Solar energy is the most important non conventional source of energy because of its non-polluting nature. Solar dry cleaning is the simplest, safest and most convenient way to dry clean clothes without consuming any fuel or heating up the appliances which use solar energy. In this Paper the thermal performance of Scheffler Reflector at Gajraj Drycleaners is evaluated. The Experimental investigations were carried out to determine performance of solar scheffler Reflector during summer season in Nagar (18° 20' N, 78° 12' E). In this solar thermal system total 15 dishes of 16 sq. meters Scheffler Reflector are used which generates 150 0C temp. In this method a primary reflecting parabolic surface concentrates the solar radiation on it and reflects them on to the secondary reflectors. This secondary reflector then focus the incident radiation at the point of interest, thus generated heat/steam can be used for huge dry cleaning purpose. In this work the design of 16sq.m solar reflector is analysed which can be used for dry clean the cloths for 100-110 people every day conveniently by generating steam.
