Yes they are parallel to the air flow. 3/4 in apart, I can add one more, or take some out.

Hi Wayne-

Excellent timing. I expect to have my ZeroPass collector up and running this weekend, weather permitting. It will be great to have another design for comparison. I finished my basic 2-screen collector last weekend so I will be able to compare the efficiency between the two. I see you have a very simple way to change the spacing between the layers, but I don't see from your photo how you will close the plenum openings to match the spacing of the screen. I want to learn the Sketchup software so I can diagram the internals of my collector. My internals are more complicated than yours and would be difficult to understand without a cut-away. I do love the simplicity of your design. It makes me want to pound my head on my desk as tried to make my collector fully adjustable(read as over-engineered) from outside the collector box. My thoughts are that once I have figured the optimal configuration, a simple design, like yours, would become the basic build.
