The invention relates to an improved evaporator and condenser unit for use in distilling a liquid such as water. The evaporator and condenser unit includes a plurality of stacked, spaced-apart plates disposed within a housing. The plates are horizontally arranged around a common, vertical axis for rotation. Adjacent plates define spaces between their oppositely facing surfaces, which are alternating configured as evaporating and condensing chambers. An outlet tube transfers vapor generated within the housing to a compressor and an inlet tube delivers com...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. An evaporator-and-condenser unit for use in a vapor compression distiller comprising:A. a motor;B. a compressor having a compressor inlet and a compressor outlet;C. a heat exchanger coupled to the motor for rotation thereby about an axis of rotation and comprising:1. first and second end plates having respective inner faces; and2. a plate stack connected between the first and second end plates and including a plurality of spaced-apart heat-exchange plates, each heat-exchange plate having a center point and an axis that passe...
