Rinnnai E-Frost Solar Roof Panels
The Rinnai E-Frost Solar Panel is flat plate heat pipe collector made up of:
◦ A transparent cover
◦ A copper coated absorbing plate attached to water pipes
◦Insulation to reduce heat loss from back and sides of the absorber plate
It is constructed of marine grade aluminium casing, corrosion resistant and ideal for coastal areas. E-Frost solar panels are warranted against frost
damage caused by temperatures down to and including -15 °C where power is available to the system, and the system is configured for low temperature mode (factory default).
Rinnai have two solar systems utilising the E-Frost solar panels which qualify for the $500 EECA Energywise™ grant:
◦Rinnai Sunmaster™ Gas Boosted Solar System
◦Rinnai Sunmaster™ Electric Boosted Solar System
Requirements must meet the standards for Rinnai solar products (refer warranty information). Hard or aggressive water will need to be treated in order to use this product.
The flowing water pressure in the dwelling needs to exceed the height of the solar panels. For example, the highest point of the solar collector is 7 m above the incoming water,
and then the water pressure needs to exceed 70 kPa to keep the panels full.
Roof pitch and condition
E-Frost solar panels perform best at roof pitches > 20°. At lesser pitches performance will be degraded. Any damage to the roof must be repaired prior to installation of the solar panels.
Pumped systems only (solar split hot water systems)
E-Frost panels are not suitable for close coupled hot water solar systems.
