Principle

The SEIDO2 series collector module is a kind of direct flow solar collector, which system consists of vacuum tube, inner tube of vacuum tube, manifold and inner manifold. The inner tube is connected with the inner manifold and the vacuum tube. The heat-transfer fluid flows through the inner manifold, inner tube, vacuum tube and manifold in turn. The effective heating position is the space between inner tube and vacuum tube. This system allows any installation angle of the module between 0° and 90° allowing the absorber surface being adjusted to the optimum position towards the sun.

Application


Customization and convenience

SEIDO2 solar collectors apply direct-flow which even increases their efficiency. The heat transfer fluid in the concentric tubes of the absorber transfers the heat. All SEIDO2 collector tubes are connected in parallel. This allows any arrangement of the module at tilt angles between 0° and 90° with the absorber surface adjusted to the optimum angle. Each tube can individually be arranged to the optimum position towards the sun to receive the maximum solar irradiation throughout the year. Due to these characteristics, the collectors can meet special customer demands as integration into facades or horizontal installations on flat roofs.

Top performance and versatility

An important asset of SEIDO2 solar collectors is their versatility. One of the application areas for SEIDO2 solar collectors is domestic water heating. Therefore, installation requires remarkably little space making it practically applicable at any domestic place. Despite their little size, the collectors still cover over 70% of the hot water needs of an average household. Their excellent efficiency makes them also suitable for the operation of larger systems for commercial or public use. In addition, SEIDO2 solar collectors are also applicable for space heating and air-conditioning.


A circuit and a system

A self-contained heating circuit transports the heat from the collector to the inhouse hot-water storage tank (approx.300L). There the heat is passed on to the inhouse hot-water storage tank by a heat exchanger and the water for domestic use is heated. When the heat supplied by the collector is not sufficient to attain the desired temperature, a conventional heating system takes over and completes the heating process. An electronic control unit (different-temperature regulator) constantly checks whether the temperature at the collector opening is greater than the temperature in the inhouse hot-water storage tank. If this is the case, the control unit switches on the heating circuit.
