Solar Water Purifier

Authors(3) :-Mukesh Kumar Verma, Yogendra Kumar Tarak, Rakesh Singh

A parabolic trough is a type of solar thermal collector that is straight in one dimension (Z-axis) and curved as a parabola in the other two (X and Y-axis), lined with a polished mirror like finish metal. The energy of sunlight which enters the collector parallel to its plane of symmetry is focused along the focal line where the vacuum tube is placed. The vacuum that surrounds the outside of the tube greatly reduces convection and conduction heat loss, therefore achieving greater efficiency than flat-plate collectors. A sedimentation tank allows suspended particles to settle out of water or wastewater as it flows slowly through the tank, thereby providing some degree of purification. Carbon filters are very effective at removing chlorine, benzene, radon, solvents trihalomethane compounds, volatile organic chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides and hundreds of other man-made chemicals that may come into contact with tap water as it proceeds through the system. In addition chlorine is added with the help of salt tank & filters remove bad tastes and odours from the water. After this filtration by carbon filter, water is then passed to evacuated vacuum tubes for remaining purification.
