PTMx
THE PARABOLIC TROUGH FOR A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

Thanks to its exceptional ease of use, PTMx delivers also to small scale systems (1’000 m2 or less) all the benefits of solar concentration with parabolic troughs that, up to today, have been available exclusively to large scale solar thermal power stations.
The innovative technology of PTMx makes it the best worldwide in its category and is available for a wide range of applications.
PTMx parabolic collectors include the following innovations:
– high modularity, available also in small sizes;
– multiple possibilities of installation, such as, for example, on flat roofs;
– modern and attractive design;
– tempered glass mirrors;
– precise and reliable sun tracking system;
– automatic safety devices;
– possibility of installation along any orientation;
– certification according to EN 12975.
