AWA is a project that started in 2004, and after 15 years of investigation and development we had been able to develop and test our technology concept which can generate water from atmospheric humidity in an autonomous, extended and inexpensive way; known as AWA.
This is a brief general presentation of our project so you can become a user, customer or active collaborator of our AWA world. Help us to help, improving life quality for thousands of people.
the weather conditions of the word if we used this hold water. what I
can say is that numbers speak on their own, and it would be impossible to affect the environment in any way if we took advantage of this inexhaustible water resource.
Factors and consequences of AWA technology for an atmospheric water exploitation strategic design and human consumption.
As everyone knows air is a gas so it has a verified physical behaviour.
Pure gas o air is heavier than its impure version. This peculiarity allows it to hold impurity particles in suspension.
The number of particles in humidity or vapour depends on the temperature conditions.
30ºC or more (86ºF) air temperature can hold a maximum of 36grs water per air m3.
20ºC (68ºF) air temperature can hold 17g of water.
7ºC (44.6ºF) air temperature can hold 6.5g of water.
Another gas propriety is that when it compressed, it heats; and when it expands suffers an abrupt reduction in temperature. One example of this is the mechanical use of the fridge; the engine comprises the gas and its temperature rise to 85ºC (185ºF), and when it is expanded by enlarging the transporting section instantly produces a thermal leap to -12ºC (10.4ºF).
Specific heat, durability, and lack of toxicity were considered to choose materials. The expression kgJ/kg o BTU/Fº was used to determine specific heat.
There are three noble materials used in standard industry which support the highest specific heat.
Aluminium: 0.909 J/(kg.k)
Glass: 0.838 J/(kg.k)
Concrete: 0.880 J/(kg.k)
Over the irregular surface of the planet there is a permanent winds layer that has higher or lesser intensity depending mainly on the atmospheric pressure. It is necessary to know that wind is always present after 15 meters over the natural land level and it has a steady frequency which intensifies at 40 mts. over the natural land level.
The impossibility of having electric power available in every corner of the world, which in general do not have water either, lead us to design a system able to take advantage of the winds cinematic force to be able to generate water in an autonomous way…
Ground humidity and temperature:
According to the geothermically studies, the temperature of the superficial layer of the earth in the first 128cm depth, it varies between 5ºC y 23ºC depending on humidity, solar effect, and superficial vegetation.
The median value in a 2m depth in earth is 8ºC.
The AWA Atmospheric Water Generator Plant tower:
The inner tower diameter determines the volume of flow for the water the tower section is 7m²for a 40m. We will define this section as 100%.
Let’s take an operation example: 10km per hour wind.
10km= 10,000m/h. suction capability: 10,000x7m²= 70,000m³air mass per hour.
The system not only Works with the power of the wind, but it also has a physical action on the air mass ascending breeze. The tower Works as a chimney flue that produces water even when there is no wind (in smaller amount though).
The suction ducts should have a minimal distance to the centre of the chamber. This ensures heat transfer from the air to the duct walls.
The air loses temperature inside the ducts, it starts to condense humidity, and forms a water base which helps to reduce air temperature gradually.
The winds suction power over the tower summit suctions the air mass very strongly when it enters the suction ducts. The section difference and flow power between the tower and the suction ducts accelerate and in certain way compress the air mass. It is so because when certain volume enters and it is forced to pass through a minor section; it speeds up and as it is not enough to relieve its volume, this compress.
The six ducts converge in a tangential, clockwise way on the condensation chamber walls to generate a circular current air mass inside the condensation chamber and the tower circular current generates an extraordinary air cinematic force that rises the system suction power in the suction ducts.
It is a cylindric condensation chamber built in elaborated concrete. It has walls with a steel soul of building iron.
Half of it is buried under the natural ground, and half of it on the surface. This chamber is a wide, dark and humid place with a crystal condensator nucleus as a centre.
The wind that goes over the tower summit produces a vacuum or suction inside the tower that induces the intake of the air mass through the suction nozzles. These suction nozzles are 1 meter over the natural ground (at this high the air is loaded with atmospheric humidity, and ground transpiration that is warm and humid). Within the ground the environment changes abruptly to about 10ºC. (50ºF). When water starts to condensate inside the ducts the environment becomes wet and cool forming a water layer in the base of the ducts and the temperature lowers even more till it stabilizes.
The air in its trip loses heat, it gets accelerated and compress. When it gets to the condensation chamber it pulverizes and abruptly lowers its temperature reaching 7ºC (44.6ºF).
At this point it has reached the steam point; and at 7ºC (44.6ºF) the holding capacity of the air is 6.5g. so the excedent plunges inside the chamber.
The crystal nucleus has a 430m2 surface with opposed static electricity induced panels where the residual humidity particles start to condense.
When the air mass traverses the tower in ascending spiral way, the excess humidity particles start to condensate on the tower internal walls and on the turbulence cone. These cones work as the air mass compressor and expansion which keeps a stable temperature to be able to condense by the thermal differential.
The gather water is filtered by means of a gross particle filter, and a carbon activate filter; then when it gets to the tank a UV filter is used.
When in dusty or desertic environments the gross particles filter must be clean once a week, in normal pollution conditions it must be cleaned once a month together with the crystals. The task requests 8 man working hours.
The AWA towers are structures that allow the installation of solar air forces in the summit. This could triple the air mass flow in time unit and guarantees 200,000 m3 air mass per hour. The profit here would be acquire mainly in the dew point, and the crystal panels together with the tower metal inside would keep on producing by saturation but not in higher volume than usual.
Water has a specific of 4,182 J/kg ºC.
We install an aluminium tubular grill with circulating expanded air in a low controlled temperature. This procedure would convert the condensation chamber into a hybrid water condensation system by means of thermal-electrical differential. This gets better water production than any conventional electrical atmospheric generator. That is why it will have huge advantages over the market standard models with a cero working cost.
