Resum
The basis of a novel method for passive solar water heating homologous to the thermosiphon but driven by induced salinity, which causes a fluid to circulate without the need for a mechanical pump and with inverse natural convection (downward heat transfer), is outlined. The brinesiphon, like the thermosiphon, operates by harnessing the tendency of a less dense fluid to rise above a denser fluid, resulting in fluid motion through a collector, but with two exceptions: first, the buoyancy is contro...
