Performance Analysis of Vapour Adsorption Solar Still Integrated with Mini-solar Pond for Effluent Treatment

Dr. K. Srithar

Abstract—Industrial effluent was evaporated in a single basin solar still and an Integrated vapour adsorption solar still separately. To preheat the saline water, a mini solar pond was integrated with these stills. Both the stills were operated with mini solar pond and tested individually. In single basin solar still, maximum productivity is obtained, when it is modified with sponge, pebbles and sand. The Vapour adsorption solar still was modified with sand, pebble and sponge to enhance their productivities. When mini solar pond, pebble, sponge and sand are used in Vapour adsorption solar still, maximum productivity was obtained. To settle the industrial effluent, a settling tank was also fabricated with five layers namely: tray for raw effluent, pebble layer, coal layer, sand layer and collection tray for settled effluent. Physical and chemical analyses were made for raw effluent, settled effluent and distilled water.

Index Terms—Effluent, Mini solar pond, Single Basin type,Vapour adsorption type solar still.
