Boiling point elevation is a thermodynamic property that measures the difference in boiling temperature of a pure solvent and that of a solution at the same pressure. It is important to determine the correct boiling point of solutions for heat exchanger design and different applications involving thermal-based desalination technologies. This chapter explains multicomponent models, correlation, and data used to estimate boiling point elevation at different salinity and temperature values. Besides, the calculated boiling point elevation values from the correlations and methods are compared and assessed against the experimental data of seawater. This chapter suggests some correlations and methods based on their accuracy and operating conditions. Also, the codes used for the investigated methods are supplied.
