Solar still is a best alternative solution against most of the conventional water distillation system. The multilayer absorber plate type solar still is the more effective technique to enhance the passive solar still productivity. The experiment has been carried out to find out the best thickness of copper conduction path for the multilayer absorber plate type solar still. The results have concluded that the productivity of solar still is reduced with increasing the conduction path thickness and water depth. The maximum productivity of distilled water has been produced in the multilayer absorber type solar still with 0.5cm thick copper conduction path and 1cm water depth.
