Thermal desalination plants consume large quantities of heat energy for seawater evaporation. In condensing water vapor procured in evaporators and cooling distillate, a major part of heat energy is lost in... desalters in the environment results in its heat pollution, a greenhouse effect. Thermodynamic analysis described in this paper shows that the heat pumps make it possible to use heat energy effectively at desalination plants. It is provided with the incorporation of a heat pump in the flow diagram o ...
