VTS Vacuum Tube Collector
VTS-12 / VTS-16
The VTS is a Calpak collector of unique design using ultrasonic welding of the copper u-pipe thereby thereby providing outstanding performance and reliability.
- Ultrasonic welding of the copper fins on the copper U-pipe
This contributes to the significant enhancement of the therma conductivity between the copper fins and the copper u-pipes. In addition, the use of copper fins considerably improves the resilience of the collectors to strong thermal shocks.
- Specially designed parabolic reflector (CPC)
The carefully calculated radius of the parabolic shape of our reflectors enhances the exploitation of diffused radiation.
- Aluminum header and side profiles
The aluminum profiles used for the header and the side parts of the VTS collector contribute notably to the sturdiness of its structure.
