Solapac - Solar Hot Water Systems

Keywords: Hot Water

A flat plate collector collects its heat on a flat plane and this heat is then transferred to the hot water tank, normally through copper pipes. It doesn’t concentrate the sun’s rays by reflecting and concentrating the radiation, as with an evacuated tube. It has a toughened plastic exterior which traps the heat and insulates the plate, giving great efficiency and durability. It can be used for retrofit, closed-loop and open-loop systems and is probably the most popular collector type. It is basically an insulated box that contains an absorber, and is glazed for efficiency.

Solapac - Solar Hot Water Systems | Collectors | Evacuated Tube

Our new range of vacuum tube collectors consists of vacuum tubes with two concentric glass tubes between which there is high grade vacuum providing a perfect insulation, thus these collectors withstand frost up to -18 C. In the inner part of the tube there is a U- shape copper tube with an aluminum fin in which the water of the system is heated. This type of reflector improves the efficiency as it concentrates the sun radiation on the tube.
