A high performance vacuum tube collector that can be installed in almost any position; it can even be installed on a flat roof or hung on a wall! Individual pipes can be rotated for best alignment with the sun.
Thick borosilicate glass and a permanent vacuum sealed glass-metal joint gives high reliability and long service life. The pre-assembled modular design ensures simple handling and short installation times.
The Vitosol 200 is available in 1.5, 2.94 and 4.38m2 sizes with active absorber areas of 1,2 and 3m2 respectively.
Graph showing the Vitosol 200 absorber area needed (see 'aperture' scale) to supply x% of hot water at a standby temperature of 45 degrees Celsius assuming average incoming water temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. Average consumption is between 30 and 60 litres per day per person so, for a four person household, an absorber area of 4m2 would provide roughly 60% of hot water needs annually.
