Water is extracted from the surrounding atmosphere using an optimized combination of condensation and absorption technologies. The extraction process is dynamically optimized using an intelligent control system. This system senses the ambient conditions and puts the unit into the optimum operating mode, for example, some environments may require additional heating. This allows the machines to generate the maximum water output in the most efficient way.
The process can essentially be considered in three stages:
The control systems sensors monitor the surrounding atmospheric conditions to determine if condensation and/or absorption into desiccant material is required for optimum efficiency.
The Hogen Water Generators range in size to suit all needs from 10 litres per day up to 2,500 litres per day, by placing units in series to generate the desired amount.
Is there enough water in the air to produce drinking water?
In short, the simple answer is yes.
The water cycle, also called the hydrologic cycle, involves the continuous circulation of water in the Earth-atmosphere system. Evaporated water can stay in the air for 10 days and there is around 37.5 million-billion gallons of water in the atmosphere! This allows for AWG technology to be an ideal source of potable water with minimal environmental and ecological impact.
