This kit contains everything you need to add a high quality solar water heater to your boat. If your boat water heater does not have a built-in heat exchanger but you still want to install a freeze protected (closed loop) system this kit is for you. Included is a compact stainless steel heat exchanger (316 alloy) and all other parts required for a closed loop system. The antifreeze in the solar loop is heated by Heliatos MH-38 solar water heating panel. This panel has unbreakable twinwall polycarbonate glazing that can withstand hail and other debris. Its strong aluminum frame makes it tough yet lightweight, only weighing 12 lbs.
The MH-38 panels include special features to prevent corrosion even in the harshest marine environments:
Powder-coated frame and backing, gives the appearance of white enamel
Zinc-phosphate internal corrosion protection
Stainless steel hardware
These panels have unbreakable twinwall polycarbonate glazing, and a strong aluminum frame, yet only weighs 12 lbs.
