Abstract: The bin model solar instant water heater has been designed, fabricated and its performance has been evaluated in the Namakkal climatic conditions. Solar water heater is a required one, but it is expensive for rural people. In that case; the bin model solar instant water heater is a modern, simple and low cost system. This bin model solar instant water heater is fabricated without high cost components and the setup does not need the storage tank. This article presents and encompasses the technological developments of our setup. The performance and efficiency of bin model solar instant water heater is determined when using copper is an absorber part. The bin model solar instant water heater’s performance, efficiency, copper plate temperature, loss ratio, mass flow was calculated and presented. This bin model solar instant water heater is ecofriendly, it used for both domestic and industrial sectors.
