MAKEWATER FROM AIR
First Rural Project In The World To Supply Drinking Water From Air. Set Up In 2009
Jalimudi in Andhra Pradesh is the world’s first village to use atmospheric water
Few taps in the village.
Nearest river source over 3 km away.
Ground water contained fluoride.
Hours wasted in collection of water
Scope of Work:
Water Production Process
Requiring only electricity or alternate energy sources, Water Maker uses optimized
dehumidification techniques to condense water from air.
Blower driven forced air is drawn into the system through an electrostatic filter.
Within the machine’s exterior a housing compressor circulates refrigerant through a coil
array located in the path of the air.
The chilled coils provide a temperature differential between the air and coil surface
resulting in condensation.
Heat is removed by a heat exchanger. Freeze protection is thermostatically controlled.
Water Storage & Filtration System
he condensation is funneled into a holding tank.
A level switch located in the holding tank controls the machine’s water making cycle.
Water in the holding tank is in direct contact with the submersible UV filter (which kills
bacteria) and later through a series of pre & post carbon & UF filter. The water filtration
cycle is both flow controlled (upon dispensing) and time controlled.
Water is dispensed by tap valve diversion during the water filtration cycle.
