Viessmann offers a lower-cost Vitosol 100 flat-plate solar collector and the Vitosol 300 evacuated-tube solar collectorSolar collector consisting of a series of glass vacuum tubes in which an inner tube containing fluid (or in some types, a metal plate) absorbs heat energy and transfers it for practical use, usually water heating.. Both hot water tanks, the stainless-steel Vitocell B 300 and the more economical steel Vitocell B 100, use HCFC-free polyurethane insulation and have dual heat exchangerDevice that transfers heat from one material or medium to another. An air-to-air heat exchanger, or heat-recovery ventilator, transfers heat from one airstream to another. A copper-pipe heat exchanger in a solar water-heater tank transfers heat from the heat-transfer fluid circulating through a solar collector to the potable water in the storage tank. coils that accommodate both solar and conventional-boiler heat input.
