Solar Hot Air Generator
With locally available low cost, corrugated roofing elements, Sunvention's special, highly transparent and extremely durable Miraflow film selective black painting, backside therma l insulation and optimized Air Channel Geometry, an effective and economic I-Roof Solar Hot Air Generator is created.
It requires no electrical energy to pump the air to be heated - the automatically created convection fulfill this task. The outlet air temperature of the I-Roof can be controlled over Air Duct Cross Section.
The I-Roof elements can be used in different configurations:
- As convective Solar Dryer “I-Dryer”, typically for sea weed, bananas and all sort of fruits. It is modularly extendible, according to the local need. Beside regulating the drying temperature via the cross section of the Air Duct it is also possible to combine the “I-Dryer” with special PCM storages extending the operational hours over the day time.
- As convective Solar Roof, “I-Roof”, to climatize houses and produce simultaneously domestic hot water
- As Sea-Water desalination plant “I-Desal”.
