The parabolic or concentrated oven consists of a parabolic-shaped reflector. Its shiny mirror-effect surface captures the sun's rays, concentrates them, and then reflects them onto the cooking surface located on the grid.
The solar concentrated oven is a device that uses a mirror-effect surface to concentrate solar light onto a very narrow focal point. This focal point can reach extremely high temperatures, up to several thousand degrees Celsius, making it a very powerful tool for producing thermal energy. Concentrated solar ovens are considered a clean and sustainable energy source that can replace conventional energy sources such as fossil fuels.
Use a rolling table, with a rectangular sheet that needs to be fixed with a drill and screws on the stand to place the tube that will support the parabolic dish later.
Stick the mirror film onto the entire surface of the parabolic dish by cutting it into small pieces to prevent bubbles from forming.
Attach the parabolic dish to the stand using the wrenches
Use the metal part of the parabolic dish that allows you to adjust the angle to align the plate's orientation with that of the parabolic dish by aiming at the focal point that will allow us to cook. We needed two spacers to tighten the bar against the stand in order to change the angle of inclination of the plate and adjust it with the angle of the parabolic surface stand. A bent metal sheet (using a vise) was also used to secure the bar on the parabolic dish.
