KIC to Exhibit Products for Increased Cell Efficiency through Process Optimization at EU PVSEC 2010

KIC's partnership with the Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products, which will be on display in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010.

San Diego August 2010 KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that its partnership with the renowned Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's award-winning SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products. These have demonstrated up to 0.51 percent cell efficiency improvements through more accurate and repeatable profiling and process improvements.


Balver Zinn will display the KIC products in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010. Balver Zinn also will distribute free copies of research papers and application notes demonstrating the use and capabilities of these new products.

Until recently, cell manufacturers had only a limited ability to identify better furnace settings and to periodically adjust the furnaces when the process changed, for example after preventive maintenance. KIC's new technologies allow cell manufacturers to control their own thermal process results with significant productivity and profitability improvements.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
