SolarWave™ If you are looking for the proven performance of a GWS tank, SolarWave™ expansion tanks are the quality solution for
your solar system. SolarWave™ expansion tanks are designed to control the expansion and contraction of Solar Thermal Transfer
Fluids in Solar Heating Systems. The SolarWave™Series is intended for use on the Solar Liquid Loop of indirect thermal transfer
systems.
Solar Wave™tanks are built to the same stringent standards as Pressure Wave™ and Challenger™ tanks. They meet the demands
of solar collector systems for both thermal expansion and contraction in order to maintain safe and efficient operating pressures
within the solar liquid system.
A properly sized SolarWave™ tank will eliminate the need for recharging the system after periods of no use or in cases of extreme
temperature buildup. It will eliminate relief valve release of system liquid and maintain minimum operating pressures throughout
the system.
SolarWave™ Series expansion tanks have a large acceptance volume making them ideal for expansion and contraction control of
solar collector systems which operate under a wide range of pressure and temperature.
SolarWave™ tanks are quality tested at several stages on the production line to insure the structural integrity of every tank.
SolarWave™ tanks represent the best value for the investment and are the best quality solar expansion vessels available today.

If the temperature of the solar system has the potential to rise above the
evaporation point of the solar liquid a condenser chamber or coil is required
between the solar collector and SolarWave™ Series expansion tank in order to
control the maximum fluid temperature at the SolarWave™ tank.
