MEGASUN Forced Circulation Solar Heating Systems

Ensure maximum performance with minimum cost with our high-standard forced circulation systems.

Why should we use a Solar Water Heating System?

A solar heating system is ecologically friendly. It is economical, simple to install, tasteful, effective and autonomous:
  • Ecologically friendly: with a forced circulation system Megasun 500 ltr. with 3 panel ST 2500 of 2.62 m2 /each system, the emissions of C02 avoided annually are equivalent to the fuel emissions of a car having run for 10.000 km
  • Economical: will decrease your cost for energy by 70 -100% because the burnerand electric resistance will not need to operate for at least 7-12 months of the year, depends on the sun radiation of each area and the size of the system.
  • Simple: The well-studied selection of materials of MEGASUN make. Its Installation safe and easy, reducing the time needed for its installation to a minimum.
  • Tasteful: The excellent exterior design of the MEGASUN collectors in combination with their well-studied support base, offer the possibility of a tangent Installation on tiled roofs matching aesthetically with every architectural building design.
  • Effective and Autonomous: You have hot water at will 7-12 months per year. During winter time you secure the pre-heating of the water, and the extra hot water needed is secured from conventional energy.

The forced circulation system MEGASUN consists of the following components:

  • Boiler with one tube heat exchanger (type BL1) or with two tube heat exchangers (type BL2) on a wooden palette and wrapped with stretch film.
  • One (1), Two (2), or Three (3) collectors which are protected during their transport with 4 plastic elbows of hard plastic.
  • Accessories (except pipes and wires), the hydraulic kit, expansion pot, differential thermostat, antifreeze liquid and various connection accessories.
  • Cardboard box with the metal plates of the support base, the screws, moly plugs, the bolts etc.

Flat Plate Solar Collector Models ST-2000 & ST-2500 SELECTIVES (Titanium)



01 5

Flat plate solar collector, firmly built, of new technology suitable for all forced circulation solar systems. The production process and the raw materials that are used produce a high thermal energy efficiency even during periods with insufficient radiation.


The MEGASUN solar collectors are produced in two sizes.The model ST-2000 (2,10 m2) and ST-2500 (2,61m2), with blue titanium selective coating, which can be used either in solo or in combinations to cover all of the requirements of solar systems.

Basic Technical Characteristics

Frame made from anodized aluminum, which is extremely durable to adverse climatic conditions (high humidity – coastal areas).
Strong side and back insulation (20mm glass wool and 35mm rock wool), minimize thermal losses in areas with low seasonal temperatures.
Special prismatic glass, resistant to hale (solar tempered glass).
Absorber made from aluminium treated with a high selective titanium coating. The selective titanium coating is ideal for regions with high diffused radiation and low temperatures, absorbing up to 16% more solar radiation in winter months compared to simple black chrome absorbers. This method of coating is non toxic and does not pollute the environment, while keeping stable its mechanical and optical properties during high and low temperatures.

Corrosion Protection

Inner cleaning of the tank with automated sand blasting (notchemically) resulting in a perfect adherence of the enamel. Food grade enamel quality applied with a “double direct” method and baked at 850° C. Extra corrosion protection is offered by magnesium rods that must be checked and replaced if necessary every 6 months to 2 years, depending on the quality of the water.

Backup Heating Source

If solar power is not sufficient to warm the water, a backupheating source can be used, either through an electric element or another heating source (central heating burner) that will be connected to the upper heat exchanger (BL2 models).Control of the electric element is made through the built in thermostat. It is recommended the thermostat be positioned between 50° C and 60° C during winter months and between 45° C and 50° C during summer.

Backup Heating Source Using the Second, UpperHeat Exchanger

Coil type heat exchanger, from heavy duty steel (type Tubo) integrated in the upper part of the tank, in order for the secondary heating source to heat only the upper part of the tank. Further technical data concerning the upper heat exchanger refer to the table concerning BL2 tanks.

Used as a pump, regulator and air venting valve in solar heating systems. With the hydraulic kit, hydraulic balancing, flow measurement and venting can be performed directly in the station. The built-in SETTER Inline UN allows the required quantity of fluid in the primary circuit to be exactly and simply set and checked. The continuous venting system meets the most demanding requirements and keeps the system free of air.

Systems which are correctly balanced hydraulically and air-free guarantee optimal energy extraction, and are thus more cost-effective in the sense of the energy-saving directives laid down by law. Using the scale, which is pre-calibrated for glycol, the technician can set and check the exact flow-rate values on-site. Neither training courses nor expensive measuring devices are required. Installation and venting can be carried out by one person working unaided.
