Atmospheric Water Generator??


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An Atmospheric water generator (AWG), is a device that extracts water from humid ambient air. An AWG operates in a manner very similar to that of a dehumidifier: air is passed over a cooled coil, causing water to condense. The rate of water production depends on the ambient temperature, humidity, the volume of air passing over the coil, and the machine's capacity to cool the coil. An AWG is very useful for locations where pure drinking water is difficult to obtain or impossible to have, as there is almost always a small amount of water in the air. It is estimated that 12,900 cubic kilometers (or 0.04%) of the earth's total supply of fresh water is contained in the atmosphere, mostly as water vapor
