Heatseeker Maxi – High Performance Evacuated Tube Solar Pool Heating
The Heatseeker Maxi Solar system uses evacuated tube technology to make hot water.
The Butterfly style Solar collector is an all glass evacuated tube solar collector with an east – west orientation of the tubes and a special water in glass manifold. It is often applied globally to large scale hot water production and it is also well suited and easily adapted to the heating of swimming pools and spas.
The key component of this system is the Evacuated tube which consists of two glass tubes. The outer tube is made of extremely strong transparent glass, which is able to resist hail up to 25mm in diameter. The inner tube is also made from borosilicate glass and is coated with a special selective coating developed at the University of Sydney that provides excellent solar absorption and minimal heat reflection.
The air is withdrawn (evacuated) from the space between the two glass tubes to form a vacuum, which virtually eliminates conductive and convective heat loss – a lot like a thermos flask. This makes it ideal for use on colder, cloudy days in winter and high wind areas.
