Lightweight manifold design
Choice of Stainless Steel or Anodized Aluminium mounting frames
Extremely reliable header design due to only 6 brazing joints
Contoured header for turbulent flow even at low flow-rates
All glass wool insulation for high temperature stability
Patented heat transfer fin design for optimal heat transfer
Long term stability under extreme conditions
Extreme cold (freeze protected heat pipes)
Coastal regions (salt spray)
Harsh UV radiation (UV stabilized components)
High Winds (up to category C cyclone)
Snow loadingSolar Collector Operation
Step 1: The absorber coating on the inner glass tube absorbs sunlight and converts it into heat.
Step 2: Steam forms inside heat pipe which transfers heat rapidly up to the manifold.
Step 3: A pump circulates water or heat transfer fluid through the header pipe, carrying heat back to the
Storage tank. Gradually throughout the day the tank is heated up.
