SolPac™ P60, the solar parabolic trough from Thermax, is a 6.8 m2 solar parabolic concentrator assembly consisting of a reflector, glass covered receiver tube, automatic tracking system, and support structure. The main component of the system is the parabolic reflector with a glass covered receiver tube placed at its focus. The concentration of the sun's thermal energy onto the receiver tube heats the working fluid flowing through the tube. This heat energy can be used directly or indirectly for a range of applications. The maximum temperature of the medium that can be attained using this technology is 210 °C.
