Purification of water, Solar still


Drinking water is still a big problem in most arid and remote area. There is almost no water left on earth that is safe to drink without purification after 20-25 years from today. This is seemingly bold statement, but it is unfortunately true. Only 1% of earth water is in a fresh, liquid state and nearly all polluted by both diseases and toxic chemicals. For this reason purification of water supplies is very important. The research work was under taken to design and performance evolution of inverted pyramid type solar distillation unit at Department of Renewable Energy Sources, CAET, Talsande, Kolhapur. In this study, Inverted Pyramid type solar still was designed and fabricated, and performance evaluation was carried. The distillated output was 350 ml. the maximum thermal efficiency was 32.2 %.
