    Abstract :

    Pure water production is considered as an utmost necessity, especially in the arid and remote areas. One of the most important processes in this production is the distillation using an alternative source as a power supply. Recently, solar distillation systems were widely studied, mainly because of its low cost and ease of use. In the present study, the effect of air velocity and presence of wire screen mesh on a conventional single slop solar still performance were investigated experimentally. It is found that the solar still productivity can be improved by 22.8% with increasing of air velocity up to 4 m/s. Adding a wire screen mesh with increasing of air velocity, up to 2.5 m/s, resulted in an increase of the solar still productivity up to 36.6%.
