In this paper, against the application background of brackish water desalination and seawater, the solar powered membrane distillation technology is applied to deal with brackish water desalination in the west of China, and this research work has laid the foundation for application of the solar membrane distillation system. The thermal performance and the structural characteristics of the glass evacuated solar collector tube with an inserted heat pipe have been compared with all-glass evacuated collector tube in this paper. The results in comparison with average heat loss coefficient, daily average efficiency and instantaneous efficiency by experiment have also been discussed. The...
