Matrix Energy provides more efficiency with its new MatrixAir' Backpass System

Introducing a new, low cost, high output MatrixAir' solar fresh air heating system from Matrix Energy Inc.

With nearly two decades of experience Matrix Energy Inc, a leading developer and systems integrator of renewable energy solutions, introduces the new MatrixAir' BP . Backpass System. "Our objective in developing the BP system was to produce an easy to implement and architecturally pleasing solar collector that could generate the highest energy output possible at the lowest cost", says Brian Wilkinson, Matrix Energy's founder and President. The MatrixAir' BP system succeeds in providing superior energy output than conventional glazed or unglazed backpass collectors and gives engineers and architects a more efficient and affordable fresh air heating system for façade-mounted industrial, commercial, agricultural or institutional applications.


Using conventional, non-perforated, exterior cladding, Matrix Energy has designed and optimized this low cost, unglazed, solar air heating system for fresh air heating to provide a nominal flow of 75 CFM of preheated ventilation or make-up air per foot of collector width or 120 l/s per metre of collector width.

According to Canada's National Solar Test Facility in Mississauga, Ontario, MatrixAir' Backpass has demonstrated a 60% operating efficiency with significantly higher energy output and temperature gains exceeding 23 °C over ambient temperatures.

The new and innovative design that is adaptable to a wide range of building sizes and styles makes this product a must have for all construction design.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
