auroTHERM exclusive VTK 570 (discontinued)

Vacuum tube solar collectors

  • Standardised roof bracket system
  • Vertical collector available for on-roof and flat roof installations with mounting bracket options
  • Up to six collectors can be connected in a series
  • Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC)

Overview

High efficiency vacuum tube collectors

Each collector is delivered pre-assembled with six tubes per collector and is compact and lightweight for ease of installation. Each tube is manufactured using toughened glass that is internally coated with a special high selective absorber, making the auroTHERM exclusive one of the most efficient collectors in its class. What’s more, the tubes have the benefit of a 10-year guarantee against loss of vacuum and, if necessary, can be replaced without draining down the solar system - meaning low maintenance all year round.

Features and benefits

  • High performance - Vaillant’s highest annual solar yield per square metre
  • Small and lightweight design - For ease of installation
  • Aesthetically pleasing - Multiple collectors can be connected in series using black anodised roof brackets that provide a neat and visually attractive finish
  • Fully assembled - Saving time during installtion
  • Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) - Each tube has an external CPC to ensure that solar radiation is efficiently directed toward the centre of each tube. The CPC has a ceramic coating to limit the build-up of dirt
  • Up to six collectors can be connected in a series - Giving larger outputs to suit most domestic properties (larger arrays are available but require careful planning. Details available upon request)
  • Vertical collector available for on-roof and flat roof installations with mounting bracket options - Giving you mounting options to suit various roof tile types
  • MCS accredited - Qualifies for various government incentives
  • Double width panels available
