In today’s world the demand for freshwater, to meet the needs of human activities is growing exponentially. As a result, manufacturers are continuing to make progress in the design and production of efficient desalination and cooling units to optimize and reduce the overall cost of production. In this work, we study the numerical study of the evaporation of a thin liquid film dripping by gravity with constant feed rates in a closed rectangular cavity formed by two parallel flat plates. The wall which supports the liquid film is heated by a constant temperature heating, while the other is kept at a constant and uniform temperature to condense the formed vapor. The results obtained show that the heat transfer in the distillation cell is dominated by the latent heat transfer associated with the evaporation. The results also show that the temperature of the film increases slightly for the heating zone and then decreases over most of the plate for the evaporation zone
