SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanel™

How it works

Hybrid thermal air conditioning is a renewable energy method in which pressure and heat are added to the refrigeration cycle resulting in lower (or displaced) compressor workload and higher energy savings.

This hybrid-thermal approach keeps the compressor in low stage, low range, or low capacity while still delivering full and part-load cooling requirements.

A photo-tracking eye keeps the parabolas focused on the sun, rotating synchronously with the sun’s movement throughout the day.

Built-in sensors and controls maintain the system’s temperature, delivering consistent and regulated energy.
