Company Summary

The inflatable concentrator has a cylindrical shape, rests on the ground, and runs lengthwise along a mirror film dividing the cylinder into two airtight chambers. A difference in pressure between the upper and lower chambers bends the mirror foil downwards, so that a mirror groove emerges that bundles the sunlight onto a focus line. The concentrated sunlight is used in absorbers to produce heat for industrial usage or electricity generation.
