Atmospheric water generatorDate: 17 December 2019 Tags: Miscellaneous
The South Central Railway has installed “Atmospheric Water Generator” kiosk in Secunderabad Railway station.
This kiosk is installed as part of the green initiatives & water conservation measures and developed under “make in India” concept by ‘Maithri Aquatech’ and named as “MEGHDOOT”.
In this system, instead of taking source water for filtration and consumption, the water is directly harvested from the air through a series of steps.
Under this, air flows into the machine through a filtration system duly filtering out the contaminants present in the moisture laden air.
Then the filtered air passes through cooling chamber where in the air will be condensed. The condensed air is converted into water and drops into a storage tank provided for the purpose.
The dropped water from the tank passes through multiple level filtration which removes odour and any other impurities and then it passes through Ultra Violet (UV) system.
The filtered water is dosed with essential minerals which are beneficial before it can be dispensed for consumption.
The water produced under this system fulfils the WHO norms and also Indian standards for consumption. It is also approved by Ministry of Jal Shakti as a safe and healthy drinking water.
Industries which require travel, such as the military, can use an atmospheric water generator to create water when resources run low.
One of the biggest advantages of Atmospheric Water Generators are the cost efficiency of the device.There is no additional operating expenses, and because the atmospheric water generator is autonomous.
There are no contamination by heavy metals or microbes as in the case of ground or surface water sources.
