Receiver is the core of thermal receiving system, which absorbs solar energy and converts it into thermal energy by heat transfer media.
Molten salt receiver has to sustain frequent and sharp temperature fluctuation and corrosive condition. To overcome such working condition, SUPCON SOLAR has optimized the receiver with safety strategies.
