AEL purpose-made swimming pool heat exchangers are available in a choice of three models.
Each AEL standard range swimming pool heat exchanger has been designed to heat a pool of a specific volume to 28.5°C over a 72-hour period.
To avoid site specific problems it is important that a structural engineer is consulted to assess the best procedure to fill and heat any swimming pool from empty or cold.
If a pool is heated too quickly, the difference between the temperature of the water and the pool shell can result in thermal shock causing structural and tiling failure to occur. Thermal shock occurs when a thermal gradient causes different parts of the pools structure to expand at different times causing stresses and strains on the structure. When these stresses eventually overcome the strength of the structural material they may well cause cracks to appear
All of the AEL heat exchangers are robust and purpose made to cope with the corrosive atmosphere and water in a swimming pool environment. They are compact in size and each type / model are the most efficient method of providing instantaneous heat transfer between fluids in any system designed to heat a swimming pool.
AEL has developed a free tool to help specifiers when it comes to selecting the right system and getting an instant quotation for that system. AEL has standardised a large selection of Heat Exchanger duties and created tailored calculators for the following, which can be found on the company's website:
