Atmospheric Water Generators and The Second Step of Water Purification
The Earth’s Atmosphere contains at least 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 1% argon, and small amounts of carbon dioxide and other gases. It also consists from 1% up to 4% of water, depending on the humidity of the area. In most cities, industrial areas and over populated areas, there can be significant amounts of Air pollution and particles such sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, particulates, and chlorofluorocarbons can be found in the air. These particles are highly intoxicating and dangerous to the human body. Because these compounds are in the air, it’s inevitable that it’ll break down and form with the water that’s also in the air.
Here we see that there’s a great need for a water system that can take the water from the air and filter it so that it’s clean enough for our daily use.
The EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator is segmented into 12 organic filtration steps, to ensure safety.
In the first series of the Atmospheric Water Generator system, we covered the first step of water purification, which is the Electrostatic Air Filter. We also explained what an Atmospheric Water Generator is. As a recap, read up on Atmospheric Water Generators and The First Step of Water Purification.
In this article, we’ll be looking at the second step of our Atmospheric Water Generator’s water purification system, the bottom tank filter.
The bottom tank filter in the atmospheric water generator system, is the carbon bag in the bottom tank that removes ammonia, chlorine residues, organic compounds and other volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) from the water in the tank.
Volatile organic compounds need to be removed from water because they contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, sulfur or nitrogen and they easily become vapors or gases. These organic compounds are by-products of burning fuels such as gasoline, wood, coal, burning oil, and diesel.
Volatile organic compounds at levels higher than the health risk limits, may be harmful to the central nervous system, kidneys or liver. VOCs may also cause irritation when they contact the skin, or may irritate mucous membranes if they are inhaled. Some volatile organic compounds are even suspected to be cancerous. Therefore, it’s important for the bottom tank filter to get rid of these compounds.
