The all-aluminium absorbers will be shown together with insulated aluminium connection lines and aluminium fittings and connections, which have been developed by partner companies.
|WELCOME: Hydro welcomes customers, partners and solar thermal system suppliers to its stand B1.151 at Intersolar Europe.
Apart from significant cost and weight reduction, the aluminium tubing solutions offer advantages that include:
- Production process improvements
- Material stress reduction
- Ease of recycling.
Intersolar Europe takes place from June 13-15 in Munich, Germany.
Flexibility in production, design
|AWARD: Together with Savo Solar, Hydro was awarded the Intersolar award 2011 for the MPE absorber.
The absorbers demonstrate the flexibility of production possibilities, with regard to absorber design and welding technologies, when using aluminium as both tubing and sheet material.
Next to a laser-welded harp absorber and an ultrasonically welded meander absorber, Hydro will also exhibit its innovative MPE absorber at Intersolar.
Last year, in recognition of the development of the all-aluminium MPE absorber, which offers a completely new and high-performance absorber design, Hydro and Savo Solar were awarded the Intersolar Award 2011.
Best in test – guaranteed
Not least, Hydro will present an aluminium tube absorber that has gone through the toughest high-temperature corrosion tests ever performed for any tubes in a solar thermal application.
The tests, conducted at SPF in Switzerland, simulated 20 years of life – and demonstrate the corrosion resistance of the HyLife™ Solar alloy, which Hydro developed specifically for solar thermal applications.
Convinced by the excellent test results, Hydro is the only tubing supplier to the solar thermal market that guarantees a lifetime of 10 years against corrosion.
