Solar Water Pasteurization Literature Review
Research Goals[edit | edit source]
I am currently working to fabricate and test a solar water pasteurizer under Joshua M. Pearce. Our pasteurizer will incorporate a trough for solar heating, a thermostatic valve, and a heat exchanger to make the system more efficient. The heat exchanger will be manufactured by utilizing a laser welder to melt specific lines on very cheap or recycled polymer.
