Clean Energy Ireland supplies four separate flashing kits for the following roof finish types.
- Irish Slate (Anthracite);
- Flat Tile (Anthracite);
- Curved Tile with Lead skirting (Anthracite);
- Irregular Tile with lead skirting (Dark brown).
They are manufactured in Austria to the following Austrian standards:
- ÖNORM B2221;
- ÖNORM B7219;
- ÖNORM B2110.
No additional lead, sealants or fixings are required.
The pump station comes in either Return string or combined Flow & Return. Each station has an easy fit mounting bracket as well as an expansion vessel stainless hose mounting bracket and isolating valve. The Pressure Valve (PRV) is rated at 6 bar, it conforms to DN4757 part 1, certified to TÜV Solar and complies to Directive PED 97/23/CEE.
The solar expansion vessel supplied with the Clean Energy Ireland Solar Heating Systems complies with DIN 4757 and is available in increments between 12 liters and 105 liters. The vessel is pre-charged to 2.5bar and has a max working pressure of 10bar. For accurately calculating the correct vessel size there is downloadable software available from the Clean Energy Ireland website which is from DIN 4807.
The Solar Discharge Vessel (SDV) is supplied with a mounting bracket and screws and comes with the necessary hose length and hose fittings to be quickly applied to the PRV. The SDV comes in 3 sizes:
- 5 Litres,
- 12 Litres,
- 18 Litres.
A brass drain is fitted to the bases of the SDV.
Stainless Steel is the preferred pipe used with solar installations. The pipe is manufactured from 316L grade stainless, allows rapid installation while italso prevents frequent joining of pipes. The following is the Area & Volume details of the solar pipe.
HT Armaflex is the preferred solar insulation; this insulation comes in a range of sizes to satisfy Part L building requirements. The insulation is UV and water resistant and can tolerate temperatures of up to 150 degrees C. The following are technical details on the HT Armaflex.
Tyfocor L is the preferred anti-freeze in solar systems. Tyfocor L is a non-toxic, virtually odourless, hygroscopic liquid. It is based on propylene glycol which poses no hazard to health and which may be used as a coolant or heat-transfer fluid in food processing and water purification applications. The corrosion inhibitors contained in Tyfocor L reliably protect the metals normally used in solar installations and other heating equipment against corrosion, ageing and deposits over long periods. Tyfocor L prevents the surfaces of heat exchangers from becoming fouled, and ensures consistently high thermal efficiency. The following files should be referred to before using this anti-freeze. The concentrate should be mixed to give a freezing point of -30 degrees C.
