Schletter Inc. Unveiling New PVSpin™, Solar PV Module Cleaning System at Intersolar North America

Share Article

The PVSpin is a unique solar module cleaning system which removes dust and debris from solar module surfaces; soil is often the cause of a decrease in energy production for solar PV systems.

Schletter©, a well-known, reliable partner in solar photovoltaic (PV) racking systems, will be unveiling their new PVSpin (patent pending) at the Intersolar North America exhibit in San Francisco, July 12 - 14. The unique system was developed as a means to effectively clean module surface areas for improved power production.

Unlike conventional methods of cleaning photovoltaic modules, which use brushes and rods, the PVSpin System uses water pressure to rotate two large circular cleaning heads while spraying the modules with a clean, steady flow of water. The operator guides the device up and down the panel surface area reducing the cleaning time as compared to hand-held brushes.

“The PVSpin is unique to the solar industry,” says Martin Hausner, President of Schletter Inc. “Photovoltaic modules drop in efficiency as soil builds up on the module surface. This is especially the case in dry, sunny locations where many PV systems are located. The PVSpin is a direct answer to this issue and will result in greater energy payoffs for owners of solar systems.”

Previously released by Schletter GmbH, Schletter Inc.’s parent company, at Intersolar Europe, Schletter Inc. will release the U.S. product in booth number 7758 at Intersolar North America in San Francisco July 12 - 14.
