QSBRI Inc. specializes in commercializing technology in the energy sector with a strong focus on heating and solar heating applications.  
Passive Back Flow (PBF) 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 develop new Intellectual Property and seeks licensing partners worldwide.

Featured Technologies

QSBRI is currently commercializing two innovative technologies: Passive Back Flow (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 .
