Ultra Lite 1á

Our Ultra Lite 1 trough uses air pressure to hold the primary mirror film reflector. This system reduces manufacturing costs. Solar troughs typically acheive up to 400 C temperatures.á

Ultra Lite 3

Our Ultra Lite 3 trough design does not use an air envelope, but a mirrored film adheared to an aluminum sheet that is held in a parabolic shape by a super-structure. A low-cost, low-temprerature (up to 200C) linear receiver replaces the much more expensive "evacuated tube linear receivers" for process heating and ORC power generation applications.
