Abstract

The device used to produce fresh water from saline water with the use of solar energy is commonly known as solar still. The productivity of simple solar still (conventional still) is nearly 1 - 2 L/m2/day. Many researchers and scientists have performed experiments on different designs of solar still to improve their performance. Double basin solar still is one of the design of solar still having higher productivity 30-40 % than conventional solar still. Productivity and efficiency of this types of solar still can be further increased by using evacuated tube collector, internal heat exchanger, and wick materials used with it. This review article describe the attempts by different researchers to increase the productivity of double basin solar still. A double basin solar still is consist of two basin still in which one basin is mounted on another. The main benefit of using this system is that the amount of latent heat energy of vapour which is condensed at lower surface of inclined glass cover in lower basin is used in heating the upper layer of water rather than heat loss to the ambient.
