  • A dirt sensor for solar plants

    The mirrors that incorporate the heliostats, parabolic concentrators or solar device are exposed to the toughest of atmospheric conditions and, in some cases, endure extreme conditions owing to the places where they are located, chosen to make the most of the hours of sunlight. The inclemency of the weather, like rain, wind or dust cause impurities and dirt to accumulate on the mirrors and the ...
