1. Length and width do not include the inlet and outlet which protrude from either the rear or ends of the manifold.

2. Absorber area calculated as: D x L x N where:

  • D = diameter of the absorber tube, in this case 0.047m
  • L = exposed length of tube: For 1.8m tubes this is 1.72m
  • N = number of tubes (4, 10, 20, 22, 30)
  • Eg. 0.047 x 1.72 x 20 = 1.6m2 absorber area (1m2 = 10.76ft2)

3. Calculated simply as overall length (including frame) x overall width.

4. AP Models are named as follows:
AP(Manifold Casing Color)(Port Location) - (Tube Number)

  • Manifold Casing Material: K = Black, S = Silver
  • Port Location: R = Rear, E = End
  • Tube Number: 4, 10, 20, 22, 30

Eg. APKR-20 = black rear port 20 tube manifold.
