Rioglass Solar specializes in designing and manufacturing key optical components for concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) applications. We’re continually innovating our product designs and production processes, which enables us to offer an optimized product with state-of-the-art features. Our line of solar mirrors and HCE tubes help our customers capture and harness the sun’s energy to create solar power.

Our Mirrors

As the industry leader in solar mirrors, Rioglass offers a range of products from flat annealed mirrors with our proven durability and reflectivity to our integrated Heliostat Mirror Facets with outstanding optical performance and repeatability. We also offer parabolic mirrors with high performance, both in concentration as well as in durability. We have high specificity for cutting our glass, which allows us to provide our customers with standardized mirrors for smaller sized troughs, or other custom designed dimensions. We also provide 3D bending.

All of our mirrors feature:

  • Tempered glass, reducing breakage rates
  • High reflectivity values and intercept factor performance
  • A high Cost of Ownership

Our HCE Tubes

Rioglass Solar offers two different HCE tubes. Both are manufactured with stainless steel and covered with a vacuum glass sleeve to absorb maximum radiated energy and emit minimum energy. They also include patented getters, which absorb hydrogen released from synthetic oil, enabling them to maintain their vacuum quality for 25 years. The stainless steel tube has a cermet selective coating, allowing for very high absorption for direct beam solar radiationcombined with very low emissivity.

All of our tubes provide:

  • Optimal solar absorption
  • Reduced heat losses
  • A larger active area
  • Increased thermal heat production
  • Anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings
