Warwick, RI (January 30, 2009) – With the new Vitosol 100-F flat plate solar collector, exhibited at the recent AHR Expo in Chicago, Viessmann has added an economy option to its line of flat plate and vacuum tube solar collectors. The collector features rugged, high-quality aluminum frame construction, impact-resistant solar glass, excellent solar energy harvest with a selectively-coated copper absorber, as well as an outstanding price/performance ratio.
The new 100-F Series is a no-frills, high-quality, high-performance collector that provides excellent value for any solar installation. Available with the same quick-connect fittings, pre-fabricated mounting hardware and system components as other Viessmann collectors, it’s an excellent low-cost option for installations where budget consideration are a key factor, such as large-scale commercial applications.
Suitable for wide range of applications and incentive programs
Suitable for a wide range of solar thermal applications, the 100-F Series is ideal for solar domestic hot water (DHW) or pool heating systems. For best results in colder climates, Viessmann also offers the premium series Vitosol 200-F flat plate collector with a higher insulation level, or the Vitosol 300-T heat pipe vacuum tube collector.
Now OG-100 certified by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC), the 100-F collector qualifies for available U.S. state and federal incentive programs. In Canada, the collector will be part of the Government of Canada’s ecoENERGY for Renewable Heat Program for commercial and industrial installations.
Thinking in systems for ease of installation and reliability
The new 100-F Series collector is part of the industry’s most complete line of design-matched solar thermal systems: Flat-plate and vacuum tube solar collectors, dual- or single-coil DHW storage tanks, pre-fabricated all-in-one pumping stations, a complete line of solar controls, pre-insulated piping systems, unique mounting hardware and more.
