European-made quality solar hot water storage at a competitive price
San Jose CA May 24, 2010 — Free Hot Water, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of commercial solar hot water (SHW) systems, announced that it has signed an exclusive U.S. distribution agreement with Baymak, a division of BDR Thermea, a worldwide manufacturer of solar thermal storage tanks.
“Our exclusive U.S. distribution agreement with Baymak allows Free Hot Water to give commercial and residential solar thermal customers the best quality solar storage tanks available in the market today for a competitive price.”
The agreement with Free Hot Water comes at a time when both Baymak and Free Hot Water are increasing their individual product lines. Baymak is expanding its enameled solar hot water tank production line, producing over 175,000 tanks per year.
Similarly, Free Hot Water is expanding its line of Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) approved OG-100 solar hot water collectors for commercial applications. In addition, Free Hot Water recently expanded its catalog of residential SRCC OG-300 solar hot water kits.
Free Hot Water’s co-founder, Gal Moyal, added that solar storage tanks are crucial for modern solar hot water systems. “When Free Hot Water designs a commercial SHW system for apartment buildings or other large commercial customers, the storage system is as important as our solar collectors.”
Using a water pump and Baymak’s single-coil heat exchanger system, solar thermal energy is transferred to the water inside the storage tank, essentially becoming a type of solar hot water battery. Then at night or on cloudy days, the solar storage tank provides free hot water to the apartment units or other large facilities.
Baymak hot water solar storage tanks are compatible with all SRCC OG-100 solar hot water collectors sold in the U.S. Under its arrangement with Baymak, Free Hot Water will distribute 400 liter, 500 liter, and 1000 liter single coil heat-exchange storage tanks throughout the U.S.
Burrowes said, “Our exclusive distribution agreement gives Free Hot Water and its partners a solid foothold in a very competitive market.”
