Development of Basin Solar Still by Providing Magnetic Treatment Unit and Double Glass Cover
K.Amzad Ali | R. J. V.Anil Kumar
Abstract: In the recent years, we are facing severe water problems. There is little pure water left on earth and nearly all of this is polluted by both pollutants and toxic chemicals. Single basin solar still is a popular solar device used for converting available brackish or waste water into potable water. Because of its lower productivity, it is not popularly used. The yield of the single basin solar still is very less compared to that of other conventional desalination methods. The basin solar still was developed by adding a magnetic treatment unit and double glass cover. The study was conducted by testing the solar still by using magnetic treatment unit with single and double glass cover, non-magnetic treatment unit with single and double glass cover. Parameters like temperature in the basin solar still, glass cover surface temperature, ambient temperature, productivity, efficiency and other properties will be calculated and compared for all the above mentioned tests.
