    Hi guys:
    If aluminum or copper plate is very good for heat conduction ??
    Why we do not connect that plate directly to the storage tank????
    I mean rolling part of that plate around the storage tank ((if you like)) ???
    No risers,no HTF ..
    Why such design is not practical????
    Thank you in advance..

    Hi guys:
    I plan for making a flat plate solar water heater,but without a pump and also without that thermosyphon ,I need to get away with that head height 50 cm,
    So I plan to use flat plat collector with circulating loop using heatexchanger inside the storage tank..
    The storage tank is a bove the collector,what are my chances???
    Please if any scheme available??
    Waiting in suspense..
    Thank you..

    • You can use a flate plate collector with a heat exchanger as a closed loop system. Heated water pressure and system efficiency may be an issue. Also need to stop the reverse cooling effect in the night.

    I am using flat plate collector ,with heat exchanger through the storage tank length. What should be the heat exchanger size if the collector is 2×1m and riser is 1/2 inch outet d and the tank is 120 L .

    Hi guys:
    I have a flate plate solar collector whitch 2×1 m area ,with steel 1/2 inch D piping going back and forth making about 18m loop and then goes into one end of a storage tank as heat exchanger leaving out of the other end ((1 m heat exchanger)) ..
    The tank is 120 L ,the pipe is very hot at collector outlet from 10am-16pm .but the water inside the tank is not heated adequetlly.
    What is my proplem???

    • Inadequate circulation of heated water between collector and tank.

      • Salah Salah says:

        What should be my heat exchanger size((volume)) that should match my numbers??
        The tank along with heat exchanger inside is tilted up from inlet to outlet ,meaning the inlet is a little lower than outlet..
        What is wrong???

    I would like to use your illustration labeled “typical flat plate collector” in a history I am preparing to document solar buildings research conducted at Los Alamos National Laboratory. I would cite the origin of the figure at . May I have your permission to use this figure? If you charge for permission to use copyrighted material, what would be the charge?

    Hi there. I would like to use this article on a school project i am working on. I was wondering if you could provide the date of publication an auctor name for references.

    In the thermosyphon heating some height head distance should be considered .what if that distance is less ??

    I am wanting to heat our swimming pool using solar thermal collection. Where can I find help to design and purchase the equipment needed?

    Can I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who really knows what they’re discussing online. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.
