Solar

Aberdeen & North-East Heating supplies and installs two makes of solar powered system:
  • The Greenskies range from Worcester Bosch (See right)
  • The Sunstar Solar Tube System from Olymp
Olymp SunStar System
SunStar solar tubes is a closed heat pipe system: The collector is installed and connected to the piping of the system. The SunStar solar tubes are then connected to the collector.

The tubes are insulated by a vacuum and the absorber surface goes all around the inside. This absorber surface transfers the heat to a water filled pipe and the water evaporates because of this energy.
The steam then rises into the collector and condenses, and the energy is transferred to the piping.

Typical Solar System Diagram

The most common solar system layout uses a twin-coil cylinder which is heated by both a boiler (or other heat source) and the solar panels. The solar system and the regular heating system do not come into direct contact with each other, and the only shared part is the cylinder.

The solar system has its own pump, expansion vessel, pressure release valve, air vent and controller.

The Worcester Solar Package is ideally suited for use with Worcester oil or gas fired regular or system boilers.
