East Bay Business Makes Water From Thin Air — Literally!

“Imagine a glass of ice water on a warm day, how condensation accumulates on the outside,” that’s the science behind the products, Jepsen said.

“The basics of the machine are that it draws in air with a fan, then condenses it … That condensation drips into a collection tank. It then pumps through carbon and reverse osmosis filters to a holding tank that contains UV light, three total in the system,” Jepsen said.

And, voila! You have water!

Residential machines run about $1,300 and up and can create up to 8 gallons of water a day, when humidity in the air is about 70 percent, Jepsen said. Some industrial models can create up to 66 to 2,600 gallons a day.

“Imagínese unvaso de agua heladoen un día cálido, cómola condensaciónse acumulaen el exterior,” esa es laciencia detrás de losproductos, dice Jepsen.

“ Los fundamentos de la máquina son que jala el aire con un ventilador, y luego se condensa…. Esacondensacióngotea enun depósito de acumulación. Luego bombea a través de carbón y filtros de ósmosis inversa a un tanque de retención que contienela luz UV, tres en totalenel sistema ” dice Jepsen.
