Build Your Own Solar Water Heater

Build Your Own Solar Water Heater

You Can Easily Build Your Own Solar Water Heater and Save up to 33% Off Your Electric Bill Every Month While Helping the Environment. Solar hot water systems produce clean, non-polluting energy. A single hot water system can offset the equivalent of approximately 40% of the carbon dioxide emissions of a modern passenger car. They are safe for our environment, safe for plants, safe for animals and safe for all of us. By following the step by step directions contained within our guide, you will be able to build and install your solar water heating system. A solar water heater poses no threat to the operation of your existing water heater. In fact, installing a solar water heater can prolong the life of your conventional water heater.

Ultra High Efficiency

Direct contact water heaters are very thermal efficient (hot water energy output fuel energy in). In all combustion devices water is a by-product of the burning process, because oxygen and hydrogen from the air combine to make H2O. This water is vaporized immediately from liquid to gaseous form in the heat of firing. This phase change of water from liquid to gas is a cooling process and accounts for about a 12 combustion efficiency loss. Direct contact water heaters super cool the combustion gasses below the point where this newly formed water vapor will re-condense back into liquid form. By returning the water back to a liquid state direct contact water heaters are able to reclaim all of the thermal energy that is normally lost out the stack of a traditional boiler. The phase change that steals energy by changing from liquid to gas returns heat energy when the gas is returned back into liquid form. By transferring heat in this way direct contact water heaters are capable of achieving...

Water Quality And Emissions

Exhaust emissions from a direct contact water heater is typically lower than the emission rates of a boiler firing with the same burner at the same firing rate. This does not make the units low NOx emitters, but it does allow certain low NOx technologies to work even more effectively in direct contact heaters than in comparable boilers.

Plant Power kW Net acon

This same small power plant could also be equipped with a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and a hot-water heater for cogeneration application. Plant performance estimates are provided in Figure 2 for the case in which the HRSG water-heater combination is positioned at the recuperator exhaust exit Again, these estimates are the result of a design-point analysis in which the SOFC system consists of a single SOFC submodule, but the gas turbine and heat recovery system sizing is variable. The features of a fixed plant design would depend on economics. HRSG steam conditions at each point on the curves were fixed at 10 atm (abs), 10 C superheat, and the exhaust temperature at the water heater exit at 70 C. Hot water temperatures in the 120-140 C range will be achieved depending upon the water mass flow rate. It is noted that the thermal performance of the heat recovery system is affected by the arrangement of equipment. For example, higher steam temperatures could be achieved by...

General Service Pipes and Pumping

Many large passenger ships are provided with a large low-pressure distilling plant for producing fresh water during the voyage, as the capacities required would otherwise need considerable tank space. This space is better utilized to carry oil fuel, improving the ship's range. Independent tanks supplying the fresh water required for drinking and culinary purposes, and fresh washing water, etc., may be taken from the double bottom tanks, the pumps for each supply being independent also. Hot fresh water is supplied initially from the cold fresh water system, through a non-return valve into a storage type hot water heater fitted with heater coils, and then the heated water is pumped to the outlet.

Codes and Specifications

Specs for a house might include the drawing scale to which the construction drawings were created. They may require the use of a particular grade of lumber or specify the thickness of insulation to be installed in the attic. Specs inform someone which color of carpet to buy or from what manufacturer to order the water heater.

254 Controls and Communications Dispatchability

The characteristics of Stirling generators allow them to be located inside homes, businesses, and similar environments where IC generators would be intolerable because of their high noise and maintenance levels. The most popular application of Stirling generators is in micro-cogeneration systems. In these systems, the generator is coupled to a household boiler (a water heater for hydronic space heating), so electricity and hot water are produced simultaneously from the same fuel. Stirling micro-cogeneration systems are gaining popularity in Northern Europe, where they are connected to the grid and use natural gas. The micro-cogeneration system is treated much like any other home heating system as far as the consumer is concerned. The systems can be configured to supply electricity only when heat is called for, or they can be programmed to dump unwanted heat when only electricity is needed.

212Power Conversion

Electronically or electrically controlled voltage can be used as the power source for power supplies, current controllers for motors, and heating. For systems with high dynamic rates, power transistors can be used to apply voltage. For systems with low dynamic rates, relays can be used to switch power on and off. A simple example of such a system is an electric water heater. Pressure-based flow-control power converters often use valves to vary pressure applied to a fluid-flow system. Chemical power conversion uses chemical energy such as combustible fuel to heat a plant. A simple example of such a system is a natural-gas water heater.

Direct contact water heaters consist of bodies sometimes made 100 out of stainless steel using a vertical hollow chamber in which water is sprayed at the top of this vertical chamber. The upper portion of this vertical chamber is filled with stainless steel balls (or other shapes) which provide a large heat transfer surface area for the heat of the rising exhaust gasses to be conducted into the water. This heat transfer zone is approximately 24 to 36 deep and almost all heat transfer in a direct contact water heater occurs in this area.

Feedforward Control

A competent operator could use feed-forward to offset the changes in inlet water temperature of a direct contact water heater. Detecting a change in inlet water temperature, they would increase or decrease the heat rate to annul the change. The same compensation could be done automatically with an inlet temperature detector designed to initiate the proper corrective response in the heat value.

212 Introduction

The term natural gas industry includes the people, equipment, and systems starting in the fields where the wells are located and the natural gas is produced. It includes other field tasks as gathering, treating, and processing. Transportation to storage or to interstate or intrastate pipelines for further transportation to the market area storage, or to the distribution system for delivery to the consumer and the burner tip, are part of the system. The burner tip might be in a boiler, hot water heater, combustion engine, or a chemical reactor to name a few of the many uses for natural gas.

Hotel Service Pumps

A distiller-feed pump takes suction from a sea chest and supplies seawater to the distilling plant's first-stage flash chamber. This water often passes through various heat exchangers, such as a distillate cooler, distillate condensers, air-ejector condenser, and sea-water heater before it enters the flash chamber. The distiller-feed pump is usually located sufficiently below the vessel's waterline so it operates with a flooded suction.
