Solar Pool Heat Exchangers
Because of the added chlorine and bromine found in pools and spas and the flow requirements at the pool/hot tub side, flat plate solar heat exchangers are not suitable. A Special high flow pool heat exchanger should be used instead. These heat exchangers can handle the higher secondary side flow as well as the high levels of chlorine and also have better flow characteristics making them ideal for solar pool heating or solar hot tub heating. For applications that use salt water, we recommend the titanium version of the solar pool heat exchanger. This version is highly resistant to salt water and chlorine.
Benefits of Solar Pool Exchangers
Our Solar Pool Exchanger Line of heat exchangers are designed to perform at high secondary side fluid velocities with low pressure drops.
To maximize the performance of the Solar Pool exchanger, the product should be installed in a counter-current flow method, as shown below in Figure below. The hot, or heating, fluid flows through the tube or primary side. The cold, or heated, fluid flows through the shell or secondary side.
Example: for swimming pool applications, the pool water is to flow through the shell side, and the boiler water is to flow through the tube side.
Please DO NOT exceed these design parameters. Failure to adhere to these parameters may result in equipment damage and/or personal injuriesPool Exchanger Design
The helical tube bundles are available in both Titanium and 316L Stainless Steel. Stainless steel tube bundles should not be used in applications that involve high levels or sea/saltwater. The Titanium tube bundles are recommended in these cases.
