A Global Cleantech Company

QSBR Innovations Inc. is an Research & Development  firm with a focus in solar thermal energy and heat transfer.

Areas of Expertise:
  • System Design - turning conceptual ideas into final designs   
  • System Optimization - taking existing system and optimizing performance based on computer modeling and simulation 
  • System Assembly - building functioning prototypes for laboratory and field testing
  • Building energy modeling for high performance buildings 
  • Solar System design, Certification and Sales through our sales division Quality Solar Systems, (QSS)

QSBRI also holds several patents in heat transfer and solar thermal. Automatic Back Flush (ABF) technology prevents fouling and scale build up in heat exchangers.  Allowing for the use of compact plate heat exchangers in applications and regions previously inaccessible due to hard water. 
Integral Stagnation Control (ISC) prevent overheating in solar thermal and PVT collectors, optimizing performance and reliability.

Working with Dr. Stephen Harrison, director of the Solar Calorimetric Laboratory at Queen’s University, QSBRI works to provide fast, accurate consulting services as well as developing new Intellectual Property and seeking licensing partners worldwide.

Featured Technologies

QSBRI is currently commercializing two innovative technologies: Passive Back Flush (PBF) and Integral Stagnation Control (ISC).  These two technologies are the result of years of research and development by Dr. Stephen Harrison and have a decade of tested, recorded experience.  Both have numerous applications in the global solar and HVAC industries and QSBRI is currently working with partners to develop these technologies into commercial successes .
