UPDATE: Apricus has developed and certified an updated version of the AP solar collector called the ETC solar collector. The ETC will be gradually introduced throughout 2015, replacing AP collector stock with global distributors. Gross dimensions of the AP and ETC collectors are the same and backward compatibility exists for both Evacuated Tubes and Heat Pipes.
The Apricus AP-30 (30 tube) collector is designed for use in a wide variety of solar thermal applications in almost any climate.
The evacuated tube and heat pipe technology provides very efficient and reliable solar thermal production in an easy to install, low maintenance design. For an overview of the Apricus AP evacuated tube solar collector design and key features, click here.
A single AP-30 tube collector is ideal for residential households of 4-5 people, able to provide 60-80% of domestic hot water demand (depending on location).
For commercial projects that demand a lot more hot water such as such as hotels, dormitories and car washes, multiple AP-30 collectors can be connected to form a larger solar thermal array.
