Meccanotecnica Umbra is an Italian company and world leader in the design and manufacture of rotary joints for CSP systems, and renewable energy applications. Meccanotecnica Umbra offers technologically advanced solutions for the solar and clean energy industries, manufactured to the highest standards to ensure a high quality product. Meccanotecnica Umbra continues to improve its technological know-how and train its staff to provide high quality, custom-made products in every application area.
Meccanotecnica Umbra has developed and implemented a specific rotary joint system for CSP (Concentrated Solar Plant); a type of technology that is not new but, until now, it has been unsafe in some cases, especially due to possible diathermic oil leaks. For this reason, MTU has developed a zero-loss rotary joint (patent pending). Nowadays, plants often use molten salt instead of thermal oil, but this solidifies below 240°C. The MTU rotary joint has a patent-pending heating system that avoids this problem. In addition, rotary joints completely avoid this failure by increasing plant reliability with a maintenance-free solution.
The rotary joints designed by Meccanotecnica Umbra ensure maximum insulation and the highest degree of resistance due to their specific design for solar power plants. Furthermore, we pay the utmost attention to the selection of construction materials used to make the various joint models, to ensure efficient mechanical solutions and quality processes for our customers.
