Solar Thermal Vacuum Tube Systems
Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector. Each Thermomax collector consists of a highly insulated water manifold and a row of tubes. The vacuum inside each tube provides perfect insulation and therefore, protects the system from outside influences, such as cold and windy weather or high humidity. This vacuum insulation also ensures that the energy collected from the sun is very efficiently and effectively transferred into usable heat as there is minimal heat loss.
The unique ‘plug and play’ design of Thermomax HP200 and DF100 solar thermal collectors makes installation quick and easy. There is no need for heavy lifting equipment as tubes can be carried onto the roof individually. The collector is fixed to the roof by easy-fit roof brackets, which are simply fixed to the rafter. The design of the Varisol product offers significant benefits to the installer. Quick and easy to install, Varisol allows individual tubes to be simply ‘clicked’ together to create solar collectors of varying sizes and cover area that couldn’t normally be covered using standard manifolds, e.g. around windows or sky lights.
A Positive Environmental Impact
Burning fossil fuels produces vast quantities of carbon dioxide, a major contributor to global warming. The average household with a Thermomax system installed can expect to generate approximately
1,836 kWh/year with zero emissions. The diagram below illustrates the amount of CO2 produced by oil, gas and electricity to generate the equivalent 1,836 kWh.
