Abstract

The need for pure drinking water in dry and remote areas is very acute particularly in Rajasthan, Kuchchh etc. The dry areas however have no shortage of solar energy which is available in plenty. Solar desalination is a technique to curb this problem in dry areas. The work presented in this paper relates to a cuboidal type solar still. The solar still is designed and a sheet of porous material (jute sack) is deployed on plane basin profile and saline water is fed by two different means. First still was fed by a reservoir kept at higher elevation and second one was fed by capillary action from reservoir kept at elevation lower than still. On this vary design, experimentation has been performed to compare the performance of cuboidal box type solar still with different feed systems and different parameters are measured in this process. The results are obtained at an inclination angle of 24Ëš which is best suited for Rewa Madhya Pradesh (coordinates 24.53ËšN, 81.3ËšE). In this performance comparison the measurement of productivity and temperatures at different points on solar still.
