AbstractThis paper analyses the effect of a solar chimney used to enhance the convective currents within a solar still. Moreover, a condenser was also installed to improve the condensation process. Condensers in solar stills typically consist of fresh seawater flowing through a bank of tubes. However, in the configuration presented, water vapour was passed through a number of ducts immersed in seawater. This solar still was constructed and tested under natural weather conditions using a typical… CONTINUE READING
