Self-sufficient thermal water hybrid condensation plant
Without the construction of expensive infrastructure and only with the energy of the sun, our system produces first distilled and then potable water out of seawater. This purely thermal process does not require any chemistry or a separate electricity network. The required energy is self-produced and is included in the scope of supplies.
The natural circulation is imitated. The continuous movement of water through the physical processes of evaporation, condensation and precipitation is imitated in our plant.
a) water production of 0.3 m³ per solar hour
b) 300m² space requirement per plant
c) 20 m maximum distance to the point of withdrawal of the water to be desalinated
(via a water deposit)
d) Only a coarse filter for cleaning the sea water is necessary
e) In individual cases a water analysis is required
Through the solar thermic heating of saltwater up to 70°C lime percipitation and gypsum formation can occur. Since the foil heat exchangers are flexible, they can be mechanically freed from the possibly occurring gypsum. Even in case of less or no direct sunlight, the system works. The production volume is then significantlyl lower. The surfaces of the foil heat exchangers must always be kept clean to ensure direct exposure to the sun. Sand blurs are possible.
