Smart solar boiler

A solar boiler for industrial processes

Identification

Smart Solar Boiler harnesses solar power to provide adequate temperatures (80°C to 300°C) for processes that require steam, very hot water, cooling or intense heat which can be transported directly to the processes.

This industrial solution consists of two parabolic trough collectors (under the brand name): RACK10 (for rooftop) and Rack20 (ground mount). Installed in rows, these collectors increase the intensity of the sun's rays by concentrating them on a central tube filled with a circulating heat transfer fluid (e.g. oil), which absorbs the thermal energy. The collector consists of an ultra-high-efficiency parabolic mirror and a vacuum tube that receives the concentrated solar energy. The mirror and tube assembly are mounted on a pivoting structure equipped with a smart sun-tracking mechanism. The heat captured by the collectors is transported, at high temperature, through a piping system filled with a heat transfer fluid to a thermal battery or directly to the process. Heat is used in many different industrial processes:food and beverage, textile, mining industry, pulp and paper, water treatment and many other.
