Features

A solar system can reduce utility costs for water heating up to 70%. The American Solar Booster Tanks are a direct replacement option to extend the life of your solar water heating system. Both direct and indirect booster tanks are available to work with almost any system.

Solar Direct Booster Tank

For use in an open loop system or a closed loop system with an external heat exchanger.

A. O. Smith direct solar water heaters are designed for installation as a part of a direct (open loop) solar water heating system or for use with external heat exchangers in closed loop systems. Available in 65, 80 and 119-gallon capacities these models provide storage for the hot water produced by the solar collectors and a supplementary electric heating element that maintains consistent water temperature during periods when solar energy is not available.

  • Multiple Connection Options for Installation Flexibility Side and top connections for open loop systems or closed loop systems using an external heat exchanger
  • Electrical 4500 watt heating element - long lasting low-watt density design spreads wattage over larger surface area to prolong element life and maximize efficiency
  • Pre-wired for surface mount temperature sensor (sensor supplied separately)
  • Tank Construction Glasslined Steel Tank – glasslining protects against corrosion to maximize tank life
  • 2-inch thick “Environmentally-Friendly” Non-CFC Foam insulation (R16 Value) reduces standby heat loss
  • Anode Rod Anode rod with stainless steel core protects tank against corrosion
  • CSA Certified and ASME Rated T&P Relief Valve
  • Durable Tamper-Resistant Brass Drain Valve
  • Compliance Units are UL and cUL listed to UL 174 Standard for Household Electric Storage Tank Water Heaters and CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 110-M90; Complies with California legislation AB 1953 and Vermont legislation Act 193 that limits the lead content in plumbing fixtures that come into contact with drinking water to a maximum of 0.25%.
  • Standard 6-Year Limited Tank and Parts Warranty
  • 3-year tank and 1-year parts warranty when installed in a commercial application

Solar Indirect Booster Tank

Feature an internal single wall coil-style heat exchanger for use in a closed loop system.

A. O. Smith indirect solar water heaters are designed for installation as part of a closed loop solar water heating system. Available in 80 and 120-gallon capacities these models provide storage for the hot water produced by the solar collectors and a supplementary electric heating element that maintains consistent water temperature during periods when solar energy is not available.

  • Single wall internal heat exchange coil for the most efficient heat transfer from solar panels
  • Suitable for propylene glycol heat transfer fluid with corrosion inhibitor
  • Long-Lasting Low-Watt Density Copper Heating Element
  • Low-watt density design spreads wattage over larger surface area to prolong element life and help maximize energy-efficiency
  • Prewired for surface mount temperature sensor (sensor supplied separately)
  • 2 Inch-Thick Environmentally Friendly Non-CFC Foam Insulation For High Energy-Efficiency
  • Glass Tank Coating Glass lining helps maximize tank life against corrosion and buildup
  • Diffuser Dip Tube Helps reduce lime and sediment buildup to maximize hot water output
  • Made from long-lasting PEX cross-linked polymer
  • Two Anode Rods Primary and secondary magnesium anodes with stainless steel core protect tank against corrosion longer than ordinary anodes
  • Factory Installed CSA Certified and ASME Rated T&P Relief Valve
  • Durable Tamper-Resistant Brass Drain Valve
  • Pex-Lined, Heat Trap Nipples for Efficiency
  • Codes and Standards Complies with current editions of: UL Standard for Household Electric Storage Tank Water Heaters, UL 174; Packaged Solar Domestic Hot Water Systems (Liquid-to-Liquid Heat Transfer) For All-Season Use, F379.1-09; Packaged Solar Domestic Hot Water Systems for Seasonal Use, F379.2-09 and ICC Codes and HUD Standards
  • Standard 6-Year Limited Tank and Parts Warranty
  • 3-year tank and 1-year parts warranty when installed in a commercial application
