Market Overview Solar Stations

A good solar station is essential for the performance of every solar thermal system. In our latest survey we collected data of 122 different solar stations. More and more of them comprise high efficiency pumps. The overview includes stations with and without heat exchangers, dual or single lines and all kinds of sensors. 

Footnotes to the table: HE pump = high efficiency pump; conventional = thermometer, manometer, mechanical flow meter; Vortex = thermometer, manometer, Vortex flow meter; Hall = thermometer, manometer, Hall flow rotor; StS = stainless steal
