Ceramic Materials for Concentrated Solar Power

Product Announcement from Saint-Gobain High Performance Ceramics, Refractories and Hexoloy® Products

Saint-Gobain Ceramics is a leader in material design and cost effective solutions for concentrated solar power. Our unique capabilities in designing high temperature receiver materials enhances the efficiency and high temperature conversion of solar energy to thermal energy for conversion to electricity. Our products are also capable of enhancing the thermal storage of this energy and are capable of reaching temperatures out of reach of most metal alloys. Our ceramic receiver systems are designed for troughs, Fresnel, central receiver, and power tower systems. Our silicon carbide materials work under conditions using super-heated air, steam, water, organic thermal fluids, and molten salt HT fluids.
