F.A.Q.s Water

1) How does an Atmospheric Water Generator Harvest Water…?

  1. Fresh air enters the machine in the evening through air filters
  2. Filtered air is cooled down to its dew point
  3. Condensation forms water and falls into the reservoir tank
  4. Water is pumped through filters
  5. Water undergoes reverse osmosis procedure
  6. Water is pumped through mineralizers up to top reservoir tank
  7. Pure water is stored in top reservoir tank and UV treated

2) Do Deserts have Humidity in the Evening…?
The humidity of the Mojave Desert changes throughout the day and night and from season to season. Average daytime relative humidity ranges from 10 percent to 30 percent. Nighttime humidity can be as high as 50 percent.

3) Why does Relative humidity go up at night?
If the water vapor content stays the same and the temperature drops, the relative humidity increases yet if the water vapor content stays the same and the temperature rises, the relative humidity decreases. This is because colder air doesn’t require as much moisture to become saturated as warmer air.

4) How Humid is the desert in daytime?
Humidity is near zero in most deserts. Light rains often evaporate in the dry air, never reaching the ground. Rainstorms sometimes come as violent cloudbursts. A cloudburst is the only time rain water reaches the deserts as much as 25 centimeters (10 inches) of rain in a single hour yet rarely occurs.
