Vitosol 100-FM flat-plate collector
High performance Vitosol 100-FM flat-plate collectors are the perfect addition to any heating system. With an individual absorber area of 2.3 m², solar collectors can be effectively matched to any energy demand. On average, they can replace up to 60 percent of the energy that would otherwise be required each year for DHW heating, and contribute to central heating backup. When used in conjunction with a condensing boiler, free solar energy can help you reduce your annual energy consumption for heating and DHW by over one third.
Permanently sealed and well insulated
The all-round folded aluminium frame and seamless pane mounting ensure permanent tightness and a highly stable collector. The back panel is puncture-proof and corrosion-resistant. Highly effective thermal insulation reduces heat losses, particularly in spring, autumn and winter.
The collectors are particularly easy to install. Integral flow and return pipes enable safe installation even of larger collector arrays using flexible, corrugated, stainless steel push-fit connectors. Up to twelve solar collectors can be easily linked together.
The flat-plate collectors can be used universally for above roof installation, roof integration and installation on collector supports, for example on flat roofs. The easy-to-assemble Viessmann fixing system consists of load-tested and corrosion-resistant components made from stainless steel and aluminium.
ThermProtect prevents overheating
An intelligent absorber layer protects the collectors from overheating. Viessmann's patented ThermProtect technology prevents further energy absorption once a certain temperature has been reached, when the solar cylinder is fully heated.
ThermProtect also leads to higher yields with the Vitosol 100-FM compared to conventional flat-plate collectors, as more generous sizing is possible.
