Applications

Solar Energy / PV System Performance Monitoring

Our product range for PV monitoring includes pyranometers (measuring global solar radiation) and pyrheliometers (measuring direct solar radiation). The purpose of solar radiation measurement in photovoltaic (PV) systems is to compare the available resource to the system output and to determine efficiency.

Building Physics

Building Physics

In building physics, the investigation of the insulation capabilities of building materials is an important subject of study. Hukseflux is the present market leader in heat flux measurement related to building physics. The most commonly used sensor is type HFP01. Hukseflux supplies turn-key systems for analysis of thermal resistance of building envelopes and elements.

Material Characterization / Thermal Conductivity Measurement

Hukseflux is specialized in the measurement of thermal conductivity of plastics, composites, fluids, pastes, and granular materials like soils. Special capabilities include the measurement of composites in two directions (fiber and perpendicular to the fiber orientation), and the measurement of thin plastic and metal foil materials.

Concentrated Solar Tower

Concentrated Solar Thermal

Hukseflux supplies a category of special sensors for measurement of heat flux in boilers of solar concentrators. In these systems sunlight is concentrated by hundreds of mirrors on a receiver / boiler that converts water into steam. The steam powers a turbine for the generation of electricity. Our sensors are mounted in the boiler system to monitor the building of heat.

Thermal Route Survey

Hukseflux is the present market leader in the design of needle type thermal conductivity sensors. The main application of these sensors is in measurement of soil thermal conductivity and resistivity. There are two product categories: The first consists of scientific systems. The second category is systems designed for robustness rather than accuracy.
