Yuvaperiyasamy Mayilsamy; Senthilkumar Natarajan; Deepanraj Balakrishnan

Volume 11, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 10-17

  This experimental study investigates the performance of a single-slope solar desalination with a finned pond, considering varying glass cover angles, water depths, and the usage of sensible and latent heat materials for four different saline water types. Conventional solar stills (CSS) produce less distillate; ...  Read More

Optimization of Performance of Coarse Aggregate-Assisted Single-Slope Solar Still via Taguchi Approach

Ramasamy Dhivagar; Murugesan Mohanraj

Volume 8, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 13-19

  In this experimental work, the energy efficiency and performance parameters of a coarse aggregate-assisted single-slope solar still were analyzed using Taguchi analysis. The preheated inlet saline water was sent to the solar still using thermal energy accumulated in coarse aggregate to enhance its productivity ...  Read More

Improvement of Solar Still Productivity by Energy Absorbing Plates

Hitesh N. Panchal; P. K. Shah

Volume 1, Issue 1 , December 2014, , Pages 1-7

  A solar still is a viable option when the demand of potable water does not exceed more than 3 litres. Enhancement in distillate output from the solar still is a main goal of many researchers all over the world. In this research, the effect of copper and aluminium plates on distillate output is investigated ...  Read More
