Atmospheric Water Generators

An atmospheric water generator (AWG), is a device that extracts water from humid ambient air. Water vapor in the air is condensed

by cooling the air below its dew point, exposing the air to desiccants, or pressurizing the air. Unlike a dehumidifier, an AWG is designed to render the water potable. AWGs are useful where pure drinking water is difficult or impossible to obtain, because there is almost always a small amount of water in the air that can be extracted.














Cooling condensation


In a cooling condensation type atmospheric water generator, a compressor circulates refrigerant through a condenser and then an evaporator coil which cools the air surrounding it. This lowers the air temperature to its dew point, causing water to condense. A controlled-speed fan pushes filtered air over the coil. The resulting water is then passed into a holding tank with purification and filtration system to help keep the water pure and reduce the risk posed by viruses and bacteria which may be collected from the ambient air on the evaporator coil by the condensing water.

The rate at which water can be produced depends on relative humidity and ambient air temperature and size of the compressor. Atmospheric water generators become more effective as relative humidity and air temperature increase. As a rule of thumb, cooling condensation atmospheric water generators do not work efficiently when the temperature falls below 18.3°C (65°F) or the relative humidity drops below 30%. This means they are relatively inefficient when located inside air-conditioned offices. The cost-effectiveness of an AWG depends on the capacity of the machine, local humidity and temperature conditions and the cost to power the unit.
















Why Airowater?


Most companies today rely on plastic bottled water as their main source of drinking water – an unsustainable and expensive option that poses increased health risks and an exorbitant carbon footprint.
Airowater brings a sustainable, cost effective and healthy solution to supplying pristine drinking water to remote businesses, commercial buildings and the hospitality industry.



















Climate Control System

To operate at optimal levels, the technology requires ambient humidity of at least 40% and a temperature of 18ºC. In places where the humidity or temperatures fall below optimal levels, Airowater’s revolutionary Climate Control System is coupled to the water generator and uses recycled grey water or harvested rainwater to artificially create humidity in the air. This humidity is then re-condensed and passed through advanced filtration processes to give pristine drinking water.


Remote Telemetry

The availability of drinking water can be mission-critical to many businesses.
To ensure peace-of-mind, Airowater provides remote telemetry to their clients, displaying water production, water stocks, machine productivity and up-time. Potential problems can be addressed as early as possible, thereby ensuring business continuity.



Benefits of Airowater


  • Affordable water production

      Airowater water is cost effective since logistic, waste management and transportation costs are removed.

  • Superior quality
    The water is produced from water vapour where water-borne diseases cannot survive and doesn’t risk containing chemicals associated with plastic bottled water.

  • Environment Friendly
    Airowater water is made on-site and piped directly to outlets reducing its carbon footprint.

  • A sustainable solution
    Atmospheric moisture is used to create Airowater water making it a sustainable solution amidst a growing water crisis.

  • Financial savings
    Airowater will save you money over time when compared to other sources of drinking water.

  • Health
    Airowater does not risk plastics leeching dangerous chemicals into the water.

  • Remote telemetry
    Airowater's remote telemetry ensures enough water to meet your needs.

  • Climate Control System (CCS)
    CCS maintains prime humidity and temperature levels for consistent optimal performance.
