How do I decide between Flat plate and Evacuated tube?Arun base
This will be a debate well in to the future. For an more in-depth review please watch this Click here to watch this 1/2 hour webinar. Your decision should be based primarily on the following considerations:
- 1- Temperature demand– What is you existing application? EVT’s will outperform FP’s at higher temp load.
- 2- Climate location- In a general sense, flat plates have more value than evacuated tubes in warmer climates and EVT’s will do better in cold, cloudy climates.
- 3-Aesthetics appeal– This is where there is no “right” answer. Instead, each person has their own personal view. We recommend that you go with it. If they prefer flat plates for that reason then you install flat plates and if they prefer evacuated tubes for their aesthetic appeal, then by all means, you should install Evacuated tubes.
The point is, you really CANT GO WRONG. Each type will yield significant value and in the end, the differences will be negligible.
