Thermodynamic Solar Technology

The thermodynamic solar systems use heat pump technology supported by solar energy to generate domestic hot water and heating by capturing solar and environmental energy to heat water in a efficient way, with very low energy consumption compared to conventional systems.

Why thermodynamic solar panels are different?

  • Obtain hot water under any atmospheric condition, functioning at night time as well as in wet or windy weather
  • Works continuously 24 hours a day 365 days per year under all weather conditions
  • Without glass or electrical components
  • Ventilation and de-icing unnecessary
  • Don’t need maintenance or cleaning
  • Dirtiness does not affect the output of the panel

How does Solar Thermodynamic Heat Pump Technology Work?

A refrigerant fluid at low temperature (that could be less than 0ºC) circulates in the interior of the thermodynamic panel. The fluid captures the incidental solar radiation in the panel as well as other environmental energy. The thermodynamic cycle condenser transfers the heat to the water. The ecological refrigerant R134-A or R407C, which enters into the panel at a negative temperature, runs through the closed circuit situated in the interior of the panel. The difference in temperature provoked by external agents such as the sun, rain or the wind guarantees the gasification of the fluid.

The compressor sucks the heated gas and reduces its volume, raising its temperature and transmitting it to the water circuit through a heat exchanger, managing to obtain domestic hot water up to 55 or 65°C. At high pressure and after having transfer a large part of its heat to the condenser, the refrigerant fluid arrives at the expansion valve again in liquid phase. Here the pressure is reduced which means the fluid is in condition to enter into the panels once again. The valve regulates the outflow depending on its temperature. Like this, the refrigerant will be sent again, in the form of micro drops, through the dehydrated copper piping to the panels, where it will be compressed once again, and the cycle will be repeated until the desired temperature is reached.

Thermboil E & I Series

The Thermboil E+I Series is a unique technology capable of harvesting energy in two ways: combining a thermodynamic solar panel which collects solar radiation and external environmental energy and an inner heat exchanger that extracts energy from indoors. In this way, it assures a continuous output even with low temperatures.


Why Choose E & I Series?

  1. Architectural integration: the panel can be installed in any area: wall, terrace, roof, etc.
  2. Suitable for cold climates: Efficient even at low temperatures because it can capture solar radiation and external / indoors environment energy.
  3. Suitable for a new installation or to substitute an electric/gas boiler. High efficiency system that improves the home energy rating.

Thermboil FX Series

The Thermboil FX is a thermal-thermodynamic system, the result of mixing a thermal solar system with a thermodynamic heat pump. The thermal panel is directly exposed to the sun and receives its energy, transfering it to the water in order to heat it. After transmitting the energy to the water, the thermal fluid still contains energy that the evaporator in the heat pump system takes advantage of.

Why choose FX Series?

  1. Double energy capture: Raises the output of the thermal solar installation, taking advantage of the remaining energy at low temperature as well as extracting the energy from the interior of the house, etc.
  2. Minimum renewable contribution of 90%. The major part of the energy obtained is renewable thanks to the free harvesting of solar radiation and environmental heat. It can be installed in new facilities that demand renewable systems without any other system support.
  3. Huge energy savings in comparison with other systems so you can obtain a reduction in your energy bills, avoiding CO₂ emissions and improving your home energy rating.
