Evacuated Tube, Solar Water Heating
Water Heating, hot water, solar water heating
Evacuated tube collectors consist of a number of modular tubes which are placed parallel to each other to create a collector. The tubes contain an absorber which is surrounded by a vacuum. This vacuum prevents any heat loss from the surface of the absorber. Fluid is passed through the tube and is heated by the absorber plates. This heated fluid is transported to the cylinder which heats the domestic hot water supply. The fluid returns to the collector to be heated again and the process is repeated.
If a tube gets damaged it can be replaced without disrupting the performance of the rest of the collector.
