Additional features: Equipped with a solar heat exchanger connected to the storage vessel and a corrugated stainless steel coil within the tank, the Strato-Therm+ maximizes heat transfer in a solar thermal system and increases collector performance. A back-up hydronic heat source, such as a Knight boiler, ensures that the storage vessel is at a sufficient temperature to simultaneously generate domestic hot water and meet hydronic heating demands. As demand for space heating is initialized, the Strato-Therm+ acts as a hydraulic separator, decoupling the system demand from the boiler output. The cooler water in the bottom of the tank allows for greater collector efficiency and greater opportunity for solar thermal heat generation.

Warranty information: Limited warranty covers the heat exchanger(s), tank, and component parts for leakage or other malfunction caused by defects in materials and/or workmanship. It extends to the first owner as long as the unit remains installed at its original place of installation. Heat exchanger(s) are warranted against tube leakage for five years; solar storage tanks are warranted against tank leakage for five years; parts are warranted for one year.
