Abstract

See full text

A solar distillation device and method of constructing same are disclosed. The device employs a fluid flow surface for controlling the thickness of a flowing, laminar fluid (i.e., seawater in preferred embodiments) film. The fluid is deposited on an upper end of the flow surface where a relatively thick layer forms. The fluid flows over a fluid dispersal region and then over an active region where the surface area is designed to control the fluid film thickness for maximum evaporation. An outer domed surface surrounds the fluid flow surface and may enhance the heating effect from the sun.
