Abstract

This paper reports some preliminary studies made in preparation for the design of a solar powered loop for desalination by humidfication - dehumidfication process. The studies concentrated on the evaluation of different parameters affecting the performance of the combination of different components in such a loop in the hope of outlining the most decisive factors for the choice or design of solar collectors or heat source. The results presented here relate to the performance of two of the most important components in a loop of such purpose, that is : the humidifying and the dehumidifying columns or stacks.
