AE Series
Collectors
AE Series “Flat Plate” Solar Thermal Collectors, manufactured in the United
States by Alternate Energy Technologies (AET); are designed to meet the
needs of any system from 30 to 50,000 gallons. Collectors can be used to
provide hot water, space heating, air conditioning, and industrial process
heating.

energy transmission of 90%. Iron content: 0.01% iron oxide. Thickness: 1/8” or
5/32".
Glazing Gasket: UV resistant, durable EPDM U-Channel with molded corners.
Prohibits water penetration and assures long life.
Grommet: Extruded Silicone with 1-1/8" bore.
Collector Frame: 6063 -T6 Aluminum extrusion (1/8” wall thickness) with
electrostatic paint finish and integral mounting system.
Collector Batten: 6005-T5 Aluminum extrusion (1/8” wall thickness) with electrostatic paint finish.
Corner Bracket: Architectural aluminum angles, internal to the collector box, with aircraft-grade pin grip rivets to
ensure high stability.
Backsheet: Type 3105-H14 aluminum sheet, MB-40 medium bronze, 0.019" stucco embossed, pop-riveted to
aluminum frame.
Fasteners: 5056 Aluminum rivets secure the backsheet. Batten screws are 18-8 Stainless Steel, 10-24 x 3/8", hex
head, with black oxide coating.
Insulation: Foil-faced Poly-isocyanurate closed cell board insulation, 1" thick (R-6.7), with ¾” Foil-faced
poly-isocyanurate board in sidewalls (R-5).
Absorber Plate: Exclusively manufactured by ThermafinTM Mfg., a 100%
copper absorber plate. High frequency forge welded for a permanent
molecular bond between tube and fin. No soldered or crimped joints to
fail from expansion and contraction. Warrantied for 30 years on fin-to-tube
joint.
Absorber Coating:
Crystal Clear Selective Coating, exclusively by
ThermafinTM Mfg., formulated for high absorptivity (α>0.96) and low
emissivity (ε<0.08).

Dr ainback Reservoirs
Drainback Systems with Reservoirs
All AET Drainback Systems require a Drainback Reservoir.
Reservoirs come with or without a heat exchanger, depending on the drainback system type. Tanks are constructed
from stainless steel. Both types or reservoirs are available in
10, 15, and 20 gallon sizes.
5 Year Warranty on all Drainback Tanks
All reservoirs come with site glass, fittings, pressure relief
valve, AND buffer/inhibitor solution. A tank stand is available
for 10 gallon reservoirs.

The heat exchanger is unique in its design of containing 11 fins per inch that allow for the maximum
amount of surface area for the heat exchange process. The EagleSun Drainback reservoir provides an
98% heat transfer, which is the highest on the market today.

CHOOSING A SYSTEM
Drainback System
MANUFACUTRER RECOMMENDED SYSTEM !
Advantages:
 Maintenance free
 Excellent reliability
 Protects from freezing
 Protects from overheating
 Fewer system components
 Non pressurized
 Eliminates failure prone system components
 Water can be used as a safe and efficient heat transfer fluid
Drainback Systems in depth
AET offers three types of drainback systems:
DB
DX
DBS
Details of each system are provided on pages 28-35
24
Pressurized Glycol
Advantages:
 Protects from freezing
 System is suited for installations where required drainback
piping slope cannot be achieved
 Requires only one tank and one pump
 Requires smaller pump due to pressurized system design
 PV powered DC pump can be used
Considerations:

Glycol must be tested every year and replaced as necessary

Less efficient than the drainback systems
 Requires manual action for overheating protection
 Some system components require replacement over time
 Local codes may require double wall heat exchanger decreasing
Direct Pressurized
Advantages:
 Most efficient and least expensive active solar system
 Requires only one tank and one pump
 Requires smaller pump due to pressurized system design
 PV powered DC pump can be used
Considerations:
 No freeze protection: cannot be installed where freezing may occur
 Cannot use where water is hard or PH is not neutral
 Prone to scaling and corrosion as potable water runs through collectors
 Requires manual action for overheating protection
 Some system components require replacement over time

To chose the right Drainback System, follow these two easy steps:
STEP 1: Find the installation site climate zone from the map below: A-F
26
STEP 2: Using the number of Bedrooms in the home, find the correct
system from the chart below:
3 Bedroom Homes
Climate A = DBS-80-40 / DBS-80-42
Climate B = DBS-80-40 / DBS-80-42
Climate C = DBS-80-52
Climate D = DBS-80-64
Climate E = DBS-80-64 / DBS-80-80
Climate F = DBS-80-80
4+ Bedroom Homes
Climate A = DBS-120-64
Climate B = DBS-120-64
Climate C = DBS-120-80
Climate D = DBS-120-80
Climate E = DBS-120-96
Climate F = DBS-120-96
NOTE: The system type above could also be a DB or a DX Drainback System;
an I or IPV Indirect Glycol System; or a D or DPV Direct System
Disclaimer: These systems are a “rule of thumb” created for due south installations or up to 25 degrees off. Anything more than 25
degrees off due south, or if the roof pitch is + or – 15 degrees off your latitude, go up a collector size.
Ideal installation is flush mount. The collectors are designed to look like skylights. Please keep aesthetics in mind when installing solar
collectors for the future of our industry!

EagleSun™ Pool Heating
46
Benefits
Swim Longer
Installing a solar pool heating system will increase,
sometimes even double, the amount of time your
swimming pool can be comfortably used during the
year.
Economical
When compared to heating your pool with other
methods, solar heating can pay for itself in
as little as 3 years.
Environmentally Safe
Solar Pool heaters use solar energy to
provide a clean energy alternative to
conventional heating sources that pollute
the environment.
Maintenance Free
Once the panels are installed, you can
relax in your warm pool without any
additional maintenance or cost involved.
Quality
With up to 35% more polypropylene and UV
stabilizers than any other manufacturer, EagleSun™
Pool Panels keep your pool heated longer and have
a longer life expectancy.
Hurricane Tested
EagleSun™ panels can withstand hurricane force
winds of 159.6 mph!
Guarantee
EagleSun™ Products are backed by a
comprehensive 10 Year Limited Lifetime Warranty to ensure years of enjoyment.

Pool Heating System
1. Efficiently absorbed heat is transferred
to the pool water circulating through the
collectors.
5. EPDM Collector Hoses: Join the solar
collectors together and connect the supply
and return piping to the collector array.
2. Manual Control: Turns the pool heating
system on or off as required.
6. Long Mounting Straps: Used to secure
the solar collectors to the roof.
3. Pump and Filter: Circulate clean water
to the pool and collector when required.
7. Header Straps: Installed on the top
header of the solar collectors only. Used to
bear the weight of the collector.
4. Check Valve: Used to prevent back flow
8. Stainless Clips: Used to secure the
circulation in the solar collectors at night
mounting straps to the roof. Roof sealant
and allows for sustained drainage.
is used to assure the integrity of the roof.

Features
Most pool heating panels are designed to be repaired...
Eagle Sun Pool Panels are designed to last.
The majority of solar pool heaters are designed with
“individual” round flow tubes so that if a tube leaks it can
easily be plugged. Some manufacturers even state in
their warranty that a damaged system will be repaired if
possible. In most cases a “repair” is nothing more than
a plug. The problem with this is that a plugged panel is
much less efficient or effective at heating your pool.
Another problem with the design of most solar pool
heating systems is that the shape and thickness of the
flow tube walls do not allow for prolonged expansion
or contraction that occurs during seasonal temperature
changes or extreme weather such as freezing.
This patented flat panel design is proven to be more
efficient and more durable than other solar pool heaters.
Here’s why:
Absorb more heat
Eagle Sun Pool collectors are visibly thicker than any other
pool heating collector because we use up to 35% more
raw materials in our panels. This attracts more heat.
Reduce heat loss
Eagle Sun flow tubes are connected so that they stay warm longer.
Other panels can cool rapidly during windy conditions because the
“individual” flow tubes aren’t insulated by each other.
Last longer
The extra material in our panels allows for greater expansion and
contraction, provides extra UV protection and
prevents weak spots.
Prevent freeze damage (covered under
warranty)
Because water expands by approximately
9% when turning to ice, the strain put on a
solar panel’s flow channel can be devastating.
Our pool heaters, however, are designed to
withstand internal freezing better than any
other panel on the market today. As the
picture to the right illustrates, the 2 keys to
our durability are the thickness of our panels
and the shape of the flow channels.
