Evacuated tubes absorb solar energy and convert it into heat for use in solar power applications. An evacuated tube consists of two glass tubes made from extremely strong borosilicate glass.

The outer tube is transparent and allows sunlight to pass through with minimal reflection. The heat pipe solar collector system uses pressurized vacuum tubes which transfer solar energy to a main heating pipe. The vacuum tubes contain a copper pipe which is filled with liquid.

When the pipe is heated, the liquid inside it vaporizes and rises up to the condenser at the top, transferring the heat to the water passing through it. This work reports the design, numerical modeling, and optimization of a new solar water heater using a heat pipe parabolic trough collector (HPPTC) with low concentration ratio.

The heat pipe evaporator is positioned on the focal axis of the reflector, while the condenser section is completely immersed in the water cylindrical : Moulay Ahmed Janan, Mohamed Taqi, Hamid Chakir.
