How does the Air-to-Water work?
The Air-to-Water unit uses a turbine that pushes air through a heat exchanger. Here the air is cooled and condensation takes place. This process can be controlled with the help of energy from natural sources, but also with traditional energy sources.
Lowering the temperature of air requires minimal energy. When the temperature falls below the dew point,
water droplets will form. These drops are then collected in a water storage compartment. The actual amount of water that can be produced differs per location and depends on the average wind speed, the ambient temperature and the humidity. To make the system work under different conditions, the turbine can be adapted to the environment in which it is used.
- Produce drinking water from the air - no other water source required
- Up to 5,000, 10,000 or 20,000 liters of drinking water per day per machine
- Multiple units can be combined for larger projects
- Choice of power sources: wind, solar, grid, generator or hybrid combinations
- Minimum air temperature:> 15 ° C / 59 ° F
- For wind force, wind speed of 3 - 18 meters per second (6.7 - 40 miles per hour)
Where can the Air-to-Water be used?
- Humanitarian applications in traditional areas with water scarcity
- Island and rural communities with limited freshwater supplies
- Temporary humanitarian applications in disaster or war zones
- Growing industrial and commercial applications
- CSR programs for companies
- Commercial and industrial
The Air-to-Water can be powered by various energy sources, including a windmill. Watch in our product video how the technology behind it works.
