Design and Fabrication of Solar Parabolic Collector for Water Distillation

9 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017

Abstract

From geographic data around the planet is covered around 70% with water, but out of total, only around 2% is of fresh water, and out of total fresh water, about 1.6% is not used because it is located in polar ice caps and glaciers. So total of the earth’s water, 98% is saltwater, 1.6% is in polar ice caps and glaciers, and 0.4% is drinkable water, which is available from underground wells or rivers. The survey shows that around 1 billion people, or 14.7% of the total earth’s population, still do not have pure safe drinkable water. So here an effort is made to design a water distillation system with use of the solar parabolic trough that can purify water from any source of water and convert it in to drinkable form. A solar parabolic trough collector is used to convert water into steam and later condense the steam to get pure water.

Keyphrases: Parabolic trough collector, solar energy, water distillation
