Making Great Progress!!!
We’re moving right along on our Fluid Handling System for the solar hot water system at the Warrior Transition Unit. Sam is measuring for the collector pump pipe penetration through the cavity in the first picture below. The second photo shows the “almost complete” sheet metal jacket including the door over the front cavity. This cavity provides insulation over the tank piping that most designers and installers leave naked. This heat retention method was the basis for one of my patents. Once the solar thermal collectors capture the heat energy, you want to take every precaution not to throw that energy away somewhere else in the system.
The tank for another military job comes tomorrow. Both forklifts are busted. Gonna be a long day. 😉
