Rioglass, the world leader in the development, production, and marketing of high end receiver tubes and concentrating mirrors, proudly introduces its new cutting edge, unrivaled next generation receiver tube, the “UVAC 7G”.

This next generation receiver, which guarantees outstanding absorption rates of above 96.2% and emissivity rates below 9.5%, provides our clients superior solar heat absorption without compromising on heat losses, and sets a new benchmark for thermal energy production, using oil-based HTF in parabolic trough technology.

Since the successful incorporation of the receiver tube business, Rioglass has been heavily investing in further developments of advanced and more efficient receivers in order to enable its customers to increase thermal energy production and thus lowering their cost of energy. This continuous dedication has now resulted in the development of the UVAC 7G. Verified for highest performance by external labs under real working conditions, the UVAC 7G, with its superior energy output, durability and reliability, offers the best value proposition to Rioglass’ valued customers worldwide.

The UVAC 7G can be manufactured with the standard 70 mm diameter (UVAC 7G) or with the larger diameter (90 mm) to fit greater aperture collectors (UVAC 90-7G).
