University of Kerbala Discussing an M.A Thesis on Design and Construct a Solar- desiccant Collector for Water Recovery from Air

Faculty of Engineering / University of Kerbala has discussed the M.A thesis which is entitled “design and construct of a solar-desiccant collector for water recovery from air.
The thesis, submitted by Alaa Nasser Hussein Alwan / Department of Mechanical Engineering, presents a new design for a desiccant solar collector.
The design includes six flat panels inside solar collector using three types of materials to absorb water vapor from the atmosphere, namely (blue silica, calcium chloride salt, and activated alumina).
These materials absorb moisture from air at night, while complex is recovered during the day by glass.
