Q: What is an atmospheric water generator (AWG)?
A: It is a machine that extracts moisture from the air through a condensation process to produce perfectly pure drinking water.
Q: Can I use this for my home?
A: Yes there are models that are perfect for home use. The home units are able to make from 5 litres to 33 litres per day.
Q: Can I use this for commercial or industrial applications?
A: Yes there are models, like The African Rainmaker™, that are capable of making up to 1600 litres of perfectly pure water each day.
Q: Surely it is ideal for bottling in places where there are water restrictions that prevent bottling of water.
A: Yes we have been doing this for over 10 years now. The bottling plant can be manual or automated; pre-engineered or custom made and can be stand alone (containerised).
Q: Is the water produced pure and safe?
A: Yes, the water is absolutely pure as well as great tasting. The filtration system, includes reverse osmosis. It is extremely effective using multiple safeguards as well as UV light to eradicate any bacteria.
Q: Is taking water from the atmosphere harmful to the environment?
A: The hydrological cycle takes care of that. The water used is constantly evaporating back into the air making the process 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Q: Is there enough water in the air to produce water every day?
A: Yes indeed, there are 100 million billion litres of water in the atmosphere at any given time and it all returns to the atmosphere once used.
Q: Can I really get pure drinking water from (sometimes) polluted air?
A: The AWG process starts with air filtration before it passes through the rest of the filtration process eliminating any chance of air pollution having any effect on the water produced.
Q: Is it expensive to produce water with an AWG?
A: The water produced is perfectly pure and much cheaper than bottled water.
Q: How much electricity does the AWG for home and office use?
A: Most home units are 450w – 550w using about the same power as a plasma screen TV and the larger units require 3 phase power.
