How to install a flat plate solar water heater

1. The product components should be checked before installation, the specifications and models of solar water heater should be checked according to the specification model, and whether the fittings are complete, and the site should be cleaned up and lined.

2. For the installation of flat-plate collectors, flat-plate collectors are widely used. The installation of the collectors should be connected with frames. The optimum inclination angle of the installation of the collectors should be determined according to the season and the local latitude.

3. For the installation of solar water tank, when the solar water tank is installed, the water  should be supplied directly to the bottom of the water tank. The height of nozzle is generally 50-100 mm lower than the inlet of the upper circulating pipe. The upper circulating pipe is connected to the upper part of the water tank. Generally, the nozzle is 200 mm lower than the top of the water tank, and the lower circulating pipe is connected from the bottom of the water tank.

4. Installation of connecting pipes: In order to reduce the loss of circulating water, the length of upper and lower circulating pipes should be shortened as far as possible and the number of elbows should be reduced.
