The following applies to all Slim Jim® (304 Stainless Steel) Geo Lake Plate® (316L Stainless Steel & Titanium) single plate or assembly(s) for proper operation and maximum performance:
FYI: Stabilizers can be added to allow the single Slim Jim® / Geo Lake Plate® or assembly to float just beneath the surface of the water until placed into position for submerging. Once positioned and flushing of the loop system has started, the stabilizer allows the plate/assembly(s) to slowly sink staying vertical until resting on the floor of the body of water. The stabilizer(s) are not removed after the installation is completed.
FYI: Systems on any earth/lake loop in extreme conditions may call for auxiliary heat. When the return water to the unit is ≤32°F and the unit calls for auxiliary heat, the auxiliary heat should be designed to stay engaged until the thermostat(s) is fully satisfied regardless of loop type. In most applications a relay (Fig 1) will need to be added to keep the supplemental heat engaged until the thermostat(s) are fully satisfied. This will allow for down time and loop regeneration. Additional information may be obtained on this subject by contacting AWEB Supply.
Note: Multiple handles are standard on the single Slim Jim® / Geo Lake Plate® or assembly(s). The handles are designed to support the empty weight of the plate only during handling and assembly. The handles are not designed for permanent suspension/hanging of the single plate or assembly(s) and may result in damage to the plate. Stainless Steel Hose Clamps or Stainless Steel Screw Bands can be used to attach the Stabilizer to the handles. Connecting the Stabilizers to the handles or support frame will keep it vertical during its decent as the plates are flushed until the assembly is resting on the floor of the body of water.
