Discuss Is there a leak sealing fluid for thermal solar? in the Renewable Energy area at PlumbersForums.net
There's dried residue all over the pump station and about 6 x comp fittings, so if thats a little snap shot of the overall system, i assume theyll be more!! And as IDCHAPPY mentioned it's not the first time i've seen them on thermal solar systems filled with glycol.Lol i thought you meant one or two ,sounds like them all.
The problem is the massive expansion and contraction changes from 150°C down to -4°C can happen in one day - think clear skies, bright sunny winters day, freezing cold nights...Does all solar leak? seen 2 installs and they both had seeps at the compression fittings...
they are chatting about solar systems filled with water/glycol, no oil involved villageMy missus has just informed me that sealing against oil is best achieved with an anaerobic sealant. So if you chaps/gals who install solar are dealing with oil? then Loctite is not an option. Sorry
