Influence of Titanium Oxide Nanoparticle on Solar Desalination with Phase Change Material 2020-28-0464

The present study is focused on the significance of solar desalination heat storage method. The Solar energy is a prime source of energy existing directly or indirectly from the nature. The primary drawback of solar energy, which is existing in hours only. Thermal storage devices can overcome this problem as they can store the energy in daylight that can be utilized in off sunshine hours. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the increase in productivity of the solar desalination by using phase change material and combination of PCM with TiO2 (Nano particles). The present work is focused on performance of solar water desalination using Phase Change Materials along with TiO2 Nanoparticles. The Titanium Oxide Nanoparticles were synthesized by Sol-Gel method. The Titanium oxide Nano particles were characterized by XRD, SEM, EDS, and FTIR etc. In this experiment paraffin 34-carbons is used as phase change materials and Titanium Oxide Nanoparticles used for energy storage materials. The water is taken about 15(ltrs) and the optimal depth of water found to be 1cm. The energy materials paraffin 34-carbon along with TiO2 shown improvement in collection efficiency.
