This Klimatec Base 1 AirWater Machine is a self-filling water cooler which extracts water from the air, purifies it and serves it up in nice refreshing dollops of goodness. Or something. We’re talking 20 litres every 24 hours, it can be solar powered and you can attach an optional fridge unit for super coldness. Sounds like a pretty neat plan, eh?
The atmosphere holds a lot of moisture which is free for the taking. Airwater uses refrigeration techniques to condense this humidity from air. Air driven by blowers is sucked into the system through an electro static filter. Cooled coils located in the path of air provide a temperature differential between the air and the coil surface resulting in condensation which is funneled into a holding tank which has a level switch controlling the water making cycle. Water is then passed through an active carbon filter to remove solids, oxygenates and to remove any odour. Water is finally passed through a UV light chamber to eliminate any bacterial content. Pure drinking hot and cold water is then supplied through the dispenser.
