ABSTRACT
A double-sided wet fabric evaporator is suggested, which has a potential to concentrate seawater up to a high concentration in a very short fabric length of around 2 m. Model simulations show that evaporation from both sides of the fabric effectively cools the fabric which gains a large amount of heat from the surroundings for the nighttime and emits a small amount of heat loss to surroundings for the sunny daytime. Under the subtropical and maritime climate conditions of Okinawa Island, the evaporator produces evaporation amount of 5.23 kg/day-m² fabric on average. The solar-aided evaporation accounts for 63% of the total evaporation amount of 6.01 kg/day-m² fabric in humid and sunny July, and it does for 24% of the total amount of 5.03 kg/day-m² fabric in less-humid and cloudy January.
