A Spanish SME, devoted to the design and manufacture of installations for all types of fluids, has developed an innovative high efficient system of hot water production from solar thermal collectors which allows significant energy savings both in industrial processes and household heating. The technology is patented and already in the market. The company is looking for energy solutions providers interested in a license agreement or an acquisition of the patent.
A Spanish SME, working in the design and manufacture of installations for all types of fluids such as air, hot, coldand superheated water, steam, heating oil, compressed air, with applications in both the household and in the commercial and industrial sector, has developed an innovative high efficient system for the production of hot water from solar thermal collectors which allows significant energy savings. The solution developed consists of an innovative heating system based on solar collectors able to heat water up to 140 ºC against the 90 ºC reached with the current systems. Other current installations do not take full advantage of its potential maximum output, which would be up to 140ºC on a hot summer day with high solar radiation. This is due to the water turns gaseous at 100 ºC, which causes problems. Taking into account that the temperature the water must reach for household heating is 80º, current systems can only be used for household heating when they are just a little bit below of their maximum output.
This solar heating installation consists of flat solar panels or vacuum tubes which can vary in number according to the purpose of the application, interconnecting tubes, heat exchanger and a storage tank, with the intelligent control mechanism incorporated into this traditional system allowing it to reach a wide range of working temperatures. In this way, the solar heating installation makes it possible to obtain water at the right temperature, such as running hot water, water for underfloor heating or water at high temperatures.
The technology is patented and commercially tested. The company is looking for providers of solutions in solar energy willing to incorporate this technology into their portfolio through licensing or patent acquisition.
The system controls and obtains warm water from solar flat collectors or vacuum tubes, i.e. without a system of concentration, generating warm water with a temperature of up to 140 ºC. The system is especially suited for use in industrial processes in which currently a large amount of water at a very high temperature is required, with the corresponding high consumption of energy in the form of gas, fuel oil, etc. It is also suited for household heating.
The system allows energy savings of about 20-30%, reducing operating costs in installations for the production of heat, using clean and renewable solar energy.
The installations are characterised by their versatility, allowing water to be obtained at a range of different temperatures making it ideal for its use in many fields and processes, at both the household and industrial level.
The system can be remotely controlled.
The technology is fully developed and commercially tested.
