Desalination using a parabolic-trough concentrator
(Allerton Press Inc., 2012)
There are presented desalination results by using a parabolic-trough concentrator (PTC) device of 5.5 m2, 0.7 m of line focal distance and aligned in the East—West direction. The length of the PTC is 2.5 m and its rectangular ...
Comparison between solar distillers with and without solar concentrator
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2016)
In order to desalinate sea water by only solar energy using they were designed and built three distillers in which experimental measurements were taken to calculate production, performance and cost. Distillers by solar ...
Preliminary overview and evaluation of a stepped solar distiller with internal reflective walls and borosilicate vacuum tubes
(Elsevier BV, 2017)
The present study demonstrates that the current use of stepped solar distillers can be enhanced to increase seawater desalination. To this end, we designed a stepped solar still with internal reflective walls and attached ...
Design and construction of a fresnel linear distiller
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2014)
It was designed a Fresnel linear distiller based on optical calculations obtained from taking into account Lima's latitude value, Earth inclination angle and heat absorber cavity's dimensions. The 5.6 m^sup 2^ reflective ...
