which is given the unique task of collecting the energy in the form of solar radiation and converting it into heat without any loss. The more efficient the absorber, the greater the heat produced by the panel.
The result is free energy that is environmentally friendly and reliable: energy for our future.
The TiNOX energy multilayer coating is made with the PVD process and can be applied on several metal surfaces.
It combines excellent optical characteristics with the excellent thermal conductivity of copper and is therefore suitable for evacuated tube collectors and other applications that require the highest energy efficiency.
The TiNOX energy surfaces ensure a high absorption of sunlight and low emissions of thermal radiation. The combination of these durable characteristics allows an efficient use of solar energy and minimum heat loss at the same time. Its ability to behave differently towards different forms of radiation is optimized for the working temperature of solar collectors (approx. 100 ° C) and it allows TiNOX products to collect up to 50% more energy than non-selective surfaces.
TiNOX energy surfaces, created on copper or aluminium, represent an important reference for the sector. These surfaces absorb 95% of incident solar energy, of which 90% is converted into thermal energy. Only 4% of the heat is lost in the form of radiation.
These values remain constant over time.
This allows solar panel manufacturers to ensure the highest quality and greatest yield to those who install these surfaces. The structure of TiNOX energy absorbers has been developed to optimise its function at temperatures close to those in which the solar collectors operate (100°C approx.). Thanks to this characteristic, the special PVD multilayer can absorb most of the incident solar energy on the panel (propagated with wavelengths less than 2.5 micron) and minimise the heat lost from the material in the form of radiation (wavelengths longer than 2.5 micron). The characteristic to adapt to different wavelengths, i. e. selectivity, allows TiNOX energy products to "capture" up to 50% more energy than non-selective products.
