- (1888PressRelease) October 20, 2022 – Recently, Hunan Harnitek Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Harnitek”) was awarded the Tick-Mark certificate for high energy efficiency of their solar assisted heat pump water heater issued by Intertek. It is the first enterprise in the water heater industry to obtain this certification.
This shows that the structure of the Harnitek solar-assisted heat pump system (hereinafter referred to as “Thermopod unit”) meets the requirements of the IEC 60335-2-40 standard, which not only meets the basic functions of the water heater, but also has excellent performance in terms of product safety and energy efficiency.
Intertek tests the thermal efficiency of solar collectors according to the ISO 9806:2017 standard, obtains the coefficient for calculating the heat output of the collector, and calculates the solar collector panel with reference to the test conditions and requirements in Table 3 and Table 4 of (EU) No 814/2013. The heat output of the device and the energy efficiency test according to the performance test section of EN 16147:2017, the following three important data are finally obtained:
1. The energy consumption of the Thermopod unit under sunlight is 46% less than that without sunlight;
2. When there is sunlight, its water heating energy efficiency is 186%;
3. The COP (DHW) value is 4.287 when the test environment temperature is 7℃ and there is sunlight.
Different from conventional heat pump water heaters, the Thermopod unit is designed for multiple heat sources, it can absorb heat energy through two external heat collecting panels and automatically provide you with hot water, all natural elements such as air, wind, rain, sunlight and even snow can be provide a heat source for it. Even when there is no sun or night or in bad weather conditions, it can absorb thermal energy and operate normally, which can greatly meet the actual needs of the European market.
At the same time, the Thermopod unit does not need a motor fan, and the noise level during operation is ≤41dB, which is like a whisper, which solves the noise problem that has always existed in traditional heat pump products.
Considering the convenience of installation and use, Thermopod units can be quickly compatible with existing hot water systems. No matter what system the user is currently using (natural gas, oil, electricity or liquefied petroleum gas system, etc.), just turn off the original system and add it to the hot water system, and it can be used directly.
As of today, the Thermopod unit has obtained CE, ERP, MCS and TICK MARK certificates, and is rated A in the ERP report, which is currently the highest rating among similar products.
With a strong engineering and design team, Harnitek has gathered leading heat pump technical talents engaged in the research and development of thermodynamic systems, continue to provide the best solution for the user’s heat pump application.
