The receiver benchmark in CSP industry

SCHOTT Solar CSP introduces the 4th generation of receivers, which benefits from the experience of more than 1 Million receivers installed in over 50 CSP projects worldwide. The new generation SCHOTT PTR®70 again sets the benchmark in product performance and provides superior product durability and lifetime.

The SCHOTT PTR®70 is designed for usage in state-of-the-art power plants operating with oil-based heat transfer fluids at temperatures up to 400°C.

Validated best-in-class performance

According to measurements performed by QUARZ test facilitiees at DLR (German Aerospace Centre), the SCHOTT 4th generation receiver shows an optical performance 6% above the industry standard.

Heat loss measurements carried out in a round robin test performed by SCHOTT Solar CSP in cooperation with NREL (US National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and DLR confirmed a heat loss of less than 250 W/m at working temperatures (400°C).
