WHY USE SOLARBEAM?
The SolarBeam Concentrator is a solar hot water system that provides 34,140 BTU’s per/hour for your most demanding applications. That includes facility heating as well as process functions. One SolarBeam can provide more kW and BTUs per day than conventional hot water panels. Even newer evacuated tube technology provides fractional amount of energy compared to 1 SolarBeam.
The SolarBeam (solar hot water system) does not use glass for its reflector, it uses a durable, metallic reflective surface which requires very little cleaning and will withstand tough climates. This solar hot water system is highly affordable for the residential and commercial market. In addition, it can collect 10kW of heat from a collector that is the size of 10″ x 10″. Other technologies, such as evacuated tube systems, need large amounts of space to produce 10kW of heat, because of their lower efficiency.
Due to SolarBeam’s innovative design, it requires 98-262% less space than conventional solar flat plate panels or solar evacuated tube panels. SolarBeam uses a patent-pending celestial tracking system to harvest the suns energy throughout the entire day. Traditional flat panels only reach their peak efficiency for about 2 hours a day, because they are stationary.

SolarBeam can be used in facilities that use hot water for food and beverage processing, hotels that require hot water for laundry, and many more applications. The solar hot water system can easily bring up water temperature from 4 C to 90 C which dramatically reduces production costs. The SolarBeam can be used for air conditioning when used in conjunction with an absorption chiller. That gives the solar hot water system the opportunity to reduce climate control costs in both winter and summer. Imagine the annual savings! SolarBeam easily interfaces with existing hot water systems. This means that installing SolarBeam will not require major design changes – which would add significantly to your costs. Also, this compatibility ensures quick installation with minimal installation costs compared to solar hot water panels.
