Verify your components are performing well

Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of your products is critical

While solar collectors, tanks, pump-stations,

heat-exchangers, and controllers may be tested rated

and certified in labs, the real test is how they perform in

the field. Real-life applications test the viability of your

products. Comparing flat-plates to evacuated tubes, or

closed loop systems to drain-back systems, along with

various controller setups, give the opportunity assess

and develop better products.

  • Might a different installation practice make your panels perform better?

  • Is conventional wisdom of your installer based on engineering or do they just set controllers to the default?

  • Could all your products perform better if they were installed and controlled correctly?

Looking at portfolios of systems answers these questions and more. Customers often say things like "I love my system, it saves me so much", or " I don't know if it is doing anything". Sometimes the second case might be performing better than the first, but without measuring, how do they know? Today many people buy collectors based on brand loyalty or certification testing. As the thermal industry grows people will buy based on the most energy (BTU) for the lowest life cycle cost.

  • Web-based monitoring allows you to verify that your systems are running well and provide your customer assurance that their investment is working.

  • A secure login allows you to see all current and historical information about the operation of your product from any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet.

 

Compare similar systems and products

  • Understand how the operations of solar collectors, pump-stations, controllers, tanks and heat-exchangers all contribute to performance.

  • Evaluate how your product is used or perhaps misused.

  • Measure now to develop the most productive product.

  • Compare collector types and models. Flat-plate, evacuated tubes, glazed and unglazed all have their place when used appropriately.

  • Give your engineers the tools they need to evaluate designs and system strategies

While certification testing proves potential performance, monitoring reports actual performance. Eventually solar collectors will be judged and bought based on life cycle cost per unit of energy produced.

If you don't look at the data you can’t learn from the data.
