Abstract:

Desalination is a process in which saline water is separated in two parts using different forms of energy. Here we are going to discuss desalination of saline water using solar energy. The solar distiller purifies water by first evaporating and then condensing it. Distilled water contains no salts, minerals or any organic impurities. This distilled water can be used for drinking purposes, applications in hospitals, replenishing batteries, and so on. Our try here is to enhance the solar still productivity using PCM and by varying the angle of the solar still from ground surface. Phase change materials are the thermal energy storage materials. They store energy in the process of changing their aggregate state from solid to liquid. PCM starts melting whenever temperature goes beyond its melting point. The experimental results illustrated that the use of PCM and angle variation with solar still is cost effective and viable in enhancing the evaporation rate as well as thermal conductivity hence freshwater production. Based on the performance evaluation, the daily productivity of freshwater was increased compared to conventional solar still.
