The Solar Radiation is absorbed by Flat Plate Collector which consist of an insualted outer metallic box covered on the top with glass sheeet. Inside thereare blackened metallic absorber(selectively coated) sheets with inbuilt channels or riser tubes to carry water. The absorber absorbs the solar radiation and transfers the heat to the flowing water.
Flat Plate Collector model is a traditional model where collectors are made of copper tubes which are selectively coated for generating radiation. This model is recommended for pressurised applicatiions where pressure pump is used between cold water and soalr tank.

Flat Plate Collector Solar water heaters comprise of the storage tank, tank insulation, collectors, electrical backup and supporting structure.
The water heating technology or water heating circulation is known as thermosphyon method.
For domestic systems the tank insulation material is puff insulation.
For commercial systems the tank insulation material is rockwool insulation.
The system temperature output is 60-800 Celsius.
