The Rover is a unique miniaturized mobile see-through solar thermal demonstra­tion unit that contains a functional pressurized closed loop and an un-pressurized drainback/double pumped drainback loop. This unit demonstrates both flat plate and evacuated tube collectors. Pumps are operated by a digital controller for the pressurized loop, and by an analog controller for the non-pressurized loop.


The unique design of the Rover include clear tanks and tubing which allow students to see what is inside the tanks and pipes. This allows the student to observe the actual movement of the heat exchange fluids through the system. The Rover fits through a 32-inch door and designed so that the solar collectors fold down for easy storage and transport.


All collectors, loops, controls, sensors, expansion tank, heat exchange coils, and thermometers are fully functioning. The Rover runs on 110 volt power and can be operated outdoors to collect sunlight or in­doors with a heat lamp.


Included with each Rover is a handbook that explains how the it functions and exercises that teachers can build into their classroom curriculum to demonstrate the various design principles of solar thermal systems.


The Rover allows students to see a working demonstration of how so­lar thermal energy is stored and collected. To demonstrate how that energy is distributed, a companion trainer (the Pup) was developed. The Rover and the Pup interconnect to provide an complete solar thermal educational experience.
