WaterFromAir technology is unique, as no other air-to-water technology products are offered commercially in the U.S. or International markets. WaterFromAir technology maximizes temperature, airflow, and surface area for optimum water production.

A condensation unit receives humid airflow and condenses water vapor into liquid. This process is known as atmospheric condensation. Water is filtered and treated by bacteria-killing devices such as ultraviolet light before it can be dispensed. Water produced by the WaterFromAir water generation machines is pure and safe for human consumption and meets established U.S. and International Public Health standards, including the NSF 53 standard. NSF 53 is the top U.S. benchmark for drinking water and includes the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOC's).

Volatile Organic Compound pollutants are removed by two (2) NSF 53 approved filters. Volatile organic chemicals such as Ether have proven extremely difficult to remove by filtration methods of the past, but will not be present in the water generated by an WaterFromAir water generation machine.

The Technology Driven by Aquovator™

During aquovation™, water is extracted from naturally present moisture in the air, treated with UV technology and circulated continually through the proprietary Hyflux™ Filtration Cartridge (HFC) to attain its purest state.

Engineered on Hyflux™ proprietary membrane and ultraviolet disinfection technologies, aquovate™ technology is optimised to remove a wide range of contaminants, including chemicals, odours, sediment and other particulate matter.
  1. Ambient air is pulled through a patented antibacterial filter to remove airborne particles and contaminants. Besides harmful bacteria such as airborne viruses, dragon-fly™ also removes excess humidity for a safer, more comfortable environment. With less moisture in the air, your air-conditioning electrical consumption is lowered as less energy is used to cool the environment.
  2. Vapour in the air is condensed in a collection tray and disinfected with UV light. The resulting water then passes through the proprietary HFC to remove organics odours and dissolved impurities. Most of the fine waterborne contaminants including bacteria, viruses, parasites and other disease-causing agents, are removed when the water is sent through Hyflux™ Ultrafiltration membranes. The system also contains granulated activated carbons to remove total organic carbons, foul tastes, odours and colour. UV disinfection occurs for a second time.
  3. As a final safeguard measure, water is disinfected with UV light in the storage tank to ensure the removal of bacteria and viruses before it is pumped into the hot & cold tank, ready for dispensing.
If not consumed, stored aquovated water in the cold tank is re-circulated through the HFC and UV light to retain its optimum purity and freshness.

ULTRA VIOLET TECHNOLOGY

Ultraviolet treatment, in most cases is the most important step in the any purification process. The Aquovation™ technology first exposes water to 2 rounds of intense dosage of UV light which acts as a highly effective germicidal sterilant and destroys viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae and protozoa.

HOW?
  • UV light destroys a microorganism by scrambling its DNA structure
  • The cells are rendered sterile and cannot reproduce
  • The cells are dead and no longer a threat
ULTRAVIOLET WAVELENGTHS

Ultraviolet light happens all around us naturally in sunlight. The light is divided by wavelengths into three bands: A, B and C. Out of these three wavelengths, Uvc is the shortest, and therefore the most powerful light. Short wave ultraviolet in the region of 253.7 nanometers is lethal to microorganisms including bacteria, protozoa, viruses, moulds, yeasts, nematode eggs and algae.

Short UV wavelengths in the region of 253.7 nanometers are lethal to microorganisms including bacteria, nematode eggs, viruses, moulds, and algae 3.

Wavelengths in the range of 260 to 265 nanometers are most effective in killing microbes. By damaging their DNA, UV light prevents bacteria and viruses from duplicating. A cell that cannot reproduce is considered dead as it is unable to multiply to infectious numbers within a host.

UV technology is therefore held as an effective and efficient way of destroying bacteria in water. It is often used in ultra pure water systems for disinfection and removal of organics.

"Known carcinogens are found in drinking water as a direct consequence of chlorination, a long established public health practice for the disinfection of drinking water."
