How it Works

The Atmospheric Water Generator is a humidity and temperature-driven Appliance. This means the Appliances ability to generate water depends entirely on the level of humidity and atmospheric temperature. To achieve optimum performance, the indicated relative humidity should be at least 50% or more. In regions with lower humidity levels, the Appliance will produce water at a slower rate and with less volume than that of a higher humidity environment. In a residential environment, higher levels of humidity tend to be found in kitchen areas, near bathrooms used for bathing, near open windows (in warmer weather), or in more spacious rooms.

 

This unit also performs well in an air-conditioned room or homes. Because air-conditioning reduces relative humidity, it is recommended to open the window at night to increase the humidity in the room. Because the Atmospheric Water Generator works by converting humidity in the air to water, this unit also acts as an effective dehumidifier. To ensure high quality of the drinking water produced, the Atmospheric Water Generator utilizes multiple filtration technologies (see below).

 

When the air is dry and cold, water generation may become slow and inefficient. It is recommended that the Appliance be connected to a municipal water supply allowing the Appliance to serve as a water purifier using its filtration system.

EcoloBlue is the only company that offers 12 steps of powerful, organic filtration.

The Air Around You

The air has a lot of water in it but also a lot of dust and other micro-particles. The powerful fan takes in a large amount of air and to minimize the intake of all the impurities, the EB30 series starts the filtration process with the Electrostatic air filter

1. Electrostatic Air Filter

The electrostatic air filter effectively prevents micro-particles and dust from entering the appliance. Being cleaned of all those impurities, the air then flows over a set of Condenser coils

Condenser Coils

They are covered with a food grade coating, to minimize interaction between water and the metals used for the cooling coils. Using these coils, allows the water to condense from a vapor into a liquid.

Water

The water squeezed from air, is full of minor impurities and micro-organisms. All generated water is stored in the Bottom Tank

2. Bottom Tank Filter

The carbon bag in the bottom tank, starts to remove ammonia, chlorine residues, organic compounds and other VOCs.

3. Lower tank UV Lamp

The filtered water is collected into a 2 liter tank. The water gets treated with UV light, which kills bacteria, viruses, protozoa, mold spores, and inhibits bacteria growth in the reservoir.

4. Funnel Filter

After getting treated with UV light, the water is pumped through the funnel filter (removes micro-particles before water enters the water pump) into a series of 2 carbon charcoal filters, a reverse osmosis membrane, a mineral filter, and a final carbon charcoal filter.

Let’s take a closer look at the individual filters

5. EF1 Sediment Filter

Removes rust, sand, dust, impurity have 5~10㎛ size.
Removes Odor and Taste.
Removes organic compounds, chlorine, heavy metals.

6. EF2 Pre-Carbon filter

Reduces Chlorine, trihalomethane (THM) and organic compounds
Removes bad smell, taste, and color.
Removes heavy metals.

7. Reverse Osmosis Membrane

Removes bacteria, viruses, organic compounds, heavy metal and ion substances by 0.0001㎛ pore size on the membrane.

8. EF4 Mineral Filter

Anti-bacterial, absorption and filtration properties.
Mineral Elution: Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium.

9. EF3 Post-Carbon

Reduces Chlorine, trihalomethane (THM) and organic compounds.
Removes bad smell and taste and color.
Removes heavy metals.

10. Top Tank and UV Lamp

After going through this set of filters, the water goes to a holding tank that is periodically exposed to UV light to minimize or eliminate bacteria growth in the unit.

11. Water Output UV Lamp

When dispensing water from the top tank, the water is again treated by another UV light.

12. Molecular Sieve Faucet Filter

The faucet filter is equipped with two molecular sieves (screens) to trap any fine particles that may be suspended in the water, before you dispense into your glass.

What if you don’t want cold water ?

Hot Tank

There is a separate tank that holds the hot water. The temperature of the water is programmable between75°~95° C (167°~203° F).
