Air-to-water technology is the process of converting water vapor in the air (humidity) to water. Akvo atmospheric water generators replicates this natural process of condensation by simulating the dew point, which allows it to make water continuously, even in low humidity conditions.
There’s approximately 3100 cubic miles (mi3) or 12,900 cubic kilometers (km3) of water in the atmosphere. Water vapor is an unlimited resource constantly replenished by nature’s hydrologic cycle. Akvo atmospheric water generators can extract water from air indefinitely without impacting the planet.
The two key ingredients to make water are humidity and temperature. For the best results, it’s important that your machine be located in a well-ventilated area. Ideal operating conditions are a temperature between 21º C to 32º C and relative humidity between 40% to 100%.
When the humidity is low, all air to water machines are challenged. Akvo machines are not designed for dry or cold climates and are not marketed there. Generally there are some days with low humidity even in ideal regions of the world.
Akvo atmospheric water generators have a 1 year limited manufacturer warranty. Nature's AWS offers regular maintenance and service plans.
With proper maintenance Akvo atmospheric water generators can operate for several years. Comparable to the life of a car or major appliance, the Akvo atmospheric water generator should last from 10 – 15 years. There are very few moving parts. The lifespan of the machines will depend primarily on the maintenance of the compressor.
The Akvo’s 1000 LPD Machine runs on approximately 7 -10 kilowatts per hour. It operates on 50hz or 60hz and either 208 – 240V (single phase) or 380 – 440V (3-phase). This power can be supplied directly or from a generator for portability.
