HYDRAULIC AND THERMOTECHNICAL MEASUREMENTS TO DETERMINE THE EFFICIENCY OF AN INNOVATIVE SOLAR THERMAL COLLECTOR
There are many variants of solar collectors on the market with their advantages and disadvantages. The innovative solution of solar thermal collector has been done to increase efficiency and improve design. The new constructive solution presents good combination of an attractive design and appropriate constructive materials with special geometric shapes. Hydraulic and thermotechnical tests of this collector showed high hydraulic and structural stability. The main disadvantage is selective electrochemical coat and further development of the solar collector will be in order to improve observed disadvantages.
