The solar collector acts as an engine of any solar water heater. A solar vacuum tube is the most efficient solar power production system; but was more costly than flat panel system. With the immense popularity of solar energy and modern manufacturing techniques, the solar vacuum tubes cost less while ensuring the greatest return on the investment.


Working principle of SunRain solar vacuum tube collector


The working principle of solar vacuum tube is simple. It works same like a coffee thermos. A solar tube comprises of two layers of glass with vacuum in between the layers. The outermost layer of the solar tube is actually the Borosilicate glass that has very iron content and allows around 98% energy to pass through. In fact the innermost laye...

Evacuated Solar vacuum tubes are the essential parts for every solar collector, used for the functional absorption and conversion of sunlight into utilizable energy. Mostly the evacuated Solar vacuum tube is consists of two glass tubes merged at both ends. The gap between them consists of a solar absorbing coating over the inner tube. The evacuated layer provides an exceptional insulation that facilitates in preserve over 92% of the solar energy. To mention few design features of solar vacuum tube responsible for an effective solar water heater as follows.

The solar evacuated tube collectors are designed with individual round tubes to capture and convert the maximum amount of sun rays into heat energy for the solar heating system.  They are also perfect for a variety of applications such as solar hot water heating, solar space heating or solar pool heating in ice-cold climates. The solar evacuated tubes function in a closed loop, open loop, and drain back solar systems, efficiently even at a temperature as low as -40 degrees C when flat plate collectors may fail to perform. Additionally, there is little chance for weight or roof structural issues with the solar vacuum tubes as they are not required to be filled with large quantities of water. Even if some of the solar evacuated tubes br...

Solar water tanks are containers designed in different size and capacity to add to the performance of solar water heater systems. You will have to select them according to the hot water demand or usage in your home or office.


It is mainly the heat drawing efficiency of solar water storage tanks that would decide the amount of usable hot water available for your usage. Therefore, your solar water system should have the right size solar water tank to make the most of the heat input and deliver as much hot water as you need for using in washing, cleaning, bathing etc.


Water tank selection for your solar heating system can be best made on the demand of hot water for usage. As a solar water heater user, you will have to learn about how to insta...

Solar water heating systems are also known as solar domestic hot water systems. They can be the affordable way to generate hot water for your home. Solar water heaters are used in any climate, and the fuel they use – sunshine is free of cost.


How Solar Water Heating Systems Work?


Solar water heating systems comprise of solar collectors and solar water tanks for storage. However, there are two types of solar water heating systems – active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive – which don’t have.

Active Solar Water Heating Systems –


There are two types of active solar water heating systems: direct circulation systems and indirect circulation systems.


Direct Circulation Systems – In the direct circulation systems, pumps cir...
