solar water heaters have been the most attractive option for hot water compared to forced circulation systems, because of ease of operation without the aid of external pumping and less maintenance cost.
Batch heaters and thermosyphon
work fine in more temperate climates, but here up north, we have settled on flat plate collectors with a nontoxic antifreeze solution which gets circulated through a heat exchanger mounted on a storage tank (see diagram on page 34).

The present work is carried out for the performance prediction of thermosyphon
solar water heating (SWH) system with flat plate collector (FPC) using an ANN model.
cooler reduces the amount of water that must be cooled by evaporation in the cooling tower, thus reducing water consumption.
Application of functionalized nanofluid in thermosyphon

Kalogirou (2004) reported on the performance and environmental life cycle analysis of thermosyphon
solar water heaters.
solar hot-water systems have been widely used in Israel since the early 1960s.
One well-known example is that of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, which employs a system of thermosyphon
cooling devices that keep the vertical support members permanently frozen into the permafrost.
They implemented two identical models of the manifold chamber of a thermosyphon
heat-pipe ETSWH in the laboratory where the two models are built with same dimensions to observe and compare the behavior of the two models when exposed to the same similar rates of heat input.
