On this work a practical design to utilize the multistage evacuated solar still concept was developed. The mathematical model of the system was developed based on the energy and mass balance equations of the system. The system components were fabricated and the overall system was assembled. A prototype was constructed and tested at outdoor real solar radiation conditions. The experimental results show a significant improvement of the overall productivity relative to other systems.
