Better Antifreeze Performance Of Solar Collectors

Solar collector is a kind of device which absorbs solar radiant energy and transmits heat to working mass, as a special heat exchanger, the working mass in collector is exchanged with the distant sun. Solar collectors are mainly composed of endothermic plate core, shell, transparent cover, Solar Collector insulation materials and related components, in addition to the circulation pipe, heat preservation tank, you can absorb the sun radiation heat, so that water tank temperature rise.

Characteristics and principles of solar collectors

The structure of solar collectors is relatively simple, the operating cost is relatively low, the working quality of the temperature is also low, safe and reliable. In addition, compared with the vacuum tube solar collectors, solar collectors have a strong bearing capacity, Solar Collector heat absorption area, and so on, is a combination of the sun and building one of the best choice of collector type.

The working principle of solar collectors is very simple, mainly is sunlight through the transparent cover to the surface coated with absorption layer of the endothermic body, Solar Collector most of the solar radiation will be absorbed into the absorption body into heat, and eventually transferred to the fluid channel in the working medium. After that, from the bottom of the heat collector into the refrigerant, in the fluid channel by solar heating to become a hot working mass, heated thermal refrigerant with useful heat from the collector's top outflow, Solar Collector stored in storage tanks for use, that is, to become useful energy to be benefited. At the same time, due to the heat absorption body temperature, through the transparent cover plate and shell to the environment dissipation of heat, it constitutes a plate solar collector of various thermal losses.

Solar collectors are an important part of a flat-panel PV water heater, Solar Collector and the main difference between the solar water heaters and the vacuum tube. In general, the thermal efficiency of the plate solar energy is higher, the antifreeze performance is better, the service life also is longer, is the future family solar water heater mainstream trend.
