PENGGUNAAN SOLAR COLLECTOR SEBAGAI PEMANAS AWAL AIR MASUK DAN PEMANAS TAMBAHAN BAWAH HEAT ABSORBER PADA BASIN SOLAR STILL UNTUK MENINGKATKAN EFISIENSI
AbstractAll basin solar still in general use under the askew glass cover as condensation media to
place the condensate flows toward the lower sections with use gravitation. It is known that
when condensation occurs release considerable heat energy to environment. Solve this
problem, in this research is to minimize the loss of substantial energy, utilizing the heat from
the solar collector. Heat is supplied to the bottom of the heat absorber and heat exchanger.
Research methods is experiment. In this research is examine both the prototype, that is basin
solar still with solar collector and basin solar still without solar collector. The measured
parameter is temperature button section heat absorber, outside heat absorber, button
section of glass cover, condensate water, environment, solar collector, heat exchanger and
In this result temperature average at button section heat absorber is 47,03oC for prototype
with solar collector and without solar collector is 45,25oC. Solar radiation average is 304,11
W/m2. Efficiency both prototype is 29,45% with solar collector and 19,86% without solar
collector. By comparing efficiency two prototype is concluded that the Solar Collector as
preheater water and additional heating of water under heat absorber 67.45% better than that
without using Solar Collector.
