Solaris Solaris Heat Transfer Fluids for Solar Thermal Systems

A range of fully inhibited heat transfer fluids, with antifreeze function, for Solar Thermal systems. Solaris solutions are installed in solar heated hot water systems of all sizes throughout the UK.

To prevent internal corrosion, scaling and biological fouling all Solaris products are formulated with reversibly evaporisable inhibitors which exceed ASTM D1384 standards.

  • Summary - Rating: ASuitable for solar heat recovery systems using evacuated tube, flat-plate and thermodynamic solar-panels, where a non-toxic classification is preferred. More efficient and more durable than MPG based fluids.

  • Efficiency - Rating: BHigh thermal conductivity and low viscosity at sub-zero temperatures, results in increased heat transfer efficiency and increased heat recovery.

  • Antifreeze - Rating: ACapable of providing freeze protection down to -50°C, subject to volume (concentration) used. Less volume is required to achieve the same freeze-point protection, when compared with MPG based fluids.

  • Corrosion Control - Rating: AAll Solaris heat transfer fluids are formulated with extreme temperature rated reversibly-evaporisable inhibitors, which are suitable for evacuated tube, flat plate and thermodynamic solar panels.

  • Toxicity - Rating: AClassified as Non-Toxic. Suitable for systems where low-toxicity is stipulated or preferred.

  • Density:1.02 - 1.15 g/cm³ depending on inhibitors

  • pH:7.5 - 9.0 depending on inhibitors

  • Boiling Point:>100°C

  • Characteristics:a clear, slightly viscous liquid. It is mildly sweet to the taste and has a non-pungent but characteristic aroma.

  • Available in: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 205 & 1000 litre containers and bulk tankers.
