Description

Thanks to the concept of the vacuum tube, heat loss is minimized to practically zero.

 

The yield curve on this collector is flat, therefore the U pipe collector is especially suitable for use in less favorable climates.

 

The vacuum tubes that make up this collector are able to capture diffused light on a cloudy day, enabling it to heat the water to usable levels.

 

Due to its dry connection, breakage or destruction of the collector is avoided since there is no fluid circulating through the tubes.

 

The aesthetics of the unit lends itself well to an easy integration with the architecture of most buildings.

 

U Pipe Technology enables an inclination angle from 15 to 90º, being able to project easily to countless applications such as production of hot water, pool heating, climate control, etc.

 

This collector consists of a series of small, individual boilers (each tube), so that repairs and replacements can be performed easily and inexpensively, simply by replacing the defective tube without stopping the installation.

 

The U Pipe collector enables the measuring of the temperature output without needing to install additional elements into the water circuit. It has an opening for inserting the sensor directly into the output.

 

This collector has some exceptional qualities when it comes to adverse weather conditions, withstanding impacts of hail of 25 mm. and winds up to 120 Km/h.

 

The aesthetic form of the U Pipe provides an easy integration into any architecture.

 

The collector U pipe enables the measurement of the outlet temperature without installing additional elements in the water circuit, and having an opening for insertion of the sensor directly in the output.

 

This is an extraordinarily versatile and efficient model, which shows the potential of research and quest for quality that offers Solar Innova.
