risers provide superior thermal connectivity between the fins and risers.
Revolutionary coating is black chrome on nickel, producing a premium selective
surface with maximum efficiency for solar energy use. Absorbability = 0.95
Emissivity = 0.12
2 Tubing Grid
copper risers are brazed to 1" copper manifolds for optimal flow
Four 1" Type M copper tubes.
Attached to the insulation, acts as a barrier against
5 Solar Glass Glazing
single pane of 1/8" thick solar glass is patterned to reduce reflection and
tempered to maximize strength and durability. *Iron oxide content: 0.03% *Solar
6 Back Plate
Backing: Reduces torque in the frame, is lightweight and eliminates the
possibility of any electrolysis issues for maximum benefit.
polyurethane foam cast under and around the side of the absorber plate, retains
the heat of the water in the collector. DFC-free P.U. meets U.S. and European
extrusion casings create a sleek framewall. Unique extruded profile allows easy
anchoring to the roof (shingle, tile, tar) or collector stands.
EPDM gasket. Highly resistant to temperature differences and UV radiation.
Absorbs the differential expansion of frame and glazing.

How It Works:
Flat plate collectors
capture solar energy by employing the green house effect. The glass covering
permits up to 90% of the visible sunlight to enter the collector. When the
light passes through the glass its frequency is changed slightly to a lower
energy level. When the light strikes the absorbing surface of the flat plate
inside, the light is absorbed as heat. The combination of the glass frequency
change and the solar absorbing surface of the plate capture the maximum amount
of energy. As the absorber plate heats up it begins to radiate energy as
infrared (IR) or heat radiation. Glass is essentially opaque to IR wavelengths
so the heat is trapped increasing the temperature.
Optional System Mounting Hardware:
• SL-FM Solene flush mount heavy duty hardware
gripper style kit
• SL-FML Solene flush mount hardware L-bracket
• SL-TM36 Mount hardware, tilt 36
