Rheem Premier Hiline is an indirect close coupled system using natural thermosiphon principles to transfer energy from the collectors into the attached 300L stainless steel storage tank and provides full frost protection.
Premier Hiline utilises the SPA2000 collector which provides good performance in all locations and is better suited to poor water quality areas.
Close coupled collectors and stainless steel 300 litre tank
Collectors should ideally face due north (in the southern hemisphere), however, a system installed with the collectors facing as far as north-east and north-west will experience an approximate 5% drop in operating efficiency.
Limitations on Use
For installation with a solar storage tank with a drain back heat exchanger
Collectors should be inclined at approximately the latitude angle, however, 15° either way is acceptable, but not less than 10° from the horizontal. For flat roof installations, Rheem can supply variable pitch frames suitable for either one or two collectors with pre-set pitch angles of 15°, 20° and 25°
Metallic flow and return lines only must be used between the solar storage tanks and the collectors
