Schwank, the industrial climate expert, has reacted to this and created another module for climate-neutral heating by expanding its product portfolio to include Solar Air Collectors in addition to hydrogen operated tube heaters.
The new product group is launched under the name solarSchwank. The products for renewable heat generation are conceived as facade systems. The actual solar air collector consists of perforated, durable, aluminium, with a solar active surface (absorber). This selective coating ensures a highly efficient conversion of solar energy into thermal energy. When the sun’s rays meet the solar active surface, they are converted into thermal energy and released into the air layer below the absorber. The heated air cushion is then fed directly into the building assisted by a fan. This is carried out without any conversion processes or use a heat exchanger. Thanks to this efficient method, heating costs can be reduced, for instance, by 50% and CO₂ emissions can likewise be lowered.
The solarSchwank System is available with or without fresh air supply. The air collectors are easy to install and can be implemented very quickly in both new and existing buildings. Thanks to the use of lightweight materials, they can be mounted on almost any building facades.
