Conserval Engineering Inc. has launched its new SolarDuct line of rooftop solar air heating and photovoltaic (PV)/thermal systems, which is based on the company's SolarWall system.

The technology has been engineered for roof settings and for applications where a traditional wall-mounted system is not feasible, the company says.

‘We are excited to be in a position to expand the solar air heating and PV/thermal markets with our new innovative rooftop systems,’ says John Hollick, president of Conserval and inventor of the SolarWall technology.

‘Our company has used our expertise platform to develop and design new solar products that will provide increased flexibility for clients looking to integrate renewable energy solutions on their buildings,’ he adds.

Like SolarWall, SolarDuct reduces on-site energy costs by heating ventilation air before it enters the air handling units. The patented system uses an all-metal collector panel and is designed for flat-roofed buildings in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors. The SolarDuct product can also be used for PV/thermal cogeneration to reduce the return-on-investment time frame of a PV system.
