News from TQC, Nottingham: TQC Deliver the first 2 Machine for Testing Solar Tubes

The first two machines have been succesfully delivered to the new Kingspan® Renewables factoy in Portadown, Northern Ireland, the remaining 4 systems are close to completion and will be delivered shortly.

The machines delivered are for the helium leak testing of the central copper tube and for the 'flashing' of an element within the solar tube assembly.

This 'flashing' operation is caused by induction heating a disc within the tube, once heated the disc 'explodes' and has the effect of buring off any remaining gases within the tube.

TQC will be posting full details on the equipment supplied to Kingspan® Renewables later in the year.
