The Solar Air Collector otherwise known as a solar thermal air heater will be heated by the solar radiation.
The thermal energy created by the solar radiation will be transferred into the building as fresh, preheated air.
The air enters the collector through a patented double-perforated rear wall. The air passes through the absorber, made of a black filtrated matting, which is resistant to high temperatures. The material is also the highly effective air filter.
Unique to this collector is the conversion of solar energy to warm, fresh dry air. The air gap between the rear wall and the absorber provides sufficient thermal resistance to transfer heat energy to the incoming air, eliminating the need for insulation.
Short payback time (ROI).
Powerful dehumidification, and free supplementary heated fresh air, resulting in lower energy consumption.
Improves the operation of existing ventilation systems.
Especially suitable for professional and commercial building applications.
Preheating of fresh air:
• for warehouses and storage units
• for industrial and agricultural buildings
• for commercial buildings, offices, shops etc.
• for sports clubs, gymnasiums, swimming pools and spa baths
• to institutions (village halls, museums, hospitals, schools etc.)
• to hotels, large public houses, large restaurants etc.
• Drying of stored timber, biomass, grain and feed products
• Keeping dry vintage and classic vehicle collections

Positioning of SolarVenti® Professional Units
SolarVenti® Professional is designed for roofs (or ground) with little or no slope.
SolarVenti® Professional is optimally installed facing as close to due souyh as possible.
A deviation of up to 45 degrees from due south is possible, by simply increasing the area of solar collectors.
At the design stage, you will need to take into account the roof hoods, roof windows and other technical equipment on the roof.
