Loline 596270: Key Benefits

Key Features

The 596270 Loline solar water heater has its vitreous enamel lined solar storage tank installed at ground or floor level, remotely from the solar collectors. This water heater is a closed circuit solar hot water system with a heat exchanger in the solar storage tank.

The Premier Loline replaces water in the panels with a special heat exchange fluid with anti-freeze properties. The closed circuit fluid is an anti-freeze agent which, when mixed to the correct specification, can withstand temperatures of -20°C before it may freeze. The anti-freeze control of the solar circuit is designed so there is no closed circuit fluid in the solar collectors or solar hot and solar cold pipes when the pump is off.

The 596270 litre Premier Loline offers the convenience of on-site integrated gas boosting, incorporating a 27L/min 6-star continuous flow water heater providing outstanding backup on cloudy days.

  •  Stylish slimline design
  •  Unique Drainback Technology
  •  6-star continuous flow gas boost
  •  Can cut water heating energy use by up to 85%^

 * The suggested price is comprised of RRP less the applicable solar incentive and excluding installation. Solar incentive value applies to 596270 system in Zone 3.

^ Energy reduction of up to 70% based on Australian Government Approved TRNSYS simulation modelling and apply when replacing an electric water heater with a 596270 solar water heater in Zone 3. Savings and incentives will vary depending upon your location, type of Solahart system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type of water heater being replaced, hot water consumption and fuel tariff. Maximum financial savings off your hot water bill are achievable when replacing an electric water heater on continuous tariff.

How Drain-Back Solar Water Heaters Work

The 596270 Loline solar water heater has its vitreous enamel lined solar storage tank installed at ground or floor level, remotely from the solar collectors. This water heater is a closed circuit solar hot water system with a heat exchanger in the solar storage tank.

The heat exchanger is filled with closed circuit fluid and is connected to the solar collectors by insulated copper pipe work forming a closed circuit. The closed circuit fluid is a solution of a blue, non-toxic food grade propylene glycol concentrate mixed with water. The closed circuit concentrate is used to lower the freezing temperature of the closed circuit fluid and provides protection against freezing.

As the sun heats the solar collectors, the increase in temperature activates the pump. The pump switches on whenever the solar collectors are hotter than the water in the tank and the water requires heating. The pump moves the closed circuit fluid from the solar storage tank heat exchanger through an insulated copper pipe to the solar collectors to be heated by the sun’s energy and then back to the heat exchanger. Heat transfers from the closed circuit fluid in the heat exchanger to the water stored in the solar storage tank. This process continues while solar energy is available and until the water in the solar storage tank reaches a temperature of approximately 75°C. The pump is then deactivated and the closed circuit fluid in the solar collectors and solar pipe work drains back into the heat exchanger in the solar storage tank. The closed circuit provides protection to the solar collectors and solar circuit in harsh water areas. 

Gas Boosting

Water stored in the solar storage tank passes through the gas booster when a hot tap is opened. The gas booster is for heating the water at times of low solar energy gain, such as during cloudy or rainy weather, or during colder months. Solar heated water can reach temperatures up to 75°C in the solar storage tank. When the solar heated water temperature is 58°C and above, the gas booster will not boost the water temperature.

The gas booster operates automatically if heating of the water is required. When the solar heated water temperature is below 58°C, the gas burners ignite to provide immediate heating of the water to its preset outlet temperature setting. The heat produced by the burner is transferred to the water through the heat exchanger. The water is heated to a constant temperature by the automatic adjustment of the gas supply to the burner to suit the water flow rate. The gas burners extinguish when the hot tap is closed.

Freeze Protection

The water heater has a freeze protection system. The water heater, including the in-series gas booster, is not suitable for installation in areas where the ambient temperature falls below -20°C (including wind chill factor). The closed circuit fluid is an anti-freeze agent which, when mixed to the correct specification, can withstand temperatures of -20°C before it may freeze. The anti-freeze control of the solar circuit is designed so there is no closed circuit fluid in the solar collectors or solar hot and solar cold pipes when the pump is off. The solar circuit only contains closed circuit fluid when the pump is operating during periods of solar gain when heating is required. When the solar pump stops operating, the closed circuit fluid drains back into the storage tank heat exchanger.

The in-series gas booster has a frost protection system. The frost protection system will protect the in-series gas booster from damage by preventing ice forming in its waterways, in the event of freezing conditions occurring.
