Parabolic Trough Receiver

1. Brief Introduction
Parabolic trough receiver is also known as Heat Collecting Element (HCE). As a key component of a parabolic trough solar collector, its thermal and optical performance as well as performance reliability determines the efficiency and economy of a parabolic trough power generation system.

Himin has developed two generations of parabolic trough receiver, Himin-PTR2010 and Himin-PTR2012. Compared to previous products, Himin-PTR2012 is designed to promote the development of more productive and cost-competitive solar fields possible with its features of higher efficiency, more stability and longer service time.
