Solar Water Distilation Plant

The paper describes the development of an effective and economical solar water distillation plant to produce, in commercial quality, distilled water of high purity as is required by pharmaceutical, chemical, food industries, etc. The plate is currently undergoing a series of performance tests. Initial results show that the improved unit can produce larger quantities (up to 30 litres per day) of high quality distilled water.
