This technical document was created and published by solar manufacturers Chromagen and State Water Heaters. It is a technical readout of their solar thermal flat plate collectors. The document lists and analyzes many of the key features of their collectors including the single plane glazing, the nylon glass fiber moldings, and the absorber plate. A diagram breaks down and labels the various layers of the collectors, from the glazing to the inner tube configuration. Charts and tables end the document by demonstrating various aspects of the collector’s efficiency.
