Abstract

Due to clean water crisis in the dry season in some places in Indonesia, experiments to find the best distiller to provide distilled water were performed. The long-term goal of this study is to create a distiller that is cheap, simple, easy to make, durable, low maintenance, but produces plenty of distilled water. Three identical conventional distillers with different absorbers had been tested for about 6 days in May 2019. These three distillers were used to evaporate and condense seawater to be distilled water. The absorbers types employed were type A, B, and C. The results show that the distiller with the type C absorber is the best distiller. The distilled water produced is 1.3 liter per day. Therefore, this distilleris recommended to use, develop and study further.
