Sea Kettle – life raft turns sea water into drinking water


Just love the name and the concept behind the Sea Kettle, a marine life raft which contains its own simple desalination system to turn sea water into drinking water. Inspired by one of our fave products, the Watercone, the raft can produce 3 litres of water a day, more than enough for you and the ship’s cat. Genius.

 The Sea Kettle is meant to be an insulated, sturdy shelter able to turn sea water into fresh water. A person using the raft operates hand pumps within the cabin in order to draw sea water into a plastic reservoir on the roof. Heat from the sun causes the water to evaporate. The salt-free water vapor from the evaporated seawater can be captured and collected in containers within the raft’s walls.
