Taco Inc.: Solar Thermal Pumps, Components

May 3, 2010


A family of solar pumping products and technology is an ideal fit for a wide variety of solar thermal applications, says the company. The Solar Pumping Station has five easy connections to make: two for the solar collector(s), two for the storage tank’s heat exchanger, and one for the expansion tank. The unit continually adjusts pump speed to maximize solar collector output and efficiency. The unit is pre-engineered, pre-plumbed, pre-wired, and easy to install. The Solar X-Pump Block combines a stainless steel flat plate heat exchanger with two bronze circulators and a solar differential temperature control, which can be used for installations where adding a solar storage tank is not feasible or where the solar storage tank does not have an internal heat exchanger. The variable-speed solar pump line includes circulators with integral solar differential temperature controls. All wiring for power and sensors is done directly to the circulator while the LED status pane makes it easy to check functionality. Dip switch settings offer easy setup.
