HSPC 58-1800 series are high effective solar evacuated tube collectors with a calculated annual energy yield of 762 kWh/m² with respect to the aperture area at 50 °C (calculated by SP).
The solar collectors are available with 12, 15 and 18 vacuum tubes. Each collector tube consists of a evacuated double glass tube which functions as insulation. That absorber, which converts the solar radiation into heat, is sputtered on the surface of the inner tube. Heat converted from the absorber is then transferred to the heat pipe, which is located in the inner glass tube. The heat pipe conducts heat via its condenser to the manifold at the top of the collector.
The collector area and the storage volume shall be dimensioned based on both the type of solar heating system and the number of people living in the household. Thumb rules are given in the following table.
