Description

The Bosch VK 120-2 CPC solar thermal collectors are solar panels for the preparation of hot water and to support the central heating system in your home. 

Bosch VK 120-2 CPC solar collectors  capture sunlight in a high-quality absorber and use this heat to heat the liquid. The heated liquid is directed, via a system of tubes, to a solar water heater where the water is heated. The quality of the solar collector is therefore determined for the yield of your solar installation. With a German Bosch system, you can be sure of a quality solution!

Why this solution is suitable for you? 

  • These solar collector solar panels are ideal for preparing hot water and supporting your central heating system
  • Tubular vacuum collectors system with double wall for excellent conservation of thermal efficiency
  • Provides free hot water for your home
  • A typical well-sized solar hot water system will provide 70% of a home hot water requirement
  • CPC mirror technology for maximum performance
  • A competitive cost effective renewable energy choice

Advantages of the Bosch solar collector for solar heating

  • The vacuum in each tube ensures optimum insulation, minimizing the heat loss. This means that more solar energy is captured and conserved. 
  • The Bosch VK 120-2 CPC solar collector panel is equipped with a CPC (Compound Parabolic Concentrator) mirror which directs sunlight from all directions to the tubes in order, for example, to provide maximum energy efficiency. A mirrorless CPC solar collector model  is available for horizontal mounting on flat roofs as well. 
  • Specifically designed to complement existing home heating systems
  • Easy to use controller and manage your hot water

This is a solar collector panel that can be used in a combination with your existing gas boiler OR completely off-grid for hot water generation.

A solar thermal collector collects heat by absorbing sunlight. The term “solar collector” commonly refers to a device for solar hot water heating, but may refer to large power generating installations such as solar parabolic troughs and solar towers or non water heating devices such as solar air heaters

People use solar thermal energy for many purposes, including heating water, air, and the interior of buildings and generating electricity. There are two general types of solar heating systems: passive systems and active systems.
30 years
There is little or no maintenance required with solar heating systems and the expected lifespan is over 30 years.
As a rule of thumb you need between 1 and 2 m2 of collector (solar panels) per person living in the house. Shade on the panels at any time of day will reduce the performance. Most panels are mounted on a roof, but they can also be mounted at ground level.

Non-concentrating collectors

The collector area (the area that intercepts solar radiation) is the same as the absorber area (the area absorbing the solar energy/radiation). Solar energy systems for heating water or air usually have non-concentrating collectors. Flat-plate collectors are the most common type of non-concentrating collectors for water and space heating in buildings and are used when temperatures lower than 93C (200°F) are sufficient.

Flat-plate solar collectors usually have three main components:

  • A flat metal plate that intercepts and absorbs solar energy
  • A transparent cover that allows solar energy to pass through the cover and reduces heat loss from the absorber
  • A layer of insulation on the back of the absorber to reduce heat loss

Solar water heating collectors have metal tubes attached to the absorber. A heat-transfer fluid is pumped through the absorber tubes to remove heat from the absorber and transfer the heat to water in a storage tank. Solar systems for heating swimming pool water in warm climates usually do not have covers or insulation for the absorber, and pool water is circulated from the pool through the collectors and back to the pool.

Solar air heating systems use fans to move air through flat-plate collectors and into the interior of buildings.

Concentrating collectors

The area intercepting solar radiation is greater, sometimes hundreds of times greater, than the absorber area. The collector focuses, or concentrates, solar energy onto an absorber. The collector usually moves throughout the day so that it maintains a high degree of concentration on the absorber. Solar thermal power plants use concentrating solar collector systems because they can produce the high temperature heat needed to generate electricity.
