"Water, water everywhere, Nor any drop to drink" Atmospheric Water Condensers
Region:Bay Area
City:Oakville, ON
School:Oakville Christian School
Abstract:Atmospheric water condensers are being developed in this project to provide drinking water. A covered prototype was designed with aerodynamic internal components and constructed from stainless steel. Windcatcher attachments were designed and constructed to divert air into the condenser. Aerodynamic changes resulted in a greater water condensing efficiency and the prototype functioned in a natural environment. The water yield was greater than conventional planar condensers.
