Richmond, California (PRWEB) October 28, 2011
California based solar hot water equipment manufacturer Heliodyne has now received certification by The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) on the Commercial Solar Station, otherwise recognized as the HCOM. This signifies a major milestone not just for Heliodyne, but for the solar water heating business in general as the HCOM is the initial commercial scale pre-assembled heat transfer appliance that carries the IAPMO certification.
The HCOM is a packaged closed-loop heat transfer appliance for accommodating large solar hot water projects of up to 100 flat plate collectors, although nonetheless bigger projects can combine HCOMs in parallel for limitless sizing potential. The HCOM was engineered by Heliodyne in order to supply installers a factory assembled, plug and play appliance that can work universally with any commercial project lowering the design complexity and time related with larger installations. ?Commercial solar thermal systems can be complicated to the average solar skilled or plumbing contractor. The HCOM eliminates a lot of the sizing and engineering guesswork generating larger solar commercial projects an less difficult job.? comments Nicole Cusick, head Engineer at Heliodyne. ?And now with the unit becoming IAPMO certified, the engineer and installer on the project as properly as the inspector can trust that it has gone via rigorous testing and inspection to pass all UPC code compliances and needs.?
The HCOM contains all main balance of system components that compromise a standard commercial solar water heating program. Some notable functions of the HCOM contain ?plug and play? installation, touch screen interface, advanced controller for remote net based monitoring and information storage, single/double wall heat exchanger and integrated variable speed pumps for system energy optimization. ?We?re seeing a growing demand in solar thermal commercial projects.? says Ole Pilgaard, President of Heliodyne. ?We?re confident that with the simplicity of installing the HCOM, commercial jobs will not only be a easier job for knowledgeable installers, but also a viable option for much less experienced installers new to commercial solar?
