Flat-Plate (Pressure-bearable) Systems

♦   Pressure-bearable Systems suited for Potable Water

♦   Reaches temperatures of 55° - 65°C

FTP Series

The blackened aluminum absorber fins capture solar irradiation faster, and transfers it to the water via copper risers due to high thermal conductivity, ensuring the maximum efficiency of heating the water. As the temperature of water in the panel increases, it rises up to the insulated storage tank, to be replaced by cooler water from the tank - the solar-siphon effect. The hot water is then stored ready for your use - hot water free from the sun!

Our latest in-house technology to weld aluminum absorber fins improves the efficiency of our product by 15% (patent pending).

Black-Chrome plated panels (instead of standard panels) are also available on-request (see Optional Components below).

 

SUNBIRD Flat-plate is the proud recepient of the Presidential Award in Energy, with its innovation for LOWEST OVERNIGHT HEAT LOSS by our patented design and technology.
