Easy, quick and "accessible to anyone" mounting

Sunoptimo has changed the solar thermal dynamics. Previously considered as a technology requiring particular skills and an important set-up time, it is now synonym of simplicity and rapidity. The observed timing for the installation of the collectors and the linking is about five collectors per hour (with two persons working on it). It means approximately 3 days for the total mounting of an Opticube 100. 

 

 

1. Concrete studs to support the container and its metallic structures. Two pipes come from  the boiler room, and will be linked to the Opticube.

 

2. A truck crane lays the container down on the concrete. The pipes from the boiler room are linked to the container through to a trap door.

 

3. Mounting of the primary structure on the container and individual supports. Aluminium rails are then fixed to the primary structure.

 

4. Last step: the collectors are put on the aluminium rails, wich are linked together and connected to the pre-mounted primary circuit connections, waiting for the flow. The  mounting of the collectors starts from the bottom.  The following collectors simply line up above the first ones.

 

Each collector is linked to the previous one, mechanically due to specific fixings, and hydraulically with Opticonnect,  allowing for absorption of the dilation and the movements of each collector.  Once the collectors are set, the pre-isolated piping directly links the collectors lines to each other and further to the container.
