Local Solar Water Heating Systems

The number one local solar water heating systems are manufactured by Kwikot.

Model Quiksol Tasol EVT
Manufactured South Africa South Africa
Collector Toughened prismatic, non-reflective anti-hail tempered glass. Semi-selective black crome surface on copper substrate offers maximum absorbtion efficiency. Evacuator Tubes manufactured from borosilicate glass. The tube consists of a transparent outer tube, allowing light rays to pass through, and a coated inner tube for radiation absorbtion.
Tank Inner cylinder manufactured from 2mm steel and thermo fused porcelain enamelled for longevity and hygiene. Polyurethane insulation between the heat exchanger and outer casement reduces heat loss. Inner cylinder manufactured from 2mm steel and thermo fused porcelain enamelled for longevity and hygiene.

Coupling Closely coupled or split system. Closely coupled or split system.
System Indirect system. Direct or indirect system
Water Circulation Thermosyhon. Thermosyphon or pumped.
Moving Parts No moving parts. No moving parts if thermosyphon. Pumped systems use either a 12V circulating pump powered by photovoltaic collector panel, or 220V circulating pump. Geyserwise controller required for circulating pump.
Anti-Freeze Replace every 3 years. Proylene gel. Indirect systems: replace every 3 years. Proylene gel.
