StorMaxx Solar Hot Water Tanks

The volume of storage tanks depends on type of tank.  Every tank is different and has own advantage in specific area (domestic, commercial, industrial). In our offer you can find small tank for domestic usage to the huge tanks which can be used for industrial projects. Standard store tank volume depending of the number of people:
  • for 2-4 people - 80 Gallons
  • for 3-6 people - 120 Gallons
If there will be more direct question, don't hesitate to contact to the engineering team. The volume of the tank starts form 50 gallons  to 5000 gallons. Everyone will find suitable tank for own needs.
There are some variables which determine the right size of solar tank:
  • Annual Heating Costs
  • Number Of Collectors Installed
  • Water Consumption Daily/ Weekly/ Monthly
  • Required Water Temperature
  • Space Availability
If you need more information you can contact the engineering team, they help to you to choose right tank or ask some additional questions.
In our offer there are two series StorMaxx SE and StorMaxx ETEC, which have an possibility to provide additional heat form electric heat exchanger.  These solutions are used in situation, when the water temperature is under the expectations. This system helps solar system to heat water inside the tank using the electric power.
The dimensions depends on a type/model of the tank. Before you start, check on the website the dimensions of tank which you choose. Every parameter is included (diameter, height ) in the tank features and also in the specification.  These dimension can help you to check/measure the space availability for your new tank.
The weight of tank depends on a size/volume of product.  These information are included in datasheets and on every product size. Remember that weight is without water inside the tank, so you will have to add some extra weight. Tank should stand on a flat concrete surface and can be connected to the ground using seismic anchor kit. The concrete pad should be 6" thick made with concrete minimum strength of 3000 PSI. Also you can installed tank on another surface, but it should resist weight of a whole system and has a optimal strength like a concrete.
There number of collectors mainly depends of the size (volume) and required water temperature.  For small installations (50 G - 120G) are usually installed 2-3 collectors.  The volume of the tank  is a main factor in solar collector connections. Information about that are included  on each product site of tank or if it not available please contact to the engineering team.
