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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Elimination of chemical oxygen demand from domestic residual water by electrocoagulation with aluminum and iron electrodes
(Instituto de Pesquisas Ambientais em Bacias Hidrograficas, 2018)
This research determined the efficiency of removal of chemical oxygen demand (COD) by an electrocoagulation process. An electrocoagulation reactor with aluminum and iron electrodes was used to treat water from the treatment ...
Synthesis and Characterization of ZnO Nanorod Films on PET for Photocatalytic Disinfection of Water
(Science & Technology Network, Inc., 2015)
ZnO nanorods (ZnO NRs) were grown on ZnO seeded polyethylene tert-phtalate (PET) substrates obtained from recycled soda bottles at low temperatures (90 °C) from Zn2+ precursors in alkaline aqueous solution. The ZnO seeds ...
Removal of Escherichia coli from Domestic Wastewater using Electrocoagulation
(Polish Society of Ecological Engineering, 2019)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of electrocoagulation for the removal of Escherichia coli from domestic and urban wastewaters and to determine the effects of the main operational parameters on ...
Development of a Fuzzy Logic-Based Solar Charge Controller for Charging Lead–Acid Batteries
The design and implementation of a solar charge controller for lead–acid batteries is intended to supplement a component of the water purification module of the water treatment unit for natural disaster relief. This unit ...
Treatment of irrigation water infested with nematodes using a solar photoreactor
(Desalination Publications, 2020)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the disinfection of irrigation water loaded with the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita using a solar photoreactor. The photoreactor was comprised of a ...
Scaling up photoelectrocatalytic reactors: A TiO2 nanotube-coated disc compound reactor effectively degrades acetaminophen
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)
Multiple discs coated with hierarchically-organized TiO2 anatase nanotubes served as photoelectrodes in a novel annular photoelectrocatalytic reactor. Electrochemical characterization showed light irradiation enhanced the ...
Removal of nitrogen and phosphorus from domestic wastewater by electrocoagulation: Application of multilevel factorial design
(Polish Society of Ecological Engineering, 2020)
The main objective of this investigation was to evaluate the efficiency of electrocoagulation for the elimination of nitrogen and phosphorous from domestic wastewater and to determine the main operating parameters affecting ...
