Abstract

Domestic desalination is a process in which salt water is heated and converted to steam by using parabolic solar concentrator. Solar radiations incident on concentrator are focused at the absorber which contains salt water. The steam is then condensed by the condenser which is designed on the basis of the thermal analysis. Condenser is a basically a water tank with copper tubes immersed in it. The steam flows through the tubes and heat exchange takes place between steam and tank water which absorbs the heat from the steam by converting it to purified water. No electricity is used for the condensation and the equipment is suitable for a small family, having no or limited access to electricity.
