In this study a new desalination unit is established. It has four cells such as cooling cell, heating cell, evaporation cell and condensation cell. Seawater is pumped into cooling cell to be preheated and then goes to evaporation cell. In the new desalination unit the evaporation and condensation cell is heated and cooled by the heating and cooling cells respectively. The heating of the evaporation cell is ensured by hot water flowing upward along heating cells. The cooling of the condensation cell is ensured by seawater in cooling cell. Fluent 6.3 is used to simulate gas-liquid two-phase flow of boiling evaporation numerically. A simulation calculation to get fluid in a new desalination unit under the influence of the flow, pressure distribution and heat transfer performance of the evaporator.
