Apricus Drainback Solar Hot Water Systems Receive IAPMO Certification

14 new residential USEC Certified drainback packages available.

Apricus, a leading designer and manufacturer of solar hot water and hydronic heating products, has received Uniform Solar Energy Code Certification (USEC) for 14 new residential solar hot water system packages from the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). These systems feature the Apricus evacuated tube solar collector with a number of storage tank options and include all major components for residential drainback solar thermal systems.


Nigel Ruddell, VP at Apricus Inc. commented, "Receiving USEC Certification for our drainback systems in addition to our other certified direct flow and closed loop solar hot water packages allows us to offer a wide variety of solutions for residential installations. Since these (drainback) systems drain automatically when not in use they provide a unique advantage which helps us to meet the needs of an ever growing solar thermal market."

Apricus Certified Systems are available through Apricus' nationwide network of representatives. For further information about our product line or to find a distributor in your area please contact Apricus directly at 1-877-458-2634.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
