selective surface maximises the absorption of available solar energy providing even more savings.

The system is equipped with either an electric booster element or an integrated in-line gas booster and a thermostat which senses when boosting is required to ensure hot water regardless of the weather.
