I can't find Barilla listed under Solar Thermal products
MCS has Barilla collectors listed under the technology type “Solar Keymark” and not “Solar Thermal” as you might expect.
What is the Solar Keymark?
The Solar Keymark is the European-wide standard for solar thermal collectors. Its requirements are above and beyond those laid down by MCS.
I am being asked for Declared Net Capacity, what is this?
In our opinion this is the theoretical peak power output of a collector at 1.0 kW/m2 irradiation and zero degrees temperature differential between collector fluid temperature and ambient air temperature. To calculate this see below:
Barilla TZ Tube: Peak Output (kW) = Number of Tubes x 0.093 x 0.734 x 1.0
Barilla F22 Flat-Plate: Peak Output (kW) = Number of Panels x 2.01 x 0.831 x 1.0
How do I find the annual yield for the system?
Use our Solar Thermal Design Assistant to build the system that you are assessing, this will give both a figure for the SAP solar input as required by MCS and our own estimated figure based on thousands of computer simulations.
