Abstract: Based on the perfect solar thermal energy harvesting paradigm of maximum solar radiation absorption and minimum loss of stored converted solar thermal energy, Solar Vacuum Glass Tubes (SVGT) indefinitely deliver solar pasteurized safe drinking water, powered solely by free solar energy. The SVGT is the heart of the SK-TF. Being vacuum insulated, the SK-TF doubles up as a vacuum flask, delivering stored solar heated water in the morning before the sun is up. With a high stagnation temperature of more than 220 C, the SK-TF can also be used for other heating purposes e.g. an oven or autoclave. Powered solely by free solar energy, the SK-TF could very well be the answer in providing safe solar pasteurized drinking water to the global poor and needy a sustainable and renewable way.
Keywords: solar kettle, vacuum tube, renewable energy, solar, water, pasteurization, developing world.
