  • The Controller will switch on the pump when the temperature at the collector sensor TC is higher than the return temperature TR by at least the pre selected amount.

  • The pump circulates a heat transfer fluid around the loop.

  • Heat from the collector is transferred to the storage tank through the heat exchange coil.

  • With the pump running, if delta T is less than preset value, the pump will switch off.

  • When a preset tank temperature is reached at TMAX, the controller can switch off the pump.

  • The check valve (non-return valve) prevents heat from the tank rising towards the collector should the tank be warmer (e.g. at night).
