ASTM-E781 › Standard Practice for Evaluating Absorptive Solar Receiver Materials When
Exposed to Conditions Simulating Stagnation in Solar Collectors With Cover Plates
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This practice covers a test procedure for evaluating absorptive solar receiver materials and coatings when exposed to sunlight under cover plate(s) for long durations. This practice is intended to evaluate the exposure resistance of absorber materials and coatings used in flat-plate collectors where maximum nonoperational stagnation temperatures will be approximately 200°C (392°F).
1.2 This practice shall not apply to receiver materials used in solar collectors without covers (unglazed) or in evacuated collectors, that is, those that use a vacuum to suppress convective and conductive thermal losses.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
