(PRWEB) January 5, 2005
SHEC-Labs (Solar Hydrogen Energy Corporation) today announced the filing for a patent on their proprietary solar receiver.
There exists today considerable interest in harnessing renewable solar thermal energy for a multitude of heat driven processes. These may include thermo-mechanical as in sterling engines, steam turbine power generation systems, thermo-chemical reforming, thermal-disassociation of water, process heating and materials processing etc. ÂThis is a major breakthrough in the economical collection of solar radiation and when combined with complimentary technologies we have developed at SHEC-Labs, we feel we are ready for the next step, commercialization.Â Said Mr. Tom Beck, President and C.E.O. of SHEC-Labs.
The present invention provides a receiver assembly in which solar radiation is converted to heat by multiple internal reflections within a reflective cavity. This cavity receiver assembly is thermally coupled to the required heat process. The receiver assembly has sufficient mass to prevent thermal fluctuations and provides the coupled process with a consistent temperature regardless of minor insulation or reflected solar energy variations.
