Solvent Technology

Mobile solar thermal system for agriculture and industries


Solvent Technology is a solar thermal system for drying and heating applications in industry and agriculture processes.

The mobile thermal system give both sectors (industry and agriculture) the possibility to run their heating demanding processes with solar energy not bound to a specific location. Solvent Technology is specially designed for drying processes and heating. The double-flow collector (perforated cover, perforated absorber) is patented and guarantees high efficiency in energy conversion. Grain, wood chips, gras, herbs, tea, fruits and various biomass can be dried under high quality standards and are prepared for long term storage. In addition, humidity in industrial buildings and processes can be removed with preheated and dry air.
