Established in 1986, Messrs MFC Srl started as a supplier of various OEM parts in forged and machined brass for many different applications.
With approx. 25 employees and 7 transfer machines we are in condition to satisfy demands for almost any kind of brass components, some of which may be seen on our website: www.mfclavorazionimeccaniche.it where you wil find also other alloys available on demand.
Based in one of the most important metalworking areas in Europe, we work in close cooperation with many sub suppliers and are thus in condition to source valves, components, cast or turned parts, spares, surface treatments, a.s.o.
In the meantime, being the that solar thermal systems are becoming more and more popular throughout Europe and the World, we studied a range of solar thermal components suitable for most part of the currently available systems.
These often overlooked but still essential components were carefully and specially designed in order to withstand thermal and mechanical stresses, so as to ensure the uninterrupted exploitation of the system itself. All parts are manufactured in Italy, material is brass according to EN12164, 12165, 12168 suitable for use in solar thermal installation.
As everybody is trying to get into Photovoltaics and considering the financial aspects involves, one would say why address the issue of components for solar thermal systems?
This question has some comparatively obvious answers, i.e.: firstly, we prefer to offer our advice and cooperation in areas where, as specialists in metal working our expertise is solid and well founded, to be in condition to get the best possible results, from the manufacturer down to the final consumer, who definitely will be happy with the sola thermal products he purchased.
Another key reason is that the conversion of solar irradiation directly into heat energy for e.g. domestic purposes is one of the less cost-intensive, i.e. cheapest, forms of renewable energy: as a matter of fact, the investment cost per kWh for solar thermal systems in domestic environments is merely a fraction of what a comparable PV – based system would require, not to mention the much lower operating costs.
Therefore, we are confident that in realising at our best what is within our scope of possibilities, and helping others, be they customers or final consumers, in achieving a change from burning non-renewable fossil fuels, we are actually giving a contribution, however small, towards the improvement of our environment.
