Vacuum tube collector
Highly efficient vacuum tube collector with ThermProtect automatic temperature-dependent shutdown
Heat pipe principle
Vacuum tube collectors according to the heat pipe principle
ThermProtect automatic temperature-dependent shutdown for high operational reliability
Long service life of the overall system
Through temperature-dependent shutdown in the event of stagnation in summer
Protection against overheating
During prolonged exposure to sunlight
No direct contact between process medium and heat transfer medium, for easy replacement of tubes while the system is full
Less space required
Compared to flat-plate collectors due to greater efficiency
Constantly high output
Without the risk of absorber contamination
High levels of solar coverage
Therefore suitable for central heating backup
Flat roof installation
Designed for horizontal installation on flat roofs and larger systems
In horizontal flat roof installations due to larger tube spacing
Can be rotated by up to +/- 45 degrees
Absorber can be rotated by up to +/- 45 degrees
Low service costs
Due to longer service life of solar components and pumps thanks to ThermProtect
Lower static load
Due to reduced need for ballast in horizontal installations
Vitosol 200-TM vacuum tube collector
The Vitosol 200-TM vacuum tube collector has been designed specifically to be mounted horizontally in large systems on flat roofs and for apartment buildings. The absorbers can be rotated through 45 degrees to best mirror the path of the sun without increased shading.
Operational reliability with ThermProtect
The new ThermProtect automatic temperature-dependent shutdown function prevents overheating when no heat is drawn off and there is a high level of insolation. The Vitosol 200-TM is therefore also suitable for buildings that are not in use all year round, such as schools.
Maximum heat transfer
The collector works according to the heat pipe principle, where the heat transfer medium does not flow directly through the tubes. Instead, a process medium evaporates inside the heat pipe and transfers the heat through condensation to the heat transfer medium via a copper heat exchanger. This method guarantees maximum and optimum heat transfer, as well as excellent operating and service characteristics.
Quickly, simply and safely installed
The header casing does not need to be opened when tubes are inserted. Retaining caps in the base rail prevent the tubes from slipping. Should a service be required, the tubes can be replaced quickly, cost effectively and easily due to their dry connection, without having to drain the system.
For a long collector service life.
Check in your country if the Vitosol collectors qualify for any subsidies or rebates.
