1. Absorber profiles
Savosolar’s collectors feature profiles that are used in heat exchangers in the automotive industry. In standard absorbers, the heat travels a long way until it reaches the heat transfer fluid. The heat conduction occurs within a very narrow welding seam, creating an unequal heat distribution and higher heat losses. In our absorbers, the heat losses are minimised since the distance from the coated surface to the heat transfer fluid is significantly reduced. For this innovative absorber development, we won the prestigious Intersolar Award in 2011.
