VRK-Vacuum tube collector
1. TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
A special modular mounting system was developed for the series which makes it possible to realise standalone and roof-mounted solutions with equal ease.
Maximum efficiency is ensured irrespective of the sunlight's angle of incidence. The shape of the reflector corresponds with the form of the vacuum tube to achieve maximum efficiency. A mirror/absorber geometry was realised which brings about optimal concentration of the solar energy.
2. TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPONENTS
|Profiles:||Saltwater-proof aluminium profiles|
