The CLOUDBURSTE features the newest
technology in atmospheric water generation
High-efficiency atmospheric water generation apparatus
This technology increases the effciency of all AWS atmospheric water generation
systems by utilizing a two-stage cooling mechanism to allow a tight regulation of
condensation coil temperature without resorting to the use of complex and expensive
inverter compressor techniques. Conventional atmospheric water generation turns a
refrigeration compressor off and on such that the condensation coil temperature
remains below the dew point. With the traditional approach, the temperature can go
well below the dew point resulting in inef?cient operation. High-effciency systems use
a variable speed compressor to tightly regulate the condensation coil temperature just
below the dew point. This new approach trades the increased cost and complexity of a
variable speed compressor for increased effciency. Our technology uses a
conventional refrigeration compressor operating in the off/on control mode to cool an
intermediate ?uid reservoir. Fluid from this reservoir is pumped at a controlled, variable
rate through the condensation coils such that the temperature remains ?xed at just
below the dew point. This allows close regulation of condensation coil temperature
while using conventional refrigeration technology.
Adaptive control strategy for atmospheric water generation
State-of-the-art systems allow the user to define the environmental conditions at which
atmospheric water generation will take place. These systems will only attempt to
generate water when the relative humidity is above a threshold level This establishes a
minimum effciency level for water generation. While this approach insures a minimum
ef?ciency, it is our intent to take this a step further. Our invention generates water when
the conditions are best rather than simply good. To do this an internal microprocessor
continually records the daily humidity and temperature measurements and selects the
optimal time to operate the machine. This smarter approach further increases the
effective ef?ciency and ultimately reduce the cost of generating water.
High-efficiency water generator motor drive
Maximizing the effciency of atmospheric water generation systems is critically
important to our customers. Getting the most water per unit energy is the figure of
merit for which AWS will be judged. The electronic circuitry necessary for variable
speed compressors and air circulation devices involves considerable complexity and
cost. The circuitry converts fixed frequency alternating current power from the mains to
direct current and then back to alternating current with a variable frequency. Driving
compressors and fans/blowers with this variable frequency power allows the speed to
be adjusted. Rather than adjusting the frequency, our motor drive invention utilizes a
much simpler motor speed adjustment circuit in conjunction with a control strategy that
has been tailored to the requirements necessary for atmospheric water generation. This
combination allows for an overall reduction of cost and complexity.
Self-Cleaning atmospheric water generation system
Minimizing the requirement for periodic maintenance and system cleaning is necessary
for widespread market acceptance of our equipment. Currently, atmospheric water
systems require customers to clean various tanks, trays and delicate coils more often
than desired increasing maintenance time and costs. Our innovative approach reduces
periodic cleaning by continually and automatically disinfecting all water contact
surfaces without user intervention.
HOW THE CLOUDBURSTE® WORKS:
Humid inlet air enters the unit through a set of louvers where it
passes through an air filter and comes into contact with the water
condenser coils. These coils are cooled to just below the dew point
temperature of the inlet air by an industrial refrigeration system. Water
condenses on the coils and is collected, is pressurized and passed
through a series of filters to remove sediment and chemical
contaminants. The water is subjected to high intensity, broad spectrum
ultraviolet light (UVC) to destroy microbial organisms and pathogens
prior to flowing out of the unit for storage and distribution.
Cooled, dry air flowing past the water condenser coils is drawn
across the compressor by an array of venturi fans to make contact
with the refrigeration condenser coils. These coils recover a substantial
portion of the thermal energy left over after the water condensation
process. The now warm, dry air is exhausted through another set of
louvers on the opposite side of the unit.
Periodically, the unit will sanitize all the water in the system using
the AWS WPS (water posing system) process.
The operational control and monitoring of the status of the unit is
performed using a computerized systems analysis program and
interactive display.or wind power.
