Arctic Solar To Manufacture High-Temperature Solar Thermal Collector

Florida-based Arctic Solar Inc. will be manufacturing the Emperor XCPC external concentrating parabolic collector developed at the University of California's Merced Solar Lab.

The system, designed for solar air-conditioning and industrial process heat applications, pairs an evacuated tube solar collector with an external non-imaging reflector in a non-tracking roof- or ground-mount system. Arctic Solar says this combination in an east-west configuration enables the system to achieve temperatures in excess of 392 degrees F.

Each XCPC power rating is 1.07 kW at 392 degrees F.
