Lakewood, NJ – Aquatherm Industries has received Issue Notification from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for U.S. Patent No. 7,634,994, regarding the unique vented web design of its Ecosun brand of Solar Pool Heating Collectors.
The vented web allows for moisture ventilation for the roof, as well as increased wind load relief during adverse weather conditions. The method by which these vents are created is unique in that no material is removed in the process. Instead, “slits” are engineered into the tube-and-web design, maximizing collector surface area.
This breakthrough design resulted in a performance rating from the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) of 1,010 BTUs per square foot, making Ecosun the highest-efficiency vented solar pool heating collector available today.
The Issue Notification confirms the patent application is approved as of December 22, 2009.
