10 Reasons to Use Calpak Mark 5

If you’re looking at investing in a solar water heater, you might be tempted to go for a relatively inexpensive brand and save up, but is cheap really cheaper? Will your water heater deliver what it promises? This can be summed up to a fairly common phrase in the business: Cheap is Expensive.

While buying a cheap solar water heater may make you save money now, it will most probably cost you a lot of unnecessary expenditures in maintenance, repairs, or even the purchase of a whole new heater in the future.

With over 44 years of experience in the conversion of sunlight into thermal energy, Calpak is uniquely positioned to offer a guaranteed top-quality solar water heater that is sure to deliver on your investment. This heater is the Calpak Mark 5.

Here are 10 Reasons why to Use Calpak Mark 5:

1. Double Wall Frame

Common collector: 0.8mm thickness

Mark 5: 2.4mm thickness

Being three times thicker, the double-wall frame ensures significantly lower thermal losses for a more performing heater and stronger overall construction.

2. Absorber with 11 Copper Pipes

Common collector: 7-8 copper pipes with 0,3mm absorber thickness and 70-75% optical efficiency

Mark 5: 12 copper pipes laser welded on a 0,5mm full Plate aluminum absorber (High Selective (a>95%, e<3,5%)) with 80% optical efficiency

Mark 5 has 12 top-quality copper wires from Halcor for a more efficient heat transfer to the tank.
