Applications

The Kinley Duel Mirror System is truly remarkable as it seems that there are unlimited applications for the technology. Everyone who is introduced to the technology seems to come up with another application that had not yet been considered. The System's flexibility shows great potential for the technology to enter many different markets.

Some areas that the technology could prove useful are as follows:

  • Water Applications
    • Distillation
    • Desalination
    • Water purification
    • Waste water treatment

Thermocouples

As the ProSolarTec continues to improve its solar concentrating technology, the technologies used to measure and record data must also follow suit. Prometheus field tests currently use data acquisition software coupled with high-grade thermocouples to accurately measure temperatures of up to 8 different locations simultaneously. The testing has recently surpassed the upper limit of K-type thermocouples and in order to record these higher temperatures the Prometheus Team is now using platinum based R-type thermocouples. As the accuracy of the tests improves, more detailed fine-tuning can be executed on the prototypes, further increasing the success of the project's experiments.
