With the TUBO 12 the highest efficiencies achieve good heat yields even in the winter months. The vacuum between the inner and outer tubes allow negligible heat loss to the outside achieving high economies with even a relatively small roof area.

Quality and Working Life
The design of the TUBO 12 is a result of over 20 years of practical experience. The materials used are chosen to meet the highest quality requirements for a long working life for your solar thermal installation. The housing for the downward facing collector connections is finished from high quality stainless steel and the copper pipework in the tubes is finished in a special copper-nickel alloy, both of which withstand long periods of use at high temperatures. Normal copper pipes have a tendency for corrosion (scaling) at high temperatures.
The glass tubes have especially thick walls and individually undergo strict quality testing. The downward facing connections of the collector pipework have two distinct advantages: firstly, condensation, which accumulates in particular weather conditions, can drain directly downwards out of the tubes, and means that the tubes can not freeze and burst. Secondly, rapid emptying of the collector tubes at high temperatures extends the life of the anti-freeze and the collector.
The frameless, flat construction of the collectors uses less materials and therefore less energy for manufacturing.
Flexible Installation, Good Design
Small modules for different installation types (horizontal, vertical, roof mounting, flat roofs, facade mounting) allow for a variety of architectural integration possibilities. The TUBO 12, at 55mm, is the thinnest solar collector on the market (Consolar research). You can check this yourselves. Large continuous fields of collectors can be integrated into an architecturally stunning design.
The 16.4kg module weight and practical measurements make installation child’s play. There is no need for a crane; the TUBO 12 will fit through any roof window.
The Consolar Guarantee for the TUBO 12 covers against high temperature corrosion (scaling) for 5 and 10 years.
