Solar panels achieve even higher thermal efficiency

Published:  08 December, 2009

Rotex

The latest range of solar-thermal panels from Rotex are 5% more efficient than previous products from the company and capable of converting 96% of the Sun’s energy into heating and hot water. These flat collectors can be combined with the specially designed tank Rotex Sanicube Solaris to reduce energy bills by up to 50% in commercial and domestic installations.

There are two sizes of tanks — 300 and 500 l.

The flat collectors come in three different sizes and can be mounted on the roof tiles, integrated within the roof or mounted on specially made flat frames.

Extensive testing has been undertake on the system by the Hygiene Institute at the University of Tübingen in Germany.
