Clique Consultants - a firm established in 1987, by a group of well-qualified and experienced engineers with the object of providing quality engineering services have already served a spectrum of industry houses and leading engineering consultants in the field. Since inception, the watchword of the firm is on technology absorption/ up-gradation, respect for quality, commitment and total client satisfaction.
The ARUN™ Solar Concentrator System can be used in 'ADD ON' mode and can be retrofitted to the existing boiler or heater system in the industry. In this mode it delivers energy whenever beam radiation is available and saves fuel used. This uses minimum storage capacity. The thermal energy generated can also be stored in thermal storage to supply energy requirements during evening and night. Pressurized water system is used for evacuation and storage of thermal energy.
The unit is best suited for the industrial applications using thermal energy from electricity or liquid fossil fuels. The thermal medium can be high or low pressure process steam, hot water, hot air, hot thermic fluid or oil.
It can be used for providing process heat for a wide range of industries and chemical processing plants using boilers or heaters, textile mills, sugar mills, vegetable oil mills, agro and food processing industries, timber industry, milk processing, drying of horticultural, food and fruits products, drying of chemicals as well as units using vapor absorption refrigeration for space cooling. It is also suitable for hotels and hospitals for providing hot water, steam and cooling.
This ARUN™ Solar Concentrator can be fitted with 25 kW Stirling engine to generate electrical power through thermal route. Presently a one MW plant using 40 units of solar concentrators of similar size is being installed at Mojave Dessert near Las-Vegas, USA. Solar farms with 500 MW and 800 MW capacities are also planned there. With the ARUN™ solar concentrators already in place, India is not far behind.
