    Aurora Collector Features:

    Absorber Plate
    Utilizing a state-of-the-art ultrasound weld, copper fins and 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
    3/8" copper risers are brazed to 1" copper manifolds for optimal flow distribution.

    Piping Connection
    Four 1" Type M copper tubes.

    Aluminum Foil
    Attached to the insulation, acts as a barrier against out-gasing.

    Solar Glass Glazing
    A 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 transmittance: 91%

    Back Plate
    Fiberglass Backing: Reduces torque in the frame, is lightweight and eliminates the possibility of any electrolysis issues for maximum benefit.

    1-3/16" 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 standards.

    All aluminum extrusion casings create a sleek framewall. Unique extruded profile allows easy anchoring to the roof (shingle, tile, tar) or collector stands.

    All-around EPDM gasket. Highly resistant to temperature differences and UV radiation. Absorbs the differential expansion of frame and glazing.

    Product Warranty:
    Ten (10) Year Warranty
    Plus Lifetime Limited Warranty

    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.
