Improved perfection

Kingspan Renewables says it has followed up on the success of its Varisol modular solar thermal collector by launching Varisol HP.

Retaining all aspects of the original design, including simple ‘click-fit’ tubes and high performance polymer materials, Varisol HP has an added benefit of a temperature limitation device in the condenser for system protection.

According to Kingspan, the system is suitable for both domestic and commercial markets, the collectors do not degrade in performance levels, and end users can benefit from long-lasting, optimum energy capture and savings along with low cost of ownership.

Kingspan Environmental and Renewables managing director, Ralph Mannion, said: “We’re delighted to be able to combine both our award-winning modular Varisol design with our hero product, Thermomax HP. This has been the result of a major emphasis on research and development here at Kingspan. We were able to develop a unique copper pocket, over-moulded into the Varisol polymer header, to house the condenser and allow for the dry connection of solar thermal tubes.

“This revelation means our customers can now enjoy the total flexibility of modular design along with the unique benefits of our Thermomax HP vacuum tubes. This includes a temperature limitation mechanism to ensure a lifetime of maximum output and savings as well as dry tube connections for easier upkeep and installation. This makes Varisol more cost-effective and efficient than ever before.”
